    The building is gorgeous and the interior design is great, the tables are well spaced out so you're not too close to your neighbours and don't end up listening in on other conversations. The food was great for brunch, don't know if there's a different menu in the evening but it was really tasty and a bit different from other spots in the area. The staff were a little slow and made some minor mistakes, like bringing tea without any sugar or spoons so I had to stir my sugar in with the end of my fork at one point. But otherwise it was all at a great price point and really tasty!

    No longer serving the brunch menu discussed here and highlighted on their website and instead just serving a simple hotel style breakfast buffet - not quite the shakshuka we wanted!

    Buffet only for breakfast, which was about the same choice as a Premier Inn, so none of the tempting items from the website. Disappointing

    Food was very good, but menu is limited, beautiful place though The background music was a little to dancy for a Friday dinner. Service by Mario/Amario was poor, he got defensive if questioned. Had to be reminded twice to bring things over. We didn't pay service charge due to this and this also triggered him.

    Great food, but were really understaffed and disorganised when we went, and really struggled with basic service unfortunately - water, getting the order right, really long wait between courses with no explanation. Surely would have been a nicer experience at a less busy time

    Food was good and enjoyed by group but unfortunately didn’t realise the menu had changed so was a little disappointed. The brunch menu noticed had also changed and some of the items I enjoyed no longer available- hoping at least the rib burger will make a reappearance. The halal labeling has also gone and for me that was a big plus and very helpful.

    I was so looking forward to try this place but unfortunately my friends and are ere disappointed. The restaurant looks great but the food is not. Small portions and poor quality. I had steak and fries. I've asked for medium and instead it was well cooked and it was poor quality. Also the waitress requires a bit of training. She didn't know what a sauce in the menu was and made a comment when my friend ordered fry up but requested no tomatoes or mushrooms(allergies) and the waitress asked her what was the point of ordering that then instead of suggesting replacements. Don't think I'll go again.

    Very disappointed with the food… We booked a table having looked at the menu online, which had lots of interesting breakfast dishes (e.g shakshouka etc). When we arrived at the restaurant we learned they were only serving a buffet breakfast - and this was a very basic buffet at best… very little choice and not the best quality either. The staff were nice and friendly but this was not the experience we were expecting. Shame.

    I would not recommend travelling for brunch to the venue especially, the venue is beautiful but ordering the turkish platter was a mistake- a big silver tray with simple breakfast and pastries need to be thought through, but for someone who is new to Med food they will love it ! service - hit and miss , a slight uppity attitude by some service your worried to speak up. Hotel is gorgeous though and clean.

    Very tasteful fitout of the restaurant with a lovely atmosphere. Service started out very attentive with two waiters serving our table of 3 pax, however, as it got busier, it became harder to get anyone's attention. The food was divine with every dish done to perfection. Nicest toilets btw.

    Despite the food being on the upper end of good - it wasn’t mind blowing… but the bill was! I really don’t mind paying good money for an amazing meal, but this was stupid money for a ‘good’ meal - in a restaurant the temperature of the sun. The service was friendly but perhaps inattentive, I.e. we had to wait to see someone to grab their attention to order drinks and there was a bit of plastic in one of our deserts (we graciously accepted said dessert being credited off the menu). The only thing that blew me away was the price tag.

    Took me 3 days to get a hold of someone who could tell me what the advertised ‘set menu’ consisted of - nothing to be found on the site. Eventually booked online as a surprise for my wife. Received iCal confirmation, email AND text notifications regarding my booking, but when we travelled in especially for it it was shut! Was lucky enough to find another restaurant on the same road that could have us. Looks beautiful inside and am sure/hope the food is lovely, but my experience was shambolic enough that I shan’t be attempting another booking in future.

    Beautiful restaurant in a good location. The sirloin, lamb rump and harra batata were the real winners. Absolutely beautiful meat cooked to perfection. Wasn't really fond of the prawn starters or the virgin mojito. Next time I would probably stick to the steak, lamb and potatoes. Customer service was excellent.
