Food and ambience were top-tier, but it was fairly apparent that the restaurant was understaffed which led to delays and difficulties having water refilled, ordering drinks, etc. Staff were absolutely lovely, just put in a tough position by the forces that be. Would definitely recommend tho!

We had a nice corner table but the couch was slightly uncomfortable. The pizza wasn’t great there was about 2,000 pepperonis on it and they were cheap tasting. But the goats cheese starter was one of the nicest starters ever!

It looks they have revised some of their dishes in comparison to my previous visits . The food was absolutely amazing . And portion sizes were sufficient if you wanted a starter , main and dessert . Starters and Desserts arrived fairly quickly but mains took abit longer . They offered free drinks to compensate for the longer lead time on the main. Ambience amazing . Lovely night , lovely experience , good service and excellent food .

Thank you Isabelles :)

Nice food but had no oatmilk for coffee and also had no waffle for brunch. Couldn’t swap one item for another on brunch menu. Disappointing

Isabelle's
Responded on 22 September 2021

Apologies for the lack of Oatmilk Orls, we have made sure there will always be oat/soy/almond milk in stock from now one. Just in regards to not swapping items - I understand your frustration however its difficult to do almost 300 covers for Brunch when tables make their own alterations to dishes it really does slow down cooking time for everyone Thanks again for the feedback Isabelle's

Came for dinner Friday night, food was absolutely amazing :) within a couple of minutes of being seated & given menu, Danny had our drinks order taken and brought down to us. Our food was excellent, didn't have to wait long between courses but not rushed either, the goats cheese Panna cotta starter was certainly different but really good, my fiance got the arrancini and pepperoni pizza and they were amazing! :) dessert took a little longer to come out but honestly we didn't even notice, Danny came over & apologised for the wait but they were worth it! Excellent service, excellent food can't wait to come back!

We ate on the outdoor terrace. It is a lovely environment - private and cosy (great heaters) and feels a safe space in context of Covid.
We had lovely service, very good food, and a very enjoyable evening.

I remember this restaurant to be good food and good ambience but this time, while the ambiance was still good, the food was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! Kudos to the chef, probably used the looong lockdown to up the game but was seriously shocked by how good the food had become.

Food was really good! Staff were lovely. The only slight issue is that both doors were open and it left the restaurant very cold but we asked to move tables and we were without any hassle, and our food needed to be “delayed” due to the busy kitchen but the manager told us so we were aware and we were happy to wait. Always good to tell customers around those issues

Service was very slow, we got our dessert menu but had to chase down the waitress but ended up getting someone else to take the order but then we're rushed to finish our drinks because they needed the table.

Flexibility with the menu is really needed. Swapping of items should not be so difficult.
Overall expensive for what we got but the food was good
