Been here a few times always been a nice experience… bar service was bit slow today but to be expected in busy days. Food was good but menu could be a bit bigger.
Cocktails amazing as always and staff very friendly.

Good atmosphere Food nice although quite a limited basic menu .

Service could have been a little more prompt especially for £12 for a Gin and Tonic .

Waiters were friendly just needed a couple more of them

Generally the atmosphere and ambience were very nice
The food was plentiful and well presented. I ordered a burger, which I had ordered on another occasion, but this time it was a little bit dry. The live saxophonist was a little bit too loud we couldn’t have a good conversation. The music choice was very good, even though it was very loud.
My friends ordered the mixed grill which was very nice too and very filling. The staff were very attentive and overall we enjoyed the evening.

Tried The Lava Lounge out with my husband as we were looking for a venue to take some friends for a night out in a few weeks time. The food was excellent as was the service, staff very pleasant and chatty. Gave 4 stars overall only because the music and saxophonist were a little too loud so it’s not somewhere we could take friends as we wouldn’t be able to chat. Will definitely go back with my husband though as food was superb!

Went on Saturday night and there was no Sax player. Very disappointed. Ruined the night basically.

Waiter’s kept hovering around for empty glasses - which was annoying!

Not a good experience!!!

Went there for a very special date. It surpassed both our expectations. Great vibe, good food, really well priced wine and great service. Special mention to the doorman who set the tone of good service that our waiters followed with. We will be back, with friends this time!

Food was great but took an age for the bottle of wine we ordered to arrive. Also last orders at 10.30 even though open til 12! Consequently lack of atmosphere in the bar towards the end of the night. Overall a good local night out and should improve once the lockdown restrictions go.

Been a few times and it’s a and foods good. Service was slow, the waitress was lovely but short staffed. Better to spend money on more waiting staff and get rid of live music! It’s too loud for restaurant, had to ask 4 different occasions to turn it down. At least if it’s songs be entertaining but it’s always reminds me of elevator background noise. Also it was an electric guitar t

Great place, food and atmosphere. The staff was very friendly, attentive and helpful. Great live music. The only let down was the state of the toilets. It didn’t look like it was being checked through the night, and there was a lot of water on the floor making it very difficult to use the toilet without wetting the bottom of your trousers/dresses. One toilet didn’t flush which you only realise after you use it.

We booked for our anniversary and on arrival were greeted by some very polite security who wished us congrats. More congrats inside and 2 free glasses of bubbles. Service was fantastic. There's a funky garden area with pink neon signs and a lady walking round playing the sax - very Ibiza! Cocktails were well made and not too £££. Menu was slightly limited and for the price we expected a bit more meat on the Chateaubriand, but well cooked and tasty. All in all a great night out and would definitely go back.

I've left previous positive reviews. Not so good tonight. told restaurant stopped making expresso martini's why? Took a while to attract attentions of staff to buy wine, or other cocktails. Bouncer is a bouncer. its not a night club, why do you need a bouncer? Does help ambiance ! Loads of free tables outside, but told we couldn't have an outside table, even though we requested at time of booking and also walking in.
