    Oysters were completely tasteless. Prawn linguine was tasteless. It was just cooked linguine with one prawn cut up into small pieces. There was no sauce and it just tasted of nothing. Spaghetti bolognaise virtually had no meat and sauce. The bread and butter pudding was very nice though.

    Nice restaurant in the heart of Nottinghams trendy lace market district good ambience & decor let down by poor service & food. Not helping the situation was a very large and noisy group who kept the waiting staff on their toes. We had to wait 30 minutes for our table so we sat at the bar and had a nice cocktail and barman was great when we sat the starters were very nice but slow to arrive so we didn’t start eating until well over an hour after we arrived. The mains were poor we both had steak which were over cooked , we should have but we didn’t complain because you couldn’t help feel sorry for the waiters and waitresses trying to cope with the large group. All in all disappointed, was it just a bad night and will we go back , I don’t know it’s not a cheap restaurant and do we want to risk it again maybe not

    Excellent food, big portions, however the service could have been better. Long wait for drinks and bill from waiter, however food was brought swiftly and was delicious. We had starters and mains, however couldn’t finish our mains due to the large portions. We would just have mains if we were to return. Would recommend

    The service and ambience were amazing! From the moment we walked in we were welcomed in and they took notice that we were celebrating a birthday, offered us free glasses of Prosecco and also put a candle in the dessert and sang Happy Birthday! Portion sizes were perfect and food came out very quickly. Food was also excellent. The waitress also made great recommendations and was so kind. Overall was a great experience and will definitely be returning.

    The food was to perfection, definitely a great place to go if you’re having a special occasion. The wine is lovely too, all have a good taste and pair well with all dishes. The service is also fantastic, the staff are very friendly and make sure they take into account if you have any allergies so your meal choices are considered with importance. Our waiter Daniel was very pleasant and very professional. Only comment would be limited dessert options if you have a nut allergy, although it’s just how the desserts are.
