    Really professional and friendly staff. Excellent food and service. A bit pricy, but you get what you pay for. Personal thing with me is its just a little too female oriented with the decor and the flowers. But you'll love it if you are of the fairer sex.

    Food was well below par. Korean chicken couldn’t even be cut with a normal knife that was given as it was burnt and covered in sauce. Chicken on the other hand had no sauce whatsoever. Battered fish was tasteless. Steak was nice. Starters were blah no real taste off the prawns at all. Best part was dessert although the extremely thin layer of crème brûlée was very disappointing as it was lovely. Overall place decor is fabulous it’s just a pity the food was not good at all

    Very eclectic decor in this restaurant which served a great variety of dishes. The food and service was great, staff were very attentive. It was however marred by misunderstanding when the bill came as our party of 5 had been given three menus and a la carte, specials and early bird. At the end of the specials menu they'd written that the 2 course early bird was 28 and three course was 33. We naturally assumed it referred to the menu listed above on the sheet we were given which wasn't the case. It was a bit misleading and clearly a regular occurrence as staff were quick to point out our mistake. The meal was great but double check the price of what was chosen. Also 16 special rate for two virgin mojitos or 8.50 for one was an outrage. A bill for 5 with 4 2 course early birds and 3 specials, 3 virgin cocktails, a coffee one dessert and a glass of red wine split between 5 with a 10% tip was 59 each. Saying that I would go back again.

    I went for my birthday meal with my friends and had a great night! Our waiter was amazing, unfortunately I didn’t get his name but he was so lovely and funny and made sure we had everything we wanted. The food was lovely and the portions were a really good size. The pornstar martinis were lovely too! Had a great night thanks so much !

    We attended The Betsy for my daughter's communion day. The staff went above and beyond to make sure she felt special, the waiters and staff made such a fuss of her. She had a free mocktail, sparklers in her dessert, a round of applause and a hand written card with a generous gift inside. They knew her name from the time she arrived and we all enjoyed it immensely. The food was delicious and great value and the décor is so beautiful there were any amount of photo opportunities available. I would highly recommend the Betsy for any special occasion.

    5 star treatment as always in The Betsy. Thank you Aga and Rocky for looking after us, you guys are always amazing! Excellent food, amazing service and great time was had by all. Their fantastic staff is their selling point (Aga and Rocky in particular) for us but the ambience and food are top class too! Can't recommend The Betsy highly enough for any night out or celebration.
