Average.

The chips were too salty and the burger was also too salty.
The ambiance was not great.

We saw the Sunday 2 for 1 on burgers and pizza deal and decided to give it a try. Booked online which was painless. Staff were very attentive, friendly and professional. Food was excellent, we had burgers but looking at tables around us the pizzas and various other options looked very good. Good variety of meat, veggie and vegan dishes and cocktail menu looked good and was extensive. Both food and drinks well priced. Brilliant!

Very good food and service. When I looked at menu initially disappointed it was just burgers and pizza mainly but… WHAT a burger you are served.

Only downside was no WiFi but prob shouldn’t be on my phone on a date anyway.

Really busy Sunday evening booking before going to the cinema. Waitress was lovely and run off her feet. Tried hard obviously whilst they were so busy. The music was too loud we had to shout at one another over the table. One of my sons burger was quite burned and his chips looked like they were bottom of the barrel, been the crispy bits and left there for a long time, and my husband and I had pizza which had limited toppings and we didn’t feel was worth it, but it was 2 for 1 on a Sunday, but really I’d have paid full price to have a filled pizza. Nice atmosphere, they accept dogs inside the restaurant and the dog got a drink of water but we never got our second round of drinks that we ordered. It was a nice place good food in general and we enjoyed it but wouldn’t be my first choice in Dundee next time. Good offers on 2 for 1 and deals through the week though. If I recommended to a friend I would just warn them of these issues prior to them going.

Great quality, freshly cooked food. Reasonably priced and good portion size too. Didn’t sample the cocktails but the list was reasonably priced and I saw some being freshly made. Staff really friendly and helpful. Good music too. Will definitely be back.

Lovely restaurant with quick service and friendly staff. £12 for a burger is a bit steep, but couldn’t fault the food and the 2 for 1 deal makes for much better value. Would highly recommend and will undoubtedly be back to try a pizza because they looked amazing.

We waited quite a while for our food, 3 tables that ordered after us were served their food first when the food did come the pizzas were undercooked. Then a woman staff at the end who we hadn’t seen throughout our meal came up and told us we had to leave for the next table coming in and we had barely finished our meals.

Won’t be back

Not the first time I have been but the first time since the menu changes. The buffalo chicken, trio of fries and halloumi are delicious. However, the pepperoni pizza had far too much pepperoni that it was really greasy and almost inedible. I’m talking 6/7 slices on top of each other. I couldn’t eat it. The cheese and garlic bread also didn’t taste of garlic. It was bland and went hard quickly. It’s a shame because the pizza was always great and the doughballs were my go to but they don’t sell them anymore. The staff very wonderful, price was great and the drinks were good. Next time I’ll get a burger and avoid the pizza.

I love the balsamic pizza, its sooo good. We went on Tuesday and got pizza and a pint / draught soft drink for £7, so awesome value.

Would like to see more vegan options though, especially desserts as they only have sorbet. Some sort of cake or or ice cream would be nice.

2nd time I’ve been here and the exact same thing happened as last time. There was a “mistake” and our order was never sent to the kitchen and we waited over 90 minutes before they realised their mistake. I’m not sure if this is some bizarre coincidence that it’s happened to me twice or if it’s a regular problem for them. The food was decent when it eventually arrived, and we were given a free round of drinks for their mistake. The waitresses were all lovely (especially the girl who was wearing the two buns in her hair!! 10/10) but I sadly don’t think I’ll be back again because of what happened.

Food was good but disappointed that we were stuck at a drinks table for a family of 4 that were out for lunch. Booked a few weeks in advance so thought we would have been allocated a better table. There was also a big draft coming from the door outside making a bit uncomfortable. Service and food were good

Was disappointed because checked the menu via link sent with confirmation and saw Pasta dishes listed. We were not offered this choice as menu only had Starters, Pizza, Burgers or Vegan. Not sure if I would recommend this restaurant to friends, only choice below is Yes or No so had to go with no, maybe a Not Sure option offered.

Have been here before and really enjoyed it however we were sat down last night no one came for over 15 mins to take our drink order I had to call them over, food was good but had chicken wings nothing to clean our hands with. Service was very poor asked for ice in the glass didn’t do it, then asked them to bag up my sons pizza that he didn’t finish they didn’t do that but just came with the bill, clearly binned it. Afraid we won’t ever be returning,

Lovely venue, beautifully decorated with polite staff and good music, however food order was lost and we ended up waiting 1.5 hour for food, then ham hock had a bone in it and therefore couldn’t enjoy it 😞 such a shame, seemed like a very busy and stressful night for the staff!

Went here for drinks. Good choice, reasonable prices for them and you get quite a lot for your money. Place looks amazing with all the flowers. Wasn’t too busy and had a good atmosphere about the place. Would recommend if you were looking for somewhere to go as a couple or a group of girl friends.

All the staff we brilliant, super friendly.
Food was lovely, one of the better meals I've had in Dundee however £11.25 for brisket topped fries is quite expensive.

Drinks were really good also.

Only down side was the toilets, we visited at 5 and by this point they weren't all that clean.
