Couldn’t believe it when the bill came!!! The mains were a pasta dish and a chicken dish! Go somewhere else as this is far too pricey for what it is.

It is more like a music club with a restaurant attached to it. Yes, there is a piano somewhere which is utilized only some of the days. During our visit loud oriental (as well as greek) dance music was blasting through speakers! Although loud it did not interfere with the food enjoyment next room. The food is exceptional – covering most desires and cooked to order. Good portions too. Deserts on the other hand didn’t offer something extraordinary but they were good. The environment is clean and not cramped but it could use some uplifting. Service needs to be commended too – highly friendly people. Pricewise is categorized on the expensive side.

Our waiter was chatty and nice. At about 9pm, became a bit of a club theme, it went from a piano elegant feel to an Ibiza night! Not sure about that mix.

Parts of the food were missing and food (we went for breakfast) was poor quality. I live in Bath and arranged to meet friends who had travelled from London. It was my recommendation and I was very embarrassed.

The Brunch menu still runs until 4pm which worked well for us and the steak egg and fries was tasty and OK for value. Perhaps a side dish of vegetables could have been promoted too. Dessert was tasty as well.

On this occasion the waitress was very blunt and unfriendly from the moment we walked in to being presented with the bill (service charge was included) despite not having requested it.
