    Lovely little place staff very welcoming and service was excellent food was good but the prawns in the pil pil were not king prawns they were too small ! The patas bravas needs to be bigger but was very tasty! Meatballs were a bit hard so wasn’t our favourite but the rest was lovely ! We would go back to be fair cocktails were amazing

    Decor was nice, staff were very friendly, however it seemed a big chaotic. There was a table of very drunk, very loud women, this was at 5pm, they were oblivious to anyone else, although the establishment cannot be blamed for their behaviour, they should at least attempt to ask others to be respectful of other dinners The food was fine some dishes better than others. The worst thing is that you only have a short window of 2 hours, to order and to eat, before being asked to vacate the table, as there is nowhere else to sit and have a drink, you are being asked to leave the building. it felt more of a fast food experience. Nice enough but not sure I would return.

    We could not fault the food , it was all delicious. We were a party of six on a Saturday afternoon and although the service was great , I think they needed another server. If I wanted a quiet meal with my husband , I would have asked to be moved as a very noisy bottomless brunch were on the next table. That said I will definitely be visiting again.

    Lovely tapas bar/restaurant in the heart of Newport. Plenty of options to choose from both on the food and drink menu. The restaurant was very quiet on a Wednesday evening and the service was impeccable.

    Restaurant looks nice, clean and modern in style plenty of room between tables and a nice bar. Our order was taken and drinks brought, good menu with plenty of choice. We had high hopes. 55 minutes later we still had not seen our food, neither had the people behind us and the people behind them were complaining about the time it had taken for them to get served. The staff all seemed to be in the open kitchen, eating and talking, there was no one at the bar so we waited for drinks. Finally some food arrived, it was luke warm, it was ok, but despite the promise of handmade etc etc as per the menu, I am pretty sure most of the food was straight out of a freezer bag. Despite still waiting for one plate of food to appear a staff member came to put a notice on our table and remind us we had to vacate the table.... didnt go down well and the woman was very argumentative with us. We asked to cancel remaining food and to have a reduced bill and put our coats on... enough is enough. They brought the wrong bill, and walked off even though we were obviously waiting to leave. So we left the money for the wrong bill on the table and left. Give this place a massive swerve, its a shame, I really wanted this to work, but it was awful.

    Had a lovely experience at the Tickled Trout yesterday. We decided to go at 5.00 pm and it was very quiet in the restaurant only one other couple in there. As it was a weekday we didn’t expect it to be full. The food was very tasty and presented beautifully, we ordered 3 plates each and found this to be plenty for 2 people. Staff were very friendly and explained the menus to us, very enjoyable evening and will definitely be back for another visit.

    Beautiful food! I absolutely love this restaurant and I have been here twice since they opened! It was very romantic on Valentines Day with lovely music playing, a free rose and chocolates - we had a fantastic evening! My only critique would be that the tables for 2 at the front of the restaurant are a bit too close together which made it difficult to get out for the toilet etc and felt a bit close to the next couple! But overall a very positive experience and I can’t wait to visit again in the future! X

    Arrived. F.o.h. appears surprised to see us given we had a reservation. Moved another later reservation and seated us. When we requested a different table we discovered that the preferred table actually WAS reserved for us. Waitress came to take our order. Asked her how many dishes we should be aiming for. She laughed and said she hadn't a cluecit was her first day and then disappeared. Second waitress appeared and asked us what we wanted to order. I asked again how many dishes 4 of us should be aiming for. She suggested 10 to 12. We had 6 we wanted to try and asked if it was OK to try these and order some more. She agreed it was fine. Took our drinks order. 2 pints of lager and 2 cokes. Drinks order arrived. 1 pint and 2 cokes. No opportunity to catch the waitress to request the 2nd pint. Food arrived. It was alright but we needed to order more. No check ins to see if we wanted further food or drink. So we went to the bar and settled. Even then no ask for how our night was. Altogether felt like the staff were utterly indifferent to our being there. Hospitality is about much more than the food. Much can be forgiven about a place if the customer service is well delivered. The food was mediocre. Expensive for what it was. And that would have been forgiven with good customer service. But that wasn't there either. Newport is a small place- word travels fast. You need to improve customer experience quickly or people simply won't return.
