My son's choice for his birthday meal and it was a great choice. Really tasty meat dishes. We had the mixed grill which was enormous, the lamb/aubergine dish and the lamb chops after some excellent hot starters. The service was extremely friendly and attentive without being in any way over the top, with fresh water jugs topped up without being asked, for example. It tastes as good as it smells!

Reserved and showed up on time only to be told that we did not have a table. Seemed they were mismanaging the opentable system. No effort was made to accommodate us and we were asked to leave

The restaurant was closed during their set opening hours with no notification on their website or at the front door. My friend and I were left disappointed

Lovely ambience, if fairly tightly packed. Importantly though, lovely food. It was a mystery why there was no dessert available at 10pm on a Saturday, however.

Love this restaurant. Great food and lots of it! The service is quick with the food being cooked on a bbq in the restaurant and the cooking smells are divine. We have been here a few times and will definitely return.

Everything is fine except that embarrassingly large quantities of food are provided, certainly for older clients.

Went here on a friend's recommendation with my girlfriend - the food was excellent (cooked in front of you on a large BBQ in the restaurant...which is a nice experience, and the smells of the food cooking are amazing) . Good service, and a varied menu with something that will suit everyone, decent house wine, and all at a very reasonable price.
Will definitely be back here again.

I booked this restaurant 4 days before going for my fathers birthday, as I had previously been there before with my wife and had really enjoyed the food.

When we arrived the restaurant appeared packed with a big table and several other diners. As it was very cold outside the table by the door still had their jackets on, despite a fan heater, and were keen to get the door closed behind us due to a draught. The waiters appeared surprised to see us, however after checking our reservation asked us to wait 5 minutes to sort out a table.

When we returned to the restaurant the customers by the door had been moved further into the restaurant away from the door. The waiters tried initially to seat us on a small 1x1m 2 person table against a wall between the kitchen and the toilets. When I pointed out this was too small for the 3 of us they offered to move a table next to the front door to where the other group of people had been. At this point we decided to leave and go to an alternate restaurant as we were frustrated that despite booking well in advance the staff had not planned the seating and that we now appeared to be an inconvenience.

The food was nice and very reaonable price. Servie was friendly. However it was a cold night and the restaurant quickly lost its heat everytime a new customer came in.
