    Disappointed

    Service was poor, confusion with menus, fridge broken so wine was not readily available chilled. It was placed in the freezer for us to chill and ice cubes provided. Decor seems dated and dirty and there were flies. Not an overall good experience and we will not be back.

    Really liked the food and the deal was great for pushing us to actually go and check it out. Only thing is that we were the only people dining there so that made things a bit awkward but staff were lovely!

    Very Poor Food and Poor Cooking

    the restaurant was cold, I had to put on my jacket and the table beside us were complaining of the cold too. the portions were miniscule. The Moroccoan lamb with spicy couscous was disgraceful, so small and the lamb consisted of 5 lumps of grizzle. To add insult to injury, my friend had a piece of sharp plastic in her panacotta! The staff were very apologetic and helpful.
