I booked this as treat for our 5 children after going to see santa , the restaurant was half empty when we arrived early, we placed our order and the waiter came back to say pizza was gone, all of us except one had ordered pizza , this was at 7pm in the evening. I found this strange as half the menu is pizza, the restaurant wasn't very busy and it was still early in the evening. There wasnt a lot of choice for the children so they had nuggets and chips. 1hr 15 mins later we were still waiting for the kids meals after asking 3 times , at this stage they were starving, wanted to leave and go to mc donalds! The 2 adult meals then arrived before the childrens, one of which was the wrong side order and the other was cold, the kids meals eventually arrived after speaking with the manager. Again cold food, they left the majority of food behind. The manager voided the kids meals and said it was because they were training chefs but we werent looking for free food, it was supposed to be a fun evening out for the kids. it was just a disaster from the start. The line of the night seemed to be' sorry about that', this wasnt just at our table. My older daughter then saw the chef eating from the chips he was cooking while working. We left , went round the corner, got pizza slices from fast als. Will not go back or recommend, its a pity because it used to be a nice place.

We were waiting approximately 20-25 minutes for our food. I got the mushroom burger which was lovely but there wasn't enough of the sauce on the burger. Staff were friendly but seemed to be under pressure & the restaurant was at half capacity.

We arrived and were seated very fast and they were checking covid passes. We gave our order and waited. After 20 minutes a portion of chicken wings came to our table, my daughter had ordered them for her main but they arrived as a starter and because of that none of the rest of our food had been put on. After 50 minutes waiting we finally got our food. My son had ordered a pepperoni pizza but got just cheese, I ordered a philly steak which was very poor and missing bits. My daughters wings had been kept and reheated, they were hard and dry. We ordered dessert only to be told that what we wanted wasn’t available. We left at that point. I was charged for a full kids meal even though the desert was unavailable and the pizza was incorrect and although they did apologise a few times I felt they didnt seem to give a crap. The food quality has really dropped since I ate there prior to covid.

Everything went well and drinks were beautiful made. I enjoyed the food but my partners pizza was severely under cooked underneath with raw dough but the top was slightly burned. Meaning the oven was too hot and cooked too quick otherwise it would’ve been a 5 star.

Ordered ribs, came poor taste , not warm temperature, horrible fries.
The waitresses looked tired nd stressed.
Bathroom hasn't alcohol gel or product to clean the toilet seat.
Too expensive for poor dish x careless service.

Really great staff, even offering to turn down the music as we were one of the only tables at the time. Checked Covid Certs which is always a bonus. Food was delicious, very fast service.

Very disappointing visit. I haven’t been in a few years. The salad with the enchilada was plain with no dressing and the lettuce was pink. A single enchilada for 15 euro seemed overpriced! The dessert was so disappointing! 8 euro for soft serve ice cream with caramel sauce (which was melted when it arrived). In my memory the sundae used to have warm brownie bits and it was amazing! I would have been better of getting the 1euro sundae from McDonald’s! 70 euro down the drain! Won’t be back again unfortunately! On the plus side the nachos were great! Seems like a good spot for some beers and a sharing platter!

Food was cold and took 45 minutes to arrive, starter was lovely but the mains were awful, cold and burnt and when we told the staff we were asked if we wanted the food heated..

Very slow service tonight, didn't seem to be very busy just not enough staff, food is usually nice but the Philly cheese steak is a let down.

Nachos are delish though and highly recommended.

While the ambiance was great the service was sub par. The person serving us didn't really know what was in the menu and even tho it was quiet and there wasn't many tables taken the staff were very slow at coming around to our table. The staff however were very nice when speaking with us.

Food was really good and staff are lovely ☺️ Was cold inside but imagine that's due to having to keep the place healthily ventilated at the moment, had a good night!

I come here a lot, really enjoy the food but last night we had a booking for 9:15 as my boyfriend finished work late, anyways we got there got seated order was taking food came out at 9:45 and then we realized they close at 10 we asked for desserts menu and was told kitchen was closed, all very understandable but just thought communication could Of been a bit clearer didn’t realized that 10 was closing time as on the app there was times such as 11:30, service was bit slow also considering there wasn’t much people in the restaurant

The restaurant was extremely quiet considering it was a Saturday night. There was no atmosphere. It was always very cold in there no heating so we were uncomfortable. The waitress was new and was quite rude. The food was beautiful but the other factors would put me off returning again.
