Fantastic food, friendly atmosphere, and great service. Such a vibrant place to eat. I’ve been several times but my partners first time. She loved it. Thank you to everyone there for a lovely evening.
Always good food and lively atmosphere. Probably the best place to eat on Poole Quay, summer and winter. Is always busy even in mid winter, which shows how popular it is .
Good location. This is a family run restaurant which serves great food and has a wonderful atmosphere. Huge portions! Very good service. I highly recommend.
