Great midweek visit to Grilla excellent food good service and value
Started with a bad impression table booked for three pm but had to wait for over half an hour for our order to be taken for both drinks and food and the only reason why are order was taken was because the table by us shouted across to the first easier we had seen in this time to take there drinks order, they too had over half an hour wait. It still took some time for our starter to arrive and the bottle of wine ordered still had not appeared this came ten minutes after the starter. When our starter dishes were cleared away asked if we were ready for our main course said yes but this still took some time to srrive, the waiter apologised and said he had forgotten. Now the good news and why they scored a five the food was amazing the starters were ample, my son had saganaki (fried cheese) my husband garlic bread with cheese and o had the croquet all delicious, the main course my son had the mixed kebabs and we had the mixed grilla which was all four meats served with chips new crushed potatoes and salad the portions were massive far too much to eat but represented good value for money and we were able to take the left over meat home with us. They did provide us with free chocolate brownies and cream for desert i think as a further apology so our overall experience at Grilla was that the service needed improving, our table was booked in advance so there should not being busy was not really an excuse. But as the food was delicious and very good value for money the poor service at this time can be overlooked, however the table by us who also had delays with orders being taken once there main dishes had been served three people had been missed off the order and their meals had not arrived we left as this table was complaining so do not know the outcome. I think we would go back but until the service improved i think we would use the takeaway service instead. Maybe it was a bad day for them i would like to give them the benefit of doubt and perhaps try the restaurant in the future.
Attended on a Friday evening, the restaurant was quite busy when we got there. We were seated upstairs, the tables are quite compact as they have obviously tried to get as many seats in upstairs. Seating was like a garden picnic bench with a thin cushions. Not the most comfortable. Food order was taken quite quick, large selection available. We went for the Mixed for Two. Food arrived quite swiftly after order very generous portions. The meat was delicious and was just falling off the bone. Was served with a large amount of fries and roasties and gravy. Halloumi fries were great and went great with the chilli sauce. After a while, a large group of girls come in and it was very difficult to talk to my girlfriend due to the racket they were making. Definitely thinking about going back and they also offer takeout on the full menu too which is a bonus. Definitely recommend booking a table in advance.
Booked this restaurant somewhat last minute for 5 people and a baby in a pram. Mentioned the pram on the request form and asked that we be seated somewhere suitable. The table was great, out of the way of other customers and with more than enough room at the side for the pram. The restaurant was lovely, it had a really nice atmosphere. The staff were great and the food was amazing. Portions were very generous and are great value for money. As it was my dad’s birthday we asked if they could stick a candle in a dessert for us and bring it out which they did no problem...the chocolate brownie was incredible. I’d definitely recommend this restaurant.
The restaurant set up was lovely, my only gripe was the hard seats on benches with thin cushions as I have a bad back, which hurt to sit on after a little while. The staff were lovely and the food was amazing! I definitely recommend. I've rated a 5 instead of 6 just because my partner and I had never been before and our entrance was confusing. We were greeted initially (I pre booked) then shown to a table upstairs and left alone without menus or being asked if we'd like a drink. I waited for around for a short while and went to the bar for drinks and had to ask for menus. It was all in all still a lovely experience and I would 100% recommend.
Food was excellent and portion size enormous! Maybe explaining the sizing of the mains would be useful to prevent over ordering but prices are so reasonable you don’t mind if you don’t finish. Service excellent and cakes at the end of the meal are a thoughtful touch and taste amazing! Would definitely come again! Only negative is the smell of the kitchen on your clothing when you leave but this is part of the cooking experience in this restaurant and just means it’s authentic!
Lovely fresh food in huge portions. Friendly service and reasonably priced menu. We were a table of 7 and we went on a Tuesday evening - there was a special deal on of 2 courses for £9.80. There was so much food we couldn't finish it so took some home with us! They even gave us a free home made mini lemon cake at the end and a shot. A good time was had by all.
