On this particular occasion I took my mother there for her birthday. We were seated shortly after arriving and waited around 5 minutes before getting the menu. We very quickly decided what we wanted to eat but it took around 10 minutes for us to be served despite it being quiet and also waiving to try get the waiters attention. Once we were served we were then told we couldn't order any starters, sides or deserts and the only things we could order were from the main course menu as they had turned off the cookers. We asked the waiter to ask if the chef could make an exception but come back very quickly and said no. So we placed our order for the main course and as I was unhappy at least because we were not told on arrival that they would only be serving main courses, I asked to speak to the manager. At first the manager was quite abrupt but then after explaining it was my mothers birthday he changed his tone and was very apologetic but could not override what the chef had said and as a result compensated us with a bottle of house champagne. I was still not happy particularly as the manager also appeared to be drunk. I haven't returned since and it may be a very long while before i do again. It's a shame as this use to be the first place I would recommend to anyone but it has gone really down hill!!
Amazing 5 star food which compromises the price. Outstanding table service and very friendly staff. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves, I will definitely be going back.
Great food and attentive service. Great choice of steaks and burgers and very reasonably priced. Lots of outdoor seating by the river - great spot in the summer
Make sure you eat downstairs in the bar as there was no atmosphere upstairs in the restaurant, also the decor nicer downstairs. Food really good and staff very friendly
Disappointed you can no longer eat outside. Half lobster was ok, but not that tasty, maybe from frozen? Chips were good, but sadly this restaurant is quite expensive for what you get. Maybe try a steak next time. Service friendly but slow.
Not planning to go back, meat was far from expected , poor service , swearing in Portuguese by one of the staff... not a good experience altogether
A great place right on the river, wasn't expecting too much but the steak was fantastic, melt in the mouth! Sides were generous, deserts were OK too! all round good evening.
Everything was perfect we have been spending New Year's Eve with them since they opened Food and staff were perfect x Happy new year xxx
Great place god food, but the staff should be more nice, that sad faces is not what I'm looking for a place where I want to spend money and time. And should not do any pressures to make me leave my table
Great steak, although more like well done than medium. Music a bit loud, more like a disco than a quiet meal out. Not like the experience two years ago.
