First night here looking for a nice place to eat. As a Veggie it can be quite difficult at times. Stopped here as place looked nice and lots on the menu.
Male waiter came to us straightaway to take order. Ordered a jug of Sangria which was ok.

My friend ordered garlic mushrooms and I ordered loaded nacho’s with sour cream, guacamole and fresh chopped tomatoes. When they arrived ( male waiter was miserable) the garlic mushrooms were on a plate with a piece of bread. Mushrooms tasteless and sloppy and poss frozen. Where do I start with the nacho’s!! . Nacho’s arrived covered with bbq sauce! Also sour cream and guacamole was artificial and out of a sauce bottle!! Totally inedible... have they not heard of fresh even if not prepared by them there is a supermarket 5 mins up the road!
Move onto the next course

Friend ordered Pork in mushroom sauce and I excitedly looked forward to a Greek salad! Mmmm

Pork arrived with a baked potato in foil... skin was soggy and inside the potato flesh was slimy and tasted funny ( and not the haha funny!) possibly frozen then reheated. Pork tasted as though cooked in a microwave and mushroom sauce again no taste, the carrots saved the day although cooked within an inch of their lives!

Moving onto my lovely fresh Greek salad!! How can that go wrong I hear you ask!! Massive bowl of salad arrived... smothered in Thousand island dressing!!
After trying to move the top layer in search of fresh crispy lettuce ( that was nice) I found the processed tiny cubes of what I presume were Feta!! Mmm not sure on that one. My bowl was then full of those nasty Olives .

When dishes collected by a very pleasant young girl sh retuned to ask if a problem. Told it was smothered in thousand island sauce so couldn’t eat it. They gave us a shot each of fairy liquid... oops lemon liquor. Miserable waiter reappeared with a beaming smile when we asked for the bill. He soon looked very disappointed when there was no tip... so much so he checked it twice!

Avoid at all costs unless you like all food frozen and not freshly prepared! Nothing appeared to be fresh... still cuts down on needing a chef.

This was a favourite with us all. Good food nice staff and a free shot of lemoncello with the bill. Teens in the family were especially happy with choices. Maybe a little more expensive than other establishments in the area but overall worth it.

Why when you have a chef, ingredients and branding yourself as Italian Mexican would you put out ravioli pasta that is dense and a filling that is possibly processed salmon? Watched plates returing to the kitchen with food uneaten. Mabye its the big portions! Lovely waiting staff, toilets exellent pity about the "tired food"

Had higher expectatios because of recent reviews. Didn't quite get there. Very nice and active service, food was ok but nothing wow. We had pizza, tortellini and gluten free chicken.

The pasta and pizza dishes in this restaurant are superior to any I have sampled at home in Britain. The service is friendly and efficient and the atmosphere is casual and relaxed.Definitely recommended.
