Latest review:

I struggled to decide between 3 and 4 stars for this review and here’s why. Good points: - Lovely ambiance and lively atmosphere for a Friday night. - Excellent team who were very exceptionally friendly, helpful and patient with us, particularly as we initially took ages to get ready to order. - the cocktails are very interesting in the bar upstairs. - the grilled octopus starter was one of the best I’ve had - meaty, tasty and cooked to perfection. Sadly though, the main course really let the whole experience down for me. Sirloin steak, the quality of the meat didn’t feel on par with steaks I’ve had in other places. While it looked amazing, the texture on the inside, though clearly cooked rare,was very rubbery, not tender at all, chewy and not very pleasant to eat. I have to acknowledge that they are not a specialist steak restaurant so next time I will try something else from the menu. The chips, for me, tasted like they had been reheated, and not in a nice ‘triple cooked’ way. More like chips I would have had in my school canteen. We also waited a very long time for both the starter and the main but during this period the waiting staff remained attentive and continued to top up our drinks. Really disappointed to have to write this as the rest of the experience was on point or better, and because of that I will give these guys another go (it was a busy night and sometimes you just get one bad experience).
