    No aircon and ran out of the beer and main my husband wanted to order. We had a 7.30 reservation and not a full house so don’t know how they ran short. Nice location.

    We visited for NYE dinner. While the setting is beautiful and the owners and staff were fantastic, we were disappointed with the portion size of the pasta and creme brûlée for the prices.

    The restaurant was beautiful and the food was amazing! Only reason why I have given 4* for service is that there was a mix up in the kitchen and we waited almost an hour for our mains. The waiter was super kind about it though and brought us a free side, these things happen. They also accommodated my request for a special table since I had a visitor in town which was nice. Would definitely recommend! My guest was super impressed too

    Second visit to 1908 - great service and we loved the food. To me, the portions were just the right size allowing to experience the appetiser up to desert. Full marks to the waitresses who looked after us, good sense of humour and they helped make the experience very enjoyable

    The service was quite poor. Took 90 minutes for our main to arrive. Had to ask a few times about our order. Under staffed on the floor and in the kitchen. The manager was very apologetic and didn’t charge us for our dessert.

    I love coming to this restaurant. The food is always superb and really interesting. The octopus is one of my favourites. The staff are always really friendly and it is a really and pretty spacious. The menu is changed seasonally so there is always something new and tasty to try. :)

    The service here is always excellent and the food was amazing. I love the atmosphere of the restaurant and cocktails are worth trying.. It is more on the pricey side but if you are looking for something special, look no further.

    Average food for the price. Cute location and settings though. Waiters too pushy and made the experience uncomfortable.

    Fantastic food and service. Expensive drinks, unfortunately it is a non BYO restaurant. The big problem was noise. There had been a group of people (around 30) celebrating from early afternoon in the bar area of the restaurant. There is really nothing to separate this area from the dining area and consequently the noise made me feel like we were at a pub rather than a fine dining restaurant . We were told they would be gone by 7, the group were mostly still there and uncomfortably loud when we left at 8.15. It was a struggle to talk and became rather tiring. I would gladly dine here again but enquire if they were allowing any groups in before booking.

    We loved eating at 1908. The service was excellent and friendly. Just the right amount of time between courses and the food was excellent. Not the biggest serves but thought this was great as we were able to have the full course. Will definitely go back
