    amazing food, service struggled, exceptional loud music to the point the service staff had to point to menu items as they couldn’t hear the orders. This was not only out table but a few around us facing the same challenge.

    The food was amazing - very impressed! Service however could have been improved. Staff were lovely, but were way too busy to give us proper attention. Needed more servers to cater for the mass of patrons.

    We were seated indoors so was a little bit stuffy. We knew this as we were told there would be a wedding on the balcony. We have been before and definitely a balcony table is much better than being inside.

    We were greeted warmly and shown to our table and given menus. We ordered drinks with our young waiter and browsed the menu. We were given glasses but no water, our cocktails came and our waiter drop them and left to have a chat to his work collegue by the till about 2metres from our table. He had no interest in taking our food order and when we finally ordered he didn't know the menu! Poor service but food was nice. Not worth the money in my opinion.

    Atmosphere and service was good but food quality was very average to poor. Only one of us finished our dish. The linguini has way to much cream and the burger was very pink (it was advertised as a little pink and was badly shaped almost like a squashed ball making it really awkward to eat. I was also really looking forward to the duck fat chips but they were hard to distinguish from normal chips in flavour. Overall food quality significantly down on a year ago when I last visited.

    The meals were to expensive to be sold without sides.

    This is a popular restaurant for a reason - food is lovely, staff are friendly and the restaurant is beautifully decorated. But it was too loud on the Saturday night we visited. We were seated below a very loud speaker on the balcony and there was a busker playing on the street immediately below that. Between that and the general hub of people, it was overwhelming. We couldn't hear each other and so were basically in and out. A shame because we'd been looking forward to it. Would happily recommend otherwise.

    Excellent selection of well thought out meals - the duck fat chips were not up to their usual standard and way too many jammed onto plates
