    We truly enjoyed our Thursday dinner at this very presentable restaurant! They accepted us as a walk in even though the restaurant was at a 70% capacity (on a Thursday night haha). At the table there was italian olives and marinated oil with bread sticks, all were delicious. For starters we had the sea food salad (very good portion for the price and all sea food options were delicious) and the soup of the day which was vegetable soup (fantastic flavor) which came with a couple of mini loaf breads. For mains we had the sea bass (it was literally melting in your mouth) and the halibut fish steak which oh my god was the best fish i've ever had. nice lemony-buttery flavor with delicious asparagus on the side and loads of sauce to dip your bread or chips in. Luscious! For dessert we had a tiramisu (very good and loved the glass as a presentation) and a cheesecake (not strawberry cheesecake, baked cheesecake!) Friendly staff without being annoying like other posh restaurants that waiters are creeping behind you. One more thing that we really appreciated about this restaurant is that tips were not included, not because we are cheap but, we always preffer to leave as a tip whatever amount of money we want rather than other restaurants that force you a 10-20% which is absurd.

    Nice setting, will decorated place. Service is very good. And the place was recently featured in a list of great restaurants in Yorkshire. Unfortunately the food didn't stack up. The calamari I had was obviously from a frozen pack, it certainly wasn't freshly made on-site. I also ordered halibut, a nice chunk of it was served on asparagus, but the sauce was way over seasoned and spoilt the dish. I've been to the restaurant a few times, and the consistency of the meals seems to vary. Sometimes it's flawless, others not so good. Unfortunately my last visit was a not so good. Give it a try, if you drop on a great night you will not be disappointed, on a not so good night the food will be mediocre. It is a rather pricey place. £50 a head on average for starter, main and a drink.

    We recently visited here with our 2 grandchildren, although busy it was not full. The food was hot and tasty no problem there, the problem is how long you have to wait to get served and then again for the food to arrive. This was well over 2 hours for a starter and main, and not once were we asked if everything was OK or would we like this or that, but when it came to the drinks that was a different matter, plenty of service there, trying to get you to have more drinks. They just need to improve on quality of service, customer service and manners, all of which don't cost anything but make for a good dining experience: which this unfortunately was not!
