- Plato on the Sicilian people, 5th century BC

Our experience at Bar Idda is always wonderful. Every time we go we are welcomed with a warm smile, friendly service and with ahhhmazing food. The set menu selection was well balanced and portion sizes were fantastic. The atmosphere is homely and has a positive buzz to reflect the mood. Overall, a memorable visit once again!

We felt like we were rushed through our dining experience. We had ordered the chefs selection and it all came so fast without any pausing in between. Our plates were being cleared with food still on them while we were still attempting to finish. We had a two hour booking so there should have been time between courses (we were finished in an hour and half). This was a special occasion dinner that felt extremely rushed. We have been before and not experienced this so I’m hoping it was just a bad night.

It was one of the best dining experiences I've had. We were lucky enough to be hosted by the owner. He was passionate, knowledgeable, friendly and just bloody awesome. Cheers
