Waiters were a little confused regarding menu. Meal was excellent although ribs were slightly over done. All in all 9/10

We enjoyed a lovely meal last night celebrating my partner’s birthday. We did arrive approximately 10-15mins early for our booking so that may have been why our table was still un-wiped and not reset. It did take a while for our drink orders to be taken and as we were only given drink menus, we couldn’t use that wait to decide on what we wanted for mains. Other than those small two things, we absolutely enjoyed our meal and evening.

This was our first time dining at Little Savanna, we had a lovely evening. The food, service and atmosphere was great. The waiter even asked if we were celebrating anything when he came and introduced himself. It was actually my partners birthday. When dessert came out it had a candle and sprinkles this was a lovely touch and a great end to our evening out.

The entree was very disappointing. We ordered the prawns, which were more burnt than chargrilled. The main was snapper, with asparagus and new potatoes. There was half a stalk of asparagus. We won’t be back.

Really sad to read this review as we pride ourselves in our service and we aim for consistency at all times. A real shame you didn't highlight your disappointment to your server or the Maitre D on the night as this would have given us the opportunity to put things right.
