Came here for the first time with my partner, we were extremely happy with our experience which was made even better with the wonderful service, we were seen to by a few members of the front of house team and they were all very polite and attentive. Our food was delicious, risotto and ravioli couldn’t be faulted and the baklava was incredible! I’ve had baklava many times and this was by far the best, worth coming back just for that! Wonderful beer choices served in lovely chilled glasses, it’s these small touches that make a big difference. The only very small negative was that we were sat under the air conditioning and it was a bit chilly, I had to keep my jacket on, however I imagine if it wasn’t too busy and I asked to move they would have happily obliged. Overall we loved it and would absolutely recommend it to anyone! Thank you!

We all had a great night but 2 of the party are vegetarians and the choice for prix fixe was very limited for vegetarians so had to pay more than the ones having steak! However the service was very friendly and we think pre-ordering was a great idea.

Pros - we got the table we requested and waiter was very polite Cons - a lot of menu unavailable at 6.30pm on a Saturday night. So disappointing. We had come especially with friends visiting chester and felt really embarrassed that the place had gone down so much since our last visit. We had to ask 4 times for table water only to be god the reason it took so long was there was not enough glasses. Come on management this is just unprofessional and we won’t be returning any time soon.

I booked by telephone with some fairly specific requirements and these were dealt with faultlessly. When we arrived we were given a lovely welcome and were seated immediately. Our orders were taken and our drinks arrived straight away. The starters arrived and were delicious - albeit that the lemon mayonnaise with the cod fritters was almost devoid of lemon flavour! The main course was a bit disappointing - we had the belly pork and apple kebabs. The plates were overflowing, which I find a bit off putting, the belly pork was lovely but the apple was warm and raw. This would be much better if it were cooked and soft therefore making a lovely apple sauce for the pork. Dessert was good. All in all we had a lovely meal with good service and just minor points let it down.

I was really looking forward to coming here for mothers day as I have been once before and the food was lovely. This time however, the starters were cold (after taking 45 minutes to come) the mains were awful and had things missing from the dishes that were listed on the menu, and the deserts again had the wrong items compared to what was listed on the menu and also had baking paper stuck inside the brownies. Bad experience. Staff were nice but didn't really make up for the awful meal - we all went and ate wok & go afterwards, nightmare!

The staff were tentative, however we were placed in s corner upstairs with no lighting resulting to use a light on our mobile phone so we could see our food?! The waitress was very apologetic, however I expected some for of reimbursement / acknowledgment from the manager. My daughter asked for J20 which you don’t stock, but kindly offered to mix up a juice drink for her, I was appalled to see I was then charged £4.00 for a small juice drink! An alcoholic drink is cheaper! Our main meal was lovely - but not being able to see it ruined our experience with you.
