This meal planned for over a month for my birthday with family and friends. I had heard very good things about this restaurant and the food being excellent. However the service was ridiculous. We had waited over an hour for our main with no apology and the restaurant was not even busy. Needless to say I was incredibly disappointed with the level of service when I had quite high expectations. Aside from the poor service and delivery, I couldn’t fault the food, but am very disappointed with my experience here.

We had a fantastic lunch. The food was delicious and portion-size just right. Although our appetiser arrived a little late to eat because the main had just been served, the service overall was very friendly and attentive. Would definitely recommend.

Slow service, under cooked scallops, over cooked crispy fries and chips, cold chocolate brownie when it states warm on the menu. Wouldn’t recommend to anyone.

Very disappointed,with the service,food timing,,missing meals.No kids meal after waiting over an hour .Ordered risotto waited 30 mins then to be told it was not on. Been here previously although slow always had good client service and food,preferred it to Ricks. Gutted really for my friends and their children we brought along. Spent over £350.00 without a tip sorry but won't be returning. Frustrated typing this really as I know nothing will be done about it.

Where do i start... Firstly arrive to be seated and drink ordered. I ask for a rhubard gin, and when i drink it im surprised it isnt and it was fowl. Took it to the bar as no one was coming to us. She said oh we dont have any of what you wanted left so made you something else. Thats like someone ordering a beer and you giving them a coke instead. Just ask first. Secondly, starters come and they were lovely. We then are swarmed with a group of 10+ LOUD scots, who needed to yell, ching glasses, clap and generally be obnoxious. We asked to move althought the romantic atmosphere has been well and truely absorbed up by them. Hour and half later, im still waiting for my main, when i reach the where my ears hurt and im getting pretty fed up. Get our mains, after that long you think you would eat anything. Our tuna was rare, not to our taste but thinking about it, we didnt even order it rare or get asked. So again waiting for longer. It was noticable there was a lack of staff. By this point we ate our mains and asked for the bill. Usually we would of stayed and had dessert but we wanted to leave before our ears bled. Such a lovely meal to celebrate our 1st wedding anniversary, ruined. I wont be back.

Ignored at door for several minutes; greeting by front of house lady was unfriendly; guys at the table much better but forgot one starter; food a real mixed bag - tuna carpaccio special was dreadful - tasteless ball of tired raw tuna; mussels were great; seafood linguine special was heavy with an odd taste; risotto with the salmon special was tired and coagulated. Standards not nearly high enough for prices charged

very good service considering how busy you were. Food was only average considering how much we paid. We have been many times and this was the worst value for money we have had. Would i come again, i am really unsure.

We asked to have our table early, but was told that the kitchen was too busy even though restaurant only half full, so we had to wait and order some drinks and bread. I had the impression they were understaffed. Food was however good and my waiter was very friendly.

This was the best experience I’ve had in Westbeach. We had nearly stopped going as the service and attitude of staff had been awful. I was delighted with I think new staff, so friendly,welcoming and accommodating. food was delicious and no waiting. I hope that this is a permanent change as was so delighted with the entire experience.
