If you want an expensive hybrid of McDonald’s and Wetherspoons then this is the place!

I don’t often review places but the service of this place was shocking. Met by a rude member of staff, the food wasn’t much better.

The bun was stale and the burger tasted frozen ( Wetherspoons comes to mind). The Prims cocktail was nice.

The service was the worse part. After receiving no service, when the bill came ( after asking for it multiple times) a 12.5% service charge was added. Both me and my friends agreed that this was not worth it and KINDLY asked for it to be taken off.

I’ve worked in this sector while at uni so I know it can be stressful.

The waitress ( Katie) went to the defensive and said it was mandatory. I corrected her and said it was optional on the menu. She then asked me the reason ( gave her the reason above) and she said that was not a good reason!

She then threatened to get the manager, which I told her that’s fine and came back with the correct amount.

Katie was the worst confrontation rude waitress I have ever experienced!

Server saw us at the entrance, proceeded to ignore us. Seated outside next to a huge plant. Were moved indoors away from all the other customers. Took ages for someone to take our order. Ordered spaghetti bolognese and a pizza which came in less than 10 mins. Spaghetti was awful, pizza was nice. No one asked us if food was okay or if we needed anything. No one came to take our plates until we asked for the bill.

We arrived at 8:15, got to order drinks at 8:25, food ordered at 8:35, starter arrived 9:15, main didn’t arrive until 10!
One starter was Calamari, so over cooked and rubbery it was elastic.
Main food was good, steak and fish, but not good trying to eat a full meal after 10pm. Waitresses apologised for us being kept waiting so long, and gave us a free shot of a lemon liqueur.
Drinks were ok, one drink arrived and was for the wrong table.
Overall bad starter, main food was nice but ruined by poor timing.

First time in Capeesh, we were a group of 6 celebrating my birthday. We were accommodated with an outdoor table and a view on the water - just like I asked in my booking. We arrived at 7.30pm and got our table straight away.

The staff was outstanding, in particular Rita, she made us feel at home and kept us up to date with our order. We did wait ages for our food (at least an hour or more if I recall), but we didn't mind since we were not in a rush. Rita brought us bread, olives and drinks to make our wait easier :) The food was worth the wait, delicious and good portions.

We stayed until just before midnight - the staff let us enjoy the terrasse even as everyone had left! Overall, we had a wonderful night. The only reason I gave 4 stars is the wait for the food (and maybe the price, too).

PS: bring cash to tip the amazing staff!!

We booked a table for 19:15 on Saturday 5th June 2021 and arrive on time was sat on a table right up against the wall with next to the waiting station with a very wobbly table which wasn’t ideal but we understand it was reasonably busy so didn’t say anything.

It started off well as our waitress was polite and funny and she took our drinks order and food order at the same time which was between 19:20-19:25, drinks came out pretty quickly so thought food would follow with the same sort of standard.

At 20:20 I checked with a waitress saying that the table next to us came in 20 mins after us and then didn’t order their food for another 5-10 mins and received their food before ours and we understand different cooking times etc but we ordered a pizza and a burger and it had been an hour since we ordered.

The waitress didn’t come back after checking with the kitchen how long it would be and I had to grab them again to chase what was happening, and I was told the kitchen wouldn’t say a time it was ready when it was ready, which I found was rude (the kitchen not the waitresses they were polite) the food come out finally after an hour and 10-15 minutes.

The food was mediocre, the burger was no different to cooking one at home and the pizza made me very ill afterwards. We would not recommended was definitely not worth the wait. We were going to get dessert but after all the trouble we decided against it and asked for the bill and we had to ask a couple of times.

The waitresses were very apologetic and polite and I understand there’s not much they can do as it is not up to them but the service was pretty terrible and food wasn’t great and the only compensation we were offered was a shot each but not discount off the bill which was disgusting considering there was a service charge added to the bill.

Due to the wait, the quality of food and service, making us late and making me ill we missed out on plans after dinner and our evening was ruined.

This is a really nice restaurant in a great location. The staff were very friendly and attentive. Most of all, the food was really good. First glance at the menu felt like all of those bland Italian chains, but this was so much better. We really enjoyed it. Pretty good value for money too.

Food was okay. I feel like Tik Tok overhyped it because the food was just average. Service was okay, could’ve been a bit more attentive and I feel like the price wasn’t worth what it was. I feel like I could’ve had a better meal at Zizzi’s for cheaper too.

The restaurant was very busy in spite of Covid regulations there was no social distancing measures neither the waiters were observing these regulations.
The food took a lot longer and not enough choice for vegetarians.

Nice atmosphere and decent food (I thought the seafood spaghetti was above average and had a lot of seafood in it). The service is slow, but that suited us as we didn't want to rush, and the servers were very friendly. It's a nice location and very good atmosphere. Decent cocktails too. I would definitely go back.

We had a quick lunch meeting for business on bank holiday. It was sunny day and we have sit outside had pasta and pizza. The ambience was quite good because of the sun and outside seating in the summer weather and the service was good, food was also quite good, so overall, had a good time.

I had to wait over 30 minutes just to get a waiters attention to pack away my things. With the wind blowing causing all sorts of things to fly in my food. I was only asked once if I was okay just after I received my food. I asked for sauces which never came. The food wasn’t that great with. £15 for a small bowl of spaghetti and meatballs. I have been to much nicer places I would not at all recommend. I had a very bad experience.

Pasta phenomenal, fish ok. Really reasonable. We sat inside but there is outdoor seating. Arrived around 3pm, no sun - all outdoor seating was in the shade. Bang on the river so great views. Maybe the sun moves round early evening?? Shame if it didn't

Requires a big step up in service and attitude at the guest needs to be changed. Particularly senior members of the team.
Food pretty good. Just salmon was way overcooked and dry, spinach tasteless. Other main meals starters were nice Wine description doesn't match the actual wine. We took second of the most expensive bottle of white wine on the menu, were wine supposed to have rich finish however wine itself was watery and far from it. Asked to change it. Come into argumet with senior member of staff that we have no right to do so! But at the end he did agree to change it and we took the most expensive one. We wasn't in the position to avoid any item/bill to pay, or look for any other benefits. Just wanted to have a good time, at the end to stop arguing about the wine not him but i had to apologise just to stop that mess.
Still paid bill in full. Service charge and left sime tips. They do work hard for us and we appreciate it.
However never will come back there and will not recommend to anyone.
