Fish dish was under seasoned and the roast was over seasoned with way to much salt

Really disappointing Sunday dinner, veg was all like baby food purée and the beef was massively over cooked and tough terrible for £25 a head! Shame as the place has lovely potential but you can’t serve food like that. Service was good but they did very little to resolve the food issue and expected full bill to be paid despite 3 of the party hardly eating. Won’t be returning

The location, staff and the food were outstanding. Would recommend it to everyone and give it a 10 out of 10!!!!!
We often dine at Delia’s restaurant in Norwich and the food was on a pare and a fraction of the price.

We went at 1pm on a Saturday. Quite quiet when we arrived but got busier as the afternoon wore on. Apart from me and my friend, for most of the afternoon all the other customers were women, though some blokes did turn up later on. Bit weird though. Service and food were great. Nice place. Nice sense of quality: the building, the tables and chairs, the cutlery, the glasses. Nice ambience too.

The food was delicious… I had monkfish scamp to start and we both had ribeye steak for main. Chips come included with the steak but the only criticism was there were just too many.. one portion would have been more than enough so just sad about wastage.

Food extremely good, particularly the steak for which we asked for the chef to come out and be congratulated. Great atmosphere, lots of happy people and just generally great surroundings. Staff were very friendly, but maybe they could invest in another couple of them to enable you to feel a little bit more 'attended' to. The staff were stretched, but did a great job even so. We will be going back.

Saturday lunch turns it seems into a ‘ladies that lunch’ due to the tipsy tapas. Good value for £30. 3 tapas and free top ups of Prosecco, beer or wine. Some dishes were fantastic such as mushrooms, chicken, chorizo. Potato Brattas has too much topping, leaving the end bites sloppy so scrape a bit off and the Greek salad very disappointing so avoid that one. They don’t leave you short on drinks if having Prosecco as a bottle is brought but if drinking other items service can be slow when the restaurant is full. The guy in charge is really cheerful and welcoming, very helpful and rectifies and fixes delays or errors very quickly. Definitely recommend it, just pick your dishes carefully. I’d suggest they being plates so you can share dishes, they currently don’t.

We we’re pleasantly surprised upon arrival. It was raining and we’d chosen outdoor seating. Not a problem at all the outdoor dining area is beautiful with a roof and sides and heaters, it’s absolutely stunning. As a group of 5 we chose to have the tapas and we were not disappointed. The Patatas bravas were the best I’ve ever tasted and all our dishes were tasty and a good portion. Service was excellent and was a lovely atmosphere to dine in.

The waiting staff were very helpful, friendly and knowledgeable about the dishes. Very pleasant Young chap. The food was very delicious. With the portion size being what it is, the bowls of chips should be twice the size for the price. Otherwise all was very nice.

After booking and indicating two of our guests were gluten free we arrived to find that the menu was a little different and the only gf on the menu were olives. We also had a guest with a seafood allergy and found a lot in the menu was seafood. It was a red hot day ( which we appreciate cannot be expected) but we were uncomfortably warm under the outdoor seating area and requested a seat in the open air. This was frowned upon and we were told we could not eat outside. The waitress explained that the chef was ill today so they would do what they could. After being slightly frosty to begin with she became helpful and ended up asking the chef to cook us some gf tapas. We did however have to go back under cover to eat and then back outside to drink. After visiting a few times before and really enjoying it, this experience has put me off a little.
