Were were out looking for somewhere to eat with a bit ambience. The duo playing to the outside tables of this and the next door restaurant were excellent so we elected t take an outside table a the Scat Club. The food was pretty good although nothing to set it apart from many others, however it was the music that... More

This restaurant was certainly full of style with an extensive and reasonably priced menu. My wife had the sardine fillets which she says were some of the best she has tasted and my fish stew was as good as any I have had before. The service was not only efficient but also extremely friendly.

My wife and I had a wonderful evening here. We both had the taster menu and the food was absolutely first class - a starter of 5 small entrees, a fish course, a meat course, a sorbet and a desert followed by coffee! Included in the menu was wine of our choice. The staff from the maitre d' to the... More

Cataplana We tried this restaurant because it promised live music, one of the few that had such an offering midweek. At 8.00 pm there were only 4 tables taken, so the atmosphere was a bit downbeat. Nevertheless we were greeted and made welcome by smartly attired staff. We opted for pate as a starter. There were three different 'home made'... More

We had dinner here one night having heard the music on previous evenings when passing. The food was ok rather than good but we had better meals elsewhere. I had Limpets to start , (a new experience - they were like snails), followed by steak which was tough on side which was disappointing although my wife thoroughly enjoyed her fish... More

I'll start with the good things: the service was great, if a bit stiff, the wine was good and the traditional bread was fantastic. That's unfortunately the best i can say. I ordered the seafood cataplana my mum the ravioli and my sister a chicken and shrimp pasta. While the presentation was in all cases lovely mine tasted a bit... More

Over the years we've often thought about eating here and finally got round to it - twice in one week. First the food - very good. My wife had some dietary questions which were easily resolved and accommodated. On our first visit we both had duck, this was cooked perfectly. For the second visit my wife had salmon and I... More

We have eaten here before but this time the service was not good and the food was barely adequate for the price.
