Thanks for the nice review! "Tartare" refers to the raw ground meat used in the dish, not "tartar" sauce which is a mayonnaise based sauce.

We found The Grove great value for money and the food was very good, the waitress was very friendly and helpful. The guacamole was the best I have ever had, served in the biggest green chilli I have ever seen Would certainly recommend it

Yes. I was there as part of a large group. We weren't completely separated from other patrons, so it probably wouldn't be a good place to hold a meeting at which people need to listen to speakers, but we were all together... More
