Good food, classy setting, large portions in a nice central location in the rocks. All of us really enjoyed the meal, shared a couple of starters between four of us and all left stuffed and happy after some delicious pasta. The service was excellent, too.

We phoned late to book and were told there were only outside tables left. Turned out to be best seats in the house, overlooking Chartwell Avenue with all the buzz and none of the chaos. Food was spectacular! Try the bacon and gorgonzola chicken breast on spring onion mash or, if you like a touch of spice, the Morrocan Chicken pasta.

This Mediterranean restaurant situated in the middle of Chartwell Drive has a family oriented, romantic yet sophisticated feel.

The service is commendable, however the food was disappointingly average. What sounded like gems on the menu turned out to be bland fests.

My dish (forgot the name) was too salty and lacked a kick of some sort. The same could be said about the other dishes on the table.

Thank FatDash
