What a cute little tucked away John Dory's. Staff is excellent and very caring....loved the table in the corner with a bit of sun. Please get your liquor license so that we can return for a glass of wine.

We had dinner here and were not disappointed in the least. From the moment we walked in the service was very good. Our waitress was friendly and had good knowledge of the menu.

Starters through desert was lip smacking good and the prices were standard i.e. not more expensive than other restaurants. The play area for the kids was well kept as well.

Nothing great, nothing bad... just an average meal. Hectic renovations in the centre which is killing business - as it is difficult to locate restaurants in the maze of builders.
