Lovely little place

First time we've stayed in Coral Bay and went here one night when it was late, food was lovely, quick to come and hot. Plenty for me. Well presented. The staff were lovely, so much so we went back a 2nd time and stayed there most of the evening chatting and drinking. No complaints from us, there were quite a few other eateries there that were empty or closed and this was busy on both evenings, will go back again on next holiday.

Decent food, decent value.

Despite users comments below, we had 2 enjoyable nights out here, I had their special steak-very nice, pork medallions-also fine. Kids had no complaints about their meals either.

I would eat here again with no hesitation.

Better restaurants both in Coral Bay & Surrounding

One of the few restaurants I would definatley not recommend visiting. The service is very good, however that where it ends. The prices & quality of food isn't that good. Even portion sizes aren't anything to write home about. This restaurant is in a prime position on the main junction in Coral Bay Strip. It's a shame it relies totally on this position/location and you can only get away with serving poor/average over priced food for so long before it bites you. Much better establishments within spitting distance. Not a patch on the 'Elephant' (this isn't a play on animal words by the way - there really is a fab restaurant called the 'Sea Elephant 100 yards away! - see my review). The kids did like the banana split mind (if I remember correctly (always like to finish on a positive).

Should have known better

Ate here two years ago and was not impressed. Should have known better than to have tried again. Nothing has changed. Food was poor and service was awful. No atmosphere.Overpriced. Will definately not return

Not great

To be honest this place isn't great. Eaten here once, and will never return. Standard of food is not good, and appears to be mass produced rather than individually created. Some of the staff are constantly in your face checking up on how things are - I think they know how bad it is! Andria, across the road, is a far better.
