The restaurant has the right idea and have set the right conditions for a perfect family restaurant where children can play. My problem is the noise from the bar area where it seems like a karaoke woman playing it was really unpleasant the music was...too loud it was like I was at a typical club trying to be a restaurant. Then there was the lake of condiments and appetiser on the table so I can eat while waiting for my food that took forever and not all the items on the menu are available so we had to change our meals 3 times. Last is the menus they provided are very disappointing low quality and very difficult to read. I must say that the family vibe they where going for is there and welcoming so if u can over look all that then this is the place for you.More

I brought my gran, mom and kids here for my grans birthday as it's close to her and accommodates children. We have come here many times in the past and it never disappoints. The manager was around on a very busy Sunday helping us with...all our little annoying requests and I was just so impressed with how well run it still is. It is family-owned and deserves our business. Thank you Malagueta. Your staff, food and atmosphere are without fault.More

I come with big expectations and left almost angry. Waitress totally unprofessional just for begining he actually throw menu on the table. Waiting time for food very long but only three tables was occupied. One of the meal was simple Neapolitana Pasta even child can...make it but not this chef. It was more like soup with overcooked pasta - terrible For price they should be shame even put that imitation of meal on table Hello or Good bye I think was scrap from their dictionary. Even the worst enemy I will not send there. Wake up guys!!!More

Average restaurant with above average prices. The toilet facilities are an exercise in overthinking something. If it aint broke don't fix it. Why create a passage with multiple doors leading into small toilet rooms. Having to walk up and down the passage knocking on each...door to see if it was available or not. By the time I got to the end of the passage, someone leaves the first door at the bottom of the passage & the you make your way back down , just as someone else ducks into the toilet. What a mistake. If you a bursting for the toilet I recommend booking a toilet room in advance....More

An amazing place to meet up with your girlfriends for some much needed catch up and girl talk. An incredible place to spend with your family and kids.

We attended a birthday party at the restaurant, this restaurant has a awesome kids area, you can sit on the patio and the kids are always in sight. The food was good and the service was excellent. We will definitely return.

It was an unpleasant experience. I could not tell what was worst, service or the food. As a cherry on top of the cake waiter disappeared with the change obviously wanted to tip himself. Menageress was pretty emaberassed since they had problem finding him, as...he disappeared in a thin air. Would not go there again.More

I ordered a rib eye steak medium. It came very rare. After sending it back, It was about an inch thick wit 2 mm brown either side and pink the rest of the way. At least this time it stopped bleeding.I eventually took it home...as a take away and cooked it at home. Waitress didnt know the food and told me I could not get a sample of the curry as it was cooked on order only. I told her If curry was cooked on order, I definitely didnt want it, curry needs to cook for hours. This is why I had a steak instead. Bitter disappointment. Tomato sauce in a dirty bottle of dregs was available on request only.More

Went there for a 90th birthday supper . We ordered a sushi platter with 64 pieces to share , when it arrived we were shocked by the small size of the pieces and to top it all every piece was made from the same ingredients..., grated carrot seemed to be the in thing for the day ! The chef really spoiled us with all the carrots ! . We complained as we did not find any salmon or any other meaty parts and the feedback we got was that it is there .... we must just look for it . Now it seems this chef is a comedian as well. We also ordered some Halloumi cheese for starters and boy was this a disappointment , tuff as hell and zero taste , did not even came with a lemon . Somebody else in the group ordered a platter with prawns and some fish , the prawns was not edible all , must be the chef's secret recipe to convert customers to become vegetarians , hey that explains the carrot in the sushi . Two other plates of food was ice cold when it arrived at the table but was quickly sorted out with the help of a micro-wave oven . Will this restaurant see any of us again ..... nope !More
