I visited The Playwright again in June ‘18. I’ve dined there at least once each summer for the past 12 years. The atmosphere, food and service are excellent always. You are made feel welcome as soon as you arrive. I visit many restaurants on the Costa each year and always make sure to include a night or two at the Playwright. Food is of a very high quality and prices are very reasonable. We were given a complementary drink, on the house , on our last visit. We are valued customers it seems and it was a nice touch. We will continue to dine there and I would highly recommend a visit there for those who like fine dining.

We ate here last night as a family of 6 adults and 2 small children. The staff were very welcoming and friendly. The menu was very varied and every dish we had was delicious. Would definitely recommend and will certainly be back.

The food was very good and we both couldn’t fault the quality, the mussel starters where great and the lambs liver main was very good as was the salmon, however the service wasn’t up to scratch at all.

We only got one round of drinks the whole meal, we where never asked again if we wanted another drink, after we finished our main meal we waited 25 minutes for the plates to be cleared then after a further 20 minutes had to ask for the dessert menu ourselves.

After paying the bill other customers where given free liquor shots, we however where never offered.

There are many places to eat in Elviria and Play Wright rates high, we don’t mind paying for quality but expect good service as this usually goes hand in hand with great food in the restaurant world , our experience could have been so much better but it was clear they favoured their regular older clientele above the new younger ones.
More attention needs to be paid ensuring that service is effortless and all customers are looked after if they want new customers to return.

Hi thank you for sharing your feedback with us.
As you can see from all of our other reviews we are normally complimented on our service to customers both old and new so we are very surprised and disappointed to read yours.
I would like to apologise on behalf of everyone at the Playwright, the issues your raised regarding the service, will be dealt with by the owners.
The free shots are not a standard to all customers, they are at the managers discretion, while we do not favour our regular customers we do like to thank them for their continued support.
We are however pleased to hear you enjoyed the food and hope you will return to give us a second chance in the future.
