Always have Italian Fare but decided on fillet steaks. One with hollandaise sauce, mash and green beans. The other one just grilled , onion rings and chips. Med rare and medium. Both grilled to perfection!!! That does not often happen and one couId see the difference between the two when looking at the meat! I had a delicous Anura wine and he had beer. What a splendid evening. We did congratulate the chef. DEFINITELY going back soon. Go and give it a try you will be delighted. Needless to say pasta and pizzas to die for.

On Mothers Day ordered Take Away to be collected at 2pm from Stretta Hillcrest. Was not ready at 2pm. Had to wait spprox half zn hour. Meals ordered: Seafood Pasta - all seafood overcooked tough, appeared to be "warmed up". Sauce excessively rich. Pasta tough. Very unpleasant, mostly inedible. Chicken pasta the same - very unpleasant. Pizza also unacceptable - seafood on top apparently frozen znd placed on pizza in oven, watery inside. Melanson- the only item which was reasonably acceptable and edible. This was a most unacceptable meal and if it had been served in the restaurant all dishes would have been sent back as unacceptable. All meals expensive and totally unacceptable. Will NOT return.
