Just went into this restaurant last night. As I came up to it I was sure I'd made a mistake, in fact I very nearly turned around when I saw the scaffolding, which barely conceals bright orange paint. But I took the plunge, and was greeted by a very energetic young waiter. He asked the magic words 'Where do YOU want to sit' and I knew i'd be fine service wise.
I ordered something called to 'Heartbreaker' and was sadly defeated by it. It was simply too big. It cost me £10ish for the burger and it was simply massimo.
I also had a glass of red Tempranillo, which the waiter recommended. It was surprisingly high quality wine, but was fairly expensive. Look at £5 a large glass, but as I said, Mid to top range in quality.
There was a screen on the table which provided games and a quiz for my partner and I, and we were in the restaurant for hour because of it. They were simply fantastic. We could have ordered through them but prefer the human interaction, we pushed a button and our waiter was there instantly.
It took 10minutes for our meal from ordering, I was pleased with this. My partner ordered a veggie burger which didn't sound very nice - but was actually 'The best she'd had' and don't tell her I said it, but she is fussy!
They include service on the bill sadly, but I had it taken off without any dirty looks from the waiter at all - a first.
Overall, a mid to top range meal in quality, and a unique dining experience.
