Visit this place on a regular basis not only do we love the food but the staff are always fab with my kids. The place is beautifully decorated and I love how you can choose between the bar or the restaurant to eat. Ideally located by the beach too. Perfect for couples and family's alike xx

It was quite some time since our last visit, which had been very disappointing. However, I could not fault the food this time. The service was excellent, four people being very attentive, and the food was such good quality an excellent value for money. My only complaint would be that as a couple we were too close to the next... More

Went to Martinos Seaburn today and cannot believe the ignorant rude customer service that my mam and I experienced. After having a table booked at Santinis at 1230pm but finding out they were closed (due to a burst pipe), we walked into Martinos, we could see it was busy and approached the desk area to the left hand side as...

Called in for Sunday lunch. Service was horrendous. Lots of staff walking around like zombies trying to do anything but that they are there to do. We and other customers felt invisible at times. After giving up on waiting to be served we ordered from the bar, but not before we were made to wait for 10+ mins before someone... More

Food was 4 star. My frutti de mare was exellent, well cooked penne, plenty of fish and shellfish and an excellent white wine sauce. In our party the steak was really good and the pizzas very tasty. Service was 3 star. Too few staff but ably led, tried hard but it was all a bit frantic. Atmosphere was dire and... More

Fabulous place . Call here every Sunday for Tea with my Dad. Wish they'd serve skimmed (Red Top) Milk though for lattes as I have an intolerance to too much green or blue top milk and I prefer lattes to tea. I've mentioned it before but I'm yet to see them take the suggestion on board. Still, it's a small... More

Visited last night with the family, food was beautiful garlic bread with tomato then a huge gorgeous chicken valdostana with chips. The only problem I had was we were seated next to the kitchen which was rowdy with the clashes of plates. Didn't have room for dessert. The coffee was weak though.

Have eaten here twice now, and both times the food has been mediocre or poor. I ordered bruschetta, which came as barely toasted french bread (not very Italian), unripe/hard salad tomatoes with no detectable oil, garlic or basil dressing - instead a sugary, nasty balsamic glaze drizzled. Not what my Italian friends and relatives would consider authentic at all!! I... More
