It makes me so happy to always see my old regulars .My special Pasta has been a great success in season and having a non-dairy pasta really works. A pity my staff where not on form , I addressed this with them. Thanks Trevor.

My apologizes for the late wine ! As for the platter, I have no idea how you where disappointed ? Its such a good meal ? Both write ups before and after you raved about the platter.Maybe you where having a bad day ? Trevor.

We visited Al Pescatore on Wednesday for lunch. We ordered two seafood platters to share as a family. The prawns were huge; the Calamari tender; kebabs barbecued beautifully and veges sweet and colourful. Best value seafood platter we've ever been served in a stunning setting.
