In the past we've tended to go with what we know and just eat pizza or pasta at Dante's, but tonight we both fancied something different. I had... More

Been several times over the years and food is always very nice, never been disappointed. It always seems to be busy so they are doing something well.

I ordered 2 sea bass meals for the main course as part of our meal. The excellent sea bass came with just potatoes and no dressed mixed salad as stated in the menu. It looked bland. After paying, I asked the dining room Manager why this was so and he said apologies, it should have come with the salad. He... More
