The food was excellent, however, the service was rather poor. Got the impression that the waiters were only new. Long waits from the time the waiter took our orders to when the entire table of 10 received their drinks, another long wait to be served entrees, and yet another long wait to receive our mains. Our table was booked for 6 pm and the restaurant was only a third full, so it's not as if they were busy. Overall though, the waiters were very polite and very apologetic.

At first I thought the menu was very limited, but I ended up ordering one of the specials of the day - bugs with a mornay-type sauce and a couple of vege dishes on the side. The bugs were amazing! Others at the table ordered mains directly from the original menu and they enjoyed their meals immensely too. The atmosphere would have been great, if not for the intense noise level. Everyone at the table commented on it and said they would only return if they could get a table in the alfresco area.

One of the vegetarians was disappointed with the lack of variety in their menu. She thought that at least 3 of the dishes were too similar, e.g. the Porcini serving followed by the Mushrooms dish.

Great pub dining!

Was disappointed to find that it has now been re-named as "Scusa Scala" (or something like that), and it is very much a family restaurant now. I have been frequenting the restaurant as Limones ever since it opened and originally thought it was somewhere special for that "special occasion" whether it just be a romantic dinner for 2 or a group of adults. Apparently Limones, as it was, is moving to Bicton nearby, so hopefully that will have retained its original appeal to me. It's not due to open for another 8 weeks or so.

Enjoyed the views and the service by the head waiter (a male) was great, but the girl who initially greeted us wasn't too welcoming. Food was average.

We had a party of 5, including 2 vegetarians. Everyone enjoyed the tasting plates, especially the desserts! The vegetarians were really impressed with their courses... the best degustation they've experienced.

Excellent as always. I have frequented the restaurant at least half a dozen times, and never fails to disappoint me.

Although this WAS one of my favourite restaurants I won't be returning. The total of my bill should have been $160, however, initially the head waiter only charged me $137, which was put through on my debit card. He then realised his error and charged me an extra $37 (total of $174). I am normally a trusting person, so did not realise his error until I reached home and checked it against my internet banking.

Definitely my favourite local cafe restaurant by far!
Bev dined on Sat, 26th Aug 2017 (10)
Great food, the steaks and lamb dish were superb. The service tonight was a little slow, however. Only one member ordered dessert, but it took a long time, so he gave up waiting in the end.

I went for breakfast; the waitress was very attentive and ensured that a special serving of omelette was cooked for me as I am both lactose and gluten intolerant. My only criticism is that it was a little too noisy.
Bev dined on Fri, 14th Jul 2017 (10)
Because there was a long wait between the entree and main meal, the head waitress didn't charge us the two glasses of wine we ordered in between those courses. We were both delighted with that!

I frequent this restaurant a lot and the last time I was there I commented that the acoustics/music was too loud and one could hardly hear what the other was saying, but this time I noticed that there was a vast improvement.

Excellent night was enjoyed by all at the table

The first time i went I was really impressed and so were the rest of the group I was with that night, but on this occasion I went with just one friend - the meat part of our respective dishes were really nice, but the veges were a bit disappointing. My mashed potato was too "floury" and my friends were okay, but nothing special.
Bev dined on Sun, 2nd Apr 2017 (10)
I had the lamb rump special with Moroccan spices - Excellent!
Bev dined on Wed, 22nd Mar 2017 (10)
Had the 2 course set menu, with complimentary house wine for $40, + an additional glass of wine. The croquette and the risotto were superb, and the house wine was also good choice. My friend also enjoyed her croquette and gnocchi. Definitely good value!
Bev dined on Sat, 18th Mar 2017 (10)
My only criticism is that they got the drinks bill wrong - charged us for 3 glasses of Ta Nui when the person concerned definitely only ever buys 2 drinks because of the drink-driving factor. We gave it to them as a tip anyway simply because the whole table were impressed with the food. Puts a bit of a damper on the night, though, on an otherwise enjoyable evening.
Bev dined on Sun, 5th Mar 2017 (10)
The food is always great there, although my steak was over-done on this occasion. I asked for medium-rare, but it was served as medium, but delicious nonetheless. The red wine jus it was served with was a really good accompaniment.

Excellent, all round. This was my second experience at Petite Mort and will definitely be returning for more!

I have attended the Globe on a few occasions and my meals have always been satisfying. The menu is only limited, but everyone at my table of 8 enjoyed theirs. I ordered the rib eye steak, with creamy garlic prawns. I am particularly fussy about the way my steak is done (medium-rare) and it was cooked to perfection.
Bev dined on Sat, 7th Jan 2017 (10)
Limones has been one of my local favourites for many years. The food is excellent, as is the selection of wines. The only criticism is that it is way too noisy once it has filled up. They need to do something about the acoustics.
Bev dined on Sun, 18th Dec 2016 (10)
The only thing that spoiled it for us was the fact that there was a large family dining next to us, with at least two of the kids continually squealing. The third one kept fidgeting and running around. Minus the family though, the atmosphere was great.
Bev dined on Sun, 11th Dec 2016 (10)
I usually always brag about how good the meals are there, but on this occasion I found the special of the day - veal scallopini with a mushroom sauce - not up to scratch as the mushroom sauce was rather too salty for my liking. Everyone else on the table enjoyed their meals though!
Bev dined on Wed, 7th Dec 2016 (9)
Lovely food and great service, but the music was far too loud!
Bev dined on Sat, 19th Nov 2016 (8)
The waterfront location was great, but the food was just average as far as buffets go, the staff were very friendly, but table service very slow i.e. in terms of ordering drinks or having dirty plates removed. The beef cheeks were delicious! 10 marks for those!!

I am a regular at this venue, on average once every 3 weeks.

My friend and I were seated indoors and found it to be rather noisy, but that was the only minor criticism we had. The service and food was fantastic. My medium-rare eye fillet steak was cooked to perfection (and I am very fussy), and my friend enjoyed her gorgonzola and gnocchi immensely. She commented that there was just the right amount of cheese i.e. it wasn't overpowering like some other similar dishes she's tried before.
Bev dined on Sat, 29th Oct 2016 (10)
Simple menu, which doesn't appear to have changed much over the last 5 years or so, but it works! Best rump steak I've ever been served. Ordered medium rare and it was perfect!

Attended the restaurant for the 2nd time using my $50 voucher with the same friend as the first time. Unfortunately, I was rather disappointed this time around. I ordered exactly the same as I did the first time, which I thoroughly enjoyed. BUT, on this occasion both the meat croquettes and the duck were far too dry. It appeared as if they had been cooked the previous night and re-heated upon my ordering on this night. Nonetheless, my friend enjoyed her meal.

This was originally one of my favourite restaurants (at least 5 years), but seems to have gone downhill. I would have originally rated it as fine dining, but now only very average. We ordered the arancini for starters; that was very nice! BUT for the main we ordered the seafood platter for two; the fish was very nice, but there were no prawns. Normally one expects to see prawns in a seafood platter. They attempted to compensate with an abundance of smoked salmon, which I normally like, but that was over-kill. Very disappointing in that regard. Also, there were no chips, which one also normally expects on a seafood platter, or on the side. Not very good value for the price.

This was my second Degustation at the Wild Duck; enjoyed it just as much as the first time.

Had a table booked for two. I have been here at least half a dozen times. Have never been disappointed with the food, however, there was a large table gathering right next to us and we couldn't hear each other talk. Disappointing from that point of view, but the service otherwise was brilliant.
Bev dined on Sun, 15th Feb 2015 (5)
Although we all thought the food was great taste-wise, we thought it was rather expensive at $37 for the amount.
