Groupon rate made it good value for money. We were in a medieval cell, food was served on plates and metal trays so half and half realistic, not quite sure about the theme and expected it to be more of an experience, waiting staff were in Orange prison overalls, weren't we meant to be the prisoners? They could make it more exciting and interactive. We did check out the other cells and ours was quite plain compared to some. The actual cell did get quite warm, air con was in the corridor. Don't think i would pay full price to go there again.

This themed restaurant is a really good experience. They have gone all out on the theme, from the names of the dishes to the presentation. The food is ok but the décor and presentation make up for it.

The arabita pasta tasted like tin and was spicy which was odd. The fish was very greasy, chips where acceptable. Nice atmosphere, but food not so great.

Poor service, dirty toilets, male staff using ladies toilets. Although the website said they were open all day when we arrived at 2pm we were told "you know we close at 3pm" which an hour is fine. Altough there was only 2 couples we was waiting on the food so when 3pm came they started turning out the lights in the other cells was made to feel uncomfortable.

Food poor, even though you know you are not paying over the odds - wasn't even worth the Groupon Price! No way would return at any price - neither food nor service would encourage a return.
