Best pizza
Jun 2018 • Couples
Compliments to the chef. Best garlic bread and pizza I’ve tasted in Aberdeen. Service was alright but when asking for black pepper and Parmesan in pizza restaurant would expect a big wooden pepper grinder and for the server to then grind pepper over pizzas. This would have been a nice touch instead of a metal grinder just placed on our table. Didn’t mind the small dish of Parmesan though because we love lots of Parmesan.
We went here because we were given a voucher from friends for our Xmas, unfortunately they didn’t accept it because they sold our friends a cook voucher and said it could be used for anything . Told us it’s 2 separate company’s and would not accept it...sorry but surely all profits go to “one” man??

Pre Theatre Prize
May 2018 • Couples
Came here pre Aberdeen theatre trip and was pleasantly surprised. Clean, friendly, wide variety of pizza's - all well made. Nice glassof wine. No starters or other options as such, apart from olives and one daily 'special' bruschetta or the likes. But that is a positiive for me. Friends and family will know how quickly I walk away from establishments with a) pictures of food, b) more than two pages of menu, c) more than 2 or three 'styles' or regions of food.

It was perfect to have just a moderate size pizza although I would also love a half pizzza/half salad option.

Only down side is they don't take bookings except for groups of 8 or more. The website states it is not necessary, but on the evening of our visit, had we been more than 5 minutes later, we would have ben turned away.

I hope this remains an Aberdeen success story. It feels pitched about right to me.

Shocking!
May 2018 • Friends
I've been wanting to try this place after hearing only good things about it. The place has the potential to be great but customer service was awful.

The food was amazing, best gluten free pizza I've ever had. Couldn't rave about it higher but seriously let down by unfriendly, incompetent, downright rude staff.

Firstly we had a long wait to order drinks. We were served by 2 different waitresses....one worse than than the other. Drinks were slammed down on the table. Were made to feel unwelcome and an inconvenience. Sat with empty glasses and plates until we got up and left. No offer of more drinks or dessert. On leaving, noticed we had been over charged on the bill. They did not like it when disputing this.

Needless to say will not be returning to dine in here.

Great find on Back Wynd

Spotlessly clean, not imposing, friendly efficient staff and lovely food. The orange almond cake is delicious and a fab flat white which isn’t bitter. Great prices too

Absolute nonsense and waste of money!
Apr 2018 • Friends
Waitress looked harassed and was not at all friendly. She raised her eyebrows when I order a decaff cappuccino as if I’d asked for a dead rat! My pizza was burnt when it came and I couldn’t eat it. On top of everything the chairs were very uncomfortable. Pretentious nonsense.

Would not return and would not recommend. No idea where all these great reviews are coming from!

Works night out
Apr 2018 • Friends
Had a great night for a works night out. Fantastic tuition from Lewis - he kept it interesting and entertaining. The food was amazing too and all the staff were very friendly. It’s such a shame it’s closing down.

Not value for money imo
Mar 2018 • Friends
I had not expected to share the cooking with another person on the course - especially at the cost and more so at the detraction from the overall experience. This is fine if you're a beginner but not of you cook regularly with fresh ingredients it's behind the times in where regular people are today in their cooking abilities! Time for celebrity chefs to realise that today's cook's are far more experienced in cultures, ingredients and skills and adapt your courses to reflect this. Very, very disappointed in the day.

Brilliant day cooking in a sociable setting
Mar 2018 • Friends
We had a lovely day at the school cooking mussel and crab Thai broth, pan fried salmon and a sponge pudding with a delicious passion fruit and orange sauce. It was a very relaxed day with copious quantities of wine. Lewis the tutor was great and the utensils and pots were whisked away so there was no washing up.

If you enjoy good food, learning how to better your cooking skills in a friendly, relaxed environment I would suggest you book a class. 2nd time attending, first in Aberdeen - Chef Lewis is fantastic, he certainly made the day, his teaching, presention and delivery skills on the day was perfect. Looking forward to my next class sometime soon. Highly recomended.

What a great evening
Jun 2017 • Friends
This was my first cooking course outside my hometown - and in another language. However, it was fantastic. We were a small group of about 10 people, most of them from Aberdeen. Only my and my friend being from Germany. It was great fun and the meal we prepared was so absolutely delicious. It was really great fun and I would come again for a cooking course!
