First impressions aren't always correct. When we sat down to use our grab one voucher the 80's style drab decor made us a little apprehensive. Those apprehensions soon disappeared. The staff were friendly and attentive. The meals were superb. My lamb shank fell off the bone accompanied by a rich well seasoned sauce. The vegetables were well cooked. Katy had a beautiful moist duck confit. Will be going back.

Beautiful, tasty food, very fresh. Smiling friendly service. We had the seafood bouillabaise and the scallops and they were superb.

The food was beyond amazing. I've eaten in many restaurants and Amphora was incredible and righr up there. Seafood Chowder, Prawns and Scallops entrée's were the best I've had. The steak was cooked perfectly but I wish we had of ordered less so we could have eaten dessert. Lisa and Johnny were wonderful hosts with service second to none. Can't wait to go back. Easiest 5* I've ever given.
