    Absolutely outstanding service. I had ordered the bacon cheeseburger and the meat was still a bit red and the waiter/ waitresses had absolutely no problem changing it for me and came out with fresh chips too. The food is stunning and the vibes in the place were lovely. Great food and great service! Will definitely be back again.

    We ordered cocktails for our table, which tasted like they had no alcohol in them. When I asked to send mine back I was refused and had to order a replacement, I ended up paying €13 for a single rum and coke. The only option for one of the group was a veggie burger as they had ran out of prawn tacos. The food was late to arrive, they forgot to bring a portion of chips then charged us twice for them on the bill. Very poor experience, I wouldn’t go back.
    Bison Bar & BBQResponded on 7 February 2024
    Hi LisaM, Thank you for your feedback, and I'm sorry for the disappointing experience you had with our cocktails. I've personally taken steps to address this issue by revising our drinks menu, set to be released in two weeks. I've removed the unsatisfactory cocktail from your bill and would like to offer you a different beverage that I believe will better suit your taste. We'd love the opportunity to welcome you back and receive your valuable feedback on our improved offerings. Your satisfaction is our priority, and we're committed to ensuring your next visit exceeds your expectations. Kind Regards, Rafael Mello.

    Limited menu and choices of food and average in taste. Good for a quick fill up but not a special occasion. Area was clean, nothing fancy but service was great!
