    Horrible. Service: Booked a table for 3 in advance on the terrace, showed up on time with no table available. If you have a booking service please stick to the bookings because people is counting on you. Have to sit on the terrace (3 ppl) at a tiny table for 2. Staff was not helpful, moved us only when people left from another table (after 40 mins). Food: Poor quality and tiny portions. Both me and my friend had stomach problems after. Location: Very small place, loud noise, tiny space

    Hi Anna, Thank you for sharing your feedback with us. We apologise for the inconvenience caused by the mix-up with your table reservation. We understand it was frustrating to initially be seated at a smaller table, even though your friend arrived later and was able to join comfortably. We did offer complimentary drinks to make up for any inconvenience caused. Whilst we were pleased to personally hear your friends positive feedback when she was at Publiq and that she enjoyed the food, setting, and atmosphere during their time at the restaurant, we regret that your experience fell short of expectations.. Given your experience, we understand if you choose not to return. Your feedback is valuable to us, and we appreciate the opportunity to address your concerns. Best regards Publiq.

    Excellent experience at Publiq last night. Food was really nice. Service even better. Made our anniversary meal really special. Loved the risotto in particular.

    Food and drinks were lovely but service was questionable. Waitress was friendly but one waiter was quite dismissive and unwelcoming. Considering the prices you would expect to be treated nicely.

    We booked a table for lunch because on open table have the option for it but when we arrived there they told us that they don’t have lunch menu only for brunch so we decided to try it and after that we decided to find another place for lunch so please could you modify in the bookings that they don’t serve lunch. Thanks
