Beautiful decor at Layla's with a wide Italian menu to suit all tastes! I thoroughly enjoyed a prawn linguini for mains which was full of flavour and a warm chocolate brownie with ice cream! Very reasonable for great food and fantastic service - our server for the night was Pawos! Would recommend and looking forward to coming back again soon

We relished a delicious brunch on Sunday. The cocktails alone are worth a detour . The roof top is fabulous. We had great eggs bene and pizzas. Really chic comfortable chairs. Oh and there's a swing too just the thing for chilling with a cool beer

Booked a table for our 2nd wedding anniversary. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. We hit up the brunch menu, the steak and eggs were cooked to perfection, my wife enjoyed the Daviola pizza. Washed down with a top bottle of Prosecco. They have a nice cocktail menu also if ya fancy one for the road. Which we did, several. Definitely plan on heading back to Layla’s to sample the evening menu sometime soon. We sat outside and it’s adequately sheltered with heaters. 10/10 from us.

We sat outside on the terrace. The scenery and atmosphere was lovely and we had some nice drinks. The food was unfortunately awful. I had burata to start which was not fresh. My friend had the steak which was very poor quality and fatty but was also overcooked. I had the gnocchi which was overcooked and rubber and had about 300g of peas thrown on top of it which no sauce other than a bit of butter. Very disappointing because it was such a nice setting.

This was a wonderful experience from start to finish. It was my daughters 18th birthday and it such a nice location to celebrate in. The manager met us at the door and we had a great table at the bar area downstairs, had a few drinks before going to the rooftop for a great meal. The atmosphere and food were excellent. Would highly recommend the venue for any occasion. Special thanks to the staff who are really professional and make the night.

Good food, service and ambience but our waiter’s mask was down under his nose and he kept touching it and another waitress wasn’t wearing one at all... would like to see better mask hygiene etiquette or perhaps a comprehensive visor being worn before returning... this will be how the virus spreads again...
