First time at Maffias and will definitely be going again.We both had the fillet steak with peppercorn sauce and they managed that very rare achievement of a well done steak that has no pink but is beautifully tender.The atmosphere is posh but not at all intimidating and the service was superb but relaxed.Loved it.

 

WOW What a restaurant

We viisted Maffia's yeasterday as our friends got married in Colchester and we wanted to go to a restauant that we knew we could trust to deliver the best, highest quality food and again they didn't dissapoint. Whenever we visit our friends in Walton my partner says "I hope we are going to Maffia's". Other restaurants in the area are fine but I've never been anywhere like Maffia's before. The service is brilliant and the proprietors and staff are so friendly, nothing is too much trouble. We have been going to this restaurant for at least 4-5 years (Maybe more) and have always had a top class meal, never one complaint.
The establishment is spotless and we would be really upset if they ever closed down or moved on as we have so many pleasant memories of this lovely restaurant.

You may think these ratings are a little harsh, however they would be 0's if there was an option!! I only say this as I am unable to comment on any of the above as I have never been. Odd you may think that I am writing a review on a place I have never been to? Well the reason being is that we researched the area before visiting Clacton for a week and found this lovely looking restaurant, we decided not too book before we got there but would have a look 1st to see if it was what we expected. We found it quite close to where we were staying for a weeks holiday so immediatly called to book a table. They do not open until Thursday so we left a message asking for a call back to book a table on Friday evening (our last evening) but heard nothing back. So we called again thinking that maybe they had missed the message (even though the answer machine message asks you to leave a message if you want a call back to book a table!) We left the same details again and heard nothing back! We thought that this was appaling service, even if the call back was to advise that no tables were available we would have been grateful just for knowing. We even gave them the benefit of the doubt and waited for them to re-open Thursday lunch time.. but still we heard nothing so had to make alternative arrangements for our last evening out. Yes we could have called when they were open again but felt that if a simple call back did not happen what kind of service could we expect when there!?!?!? Yours, 2 very disgruntled 1st time visitors to Clacton.

 

brilliant !!
