your comments review this restaurant

If you're visiting the Trafford Centre make a point of visiting Est Est Est. Besides the food being one of the best meals my wife, son and I tasted in a long while; the staff in particular Carlos and Christina were very attentive, friendly and professional. I don't normally write reviews but felt it warranted the recognition here. Would definitely return. The garlic bread with herby pomodoro sauce was to die for, and not always available in many eateries.

The restaurant looked promising and was busy but the food was poor for the price. We were seated on the edge of the ‘outside’ seating near the toilets of the Orient section which made us feel a little uncomfortable but as is the nature of eating at the Trafford centre we put up with it. I ordered the bruschetta which was the first disappointment. The tomatoes, skinned and seeded, were virtually flavourless as was the dressing. My partner had the mozzarella sticks and mushroom starter, the breaded mushrooms were ok but the mozzarella sticks were lacking in mozzarella and taste.

For the main course I opted for the linguine Gamberi. If you want to pay nearly £12 for SIX tiny little prawns and a picante dressing which was again lacking flavour then here is your place but I prefer value for money which this certainly wasn’t. Having said that my partners Arrabiata style penne and pepperoni wasn’t too bad in flavour and had plenty of meat.

Drinks wise I opted for the homemade Sicilian lemonade which was ok but not worth the £2+ paid. My partners Elderflower ‘presse’ was from a bottle so was as to be expected but overpriced. Finally to top it all, when we asked for the bill we were given it and then left there waiting forever. We were expecting them to come back for our payment but in the end had to seek out a waitress.

Overall the meal was very disappointing and in my opinion way overpriced for the quality. Service was ok until it came to paying. There are definitely better restaurants in the Trafford centre and probably a better Italian so I will not be returning to ‘est est est’ again.

My two friends and I had lunch here on the 27th May. We ordered garlic bread for a starter, which arrived at the same time as the main course. The garlic bread was tasteless. My main course pasta dish was very small. It was just warm - as though it had been plated up for 15 mins before being served.

We then ordered desserts and coffee. The coffee came a good 20 mins before the desserts. I complained to the staff, but was told they had been waiting for the kitchen staff to prepare them, because they were so busy. How long does it take to cut a slice of cheese cake??? All the desserts were just awful and bland. We told the staff, who didn't care!!

Food - poor. Service - poor!!

It cost £38 for the three of us, which is great if the food is good. This wasn't unfortunately!
