The restaurant is lovely; beautiul decor - understated but classy. The food was excellent and the service second to none. We had the set menu which was delicious.

    We went as 3 colleagues for our Xmas dinner. The food was lovely. The staff were friendly and tried to be helpful. However there was a serious breakdown in the language barrier. The people in charge were English, however the waitrons really struggled to understand our questions on the menu and the cocktail list. Indeed it took several attempts to get the cocktail list in the first place.

    The waiter who took our order forgot the 3 sides. Then when we reminded them, promptly only brought 2- this took 10 minutes. The last side was brought as we were finishing up. No-one checked in on us and it took ages to first get the bill and then to get someone back to the table for us to pay.

    We sat at a banquette table, 2 on the softer seater and one on the iron chairs. The latter being really really heavy and not that comfortable. It was a trendy piece of furniture, however perhaps belongs in an external garden.

    All in all, food is lovely, venue is beautifully decorated, ambience special. The service however, needs serious work.

    Lovely warm welcome, excellent attentive service, very good food. Nice relaxed feel, open kitchen not intrusive to the ambience of the seating areas.

    We had a very good dining experience at Cigalon. First of all, what a beautiful space it is. The decor is elegant and classy. Simply gorgeous. The service is efficient and amicable. We had the deal menu of 3 courses with a cocktail at £22 (!) and the food was just superb. If there's anything to moan about, I'd say I'd like to see them improving on the quality of house wine to match their quality of food, but it is not to say what they had was not enjoyable. I would absolutely go back again.

    Is was a nice welcoming atmosphere. We were offered a more spacious table after asking to be moved . The staff were exceptionally friendly without being intrusive . The food was really good but did not have the wow factor . But this presumably was more down to the limited choice on the set menu .

    We were made to feel very welcome from the minute we arrived. The restaurant is very comfortable and has a lovely ambience with good décor and lighting each table was set so that you couldn't hear other diners. The service was very good and the staff friendly but discreet. The food was excellent and well presented, we had the set menu which had more than enough choice for a lunch time. We spent two hours just relaxing and enjoying our time without feeling we were being rushed off.
