    The vegetarian dishes were very disappointing but the fish and meat dishes were excellent.

    The selection of drinks and food were very good! The service was prompt and the wait staff checked in to makes sure you had everything you needed.

    Although the hotel and The Terrace restaurant is attached to the busy Charing Cross station, as soon as you enter the hotel, you forget about it and are only distracted by the sumptuous interior of both the hotel and the restaurant.

    I took my fiancée for our 3 year anniversary and had left a note about it at the time of my online booking. I was pleased that this was taken into account since we got a complementary glass of champagne ?? as well as best wishes from the staff.

    The food was good, the menu offers a reasonable choice but I was not impressed with the wine list, I defaulted to an okay French wine in the end.

    Our waiter was great and smiling all the time and the table we got, by he huge bay window and overlooking the Strand was a winner.

    An enjoyable experience overall. I would definitely go back there.

    Superb service, we were very well looked after by a charming waitress, nothing was too much trouble. My booking requests were accommodated; one vegetarian and chairs with arms for my elderly parents and we enjoyed the views towards Trafalgar Square. The location is handy for pre-theatre and, although in a busy spot, the restaurant is tranquil and relaxed.
    The afternoon tea was excellent quality, presented on pretty china and is very good value for money. Our teas were replenished and more sandwiches offered.

    Nice meal. Food was very good although desert not quite warm enough

    Excellent meal and good value offer - steak & glass of Malbec. Steak was beautiful & wine excellent. Good location. I think a board advertising the restaurant would be a good idea as if I hadn't seen the offer on the Internet via Bookatable I would never have known about this restaurant. Staff very attentive, décor & ambiance all very good. Would definitely recommend.

    The food was good. The service was cheerful but slow and inept.

  • ((((( 12 April 2017 by Karen Moss from London

    Booked a "Feast on London 3-course for £24.95" deal for dinner with friends and we were very happy with the choice - particularly enjoyed the beef medallions and the sticky toffee pudding. The wine was not overpriced either and the service was very efficient and friendly. We probably overstayed our welcome (left the table after midnight!) but they just let us be, which we really appreciated. Couldn't be handier for Charing Cross Station(!) and the decor was gorgeous, with a great table overlooking the Strand. Would definitely recommend and return here.
