    Fabulous location for Victoria Theatre. Comfortable, palatial surroundings and the staff were excellent, attentive without being over the top. Food was amazing, everything we ordered (3 of us) was delicious and great value for money considering the location. Cocktails are superb too and very well priced.

    Six of us fined at BBar prior to going to see Hamilton and chose it partly due to its easy proximity to the theatre but also because of other reviews. We were not disappointed. The restaurant was quiet (early to dine for most) and so perhaps the atmosphere was not as buzzy as we like but the meal was superb, the service excellent, and we liked the funky decor. We will return.

    great atmosphere, service was excellent and food was very nice. visited early on Friday evening (5pm) chose not to have the pre-theater menu but eat from the normal menu, my young girls (13 and 11) loved it . walking distance from the apollo victoria theater, so it was a win win. we all shared 2 starters & i had 3 beers and my wife had 2 wines and my girls had deserts and the bill was £40 per head . recommend the chilli linguine prawn, and teh chicken burger was lovely . fully recommend

    We met some friends here for lunch and due to travel difficulties were later arriving than planned. The staff could not have been nicer and did not make us feel rushed when we arrived. The food was good, nicely presented, freshly cooked and the quality of the fish I had was very high. It was lovely to hear a little bit about the background to the restaurant from the staff and understand the African themed decor. The chairs are worth a special mention, very comfortable indeed!

    Restaurant was extremely clean and tables at a comfortable distance from one another. Staff were welcoming and cheerful. Service could not be faulted and attention to detail was beyond compare. Price for pre-theatre menu was excellent value and the food was of high standard too. Spring rolls, meatballs and rice pudding were all delicious and highly flavoursome. Highly recommend
