    Dined there on a Saturday afternoon, and ordered from the Brunch menu. The food was tasty and well cooked, the decor of the restaurant is quite quirky

    It was the most disappointing experience I’ve ever had. The table was dusty, no table cloth, the starter dish was truly insulting, it was served on a tiny odd plate, the squid was hardly there, in a sea of deep fry breadcrumbs with a quarter of a lime and one leaf of rocket. I made my disappointment very clear to the Manager as soon as it was served. The main dish was almost equally bad. The fish wasn’t freshly cooked and it was served on a bed of mixed beans in tomato sauce which was a questionable pairing and resembled soup rather than sauce. The desert- passion fruit crem brûlée was absolutely awful and we sent it away immediately. My Merlot arrived in a dirty glass.
    What a way to spoil someone’s New Year’s Eve dinner! Beach Blanket Babylon is in a league of its own when it comes to that. I will never recommend it to anyone, in fact quite the opposite I will share my review with my friends to safeguard them. My experience doesn’t qualify for any stars!

    Overall quite disappointing. The service was poor (it was NYE and the staff were more interested in having fun than serving guests) and it took ages to get drinks. The food was average- the “beef Rossini” was actually just a steak and the gnocchi had about 5 pieces of gnocchi with the rest being salad. However the music was fun and the atmosphere was good, so perhaps this is just a place for drinks.

    Lovely decor, atmosphere and surroundings. The food was nice too. But what ruined the experience was the awful service. Our small plate of Olives never ever arrived. We waited nearly an hour between our starter and main. I had to ask the waitress where our food was in the end. When she finally brought it out, both of our dishes were stone cold. It had obviously been sat waiting to be delivered for a long time. They did make us new dishes but this theme continued. We waited a further half an hour for our desert. And when it finally came out it was missing the cream and we were told they didn't have any left!
    It seems like they really need more staff and some of the staff seem like they don't want to be there. Service scores 0
    Its a shame because with the right staff this would be a wonderful restaurant.

    Great location. I've been there before. But this time the service was not very good. Very very slow. They forgot bread, they forgot to come sometimes to ask if we need something else after the main courses and we waited a lot of time. We ordered cakes and after 45minutes and two reminders, they told us that it was no more possible to have cakes. Also for the bill we have to wait a lot of time.

    I’d booked a table for my family, we all absolutely loved our dinner experience.
    There was convenient parking outside (lucky as it was raining!), the food came in good time and everything was delicious! The server we had was super friendly and was more than happy to take a few pictures for us as well. Overall a great dinner!

    only very limited brunch menu on offer which we weren't expecting for our special Anniversary lunch. The a la carte was not available... food was nice but it was a burger. Service very poor. We were not greeted or acknowledged whatsoever by the Manager who appeared stressed... drinks were ordered and forgotten, and after requesting the dessert menu and not receiving that 20 minutes later, we decided to cut our losses and go on without. The restaurant was practically empty so no excuse really. Overall we thought the food was nice and the cocktails delicious but the service was very poor.
    Also we were sat by the window which was lovely as it is a nice venue but it was very cold and draughty. I'd request a fireside seat in these winter months.
