We receive a nice and wonderful welcoming by the waitresses when give us the seating with smile and polite. Dinner was amazing high quality of food we had fish soup to start then sea bass and apple crumble with a good price. The restaurant is amazing wide space we were comfortable in our chairs. I would like to add free parking facilities Which makes our journey even comfort

We chose at the booking, the tasting menu but we have been very disappointed by its meals. The offer is great: 99£ per couple including the matching wines. We chose the smoked salmon, which was uninteresting and a little dry, then the chicken liver pâté which was a generous portion but tasteless and covered with a butter too rich crust? The sole was the best plate, but served with potatoes only. We would have preferred with some green vegetables for example, as there hasn’t had any vegetables during the whole menu. And finally we chose the Crème Brûlée which was good but too liquid. The wines were just ok, apart from the The best part was the excellent service, and a very nice dining room with a nice view on Wimbledon common.. so in my opinion, we shouldn’t have chosen the tasting menu as it was tasteless but perhaps one or two courses from the ‘à la carte’ menu. We will not come back for the dinner.

My colleague (who is disabled and in a wheel chair) and I arrived on time for our booking and were given wonderful service from the people at Reception. They helped me with the wheelchair and also later helped me put the chair back into my car. Different service I’m afraid in the restaurant! There was nobody around to seat us, after 5 minutes I had to go and ask for assistance. When somebody finally came they showed us to a table and gave us menus. They never asked if we wanted a drink. After a good while waiting, we had to catch the eye of a server to give our order both for food and wine. The tomato and cheese starter was a disappointment, dry and tasteless with meagre amounts of cheese; the main course of chicken was also rather dry but had a sauce to moisten it. My dessert of chocolate sponge was very tasty. However, my friends cheesecake was like rubber and had obviously been left out of the fridge for some considerable time. She called the waiter over and complained. They took it away and agreed with her description! They asked her if she would like something else. She declined. As usual, in any restaurant, if food is sent back to the kitchen there is something, for example, a glass of wine given to compensate for the poor food. Nothing was offered, apart from the fact they said we would not be charged for the dessert! We were also slightly surprised by the dress code for the restaurant which appeared very lax- jeans and tea shirts? Obviously, the new management have different codes of accepted dress. The whole evening was a disappointment and we will certainly not be going back.

The restaurant is superbly located in the conservatory on the edge of Wimbledon Common, the vistas were fantastic. We enjoyed the tasty and well presented meal, however service was extremely poor. Our orders were not taken for 30 minutes, and starters and mains each took over 30 minutes to be served - this was very disappointing and unacceptable. Recommendation is for the meal only.

Lovely venue with views over Cannizzaro Park. Slightly disorganised. Took a while before we were seated and booking wasn’t checked but waiting staff were helpful and efficient, a good range of food for breakfast nicely presented. A good overall experience and one we will certainly repeat.

Not great. Booked the 3 course offer and the menu was different from the website when we got there. The waiters seemed confused as well.

Although the restaurant was lovely, and the food very good, I was very disappointed with the overall approach of the restaurant. I had booked a deal - 3 courses and a glass of wine for £18.95. I had booked this deal for a a treat for a friend, but it all came unravelled when we were handed the full menus. Although the fixed price menu was included in the main menu, it was very discreet, and I did not feel that I could direct my friend towards it without awkwardness. In addition, knowing we had booked this deal, the waitress did not ask us which glass of complimentary wine we would like, she simply handed us a wine menu. I did order off the fixed price menu, but when the bill came they had charged me the full price for each course, so I had to have the bill amended. Somewhat embarrassing. My friend ordered off the full menu, so my budgeted lunch of £38.00, came to nearly £100. Very disappointing. If a restaurant offers a deal, they should be held to it, and not create awkwardness by handing out a la carte menus. I did mention this to the waitress as I was leaving, and she apologised, initially blaming the reception staff for not clarifying the booking. However when we checked, it was clear on her booking sheet that I had booked the deal as mentioned above. She apologised again, but made no effort to make any kind of complimentary offer, nor to remove the cost of the two complimentary glasses of wine, which we did not get offered, nor did we receive, from the cost of the bottle of wine ordered. All in all, I felt deceived and ripped off, but I did not wish to complain in front of my friend, and ruin her treat.

The restaurant is very well set out, nice decorations, smart bar next to it. The food was good, I enjoyed a nice Portugese white wine, but my wife was struggling with the sloe gin spritzer which looked more like a drink for 2 than 1! The ambience is very nice, but the service in only average
Star Deal - 2 courses & a glass of house wine £18.95 per person or 3 courses & a glass of house wine £21.95 per person
Love tastes good
