The food was terrible and expensive with indifferent service. We had a chewy cold quiche with a tasteless cous cous salad. The salad was full of watermelon seeds and old soggy watermelon. It is one of the worst meals I have eaten. The restaurant itself looks very nice but the food is dreadful and expensive. I have seen food presented better in a school canteen. No thought or care was taken in the preparation or presentation of the food. I would actively encourage people not to go to this restaurant but visit the pizza express across the road. I wish I had done that.

I found the warm food selection on the menu very limited. Being a 'restaurant' I thought there would be more choice. It might have been a better option eating at the cafe'. Service however was very prompt, efficient and polite.

Very limited menu. The chicken and rice main meal was warm - not hot and not very nice. The only starter was soup! We won't be eating there again!

A convenient place to meet friends from the UK and USA. A good lunch in pleasant surroundings served by a pleasant and efficient waitress. A request for sharp knives to cut the food could not be met..

We had a lovely afternoon tea in the delightful surroundings of the terrace restaurant. There was plenty to eat, a lovely pot of tea and a glass of prosecco. The service was friendly and efficient.
