Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Great central location, ideal for theatres. We enjoyed our meal and the food was good. Be aware however that the menu on the website seems to have much lower prices than the menu you get at the restaurant. That said, the prices we paid were...fairly typical for the area.More

Went in with a friend before the theatre. My steak sandwich and her chicken salad both delicious. Friendly staff made the visit very pleasant🥰

Perfect spot to start the day. 2 minutes from National. Charming staff. Fresh fruit and great coffee. Make it a pit stop and enjoy your day!

This was a disappointing breakfast. The food was not great. The coffee was fine, but that's the best thing we had. The service was okay. We'd had several good breakfasts at other places and this did not stack up by comparison.

Found this restaurant pre theatre, was not busy at time of visit. Service fine and reasonably efficient. Food average, portion sizes small. Burgers at approx £18 served without any accompaniment, chips and salad bought seperately. Grills served without bread and rice. Probably would not visit...again, expensive for what it was.More

Very slow indeed…I ordered a simple bacon sandwich and it still hasn’t arrived. Nearly twenty minutes. Possibly one star? Coffee is ok.

I almost never leave a negative review, but I would advise against this restaurant. We had a salmon filet with green beans and an order of fish and chips. The salmon was dry and the green beans seemed to be from a frozen bag. My...husband declared the fish and chips the worst he'd ever had. The restaurant was right across from the theatre we were going to, so it seemed like a good choice, but you as a diner can do better and the restaurant should do better as well. Cote, just down the street, was packed with locals, and there's a pizza place in the other direction that looked good as well.More

Terrible experience. The service took long and they did not serve us what was asked . The food itself is not good. Several other much better options in the neighborhood. To be avoided!

3 of us visited last night for the 1st time and we were not disappointed, the staff were very friendly and attentive and the food was amazing really good, the only reason I didn’t give a 5 * is because our cocktails were very poor,...I believe it was because it was nearly closing time and the staff wanted the restaurant closed, the presentation was very poor, no fruit or trimmings on the cocktails which come as standard. But as I said everything else was beautiful, thank you!!More

The worst meal and service I’ve ever experienced. We were really looking forward to a lovely evening out with a meal and theatre trip in London. The restaurant wasn’t busy so we thought we could get served quickly. We were ‘greeted’ by a surly waitress,...whose only interaction was to take the order….and then get it wrong. The burger was the tiniest I’ve ever seen and contained three scraps of chicken which was overcooked and straw like in texture. One piece consisted mainly of a bone. The tables were so close together at the far end that it was difficult to get in and out. The manageress and another member of management were seated at the most accessible table in the restaurant, doing accounts. The manageress was more concerned with looking after her daughter than running the restaurant! The staff were very matter of fact in their manner and didn’t bother to check up on customers. The meal was over priced and almost inedible. Unfortunately we didn’t have time to go looking for an alternative venue, otherwise we would have left!!! A total disappointment to what should have been a great start to our evening out.More

A great small place close to Trafalgar Square with options to suit everyone, including a really good range of gluten free options. We had toasties and cakes, but they have grills and main dishes, all of which looked nice. The decor was welcoming and arty...and service was super quick and friendly too!More

This was the ideal place for us to have lunch before heading across the road to a matinee performance at The Duke of York's Theatre. We had a really delicious lunch served speedily and efficiently by the lovely ladies and it was good value too....This is definitely the place to dine and particularly if you are visiting the Theatre across the road!More
