It can be hard to find decent drop in food places while traveling for work. San Marino gets full marks for making my life easier! Great food.

The food here is always amazing and always freshly cooked, and a vibrant atmosphere.. I had a lovely Lasagne / chips / salad which I can recommend for anyone, because it was delicious and cooked to perfection.. Also my girlfriend went for a breakfast set...1, which she said was awesome and did make her day, because the eggs/ sausages and everything else was cooked perfectly and tasted like a Dream.. excellentMore

I ordered a large amount of various sandwiches from San Marino for a big funeral at the local church. It was ordered well in advance. On the day, everything arrived, thrown all together in large containers. It was a mess! I had expected, not unreasonably,...for them to be presented nicely on platters with a few trimmings. This would surely be an expectation of any catering facility. The bread was cheap and although there was a good amount of filling in the sandwiches, it was basic and without the inclusion of a bit of salad or anything that most places would add. I cannot say how upsetting this was. It was an embarrassment to present food like this without any care or attention and it wasn't cheap. It would have been far better to order from a supermarket.More

I have been to San Marino for the past few years. I always had a nice time there and the food is good. Unfortunately, today I was really disappointed to see that no staff member was wearing the mask and most tables were not sanitised...after being used. I don't think I will be back there until they respect the safety measures.More

I like this place and been here many many times. Huge portions, lovely decor and great choice. Always a warm welcome and good service. Only one bad point, the only take cash payments which is a bit Of a pain in this day and age.

Home cooked quality food at a reasonable price is a rare thing to find. This local Greek restaurant covers all your comfort food, lunch favourites and their own specialty dishes in a relaxed atmosphere.

Great caff with fantastic selection of food and drinks at a very affordable price. Portions are huge and in all the many occasions I have visited this place, I always left with a very full belly. Service is good and decor is very nice. Only...one bad point, they only take cash payments, which in this day and age is a bit of an inconvenience.More

If the review was based solely based on the food I would have rated it higher as it was really good, plenty of it and reasonably priced. I didn't rate it higher because they didn't get the order quite right, gave chips instead of rice...although they did offer to add rice as a side dish. We turned it down as the meal size was big and there would've been wastage. They then charged us the full menu price and not the lunch special price which I quite clearly pointed out when placing our orders.More
