Pizza was nice but service lacking....menus left on table then waitress walked away before we'd even sat down...no drinks order taken as we perused menu. Slow service considering it was virtually empty. Need to up game compared to other riverside restaurants not very far away. Great location by river so it really should be a success.

I recently went to Ta Bouche in Ely for a company lunch. This was my second visit to that place, i have been there for an after dinner only. As it was the first time I had lunch there, I wanted to try the burger. Probably it was better if I have had chosen a salad. A tasteless burger, never had anything similar before. That's a shame, because this place does amazing cocktails! Well, now I know what not to order next time..

Met a friend here for breakfast and the full English was one of the best I've ever had! Tapas style food and wines very good too, but be aware food isn't served in the evening. Staff are friendly and willing, outside seating tends to be used by smokers which is a bit restricting. Inside is comfortable and stylish.

Visited the Ely resturant on 10th July - the service was very good and the setting lovely but the food and drink spoiled what could have been a nice night. It was very close to being good but not quite there.

To explain, the diet coke that was served was flat and even after sending the first glass back for the lack of fizz, the second one was no better. The main which was pan fried mackeral was very nice but the dessert was another disappointment. I opted for the fresh fruit salad with yoghurt and honey. The fruit was lovely and fresh but no way was the yoghurt - yoghurt. It was a runny watery cream which was no use with the fruit as it just run off anything it was poured on - not that you could pour much as the ensemble was served on a slate!

I did point out all this to the waitress to no avail.

Service is good, although I would not class the venue as a restaurant, more of a coffee shop that serves food during the day and a vibrant bar at night. Make sure you order at the bar. Staff are always friendly and polite and food is consistently good. The only downside is the lack of a view!
