Some friends and I visited the Cool Cats' Cafe in Camberwell and had such a lovely evening. This restaurant is comfortable, good lighting, good food and a really as friendly service. It won't break the bank either. There is live music from some incredibly talented people, that beat the X factor contestants any day! Please try this restaurant it's great :)!

Went here on a voucher deal so it was an absolute steal at around £20 for 2 courses and a glass of wine each. Only one guy serving the bar and restaurant but kitchen were very slow with starters supposedly making the salsa, which was good but took a long time to come. My lamb was good but at £18 full price I would have expected it to be, where as my mums sea bass was quite plain and kind of vinegary. Main courses really varied in price, as you could have chicken breast with vegetables for as little as £7.
What were very cheap were the desserts, all £4 or under and we shared a very nice chocolate mascarpone cheesecake.
Certainly worth giving a go if you're a local even if just for a drink

Thanks for your helpful comments and sorry if we got a little behind making the salsa - next time you come please do let us know on the night if you'd like anything changed. Perhaps pop by one Friday when we have live music one week?

Lovely bar in South London.
Quiz nights, movie nights & live bands.
Friendly staff & nice food.
A stone's throw from burgess park & walking distance from the bustle of camberwell & Peckham.

Visited this cafe for an evening meal on a Saturday night with a special deal voucher purchased online.

I can now see why they are running a deal!

The food was extremely average at best, odd sized portions (eg. Huge bowl of humous for a starter and tiny amount of potatoes with the main)

The Mains took a good while to arrive despite there being only one other table of people in the place, got to the point where we were looking around to see if any food was coming out of the kitchen.

Service was ok and friendly.

Disastrous open mic night with a very very inappropriate act, very weird and ruined the whole evening.

Terrible atmosphere.

I wouldn't visit again, plenty of far superior places in Camberwell/lordship lane etc

Hello there,

Thanks for your comments.

We're sorry that you didn't like the first act in our fortnightly Open Mic night - occasionally the acts can be a bit hit and miss but generally, and particularly the musicians, they help create a friendly, informal atmosphere and other customers do seem to appreciate this (http://www.coolcatscafe.com/images/reviews/weekender1200.jpg).

We do also encourage customers to raise any issues about food with us during their visit and it now seems we must have misunderstood your positive comments on the night. If you do chose to visit us again, drop us an email first and we'll offer your voucher deal again (£19 for a two course meal for 2 with wine).

Great place for an easy laid back dinner. Food is superb and service is excellent, what more could you want? Will be going back to try breakfast and lunch soon.
