Extortionate prices.
£4(£3.95)for an Americano, we ordered two coffees & were served & charged for two large coffees £8 unknown to us.
Really ripping off the tourists.

Eggs from breakfast were microwaved & rock hard.

I questioned the price of the coffee and they felt it was acceptable although we stayed in a 5 star hotel and paid £2.50 for a much nicer coffee there.

Don’t waste your money

The food at the cafe was lovely. However, I found the staff to be quite rude and although we had booked a table there were still people eating at this when we arrived 5mins early and there was nowhere to wait. We had to wait around 10mins for our table and the table we were given was extremely cramped and although the food was very nice, we were uncomfortable so couldn't enjoy the meal.

Really not worth it. This place is quite expensive and bad food.

One member of our group had a pot of tea. Not the flavour he ordered as there wasn’t really any flavour at all - when this was replaced it still wasn’t the flavour he ordered.

The sandwiches/wraps/Panini were also nothing special - plasticy cheese, very little flavour and disappointing fillings.

The cheese, chicken and bacon seemed to be lacking chicken and bacon, and the Mexican filling for the wrap included a little bit of slightly chilli mayo... hmm

Salad with the sandwiches was some rocket leaves a few pieces of cucumber and a couple of small tomatoes. Not really overly fresh or inspiring.

The other member of our group had a salad, which was more rocket and cucumber in a bowl but with some iceberg in there. This was alright apart from the pesto dressing, which was obviously just a tube of pesto which had been squeezed over the top.

Definitely avoid this one. Big nope on eating here
