The menu stated burger and wedges and what I got was one small square of ciabatta with a ball of mince meat on top with four wedges and a few salad leaves. When I asked for another slice of bread to make it like a proper burger I was told it was a ‘gourmet burger’! Very disappointing to have to pay €12 for half a burger and only FOUR wedges. Absolute rip off, over priced and pretentious, left the restaurant hungry.

Hi I have frequented the lemon leaf several times, Nice ambience in the cafe, In stark contrast to the last users review I found the staff there to be very friendly, obliging and seem to be very hard workers. Having only been there a couple of times I have had chats with the girls, Jor , Kalai( not sure if im spelling their name correctly) and especially Hazel . I believe that a smile creates the atomsphere in this cafe

Keep up the good work ;-)
