Description: Soho Square introduces a new and unique style of cuisine to Egypt The Caligula nightclub has been re-launched with a new entertainments concept. The hot rock dining and ballroom dancing! A piece of volcanic rock is heated for over several hours before being brought directly to your table. You then have the pleasure of being able to cook a dinner of your own choosing from a large and varied menu. Ancient cultures have been using this method for thousands of years, it is also very healthy as no oil or fat is used during the process, all the nutrients are sealed within. Hot rock dining is a very relaxed and sociable way to eat. There are no lengthy pauses in conversation when the plates of food are served and everybody "tucks in" as you cook the food at your own pace. This ensures that every last piece is hot and fresh. The whole method of dining becomes more leisurely and slower, where everybody tends to pause for conversation far more frequently. Only the freshet cuts of meat and fish are selected, you can choose from such sumptuous delights as Australian loin of lamb, black Angus beef ribs, Cajun salmon steaks, prawn and calamari skewers, plus much more.

For anybody seeking a new dining experience, try Caligula Hot Rock restaurant. Unique concept - cooking your own food on a hot stone. It has everything - a great menu, unique ambience, accommodating and friendly staff. I had their steak on a hot stone and it was great. Fresh and high quality beef that is so tender, grilled just before my eyes. Will be back for sure. It's been a while since I had steak so good.

It seems the perfect restaurant that has consistently met our expectations and satisfied all the criteria of a positive dining experience. The service is excellent! Food is outstanding! The servers are attentive, energetic, friendly, and professional. The ambiance is relaxed and cozy, great ancient Greek decor. We found a real gem and were pleasantly surprised. We can't wait to go back!

Situated within the Savoy Hotel this place reminded us of Las Vegas. An amazing setting, a bit like a clash between a Roman Colosseum, a night club and a movie set, but in a good way. Service as alway in the Savoy first class, and not bad value with two courses, and wine for two people at about £65. The novelty is that you cook your own main course on a hot rock. Tip number 1, quickly remove the food from the stone then cutting small bits off return them to the stone a piece at the time to cook. Tip number 2, don't have desert, really disappointing, you'll regret it.

sorry this was a major let down during our stay
got our starters wrong then had a go at us when we didnt complain
been to a lot of steak houses (use some tips for miller and carter chaps)
also my parter is a veggie and they served bacon on the salad, what a joke
goats cheese starter was bland when it came eventually
didnt wait for steaks, asked for the bill and left
wont be going back here when we stay again
very poor for me

The food, the service, the atmosphere, concept of the place...all perfect! Couldn't have asked for a better night. The waiter who served our table was fantastic, knowledgeable about the wine and food, polite and when we couldn't decide between menu options, his advice was really useful for us. Will definitely be going back, hats off to the restaurant management for creating an absolute peach of a restaurant!
