My parents live in the area so popped in with them for coffee and a cake in the afternoon a while back. What a cool place! I got to reading the menus (got major food envy on my first trip) and as such have been back since. Food is great value, and the staff are fab. Good to see a... More

I am bitterly disappointed. A rare evening planned with old friends ruined by poor service, rude staff and mediocre food. Not even an apology!!! Not recommended.

Great atmosphere and lovely to go to grab a bite for lunch. My friend and I both had the halluomi salad recently which was really tasty. Have been here a number of times and never disappointed. Will keep returning. :)

This is a family friendly laid-back "lounge" - good quality food, great attentive staff and fair pricing. Brunches / breakfasts especially good. You can't go wrong.

while staff are friendly, atmosphere nice and place spacious ... the food is disappointing. It lacks flavour and is a bit bland. It has so much potential to be a great place to eat - really the chef should get his spices out.Will try again though.

Ate here this evening. Really appetising menu, delicious food (although portions a little small) and good service. Plenty to keep the children occupied too which is always appreciated. Will definitely be coming back.

Ludo Lounge has always been a cool place to meet friends for breakfast, lunch or dinner. It has a chilled atmosphere and it used to serve decent, reasonably priced bar food. The atmosphere is still good and the staff are friendly. Waiting times aren't too bad, even at peak periods. But. Over the last six to twelve months, the quality... More
