Ok, so the the Electric bar has great views from its elevated position on the fifth floor. Nice to enjoy a cocktail as you take in the views. Head through the bar to the restaurant and yes, at certain tables you have a good view of the Cathedral or across the Brayford Pool. What lets both down is atmosphere. The... More

This bar & restaurant is on the 5th floor of the Double Tree Hotel, you can access it from a glass lift from the ground floor. It has fabulous views across the water front. It has a vibrant 'electric' atmosphere in the evening and can be relaxing in an afternoon, sitting on the balcony enjoy a nice long cocktail. Don't... More

Four of us had the fixed price 3 course lunch menu. Starters were good but 3 mains were luke warm (free coffee offered) desserts best part of meal. However, the overriding feeling was how small the portions were - and that on a £19 menu! Service acceptable but not professional.

We have visited this restaurant on a number of occasions for both lunch and evening meals and have recommended it to others. Therefore, the obvious choice to us for our Easter Sunday Roast, whilst visiting our daughter, was here and we booked in advance. What a disappointment!

Heard good things from our friends about the "taste of" evenings so decided to visit for the French evening as we are fans of the restaurant. Amazing food and service with a smile as usual and the French themed music topped it off. Will be back to taste the new menu as recommended by Our waitress.

Expensive- staff is what makes it. Wine overcharged. Food a average and choice minimal. Could be so much better.
