Went there on Friday 18th July. We wanted to have a meal before going to the theatre. We asked at the reception for a table and we were led in an empty restaurant to a far corner. Told we had to leave before 7.30, no problem. Menu and wine list placed on the table and the gentleman walked away. There... More

I had a terrific non alcoholic cocktail before getting a tasty well done rib eye steak. My wife had a juicy tasty burger which was up to her taste. the potion of food was big. The service was polite, accurate and... More

Me and my sister wanted to have a catch up without husbands and kids, so decided to go somewhere for dinner with a bit of nice live music on the background. Reviews of this place tend to say that food is very average, but entertainment is great. Funny, but that Friday night it was other way around. Man played piano... More

I have been to the Archduke so many times. Their menu is simple, mainly steaks / hamburgers and a few alternatives. Steaks are really good, and the selection of wines is excellent. Portions are huge and typically one main course (with the accompanying vegetables) is enough. Go there for a hearty dinner with some lovely live (mainly jazz) music.

We were visiting this restaurant with reservation booking and have received a very pleasant dining in this beautiful restaurant. I personally love the atmosphere with live piano performance, but when you sat on the top floor and next to a group booking table. The ambient noises surrounding the area is quite disturbed , but it didn't spoiled our appetite on... More

Having walked past the Archduke a few times and been tempted we finally found ourselves in the area again and decided to give it a go. The first surprise on getting a table and seeing the menu was that it was part of the black and blue chain which was a pleasing find as generally we have found them to... More

My wife and me have been dining at The Archduke both pre and post performances at the Festival Hall and National Theatre for over 30 years and in all that time can say that we have rarely been let down by either the food or the service. There is the added bonus of jazz being played most evenings with full... More

After my previous visit to The Archduke didn't go down too well from the rude waitress, we ended up getting a complimentary meal (we weren't after this, just giving them good honest feedback to get them to put things right). The staff and manager couldn't do enough for us, checking we were all okay and happy. I do feel this... More
