Went in here for a quick drink at 6pm on a Friday. Wasn't expecting it at all but the staff manage to find us a seat and served us extremely quickly. The atmosphere was fantastic with lots of Christmas lights, would definitely recommend. Plus it's a very convenient location.

We visited for an early evening drink and snack and enjoyed the quirky setting and excellent wine. Although very crowded when we arrived - it was the week before Christmas! - we did find a table easily and enjoyed a pleasant hour or so sipping wine and nibbling cheese in a festive but not overpowering ambiance. It was much quieter... More

My wife and I visited this restaurant on our way to meet some friends at Southbank, it is conveniently located between Waterloo Station and Southbank. We were not expecting much as the restaurant is solidly located on the tourist trail. The food was great, I had a perfectly cooked tender fillet steak and my wife had a very nice hamburger.... More

I had a girly reunion evening planned on a Saturday night here. Firstly we booked the table for 6pm, but were not told that it was actually booked for 5.45, so we arrived late. Secondly we were then told we had to be out by 8.15. So much for a leisurely dinner then. Not to be deterred the night started... More

There isn't many restaurants to chose from in the immediate area, and this one has quite a nice location. Very convenient for the IMAX. However, we weren't impressed by the service or the food. The venue itself looks tired and worn. There was no music when we were there, so perhaps its a better choice for the evening.

We met friends at Waterloo and popped in for a drink with an intention to eat later. There is a nice buzz here and musicians played in the background. The food was good and an enjoyable night was had by all.....until the bill arrived. £270 for four.....a very big ouch. Too easy to get carried away with expensive drinks.

We were looking for a pre-theatre dinner and this was the only place without a long queue to get a table. Alarm bells should have sounded at that point! I would love to say something good but... From the start the service was confused and dismal. After the longest time the waitress brought a drink menu and then stood over... More

A good place to meet up for lunch after friends met at Waterloo. Booked the table a few days before as there were five of us, and we were upstairs in the front of a large glass window overlooking the fountains - absolutely beautiful. Excellent service, v.g. ambience, food excellent omelettes, haddock fishcakes, and good coffee with no hassling for... More

Have walked past this place many times and always assumed it would be average as it has so much passing trade near Waterloo and Southbank. But colleague and I had celebration lunch meal after great meeting and it was brilliant. Relaxed but buzzy atmosphere and really good steaks. Not crazy wasteful portion sizes either.
