Worth considering

This restaurant has a decent cross section of choice of normal fare with friendly service. The star of the night was the delicious omelets which made for a pleasant surprise from the normal range. Get a window seat as you get awesome views of Trafalgar Square.

To be fair we had 40 mins to eat so they said they will fit us in and indeed did. Now onto the food. Disappointed with the burger they served, I did not get the onion ring as advertised and the chips were not good but edible, we won't talk about the attempt at the salad, enough said
