A very good value meal, in charming canal-side location, for our first visit (09 August) was enhanced by the excellent service we received from our two Italian waiters.We came upon La Rotunda by accident and a very happy accident it was.We are already looking forward to our next visit. T & C

This place is pricey but the atmosphere and drinks are nice. The service is impeccable and the seating by the Canal, well what a setting, particularly as the sun sets and don't forget the lovely flowers and giant chess set! Worth a visit for. special occasion or just a splurge.

I had lunch here on a sunny Saturday afternoon. It was not at all crowded, although i can imagine this is very different in the evenings. Excellent service and the location is lovely. Sitting outside by the canal, with narrow boats passing by, you would not think that you are a 10 minute walk from busy Kings Cross Station. Definitely... More

Not the easiest of places to find - you have to walk though an office to get there. Can get really busy and difficult to get a table outside, but worth persevering as the food is decent the view over the canal basin is worth waiting for.

Great location. Nice staff and service. Completely spoilt by senseless noise and music volumes that make this a passable impression of a full on rave at 2am in full tilt. It was 6 pm.

Hi Chazzer, Thanks for the feedback. Really pleased you enjoyed your food but disappointed to hear that your visit was ruined by our music volume. I'm keeping an eye on this over the next few weeks to make sure it is always at an acceptable, appropriate level. Hope to see you again soon. Cedric Chervet Rotunda Manager More

We visited on a sunny Friday evening and the place was buzzing with after work drinkers which created a great atmosphere. The bar staff were plentiful and efficient so we didn't wait long for refreshment. We were seated outside next to the canal on a lovely terrace and the service and food was impeccable. We shared the shoulder of lamb... More

Tonight I went to the rotunda for a meal with friends however after having good food (pea soup & duck egg followed by the steak) it was let down by the very poor service I received at the end of the night. At the end of the night I went to settle my tab. The bill came to 33% more... More

Dear Scott, Firstly, I really appreciate you taking the time writing your feedback and highlighting how good your food was. You are very much correct in questioning an overcharge on your bill and I must apologise if the manager on duty came a cross over defensive. Our bar team are usually very efficient and deal with busy Fridays without issues... More

Rotunda, by the canal, is the perfect place to spend an afternoon. My office had a burst pipe so thought what better place to spend a few hours in the glorious sunshine! After a delicious bangers and mash, I decided to stick around for the afternoon working on the terrace and couldn't have chosen a better location for a mobile... More
