Problems: - starters served 10 mins apart - Bellini made with peach schnapps, not peach juice - anaemic overcooked asparagus in £6.50 starter - frozen chunky chips, not French fries On the plus side, the waiter had a sense of humour and openly admitted the kitchen service was terrible - until we asked for a discount. Nando's serve better meals,... More

We had been eating pub food for days, and decided to try something a bit different. Romance was just a short walk from our hotel and it was a great choice. It doesn't look like much when you first walk in, but it's clean and nicely appointed in the dining room. Service was prompt and attentive, and the food was... More

All the food we ordered was really good! The lamb cutlets are amazing! Only thing that was wrong was my gf got a cosmopolitian and was SUPER strong! Other than that - AMAZING FOOD :)

The menu was just right – we were not overwhelmed with choice which to me is a good thing. Mediterranean staples, a bit of Greek, a bit of Italian. Perfect for a casual lunch with friends in a relaxed atmosphere away from the hustle & bustle (this was a Saturday, I expect it gets quite busy during the week). The... More

My colleagues and I who work from our London office once a week always used to go to Romance for lunch and were truly disappointed when it closed. On passing today we noticed that it was open so we popped in. The food is great and is good. Maria, the lovely waitress who has worked there for years is always... More

We are staying next door at the Pullman and found this great bistro around the corner from our hotel. Great food and service for a reasonable price. Not sure why the previous reviews said they were closed?

There is a sign on the window that the business has been closed due to non-payment of rent. With the fairly good reviews, this is disappointing.

We went on 27 April, it was closed at a time it said it was open and there was a Court Order showing in the window saying it had been repossessed. Really disappointed as previous reviews rated it highly and it had flat access.

I've been to Romance twice when visiting London. Once for an evening meal and once for lunch. The food is absolutely amazing, the staff are lovely and I cannot recommend this place enough. The food is well presented and a complete taste sensation. I would eat there every day if I could! For the evening meal I had prawns to... More

I was introduced to this restaurant by a business acquaintance previously and as my husband and I were staying in Bloomsbury for the weekend recently we took a stroll up to Romance, near Euston station. The chilli prawns starter and crab spaghetti mains are the best I think I have ever had. This is an unusual location for such a... More
