Frenzied and uncomfortable venue, but great value food

Not the place to go for a quiet, relaxing dinner, but fantastic if you want somewhere quick before the show. The quality of the cooking is much higher than one would expect from a place where diners on plastic chairs around formica-topped tables have to compete for space with jostling crowds at... read more

Sitting down for dinner for two on Saturday night 27 July was strangely quiet. The reason was very soon to be apparent to us. The starters were pushed out the fridge and slapped out onto a plate and delivered with a grunt to the table. Before the awful starters were finished the mains were rushed over and served, perched on... More

This place serves a quality food, very well presented and full of flavour. It might be priced above the average expectations, but you get a wealth of taste out of your meal. Gets quite busy, especially between performances.

Booked a table here after watching Fuerza Bruta which incidentally was brilliant!! The food was excellent as we bought a selection of small dishes. 3 of us ate and not sure how many dishes we had but they were also excellent!! Cost about £24.00 each including a bottle of wine. I would say alcohol is expensive here. It is advisable... More

We intended to have a casual, long lunch - after ordering drinks, I had 2 starters, and my friends had a main course each. The portions were so small that after paying £75 we crossed the road and had a hearty meal at Marine Ices for half the cost, including delicious ice creams for dessert.

My partner and I had dinner in the cafe on the spur of the moment and were pleasantly surprised by such a good menu. The idea is to buy 4/5 small plates, like tapas. They were very original, hugely tasty and we will definitely go back there again. Service was also very good.
