I had several great meals in City Cafe whilst staying in the hotel. All were excellent and very reasonably priced. The haddock fish cakes were fabulous, as was the chicken supreme. I also loved the carafes of wine which are ideal for solo (yet thirsty!) travellers. The service is excellent (although some of the servers do struggle with their English)... More

we ate here using a travel zoo voucher,£35 for 2 people with a set menu including a carafe of house wine. Very good value for money and very good quality food. Portion sizes were just right. I ordered an extra glass of prosecco which set me back £7.50! But apart from that, the staff were really good and the restaurant... More

Coming back late from Wimbledon, we needed a non-pub food restaurant. Given our location at the Doubletree Westminster, we were severely limited by choices. So, we ended up eating here two nights in a row. Was it great? No. Was it acceptable? Yes! The first night two of our party only had salads. Not so good. However three of us... More

We had a lovely welcome and had a choice of table. We picked a... More

We decided to have food here for a family birthday and are not sorry we did. We had plans to go elsewhere in the area so this place was perfect + we got a 3 course menu offer for £17 per person. They will only allow 4 people in the party on this offer though so anymore and you may... More

We were welcomed at the door by a stuck up lady (dark haired and wearing glasses), which I believe was the supervisor. Awesome. Fortunately she did not mind about us for the rest of the evening. We were instead very looked after by a lovely waitress - I wish I remembered her name! (East European, with freckles) who then took... More

On our final night in London, we were exhausted so decided to have dinner in the City Cafe. What a great decision that turned out to be! I was so impressed with the food! I wanted to try the asparagus soup, but told our server that I was allergic to onions. She checked with the chef and told me both... More
