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 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

The occasion was a birth day so we started with superb cocktails which are quite pricey but worth it . We went with an Amazon local meal voucher so value was phenomenal for 3 courses and half bottle of wine. The set menu is good value with varied choices. It is well cooked food and ample portions. Staff are very... More
