great cocktails, but food all fizz and no bottle

Venue is in a great location for Birmingham New Street so as far as a bite to eat before going home, this more than ticked the boxes. We arrived around 5.30 on Saturday night, restaurant fully booked but we got one of the bar tables. We were able to take advantage of the set menu, 3 courses for less than... More

Pretty cool venue. Not pretentious just nice and stylish. No entry fee. Only one floor. Toilet lighting too bright for my liking. Smoking area at the front is lovely with seating. Bar staff pretty attentive. Prices average to high. Most of all good music and the highlight being the saxophonist.

We have visited Chamelon on quite a few occasions and until this trip had only ever had their cocktails (usually on the 2 for 1 deal), which are great. This time we opted for the pre theatre menu, which runs from 4pm to 7pm (I think!). There were 3 choices in each section, and this was one of those rare... More

Came out for dinner for 2 people. Really good food options, even for vegetarian. Staff are very friendly but service was very slow. After we finished our meal, we were given dessert menus. We waited 20 mins to try order our dessert but no one came over so my partner had to go up to call the waitress. Starts and... More

I LOVE this place, amazing cocktails, they'll even make things for you that aren't on the menu, they are trained well and give good service, bar snacks come out fast and happy hour that goes on forever AND on fridays and saturdays - what more could you possibly want!

Fantastic food and fantastic service. What can I say, I've had afternoon tea I've had the steak I loved them both and the red wine selection is some of the best I've ever had. The surroundings are superb as are the clientèle. A fantastic establishment and always a must visit when in Birmingham.

I visited here twice on Saturday and had two different experiences. The first trip in the day time was awesome, we spent several hours been severed by Tom and he was friendly and made superb cocktails and we enjoyed our afternoon. (I am giving the score of excellent just from how good tom was) In the evening we went back... More
