This is the second time that I have eaten here in the last few months. The place really ticks all my boxes; It's in a good location, the food is great, the service is friendly and warm and the prices are reasonable. The place itself is small, resembling more of a European cafe than a restaurant in terms of the... More

I enjoyed the food - soup and sandwich combo. Good house red wine, Furstenberg - all reasonably priced. Great service. Read some negative comments about staff singing - music was great, can fully understand why they were singing. Really nice people - happy - great fun. My wife's been here before, she took me to it on Saturday around 4ish.... More

I love this wee cafe. The food, especially the breakfast/brunch is tasty and always perfectly cooked. Excellent coffee also. The warm and friendly service and quirky furniture and theme set this place apart. It's the kind of place that in the States would have hipsters queuing for Brunch at the weekends.

This place seems to have got a lot more expensive than it was before. I went on a Sunday afternoon and the food was excellent and helped cure my hangover. What seriously never helped tho was the chefs constant singing. I swear it spoiled my whole experience. There I was paper in hand already for a nice read and a... More

This place is great, small but the food and music are fantastic. It has character. I had the full breakfast, poached eggs, bacon, mushroom, toast and beans. It was cooked to perfection! Definitely recommend this place.

Our visit to Trans Europe was great from the word Go! The staff were very friendly and helpful. Service was spot on! Food was absolutely great. The croquette for starter and the seabass for mains were the highlights of the evening. The meal also finished exquisitely with a perfectly balanced desert (sticky toffee pudding YUM!). Two thumbs up for this... More

I went there recently for an evening meal. The food was lovely - I had the squid stew. The big downside was the cafe was boiling hot - thank goodness the door was eventualy opened - it spoiled what was a good night
