Have passed this place endless times and not quite realised what it was, but having seen reviews on TripAdvisor I decided to give it a try a visited last weekend with my partner. On entering, the downstairs area was very busy, but was buzzing, like some private party. We had booked and the guy behind the bar asked for our... More

The food here is very good and they also have a great drinks selection! My only gripe though is their portions are a little on the small side...

There are many mixed reviews about Rodells and we knew we were taking a bit of a risk by taking friends along if any of the bad reviews came true. However we had been to Rodells before just over a year ago and had a very enjoyable night. Needless to say our worries were unfounded. The wonderful variety and quality... More

We randomly discovered this place when our local pub was closed for a refurb and couldn't be happier! The jerk chicken was amazing! The meat was so juicy and full of flavour and was accompanied by some great rice and peas...don't forget the pink sangria! To find out it also does tapas in the evening makes me more excited and...

Great food and something different to be offered for the local area. Reminds me of a restaurant in Sydney.

Rodells is the best place in town by far. The food is exceptional and the staff are amazing. I've been coming here for over a year now and I'm never disappointed! Highly recommended.

The fact that Mario, the owner of this terrible restaurant, describes himself on the Rodells website as "chef extraordinaire" is a reflection of how arrogant and deluded this man is. We visited the restaurant as a group of 12 on a Saturday night. We waited 45 minutes to be seated and then a further 30 minutes for our order to... More

We were visiting a friend in Watford and she suggested to go and eat at this place. She said that quite a few people had recommended it and she wanted to try it. And what a little gem this place turned out to be! I had the Asturian fabada, the duck & pork pot stickers and the Cuban piccadillo. My... More
