A lovely place to eat, drink and converse. Laid back, friendly with wicked tunes and an amazing menu.

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

Popped in here today for the first time for some lunch with a colleague. Had no idea what to expect or what type of food served but had often passed the restuarant at night and thought how welcoming it looked. I had a beautiful morrican lamb tagine, meat melted in mouth,was tender and nice big chunks of it too. The... More
