You're kidding...right?

Called in for a light lunch mid week having not read any reviews and thought that this might be a 'themed' restaurant. Though quite what that theme might be escapes me, but imagine medieval squalor without any rustic charm. We didn't experience the roof garden as it was a particularly hot day... read more

Don't. Eat. Here. We waited over an hour for a basic fish dish. Once eaten the veg arrived. The poor 15 year old waiter was run off his feet. The family next to us waited 90 minutes for their daughter to receive her lasagne. Unbelievable. The toilets were appalling. When I told the elderly woman who I assume owned the... More

Slow service, dirty toilets & overcooked food. Spoke to some locals about this place, the majority put their head in their hands and said why did you go there, it's terrible!

Moulded bread, boring taste on the food. Even the pizza got too dry for our kids. Only positive is the location! Not worth the money!

The restaurant itself is set in an impressive old building with a rooftop terrace for eating however the service is poor. We got our food which was ok, nothing special and I had to leave my seat to ask for salt, a spoon and marnesan cheese for the pasta. Everything was slow and Ill prepared, wouldn't recommend.

We saw the roof garden and thought that looks very nice. But that was the only nice part of the deal. Rest was all bad and I wanted to walk out in the first 10 mins. I wish I had checked tripadvisor before I go in there.

We were in Victoria for the evening of Santa Maria Festa. This is probably one of the restaurants' busiest days so you would think they would be prepared.... Not the Four Seasons. We, like others were lured by the roof terrace. We managed to get a table eventually. The head waiter was running up and down the two steps in... More

Annoyed that I didn't follow my instincts. The outside décor looked quite jaded but we were lured by the roof terrace. It was only on the way out that we had a look around inside. In fairness the roof terrace is a nice place to sit although a little 'rustic'. We put the poor maintenance down to being the start... More
