Food was very poor. Lamb was swimming in a pool of grease, seafood pasta dish wasn't fresh - frozen squid and seemingly a tinned sauce. Quite pricey too, for food which was almost inedible.

We got the sense that Papillon is aspiring to be a posh restaurant, offering fine food and service. However, the food is ok, nothing special, and the service left a little to be desired. The head waiter/ maitre'D whilst not rude, wasn't particularly helpful or friendly either. Pollo parmigiana tasted nice, but looked a little underdone, so I had to... More

Went for a birthday meal, admittedly a while ago now, but won't be rushing back. Food was ok, not much choice for children. Was given the wrong bill.

Decided to try this restaurant on recommendation, was not disappointed. Food was very fresh and the mascarpone lemon cheesecake was light and tangy. Will definitely visit again as atmosphere was good and service friendly.

It was to celebrate my sister's birthday, so there was quite a number of us at the table, also the restaurant was quite full. The waiters were friendly but the service was very poor: we had to wait nearly 20-25 minutes for our starters and again for the main courses. Sadly, the stadard of the cuisine was tasteless. Truly disappointing... More

We often pop here midweek for an early dinner after work. Niño and staff very friendly. Will cook anything off the menu if you ask. Had lovely mussels there tonight and my boyfriend fancied a chicken Kiev which they made for him. Love the zucchini. Always offers us a complimentary drink at the end of the meal. Don't understand some... More

After walking past papillon several times, a group of us decided to try out this restaurant. First of all the waiters seemed unprofessional and unable to speak some English and those who could speak English had their tongue twisted several of times. Secondly the food! Took ages to come to the table and we do not need 3 waiters serving... More
