The meals are good there and it is good to sit outside and watch the passing parade. But many of the deserts are made in house. have a small main and save space for deserts

We have been going to Cinema Cafe for years now and it never disappoints - the best restaurant on Oxford Street. You can always expect a good honest meal there - always full of flavour and fresh ingredients. The service is always spot on, attentive, quick and personable. Their soup of the day is always divine, changing frequently but always... More

I have eaten at the Cinema Cafe quite a few times and the food is always good and the service friendly and efficient. I took my partner (fussy foodie) there and even he said it was the best Wagua burger he has had. I'm a vegetarian and there is always something yummy for me too choose from which is not... More

Although we had visited this cafe some time ago, enjoyed it and gave it a high rating, last Sunday morning was a disaster. It was busy but after waiting for over 45 minutes for our breakfast with no apology, and with our family and their two toddlers, we called it a day. When we asked if our meal would be... More

We LOVE this place!!! Their oyster trio is to die for, and all day breakfast comes in handy on Sunday afternoons. Breakfast lunch or dinner we have yet to be disappointed!

Stopped in for dinner when neither of us could be bothered to cook. Both mains were excellent (as always) and dessert was fantastic! Service was good too tonight.

Went there for a Sunday Lunch and were quickly shown to a booth which was nice. Quickly served with water and alcoholic drinks. Orders taken quickly, however the service of the entrees and mains was a tad slow seeing the place was less than half full. We had the turkish pide breads for an entree which were nice. My wife...

We have been loyal customers of Cinema Cafe for many years and frequent this restaurant at least once a week. Over the years we have introduced many friends who have also become regulars and they have introduced to their friends who also have become locals. Staff are friendly and efficient. Excellent venue for birthday dinners/ celebrations as there is a... More

Very disappointing visit to cinema cafe. Our waiter (who we were told is the manager) was rude and quite clearly acted as if she would have rather been somewhere else. It took 15 mins for someone to take our order at which point we were asked without a smile "do you know what you want?". Our meal then took over... More

The cinema cafe is just next to one of our last great suburban cinemas. It is an atmospheric delight with movie music and posters. A little run down but definitely full of charm. There is a great menu with plenty of variety from inexpensive to restaurant quality. The staff were very attentive. We rarely go the the cinema on Oxford... More
