A amazing place right in the heart of London for a cozy posh type of dinner. Nice kind staff, children friendly and a nice walk around the area after the meal!

Really don't understand how this place could take 4+ stars. Have all those people who rate it with five starts ever eat anywhere else? I don't understand how could cook spoil salmon that way that it looks and tastes like an overcooked chicken and the griledl salmon is over-salted like a snack for beer. I have only one explanation: they... More

Widely lauded by most I asked as the cool down town place for a great Italian meal, I though it no better than average. Small portions and an unexciting menu, yes, Italian to a point, but doesn't seem to live up to its billing.... Great location next to the Golden Gate and the lucky cat statue for people watching and... More

It used to be the best Italian food. I still remember their outstanding carpaccio, pasta and tiramisu. This time was very disappointing - small portions and lack of flavor, staff wasn't nice.

Many-many years ago, when just started, Pantagruel stood out for quality of food. In today's Kiev this does not give any significant advantage, but neither service nor choice of meals in Pantagruel progress to offer new experience for a tourist. We had two types of tuna, roastbeef and ravioli. For drinks we took lemonade. Out of these I can recommend... More
