The food was well presented and atmosphere relaxed and enjoyable. Price was higher than other restaurants in the area, but you get what you pay for. Staff were friendly and attentive.

I love the setting, makes you feel relaxed and at ease. You can watch the sun set whilst sipping on a cocktail. Had a very nice waiter.

Overall the restaurant was fantastic from every aspect. The food, service and ambiance were all great as usual and management was there to make sure that everybody was looked after. The décor is stylishly present but not overpowering and adds to the restaurants atmosphere. Signage to the restaurant and hotel is great, Normally its a problem finding restaurants in shopping...

We have visited a few times and had ok food and an ok evening. After reading such positive reviews here and on zomato we decided to try again. Unfortunately the experience was, once again, very average. The service was good, and the view and atmosphere are really lovely, I just wish the food matched up. Each course was as underwhelming...

We enjoyed a wonderful dinner for my boyfriend's birthday at Bice Restaurant. The meals were well prepared and we were pleasantly surprised when we saw our bill. It truly offers value for money in an upmarket setting with great views. One of the best in Hyde Park.

This is a trendy restaurant in the Southern Sun, Hyde Park hotel. Food is good, service is good and the ambience is good. There is a bar that pumps out funky beats as the night goes on, so makes for an obvious after-dinner hangout place.
