enjoyed the food but can be noisy in the evenings, good selection at Bar, went with a fussy eater but they were really helpful and even offered to cook something of the menu if there was something she fancied

We went here for breakfast the other day and its very impressive inside. It has a real hidden gem feel and it is place usually found in london. Unfortunately it couldnt do the basics. We had to wait for the menus to be printed, there was no english tea (though we were surrounded by shops, just nip and get some)and... More

Been many times over the last 7 years. Always excellent food with the menu changing frequently. Staff couldn't be more pleasant, professional or obliging. The restaurant itself is also a visual feast. I'd describe it as luxurious in an artistic, quirky and totally unique way. It's fine dining done a little differently but so well!

We were booked in for a birthday tea at 2:30 today. No food arrived until gone 3:30. even though we asked when we would be served. The food was ok, but I would never go there again. We were in a downstairs room so felt very forgotten. We were eventually given a free glass of champagne each to make up... More

Lovely meal, unusual decor and very friendly staff - just loved the theme of the restaurant. Reasonably priced menu and presentation of food was outstanding. A must visit when in Southend!

We visited on a hot Friday night so the restaurant was quiet. The interior is quirky and well done. We chose a mixture of "specials" and main menu courses. All the food was beautifully presented and tasted great. Real care seems to have been taken when creating the menu to fit in with the Southend on sea vibe as well... More

Took my husband to Bacchus last night for his birthday. We've been twice before (see previous review) and very much enjoyed our visits, this one was no exception. My husband had the mini burgers to start with, I had the king prawns (in breadcrumbs deep fried) with seared king scallops, this was exceptional. For mains we had beef wellington and... More

Booked months ago by a friend for afternoon tea to start off her Hen Night, she was quite surprised on the day to be asked if she could change the time albeit only by 15 mins. Once everyone had arrived we received very poor service. The sandwiches had to be asked for twice and some still had partial crusts on.... More
