Outstanding restaurant

After calling in on the off chance of a table for two on a Friday evening, we weren't disappointed at all. Anna was our host for the evening and gave exemplary service. Pre-dinner cocktails were delightful. Food was visually appealing and delicious. The menu wasn't crammed with various dishes, but... read more

Decent enough food which was well presented but the whole experience was rather spoiled by the stream of people using the internal spiral stairs to the cocktail bar above. I must have seen the same group go up and down those stairs 10 times.

We have had dinner at Café Vin Cinq on many occasions and have never had a bad experience. The food is wonderful, and the cocktail bar is a great place to start/end the evening. The only time I have been disappointed was when I had lunch there. The menu was very different and the food not up to scratch. I... More

Our first time and an immediate WOW. So very French - all it needed was an accordian playing quietly and it could be Paris.Staff pleasant, helpful and attentive and the food excellent.Four of us enjoyed the experience and vowed to go again. Our visit was prompted by a Tastecard offer which did reduce the price we paid for the food... More

Interesting place. A strong French theme on floors one and two. Slightly odd cocktail bar on floor three meaning people in for drinks constantly trouping past diners. Food was nice but portions were enormous and not what I'd expect of French cuisine.
