Lovely food! Great place the food was reasonable priced and tasted good. We only had a drink and a cake but it tasted good and had beautiful views out the windows.

It didn't feel like a restaurant, more like a cafeteria but with very good food. From a balcony one can watch the food being prepared, and the staff exude hospitality. One sits at trestle tables on wooden benches, which sounds uncomfortable but is reminiscent of dinners in college and encourages conversation among strangers. It's not pricey either, by UK standards.

After all the walking and climbing up steps the large cafe provides good sustenance. Ate there twice, breakfast was good crusty toast and preserves and coffee and lunch was one of their huge pasties with trimmings. Food is very filling and affordable but nothing unusual. I guess my expectations were higher because Eden is a world class visitor centre. Having... More

Waited about 25 minutes minutes for the food nothing. I was with my mum who is 7 months pregnant and she was getting hungry, after half an... More

The food we saw and had looked good but excessively expensive. I was also concerned at the level if wastage as food that was not sold by the end of the afternoon appeared in the main to be left out to go off. Do they not have a fridge. Maybe they had over catered that day but I felt uncomfortable... More

I think the food quality is good but the prices almost match those of London. I had a bowl of soup for £5.5 and two scones with cream and jam each for £3. All in all, it is a nice place and the service is polite.

Had a nice meal and glad that the bakery is now a restaurant. However, when I asked for a gluten free pie it was going to be a wait of 40 minutes. I made do and had a normal one. The pie was hot but the gravy and vegetables were lukewarm. Couldn't be bothered to complain because we were hungry... More

good cafes at all stops along the way and at a reasonable price as this is needed as there is a lot of walking in heat in the domes and a pleasent place to sit and have a drink is welcom

Crowded eating with people queuing to find places, food was much better than I'd expected for such a rushed place, but the tables were horrid and sticky, not enough staff to keep up with the cleaning before people sat down

After a couple of hours wandering around the Eden Project we went into the café for lunch. The place is enormous and was packed with visitors, so we weren't expecting too much in the line of great food - but we were wrong. We all had something different (pizza, salad, pasty, quiche ) and we all commented on the taste... More
