Had a warm atmosphere and the hum of a full restaurant had a good feel to it on a very cool day.Wait staff were excellent... read more

Popped in to Cafe Medici on Mother's Day for breakfast. We waited to be seated and tried to catch the attention of the front of house staff. She chose to ignore us so we left the establishment.

A last minute decision was a real winner. My wife and I turned up on a Friday night without a reservation and as luck would have it we grabbed the only remaining table. The host made us feel so welcome and the waiting staff carried this on. We started with ciabatta bread humus and olives. Very nice but maybe we... More

Called in here for a breakfast - the food and coffee are nice, which is all that really matters. However, the service is very slow and a few things are over looked (my long black for example was sort of sprayed all over my cup). But all in all, if you're not in a rush id recommend.

We enjoyed an evening meal at this establishment a few days ago. We did not book and whilst the restaurant was very quiet when we entered, it was not long before just about all of the tables were filled. Anyway, the service was very good and our food came quite quickly, our plates were well presented and the food was... More

We really enjoyed the food and the staff helpful and even offered to move us to a larger table out of a draft which was thoughtful and nice. The only problem was the acoustics. It is a large open space and the kitchen noises inhibited our ability to converse. We left as soon as the food we ordered was consumed.... More

Called in for a delicious hot coffee and muffin and found it perfect. The small garden seating out the back is lovely. Staff were helpful and extremely busy but things were ticking over nicely.

The staff were really great, very friendly and efficient. My fiance had Lamb and I had the Fish and Chips. The fish and batter was overcooked and despite me dipping the fish in the tartare sauce and giving all the pieces a good dousing in lemon juice, it failed to meet up with my expectations.
