“Typical chain.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

Anyone who has visited pizza express on more than one occasion is probably aware what to expect from the chain. Good food, good service not much of an atmosphere (dependent on when/with whom you go and average value for the food. The massive bonus that Newquay's Pizza express has in its favour is that if you can see by the window you get an amazing view of the sea which earns massive bonus points.

“Too cool for school”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2014

As the food is pretty much the same in every Pizza Express restaurant (very nice, thanks) - this review is about the service.

Our waiter was clearly trying to give us the impression that he was only working there because he had to, and was far too cool for that sort of job. Being vague and blase' to any queries and at one point, sliding a desert across the table (a'la wild west saloon)

Unable to fathom out how to enter a discount code, he came up with some twaddle about it not being valid (it was - and i recognised the fobbing off technical-mumbo-jumbo as i do it all the time in my job) - had i not needed to be somewhere else, i would have pressed the issue.

Having then realised his name was on the review card, he became a model employee, and couldn't be more attentive ... for the last 3 minutes we were there.

Food - excellent.
Views - excellent.
Cleanliness - Very good.
All but one staff - Very good

“Go only if you dont mind being ignored”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2014

We arrived at approx 7.45, there were three people in front of us who quite clearly had been waiting quite a long time to be seated, having looked into the dinning area there were plenty of empty tables and what appeared to plenty of staff, after waiting 10 minutes we decided to leave, leaving those in front of us still waiting and still not having been approached be a member of staff

“Great food shame about the service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2014

The restaurant is in a great location overlooking the sea and we visited early evening so quite quiet however the service was so slow.
The kids states came quick even though we ordered starters to we never saw them !!! The staff didn't really seem to know what they were doing.

The coffee machine went down so no kids hot chocolate to follow no apologies and no offer to take any money of the bill because of this.

I don't know if the service is always like this as visited when we were on holiday it may off been as we were paying with tesco vouchers?
