“The location is priceless, the food is ok”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2014

Full menu restaurant at the southeast corner of Hyde park. Have lunch overlooking the lake (serpentine), very civilized. Sandwiches, pizza, fish&chips - many food options. The food is not fantastic, but serviceable - not cheap either. But the location is special and it's a nice plan to sit and chat so as a restful stop in the park it really fulfills it's mission.

“Very nice place for food in the park”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2014

We (2 adults, 2 teenage boys) had lunch here in great weather. Very nice food. It is a clean, straightforward and well taken care of restaurant. We'd visit here again.

“Genius place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2014

I had a lunch break here & was so impressed I told my partner to come & try it. It's extraordinary to think this type of place is in a public park in the UK these days. It's run by Benugo who I tend to associate with doorstop sandwiches but they seem to have pulled out the stops here because the food is great. First visit - salt beef bagel & felafel wrap for my friend. Both really good. Second visit - 2 coq au vin at £12.50 each. OK not proper coq au vin - chicken breast flattened & wrapped in parma ham with a mushroom red wine gravy & good mashed potato. But it was really good - tasty, simple food. The olives & feta cheese they were selling in tubs at the till were also excellent.

You come in - get your table, order at the till & pay & they bring it over - so no fussing over tips etc. Lovely setting & they do alcohol if you fancy. I think it's great & a huge asset to Hyde Park.

“Lovely place to sit and enjoy the ambience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2014

Whilst walking through Hyde Park, decided to stop for lunch, fish & chips actually & a glass of white, really nice serving size, fish and delicate chips, enjoying the view & the swans! The price was up there, but worth it for the setting.
