“Beauty over brains”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

Elegant restaurant with a relaxed but vibrant atmosphere. Not too expensive food but not incredibly great food either - distinctly average.

Would come here for drinks again for the view and overall vibe, great for a pre-date drink or drinks with a group - but definitely not dinner. Food feels very conveyor belt, though staff are very nice.

“Enjoyable night out”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

Attended with group of 15 friends to the bar and grill. First time here, nice venue, pleasant staff, little bit slow with the drinks orders. Food was really nice. Music was a little too loud and a bit like club music at times, more mellow music in the background would of suited better. I would return.

“Playeau Bar and Grill”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

Visited this establishment as part of a 50th Birthday Party. Venue location and atmosphere could not be faulted. Pre-meal drinks service was slow although there were a few cocktails the beers and soft drinks took just a long. Starters were ok but my main course (short spare beef rib) was extremely tasty. I did not have sweet. Service charge at 12.5% on two bottle of champagne was taken off and waitress appeared unhappy even though the main drinks bill was over £440 and meals bill was just over £400 which makes a service charge of over £100. The black waiter with the dread locks was very polite and attentive and we could not fault his service. Overall great atmosphere and I enjoyed my meal and evening and would return. Just quicken up the drinks service. :-)

“Great Views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

Great restaurant/bar. Personally I prefer eating in the bar area to the main restaurant - great atmosphere and prefer the seating. Food always fantastic and often you can get some great special offers.

“Brilliant team”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

The staff here are excellent - real team work and attention to detail. Love the Spanish sommelier - she was really good at explaining some of the choices and genuinely wanted me to have wine I'd enjoy without trying to get me to spend more than I wanted. I loved the barman who makes a great Negroni, and was clearly enthusiastic about it too.

The food was really good for a set menu. Clearly not their top drawer, but brilliant value nonetheless.

It was a great night. Thanks very much!
