“Definition of Average.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2012

Espresso keeps no secret of the fact, La Palma is its sister Restaurant.
These 2 Restaurants have a very different price point but I was expecting some of the same standards to exist between them given the fact they have the same management.

Unfortunately this wasn't the case.
The staff were friendly & outgoing but the menu was rather standard & uninspired!
Dessert was a real highlight but starters & main courses were bland and a little stodgy,

Overall I feel the prices could be reduced a bit more & a fresher approach taken to the menu.

“Friendly staff and great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2012

Great place to go for a special occasion or just to pop in for a casual meal or lunch. Food is always excellent and the staff could not be more helpful.

Takeaways are also great Espresso really caters for all occasions!

Keep up the good work!
