“Average italian at HIX T5”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

We tried out Tratts when we stayed at the Holiday inn Express T5. Two families of 9 in total on our way to Morocco in March. A little sceptical as we where the first one to be seated - and the first impresion was a cold and not inviting atmosphere. But the staff was friendly and service oriented and did everything to make our dinner as comfortable as possible. A regular menu with antipasti, pasta, risotto, meat and pizza in a selection you expect to find at such a place - but nothing more. We had garlic breads and olives as entres - and the olives were realy delicious! As mains we had everything from Risotto de Pollo to grilled lamb. The smallest kids had the classic spagetti bolognese and a favourite tomato soup (they loved the soup!). Wine menue was very limited, but they had their Montepulciano and a few Italian beers on the list. When we payed the bill (about £120) the restaurant was packed with people - always a good sign. An average Italian experience at an airpot hotel at Heathrow.

“Good food but small portions and expensive”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

Ate here when staying at the attached Holiday Inn Express. Very stylish and modern interior. Menu is rather wierd with strange mix of colours and boxes. Choices are limmited to a Pizza Express sort of menu. Starters are rather small and expensive for what your get. Main course salads come in 2 sizes and we have 1 in each size. My spinach and chicken salad was very tasty but the pieces of chicken were tiny and come on guys the crutons in it were obviously right out of a packet and tiny. Was tasty but expensive for the size. Partners Chicken Caesar Salad looked huge but had the same coments tiny amount of chicken and very small croutons. Rather expensive for what you get. Service was rather lack luster and not really anything special

“Average italian fare”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

Visited Tratts while staying at the HI Express, service was speedy, food was OK, it's very similar to some of the Italian chain restaurants like Pizza Express and Prezzo's. the starters were small, the salads were good.

“Okay Restaurant...”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

Food was okay; not good... They do not do room service to the Holiday Inn Express, Slough and do not charge to the room unless credit card was swiped by front desk (at the time of checking in)...

“A good option for HIX T5 guests”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

What a relief to discover that the restaurant attached to the Holiday Inn Express Heathrow T5 serves up some good dishes at a reasonable price. Since this hotel is a 15-minute bus ride from Heathrow T5 and there is nothing much in the surrounding area, i was hostage to this place while staying several nights on business. The style is Italian and over the course of several meals i tried the main dishes. All were of good quality. The ATM salad was particularly enjoyable. They also serve pizza, which looked pedestrian. Service was good and morale and training amongst the servers appeared to be high. The only deficiency was the rather noisy and sterile room.
