“Deluxe hamburger”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

There were three in our party and we arrived without a booking. Although they were full the manageress set up a table to accommodate us. Two of our party had dishes from the menu which they enjoyed and I requested a hamburger which was delicious.

“Best salmon I have ever had!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

My husband and I had lunch at Reuben's in March. The service was personal and probably the best we have ever received. I had the salmon main and my husband had the liver. My husband was not blown away by his food, however he did say it was tasty. My salmon was to die for, aesthetically pleasing and cooked to perfection. We have heard from many friends that Reuben's can get very busy and the service can slack off when it does so however we experienced the opposite and we will definitely return for more.

“Some of the best food ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013 via mobile

I don't know if I was just very hungry but last night's dinner was something very special! Both our starters was perfect winter food, I had the chicken livers, my spouse had the mushroom soup. Halfway through the dish we swapped, we simply had to taste both. I had the pork belly as a main course, absolutely devine. The best was saved for last, my desert. I had the malva pudding, you simply have to try it, words can not decribe it. My wife ordered the chocolate torte and that was too much chocolate and she would not recommend it. Only one negative, the wine is too expensive!!
