“Sunday Lunch excellent value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2014

Such a wonderful day went to Beautiful South, had the three course lunch, excellent value, no washing up for me, I came home and relaxed in the garden. Staff helpful windows were open, it was delightfully cool on such a hot day. Definitely be paying another visit.

“What a shame”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2014

I have eaten here three times- as a couple, and twice in parties of 6 adults. Always disappointed with the food but especially the service. The senior staff possibly the owners have been rude/ sarcastic and unfriendly. I am local to this place so it is a shame to walk past it all the time to eat elsewhere . The food is generally average but it is the service that always lets them down.

“Great to go back”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2014

We went back to the Beautiful South on Easter Sunday with the folks after moving out of the area few years ago.There was a good atmosphere when we arrived. We did have to wait awhile before we were seen to. During the meal the service was a bit like faulty towers as we had to keep asking for simple things like Butter, Cutlery, Drinks and a couple of other things that the staff kept forgetting. They did seem a little understaffed that day as there were only 3 people including the Boss in the restaurant.
Having said this, the food was excellent throughout all three courses for all four of us. The food was that good we just laughed off the "service".
Would we go back? OH YES, it WAS that GOOD

“Lovely food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2014

This is a nice little restaurant in Enfield. I've been to Beautiful South five or six times now, and every time it has been superb. The restaurant has a nice informal atmosphere and the staff are very knowledgeable and attentive.Best of all is the food There's a great selection of dishes on the menu, from classics like burger and chips to fresh meat and seafood dishes.Everything is always cooked to perfection and very nicely presented on the plates.A little let down for me is that on not so busy days music is so low that you have to whisper if you don't want to be heard by everyone else and have the feeling that you may disrupt their meal. Overall will really recommend it.

“Average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2014

Had the Sunday Lunch Menu £17.90 & chose Chargrilled Haloumi cheese with red onion & vine tomato Aberdeen Angus Roast Beef with Yorkshire pudding & horseradish then Cheesecake . Roast beef meat was excellent but overall eating the three courses would say food is average , have just enjoyed similar meals elsewhere a lot more
A good e.g. would be my wife had Profiteroles which usually are yummy but these just lacked taste
Was in a party of 13 for a 50th birthday party service was OK one waiter’s lack of English did not help was also served by a lady who was going through the motions when taking orders, not that interested very little interaction not rushing to go back
