We ate here practically every morning during our stay at The Grand hotel right next door. The coffee is tasty and if you get a large you get unlimited refills (a welcome reprieve from the usual small coffees served in Europe). The food is good too but don't expect a home run out of every dish. We like the fish... More

The only good thing thing I can say is the staff were very sweet and kind although their English language skills weren't very good 😬 I ordered a simple grilled chicken burger and it was hot on one side and fridge cold on the other 😖 I of course sent it back and another 1 came very chewy and still...

I visited with my 11 year old daughter on a Sunday at lunchtime. We were greeted by a friendly waiter who promptly took us to a table at the window. My daughter was delighted as she could watch all the comings and goings around Trafalgar Square. I had the Cajun chicken skewers and my daughter had a hot dog. She... More

Our hotel was located just around the corner from Garfunkel's, so we tried them for breakfast when we arrived in London. We found the food to be very good and very reasonably priced. The service was good as well. We ended up going there pretty much every morning. My husband had their omelet while I had the bacon and egg... More

My daughter met me for lunch and I took her here. We managed to get seated but that was about it really. We walked out after 20 minutes of waiting for someone to take our order. We went to McDonald's instead. Bearing in mind that this restaurant is in the middle of loads of offices, it needsto understand the relevance... More

We got here late at night and they were still serving food at 10.30pm. The place was busy but not crowded and the waiter was very friendly. We ordered the food, which came quick (under 10 minutes) and the serving sizes were huge and worth the money. I ordered the Ham and Eggs and my girlfriend ordered the Club Sandwich,... More

We were staying on Northumberland Avenue so wanted to eat locally and we were not disappointed. We started with a share platter for entree and then moved into separate mains, the helpings very overly generous and of a great standard. We could not fit in dessert but couldn't resist so we indulged and enjoyed it too. The price is reasonable... More
