Sitting down for dinner for two on Saturday night 27 July was strangely quiet. The reason was very soon to be apparent to us. The starters were pushed out the fridge and slapped out onto a plate and delivered with a grunt to the table. Before the awful starters were finished the mains were rushed over and served, perched on... More

Not the place to go for a quiet, relaxing dinner, but fantastic if you want somewhere quick before the show. The quality of the cooking is much higher than one would expect from a place where diners on plastic chairs around formica-topped tables have to compete for space with jostling crowds at the bar.

This place serves a quality food, very well presented and full of flavour. It might be priced above the average expectations, but you get a wealth of taste out of your meal. Gets quite busy, especially between performances.

My partner and I had dinner in the cafe on the spur of the moment and were pleasantly surprised by such a good menu. The idea is to buy 4/5 small plates, like tapas. They were very original, hugely tasty and we will definitely go back there again. Service was also very good.
