We regularly stop here, both for breakfast and dinner, and have occasionally had lunch as well. We have never been disappointed. The breakfasts, with their fresh juices are wonderful. The staff and service are lovely. Situated near the small flyover, it doesn't look special, but is well worth a diversion.

We went here for lunch the other day. It was pouring with rain and this was the nearest to a friend I was going to visit. It is situated in Bushey in a rather bland shopping parade. And the outside looks equally uninviting. You enter to a sea of people which I guess is the first indication of the popularity... More

I visited here with some family and friends for my sister's birthday and honestly could not fault it. The service was really good and the waitresses were very attentive. The food was amazing and the portions were so generous!! Would definitely recommend and visit again.

Visited last month with my daughter and niece. To be fair I wasn't expecting much for some reason, but as we wanted to eat outside this was the only option. My daughter had a steak which was absolutely perfect and her cousin had an assorted seafood dish which was superb and also brilliantly inexpensive. I settled for Eggs Benedict, which... More

Delicious meals of steak and also lasagne. We started with traditional prawn cocktail and mushroom & toasted stilton. Puds were Bakewell Tart and Bakewell Tart-flavoured ice cream. Most unusual. Service was very quick and very friendly. Very nice local restaurant .

Recommended by friends we have now been twice to this lovely little Italian bistro. OK it's sited in the unlovlier part of Watford High Street, but once inside you can forget the dodgier bars and nightclubs outside. The place switches from cafe during the day to restaurant from early evening. A great value fixed price menu is available until 7pm;... More

We have been to this resturant many times and have seen the staff replaced many times. As it becomes more popular the service has begun to suffer. After we ordered our meal my elderly mother decided she would like cheese with her jacket potato so I asked for some in a small bowl. You'd have thought I'd asked for another... More

Visited the Barracuda Restaurant in Watford. There was a special board and on it was veal topped with Parma Ham in a lemon sauce, served with carrots, broccoli and saute new potatoes in their skin. This was simply lovely followed by a homemade Tirasamu which was as light as feather, followed by a capacuino. There is a wide choice on... More

This was recommended to us by a local hotel owner. We had the minestrone soup to start. It was fresh and thick and tasted amazing. For the main course we had baked pasta with chicken. It was freshly made, hot and really really nice. The staff were friendly and because we ordered from the pre theatre menu, it wasn't expensive.... More
