We visited early on a Saturday evening. Due to the hard floors and Ceilings the music and noise just echoed and made normal conversation difficult. There were also a number of small children running around out of control of their parents. The food and service were just average and not good value. There were also only a few draft beers... More

Visited on a Wednesday evening with family. We didn't need to book as the restaurant was quite that evening. The staff were friendly and helpful without being intrusive. The portion sizes were large and we were able to share a single portion of nachos, which were lovely. The main courses were delicious and plentiful. We skipped dessert but the dessert... More

Second time to GCS Basildon - for my step son's 11th Birthday. We enjoyed lots of good food (generous portion sizes) and felt that the service was the best we have seen in the service industry for a long time, from the welcome at the door, being shown to our seats to the waitress who was friendly and attentive throughout...

First time review for me! But the service and hospitality, plus the amazing pancakes and waffles we had today for breakfast was fantastic. Without fail everyone is full of warmth and we felt incredibly welcome. We have been twice, and my 8 year old is a tough critic - but she absolutely loves the milkshakes - fantastic!! Maria really made... More

My wife, 2 kids and I went here for lunch on a Saturday afternoon. Kids were given crayons and a balloon to go with the kids menu. The place is New York themed and decorated to resemble Grand Central Station. It makes for a great atmosphere. The food is great, plentiful, tasty and reasonably priced. They do bottomless soft drinks... More
