Passed this restaurant so many times and never ventured in, what a lovely surprise. Loved everything about it. It is deceptive from the outside because it looks so small, but I was wrong the decoration is lovely and cozy and it has a lovely outside area at the back of the restaurant. Excellent service, and loved the food, excellent local... More

I have been for lunch twice outside in the patio. They have a good ambiance and the sandwiches are very delicious. Also, I like there are waiters from other countries and if you are a languages lover like me, it is a good opportunity of talking with them in their mother languages.

This is a beautiful atmospheric room and garden area and you feel immediately relaxed when you enter. The staff are efficient and pleasant. But the food was very poor with quite an eclectic menu that wouldn't be everyone's choice. Definitely wouldn't go back despite loving the atmosphere.

We hadn't been to Café 163 for a little while. As it was a lovely day we sat in the garden. The service was very efficient, always is, and the food was amazing. We both chose a main dish from the Specials menu. The lamb chops came with puy lentils, which my partner is not keen on and asked for... More

We met here for a catch up. Food was good, the Moroccan cheese to start was delicious. One of our party is gluten free and although the menu was a little confusing (we were shown 3 different ones!), the staff were very accommodating and the kitchen did alter the dishes slightly. Very friendly staff and good food reasonably priced. Would... More

Decent place to eat, i went for breakfast with my husband and the staff were friendly and helpful and they chatted to us but nothing stood out in particular. The breakfast i thought was a little dear at roughly £10 each for an English breakfast and a drink in comparison to a small cafe, but i suppose you pay that... More

That's fantastic, sounds like we've got it running just as it should be, long may it continue. Always have to keep an eye on things though, don't what to get complacent. Thanks for letting us know, the feedback really helps to get a realistic view of the place, glad you like it so much. More

Went there last week for lunch with my children. Sat in the garden at the back. Beautiful out there. Can't really see it from the front of the restaurant. The staff were lovely. Portion sizes were big for my appetite, but my boys enjoyed everything. Very reasonable too. Would definitely recommend it especially on a nice sunny day. Loved the... More

The food is alright, but it should focus more on one kitchen so that the quality will come out more. My risotto could have been cooked a bit longer. I also came here with my colleage for breakfast the day before and the food was really good. I had poached eggs with salmon. So it feels a bit like hit... More

Thanks for your thoughts on the kitchen and the good review. I understand your point, although we have developed our somewhat diverse menu over the years to cater to our various customers' requirements; it makes for a very easy place to just drop into whatever the occasion, obviously this requires some extra skills in the kitchen which fortunately we have,...

Description
It���s hard to believe that Bar 163 has been in Egham since 1984. More than twenty years on, 163 looks and feels as fresh as ever and continues to attract a varied crowd of young and not so young, professionals and students alike. Originally a bar with food the menu has become so popular over the years that we can safely call Bar 163 a restaurant ��� the Mediterranean inspired dishes have a real taste of summer, exactly what you���ll be after if you find yourself lucky enough to nab a table in the relaxing secret garden. But despite the food the relaxed, lively bar vibe remains, making this Egham���s most well loved venue.
