Booked dinner for Tuesday evening for the family. Staff were very attentive and the food was excellent! Drinks flowed and we had a fabulous evening. Music in the background played till late and they moved the tables aside so we could dance. Thanks Guys!

A couples night out. It was a really good experience and pleasant staff. Slightly expensive and a quite cramped at times with waiters whacking into your chair as they go past. At the end of night, music was played and people could get up and dance. This was a great idea and saved us moving elsewhere.

Staff attentive, food good, most enjoyable. Only very slight complaint was that the piped music was good but a little loud at times.

We went there in a large group for an early evening meal on a hot weekend. It was very busy but the service is good. For those people in a hurry this restaurant serves excellent fresh food in a typical Mediterranean laid back style atmosphere. You are not rushed out of the door for them to use your table for...

After making our order the starters came after 45mins. With an apology saying they had a few take away orders to attend to. The ribs were very rubbery and were not finished. The linguine order came in wrong. When told about the dish he said he would tell the chef but was left on the table. We waited for a... More

Enjoyed a lovely meal here again last week. Service excellent and food very good. Really enjoy the Scampi Provençal, yum yum. My partner enjoyed the Penne Sophia.

Had a lovely lunch - there were 10 of us and we fitted round the circular table which was great. The food was good - lots of choice, and the service was brilliant, so all in all a great time.

It had been a couple of years since I last visited Papillon. Suffice to say it won't see me again. How a restaurant can run out of a dish that was there on the specials blackboard when we arrived (when it was still pretty empty) and still there when we left a couple of hours later is beyond me. Yet... More
