Do not understand high trip advisor rating. Thought meal was costly for very average food & poor choice for vegetarians.

Reviewed February 3, 2013 via mobile

We thought the food was nothing exciting, but it was a pleasant little restaurant. The staff where very pleasant and efficient but not as good as the trip adviser rating

“Best place we've been in a while!!”
Reviewed February 1, 2013 via mobile

Portions are more than generous and good value for money,staff are efficient and friendly.Food was excellent.My husband thought it was slightly dingy inside and said the men's toilets could be better but we'd return on the strength of the food and service!

“Great value, friendly staff and delicious cocktails”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

Kafeneon (previously Cafe Neon) is a lovely place, which looks small but has a big area downstairs too.
On occasion I have had to send back my wedges as they weren't cooked, but this was rectified immediately and I was apologised to.
The set menu is amazing value, and really tasty! They have a selection of desserts but normally I am too full from the big portions to fit one in, as much as I'd love to. Cocktails are lovely, and not badly priced.
I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys budget food, with big portions and a warm welcoming atmosphere.

“Good home made food”
Reviewed January 20, 2013

I visited this place for lunch.
The décor and atmosphere is very nice and relaxing. For starter we ordered Hummus dip and cheese on toast. The portions are so big that they can easily serve as mains. Both were nice.
For main we had Cajun chicken and rustic Italian salad. The salad was really nice. The chicken could have used some sauce, although it was really nice too. Again big portions for main.
I'll recommend this place if you want to try nice home made food in massive portions.
