Met with some friends for a catch up and lunch, perfect if that is what you are looking for as two hours in and we still had not ordered desert. Which is no problem if you have the time but I wouldnt recommend this restaurant if you are in a hurry. The restaurant was not busy while we were there 40 people maybe, but there is outside seating which was busy. The food was good, with a varied menu, the staff were very pleasent. Great view looking out over the park and river. There is parking for a few places just outside the restaurant, but plenty of parking just down the road.

We ate here through the Groupon deal for £18 which included nibbles, 2 starters and 2 main courses. We had Selection of deli breads with balsamic and olive oil dressing & Oven roasted garlic bread with extra virgin olive oil for nibbles, Crispy beef, oriental vegetables, sesame seed dressing and soy sauce for starters, Tandoori marinated chicken supreme with pesto fettuccini & Salmon fillet with potato and vegetables for mains and they were all very nice! We were too full to try the desserts. The food was excellent but the restaurant wasn't very busy and it was a little cold but this was a very cold Feburary night so I think its probably buzzing in spring & summer. We would definitely visit again!

We've been here a couple of times on Groupon, which represented great value. Food was good and consistent on both occasions and everyone in our party enjoyed it. I would definitely recommend the home cooked chips, they're lovely!

The staff were a little young and inexperienced but tried hard. I feel the place lacked the presence of a manager or someone in charge, but this did not spoil our experience. The atmosphere was pretty good once the place filled up.

If we are in Stratford in the evening, we would probably visit again.

We had a lovely time here, with really tasty food which was well presented-try the coffee marinated pork tenderloin-amazing! The staff were really friendly and made us feel very welcome. It's on the opposite side of the river to the theatre, so doesn't get all the tourist trade that some of the other (inferior?) restaurants get on the other side. The only gripe, which led to a 4 rather than 5 rating, is the rather long wait for the food. Maybe a one-off, don't know, but the food was worth waiting for.
