“Portugese Piri Piri Chicken mmmmm”
Reviewed January 22, 2013

I have been here twice since it has changed ownership and have been impressed with the food and service on both occasions. We last visited on a Monday night and there were a few full tables. The waitress was lovely and attentive. We had the lamb koftas to start and traditional Portugese Piri Piri chicken which was authentic and tasty. The bill was reasonable for the amount we had. Overall, definately a place to revisit, with friendly staff, great music and lovely food. The only negative would be that the toilets need attention.

“Pizza and Staff”
Reviewed January 12, 2013

It has always been a favourite place of mine but they have recently started doing Pizza. IT IS THE BEST PIZZA IN THE WORLD - FANTASTIC!!!

All served with a friendly smile and great staff.

Would recommend the food, friendly candle lit atmosphere and staff to everyone who reads this.

Look forward to coming back soon. Matt - Sandbach

“disappointing”
Reviewed December 28, 2012

We visited before christmas in the evening for our work xmas do. We had been at christmas two years before and I had also been for meals with a friend earlier in the year and had always been very satisfied. The starters and main course were alright but not great, the desserts were awful and suspiciously simular to those found in local discount shop. As the meal was reasonably priced we could have overlooked this however the general dining experience was terrible. We were the only diners upstairs on a friday night (which said a lot!) however there were lots of noisy teenagers in and out of the smoking area. It appears that this restaurant is now more like a pub for the teens who were all having a great time.
The ladies toilets hand dryer was not working and we were handed a pile of serviettes when we asked about drying our hands. The young waitress was very polite and attentive, and to her credit tried to sort out the problems. Whoever was in charge was happy to keep sending the poor girl back with messages. In the end we gave up but will definately not be going back.

“Old favourite.”
Reviewed December 17, 2012

I've always loved Cafe Symphony in Sandbach and was interested to see what it was like under new ownership. We had a Groupon voucher but we could still choose from anything on the menu. The starters and mains were lovely although rather more vegetables and less salad would have been nice. I decided to have a dessert, what a mistake! Having been used to the delicious homemade desserts offered previously, I was very disappointed to get a slice of the cheapest supermarket gateau. This aside, the service was good, although the people on the next table got their main course before the starter, and the staff friendly. I'll definitely give it another go.

“Wet bums”
Reviewed December 7, 2012

On arrival,we were taken to our table on the busy first floor,the four of us sat down and immediately stood up with dropping wet bums!!.the waitress explained that sometimes the customers take them outside to the smoking area,and are sometimes left outside in the rain,chairs were replaced,two of us were lucky,two of us were not,damp and uncomfortable,not wanting to make anymore complaints,we agreed things could only get better, how wrong we were,the meals arrived,all very poor, steaks were in edible ,risotto undercooked and salty,chilli burger,tasting of nothing.Two of the part,one male and one female,went to the toilets,to find hand dryers not working,and no replacement towels!,it was at this moment we decided,enough was enough ,and made our comments known to the lovely staff,unfortunately the manager did not acknowledge our complaint,sending the poor waitress to apologise,needless to say,we will not be visiting this establishment again.
