Excellent salad with salmon pieces, and a nice dressing. Friendly service, nicely spaced tables and a view of the small river through the window. No negative comments at all.

5 of us ate here yesterday afternoon before the theatre, and really enjoyed it! The building is beautiful and looks over the river. Our waitress was really friendly and had an amazing memory - we were impressed! Food was all great - mains and desserts, we will definitely be back. Was better than we were all expecting, as originally came... More

The service was absolutely abominable! Waited one hour for our meal. Staff not phased about it at all. Took it all in their stride. Was put in a table with a door behind us, all of a sudden a man opened the door to start varnishing it ! Not very clean inside the restaurant.

My friends and I ordered a Pizza Express through a lovely delivery service known as Deliveroo. We ordered Pollo Pesto and specified NO CHICKEN, due to my friend being a vegetarian. Our first attempt didn't go well and the pollo pesto had chicken in it. We phone pizza express to sort it out and then sent the order once more.... More

We ate here on Boxing Day while staying nearby. The restaurant was only about half full but the service was so slow. The food took a while to arrive too. The melanzane parmigiana dish wasn't great. It was bland & looked like someone had poured a tin of tomato soup over it. The bill also seemed expensive for what we... More

The entrance is tucked away, but the restaurant itself is comfortable with a nice atmosphere. service was good and the staff very pleasant. The food was ok but the extras soon add up and make a couple of piazza a bit expensive. A nice evening out though ! 8/10

Cam here for a pre pantomine meal, arrived at 5.30 giving an hour and a half to eat before the performance. Ordered pretty much as soon as we sat down to ensure we got our food in time. Starter came out after roughly 10 minutes. Then waitress took the empty plate and we may aswell have been invisible. It got... More

Group of 10 arrived at 430pm for a meal prior to going for a 7pm show at the Marlow. Eventually got out of the place at 640pm after starters and main courses only. Waited ages before even giving them a drinks order, then another eternity before the starters arrived (and they didnt even turn up at the same time), then... More
