After reading good things we decided to head to Soul Cafe. We ordered mains and a bottle of wine. After bringing our wine, and a tasting, we started our main course. Half way into our diner we got asked by 3 members of the staff...More

The Soul Café was full when I arrived for dinner just before 8pm. I could have waited, or possibly even eaten at the bar, but went to another restaurant nearby. On the way back I looked in again, and this time the place was almost...More

The street is packed with restaurants so you know that you are in a tourist trap; that said the service was good and the price absolutely typical. I note the report objecting to inclusive service, but personally I found it easier that way, and it...More

Great food, great people watching, great service. They weren't packed for a late lunch and my husband and I were able to just sit and relax for a couple hours-taking our time ordering and eating. Food was delicious, service was great. Can't ask for more.More
