We keep going back to give his restaurant in Kew Village the benefit of the doubt.... I’m wondering whether we should now...

Food was good, but could have been so much better...

The pizza had been left on the side of the pass to go luke warm and the poached eggs on the fish cakes looked liked they had been cooked hours before - were solid in the middle and the fish cake whereas it was tasty was very heavily weighted on the potato rather than the fish.

Service, dismissive and slow... I want to like this place, I’ll try it again, but it might be the last time. It’s ‘meh, average/lower end of good’ but really could be very good!!

Food was great but the service was a little slow. All in all though a very nice late brunch. Good venue with a good ambience in a good location with an interesting menu.

This is a terrific restaurant. Great service and ambiance. I didn't love what I ordered, which was a Vietnamese Chicken salad. It was too tart. Like sucking on lemons. But I know other things on the menu are very nice.

Been twice in a fortnight as the buttermilk chicken burger and hibiscus margaritas are delicious. Service has improved as well. Worth a visit.

Food was lovely but the service was a little on the slow side. Drinks took ages to arrive, BUT, were excellent when they did. There was some confusion over our order and it was implied the mistake was ours, it wasn’t, BUT, again when things were rectified lunch was very tasty. All in all, lunch was good just a little disappointed in the service. That being said, I’d go back for meals and certainly pop in for a coffee.

Delicious food but tiny portions. Ordered ravioli as a main and paid £14 for 8 little pieces. The best deal is the cake, reasonably priced and amazing! Won't go again for dinner but maybe for coffee and cake

Excellent place to go to after a visit to Kew Gardens. Plenty of vegetarian choices. Service friendly without being effusive. Pizzas also on the menu

We have been to antipodea a few times and we very disappointed on this occasion. It was Christmas and there was not a single decoration in the place!!
Staff were, let’s say inexperienced it took four visits to our table from various staff members to understand an order of Vodka Martinis with a twist, and when it arrived there was no twist!!!
The whole experience was lack lustre. No reason for us to return!

Absolutely fantastic, could not recommend enough, go! We were a tricky table of 8 to celebrate a birthday. Despite being very busy and table not quite ready on arrival, the team made us feel very special and very, very well looked after. We had 3 children and they all really loved it, the team were especially accommodating to the rather demanding toddlers. The space is gorgeous and warm with a lovely fire and feels special, full of love. We left very grateful and have been recommending ever since.

Really enjoyable. Lovely place with a big and varied menu. We were sat very close to the front door which was a bit draughty but otherwise a very enjoyable lunch.

Was there the previous Sunday - 29th and decided to return yesterday, Sunday 5th for brunch. Hadn't realised the Kew Market was on so parking was a bit of a nightmare. That said, called the restaurant and said we would be 10 mins late. Arrived there and were seated right by the kitchen. Food and drink orders taken - nothing complex - Brunch special, chicken bagel and corn fritters and we pre-ordered 2 choc souffles. We ordered an Americano, iced latte and a hot choc. Drinks arrived right after food order! And the fuss the chicken was making over the choc souffles ... of course we know it's going to take 15 - 20 mins (not the first time we are ordering or eating a soufflé) - we are just getting the order in so that we don't have to order again. Food was ok - previous week was good. Then waited more than 20 mins for soufflés to arrive. They came and first issue - the menu says served with Jersey cream - we got Turkish candy floss and when asked the wait staff were told menu changed (from last Sunday) - clearly menus are outdated then - have to say something about false advertising. No offer of cream or anything offered. Second issue - one soufflé came out as a muffin - clearly overcooked. Clearly wasn't going to wait another 20 mins - it was removed from the bill. Very disappointing experience especially since Souffle is my daughter's favourite and she was down visiting from Uni. I just found the experience with the staff and the lack of care for us almost condescending - as if we had no idea of what a dish should or should not be.

Food is good here but service is not slick enough to want to make me want to make it a regular. I have been 3 times now, the menu appears to have got tighter and slightly more uninteresting, fewer veg options, more beef. I love the cauliflower dish but am begging the chefs -please add some pomegranate on it to bring a bit of colour to a bland looking, great tasting dish
