    Limited menu choice. Food quality fair - salmon rather dry. Chips good! Service perfunctory. Wine choice good and reasonably priced.

    we searched Christchurch for somewhere to eat - found Pizza Express. Warm welcome- a good table - and super service from Annab. The Pizza Giardinara was superb.

    The service was very slow. Main courses arrived without some of the ordered components. Deserts were also incorrect and had to be returned. Overall, we were meeting with friends and we enjoyed lunch but service was not adequate.

    Not enough staff to service the covers in the restaurant. Staff were very polite and food was fine. In a town of so many students, surely there can be enough staff ?

    The staff were welcoming and helpful, even though we arrived with an extra diner and they had to rearrange the seating. Service was bit slow, but it was a Friday evening and they were clearly very busy. The food was excellent, and despite the noise levels, we were able to relax and enjoy ourselves. Food rpices very reasonable; wine a bit more pricey.

    Really poor service. We had to ask multiple times for drinks, long delays between everything. The food was fine, most things slightly over cooked. Definitely not a recommendable experience.

    Bad experience— the food is not fresh. Baked Camembert is basic. I’ve had far better ones in terms of cheese and added flavors (such as pear and walnut etc). The honey tomato is lovely, tangy and not too sweet, but still basic. Also it will be better to present the cheese in a ceramic baking dish, otherwise it cools down very quickly. And then downhill from basic to bad. The wait for the main course is sooooooo loooooong. Maybe I should go help in the kitchen. The staff don’t know what to do (standing near the till together observing us but avoiding eye contact) and the managers don’t care. (“Have you spoken to them?””I told them 2 more minutes.” No I asked first and it didn’t come until after five more minutes. No you don’t refer to your customers as “them” in front of them.”🙄— and this is the managers’ face not us.) The chicken gratin is not creamy or baked at all, more like a grilled chicken leg thrown into some random sauce. My friend says the chicken tastes off “like some animal other than chicken”, and it looks very dry. My sea bream is slightly better. At least the plating is more presentable and the skin is properly charred, but it’s not fresh either. Dry and streaky and lumpy, the cream sauce can’t save it. I’m almost certain the fish was frozen, badly frozen. The onion was raw. The baby potatoes weren’t cooked through. (*Imagine Gordon Ramsay shouting at you.) Whilst waiting, I was joking if they were still catching the chicken or fish. Now I guess the kitchen was desperately drying to thaw the ingredients in one hour. Ground floor was two third empty though looked cozy. First floor and restroom is ice cold. That also tells the run-down state of things… Pity I used to trust the chain restaurant for some simple French inspired food. I won’t come again here or in London. And they didn’t checkin my reservation despite the fact that we mentioned our booking twice and a lady took my name.

    The lunch set menu was good value. Not initially offered so I suspect the restaurant preferred you to order from the a la carte menu. Very attentive and asked several times about allergies which was very good practice. Recommended.
