A bit disappointed, burger and salmon were good but served with literally nothing else in the plate. Service slow and needed to ask for additional things multiple times, we gave up on asking for ketchup after the 2nd attempt! Shame as the place decor is trendy and light.

2 burgers were undercooked, blood running on plate. No chips! What restaurant runs out of chips at 7.30 on a Friday evening. More burgers were offered but we were left with the side orders so these were eaten separately as they were getting cold. Not what we expect on a night out. Smell if drains in restaurant, waitress said it was the plants. Bill reduced for 1 burger. Not really good enough. Staff were polite as we were with them.

The food was fine and the space was nice, albiet very quiet. I think the evening would have ended on a better note if I hadn't had to negotiate for a discount after a number of issues. I found it odd that of the one salad on the menu the chef "forgot" to add some of the ingredients and then waiter spilt an entire cocktail on me! Just very strange and disappointing evening.

Brunch with my friend eating the best nana caramel pancakes I have ever eaten in my life!

The design of the restaurant is gorgeous it has this nature and lots of natural wood finishing.

The staff were amazing and tentative.

My friend had one of their Bellini’s and it tasted so good.

Even the bathroom is fabulous.

Can’t recommend this place enough.

My friend and I visited on Sunday brunch, having heard great reviews of this place. Unfortunately, our experience was not.

We were seated upstairs, which was OK, but lost some of the atmosphere. When we went downstairs to pay, the employee (sorry I didn't get her name) behind the bar was texting "her supervisor" on her phone. As I work in hospitality myself, I do appreciate that these things are sometime necessary, but either take it to the staff office or wait until after the busy Sunday shift has finished.

The worst was the food, I am afraid. I ordered the Complete Italomanic. The food didn't taste fresh (particularly the rockets and salad on the side), the bread was greasy, and the beans were flavourless. They looked like they had been stewing on the side of the kitchen for several days . Sorry if this is not the case, just my experience. My friend ordered the Eggs Benedict. It lacked flavour again, and the portions were really small.

It was a real disappointment; we left feeling that we had a unpleasant experience. It is a shame as we were really looking forward it. Maybe it was just a bad shift?

Our food was very mediocre in taste, and also was the presentation. (Eggs Benedict meant Eggs Benedict - the plate looked empty and dry). The establishment appeared to be experiencing disorder, at 8:15 in the morning. Our server was a delightful young women from Spain, we had a little bit of communications breakdown, but we lightly figured it out, and she was so delightful and fun. THE Big issue: when we were leaving around 9:00 am, a women came in, apparently their supervisor/owner, and started reading the staff the riot act . She did this in front of all of the customeres, we were about three tables from the door, everyone in there heard her. We had already realized that their was some disorder going on, but not a problem for us - things happen. Don't know who she was, but she made our breakfast experience very unpleasant. She could have taken it to a back room, instead of subjecting the customers to her fury. She should rethink what her customer relations position should be, or maybe, The Megaro could help her with this - Bottom Line: She won't help your business, whoever she is. The employees before she arrived appeared to make it work, although experiencing disorder. Again, our young women from Spain, was wonderful.

The service was rude and quite matter of fact. We had a vegan dietary request on our table and we asked for any vegan dishes. The request was instantly dismissed without even consideration of asking the kitchen. Fine this happened but later the same waitress asked the lady why she wasn’t ordering a main...

The noise level of other people was not something I’d have been worried about as I enjoy places you can feel free to relax and enjoy yourself in without worrying if you’re being too loud etc. However, there must have been building work above or next door as there was a lot of banging and electric drill noises which was very irritating. The staff however were all lovely, even when a glass was accidentally broken by our table they were really good about it and the staff are what turned it around and the reason I’d go back!

Great Brunch really nice and service was good Obrigada to the manager who looked after us, sorry can’t recall your name
Only quibble is I got a notification by email about the unlimited brunch but felt that it was a bit misleading as you have to pay a minimum of £15 just for the drink? Why no set price menu with the Prosecco included?

Arrived at 18.30. No one else to be seen. The foccaccia starter was the greasiest we have ever eaten. The pasta was incredibly thick and undercooked. It was a dreadful meal but at least the staff apologised and didn't charge for the food. Avoid.

Overall we had a nice time but service reallllyyyyy lacked at points. We had to ask three times to get the bill yet they couldn’t clear our plates quick or stop our unlimited processo the exact minute we had to even though we’d been sitting waiting for a top up for a while. We had to wait a lot for top ups, dont offer unlimited if you’re going to be reluctant to fill up glasses. My dish also sat at the pass for a long time before my pals dish was served up- meant the muffin was soggy and the hollandaise has a skin.

Yogurt bland and sweet, berries a very few tasteless blueberries. Toast soggy with no offers of extra or preserves. Tea would be better in a pot. Very poor all round.
