I have dined at Food a few times, at each visit the quality and value has been reliably excellent. Lunchtimes are incredible value, I think it was £5 last time I visited (May 08) the mountain of Mussels in a Thai/coconut broth were wonderfully plump and delicious. yum! The staff are always pleasant and attentive without being intrusive.
Food is in a road leading off the seafront not far from the 'lido', incredibly it was easy to find a parking space on a hot, sunny Saturday :)
Attended a family Birthday bash here, and was not impressed. We arrived a little early and was, quite brusquely, ushered to a waiting area. We were not permitted to order a drink while waiting. We found some of the staff quite discourteous. The ordering/delivery of food was disorganized and poorly timed. The food itself wasn't anything to write home about.
All in all.not a good experience, however, quite happy to give 3 stars for lovely lighting effect, the piano player and the cool air outside!!!
Just had the Express Lunch for £5 here, I had Latino Popcorn which is battered prawns and a sweet chilli dipping sauce - it was fresh and tasty! The batter was clean and light and the dipping sauce was well spiced.
The restaurant is large and styled in quite a comtemporary and eclectic design - touches of classical, mediterranean and a baby grand piano!
The service was very friendly and they gave us a high chair for the baby - there is also a baby changing room/toilet which is handy to note!
We would go here again for evening fare - the lunch was quick and fresh (and cheap!)
Really good experience at this restaurant. Service was really sharp and the food was above average. I say above average as we ordered from the lunch menu. I had steak and chips, good solid meal, well cooked and well presented. Price was perfect for a lunch outing. 2 meals, 2 drinks £15 in and out within an hour. Will be going there again for an evening adventure soon...
I have dined here recently on their £5 lunch offer. fantastic pasta dish, huge portion so did not go hungry. main menu offers delicious fish and meat dishes alongside pasta and other dishes to chose from. they have another restaurant which i think is cafe fish. all good value and clean fresh restaurant. nice atmosphere. great for party or special night out or quick lunch. i shall visit many more times
Went for an evening meal on a Friday it was very busy and we got a table even though we had not booked. A very lively place with an upstairs.Staff very helpful and attentive. I started with mussels which were very good followed by the duck with noodles excellant. My partner started with the bacon and butter nut squash soup followed by the beef wellington again very good. A good selection of wines. Cant say much about the beers but they seemed to do a good variety.The seating was very hard. But all in all a very enjoyable place.
