I went there with a push chair and my wife and baby at 3pm. They were still serving but the restaurant was almost empty, they simply rejected us saying it was their "company policy" not to accept push chairs. How idiotic can this be when the restaurant is almost empty...I don't recommend it of course.

I have eaten at many restaurants the world over . I have never been charged for hot water with lemon! Today was a first with Raouls charging £4.80 plus service for two glasses of hot water. When I queried thus with the manager he just insisted in a very complacent way that this is what they did. I said was... More

This used to so be smart and sophisticated but the service has gone downhill as the prices have gone uphill

The eggs Benedict and the french toasts are absolutely superb! I would recommend trying them. The service is poor. You always receive your coffee at the same time or after the food. Even though you ordered it way before. They also usually forget to bring you stuff you asked for (like additional sauce, glass of water, etc.). Always have to... More

Set in the delightful 'village' atmosphere of Maida Vale with outside tables and a comfy interior. An extensive menu throughout the day and upgraded at evenings . The brightest yellow eggs I have ever seen. Kippers are excellent and good coffee. Good value too.

Apparently this venue do not allow prams! Despite being a couple with one small pram and a baby clearly fast asleep within... and there being plenty of room if they allowed us to slide out one chair. Awful customer service and unfriendly.

I can't even believe i am forced to give them a star. Absolutely appalling service. We waited 20-25 mins to be served with atleast 6 people looking at us and ignoring us. Finally someone decided to serve us and the service was slow. Our drinks came 10 minutes later, and we could see the barista wasn't even busy. The woman... More
