We came here for a great breakfast before exploring the sites. I had the ham cheese omelette and my husband had a breakfast sandwich. Service was great and I would highly suggest this place for a great American/English Breakfast.

In London for a week last week, with side trips to Brussels and Edinburgh, we ate dinner at Garfunkel's on our 3rd night.

Stopped by Garfunkel's after a long morning at the National Gallery and Trafalgar Square. The weather was a bit blustery and we were so happy to find Garfunkel's warm and inviting. The food and tasty and service good. Had the fish & chips which were very good.

If you're American the food is like diner food but better. The fish and chips as well as the hot dog were delightful. The staff was very pleasant and the food was quick to come out of the kitchen. Easy to get to as it is right off of Trafalgar Square.

Couple of outside tables but you can't order just a cocktail to sit out and drink (so order an appetizer). Enjoyed a couple of quick meals here (average but large selection).

Good spot near Trafalgar Square for quick bite. Chicken tenders were good and for entrees the bacon cheese burger and fish and chips platters were generous portions. Friendly hostess and waitress with fast service even with diner being fully packed during lunch time.

Had breakfast here a couple of mornings and lunch once. Nice warm atmosphere, extensive menu and professional and efficient staff. We went three times because of this so I guess that says something.

Restaurant very quiet when we arrived, friendly welcome, service was very quick and efficient, good hot tasty food and not mega expensive. Similar to Frankie & Benny's but better menu in our opinion. This was our best value for money meal on this trip. You won't be disappointed. Child Friendly with healthy kids menu.

Fabulous meal, great location and staff were very friendly. I really like the kids passport and view finder that they get. Really good for keeping little ones busy whilst waiting for food. Portions are the right size too. I only wish there was one in Manchester as I would definitely go again.
