Just one small gripe and that the water in the coffee machines wre not very hot
The Grand Cafe offers a superb dining experience offering a rich and diverse range of tasting options as starters to perfectly smoked salmon and traditional mains. We highly recommend this smorgasbord.
Great food and atmosphere puddings could have a bit more variety.
Yeah the food was actually really terrible lol. Like the fish and chips were cooked perfectly but every dessert was disgusting (totally inedible, except the ice cream was pretty alright, good sauces), and then the ham was dry as a desert, the Moroccan chicken should have been called cilantro chicken (couldn’t even taste the chicken), the saag didn’t taste like spinach or saag at all but would have been good if it was a stew I suppose, the soup was gritty lol, the eggs benedict were sweet? Like they literally taste like vanilla? You couldn’t taste the Hollandaise even though they were literally drowning in it and the eggs were undercooked. Also it says on the website that breakfast is served until 2 - and that lunch is added. But that’s not really the case at all. I’m highly disappointed.
So great to have breakfast available in the weekends, always enjoy the food it's always freshly cooked and served. The variety is just right and the foods are spread out nicely for easy traffic to and from the tables. Thank you.
Lovely food at a reasonable price.
Haven't been to the Grand Café for years so wasn't sure what to expect - But was pleasantly surprised - Great service, excellent food and a lovely atmosphere and loved the free birthday meal!! We will definitely be back.
Very disappointed that the Seniors Discount is no longer available on Thursday evening. Will stop us from coming as frequently.
Really enjoyed it. Good value. Will be back.
Good value, friendly & obliging staff plus ambient surroundings make for a pleasant dining experience.
We had a beautiful meal here. The variety of food on the buffet was varied & there was something for all tastes. The only negative here is that with First Table' you only have 1 1/4 hrs to eat so it makes for quite a rushed evening, trying to get through several courses in that time in the evening. Also staff were very attentive but were waiting for your empty plates to whisk away. The guy sitting next to us was still eating when a waitress tried to take his plate away. Will definitely be back though as we loved the food.
Amazing food and great service
We were celebrating our Wedding Anniversary and had a wonderful meal. The food was divine and the service was very good too.
We were a party of 8 and we're immediately looked after by attentive staff. The food was very varied and we'll cooked and was great value for money. We will be back!
Excellent food and service,
Perfect, fresh food attentive staff
Awesome selection of food and drink
always has been good and it still is
Excellent range of food, but would have liked a few more salad items to choose from. Next time I w1ll be trying out the Pasta which looked interesting. The Curried Chicken was to die for.
Food good, service always very friendly. Wish hollandaise available seperate from the eggs benedict.
Great value lunch buffet Cost, style and atmosphere superb. Back again when next in Ch-CH. Take a Bow Grand Café, top class!!!
Amazing food, lovely staff, all around a great experience 😊😁
Great variety and service.
No record of my booking, which had been made and confirmed that morning. Luckily there was a space and the staff were accommodating.
Not the same anymore
