Ordered predinner cocktails which didn’t arrive until after breads & entre, extremely disappointing, after complaining service improved to 100% what you expect from an establishment of this standard. Management acknowledged the issue and credited the cost of the cocktails. This is not the first time we have experienced delays with predinner drinks something Lava management need to address given the standard this establishment presents

On this visit both my friend and I found our mains (fish and gnocchi) on the express-lunch was a bit extra salty. Also evertime I find there’s an annoying fruit fly hovering around our table! Other than that full marks on the food, service and admosphere.

Wonderful experience as usual (3rd time dining at Lava). Sebastian our waiter was excellent. Attentive but not overbearing. A perfect mix.

餐前面包赞,单点食物口味不错,分量不大。30分钟套餐一般,儿童餐价格非常优惠,服务也算合宜。A佳卡需要核对是否正确折扣。

We had a fabulous wedding anniversary dinner at Lava on Saturday night. Right from the beginning the evening got off to a great start with the attentive staff. The whole evening was top rate and we really enjoyed ourselves and the fine food. Thanks for being part of our special evening! Travis & Melanie

Always a pleasure. Thus why we keep going back and taking friends and family. Had a very unpleasant Shirley Temple drink. Mentioned it. They replaced it and realised previous drink provided was missing an ingredient, thus why it wasnt very tasty. Top service as usual 👌 Thank you again.

Firstly we couldn't fault the food ,service and atmosphere. One issue was for the online reservation it asked if it was a special occasion. I selected birthday as it's was my birthday. I found no acknowledgement of that was disappointing.

Terrible rude service, inedible food, wine waiter who didn't understand the wine-list. Probably the worst lunch I've ever had. I have made a written complaint, but have had no response. Will NEVER dine there again!!
