Extremely well looked after by the waitress and the Maître D'. Service was professional whilst not intrusive. My Rump steak melted in the mouth while my guest's burger looked and was rather good and delicious. Compliment to the chef! I will definitely come back.

Even though my friend was late they were happy for me to take my seat and eventually we both enjoyed a good meal.

We were a large group for a hen party brunch and mostly were happy with our experience. The venue is beautiful and the table was lovely with individual place settings. However, the service was very slow and many orders got mixed up or were wrong. Everyone had finished eating by the time the last person got their food. The drinks took ages to come out. Some people were given toast and others were not. The vegan breakfast consisted of only mushrooms, tomatoes and beans (should have had hash browns, toast and avocado). Things were fixed eventually, but it was a shame. We appreciated being able to use the terrace to carry out our hen party games and activities. The canal makes a brilliant backdrop for this.

Could be so much better. Staff need a better system with kitchen - no chips with steak and yet we could see them getting cold. Too many waiters not knowing their tabled

A wonderful evening - dinner before a musical event. The Rotunda is spacious, elegant with an excellent bar and outside area overlooking the canal. The menu was varied, with a focus on exceptional red meat options. More time would be needed to enjoy such a meal. The service was excellent - attentive without being obtrusive. Certainly a restaurant and venue which will be visited again.

The venue itself, the setting and the experience are excellent. The food is good too, but the service we experienced was very slow and in some cases mixed and confused. The waiting staff really need to be properly trained and to follow up on requests made by diners or defer to another member of the team to complete without delay.

Really good to find somewhere open after the concert, and serving good food. We ordered the sharing plate of meat and ere given a massive plateful - had to take some home with us. Service very helpful and pleasant.

It was good to be able to eat outside, almost for the first time this year. The service staff are pleasant, but possibly a little stretched: eating pre concert we had main courses only, there was not time for dessert, although we had allowed over an hour. The outside terrace is pleasant although situated between two pretty noisy bar areas. My sea trout was a little overcooked for my taste, but was nicely complemented by the samphire and jersey royals. My companion enjoyed the lamb, which looked nicely pink. Overall a nice experience, and then a short step to a wonderful concert in King's Place.

The staff at the restaurant were lovely, attentive and friendly. Niamh who actually helped me via email was also the absolute epitome of professionalism and kindness. The venue is amazing and we were blessed with great weather which made the whole experience priceless. I would like to say a huge thank you and that I will be recommending this place to all who will listen!

I sent back starter as it was advertised as a crab Cesar salad but had less than half a tea spoon of crab in the whole dish. It wasn't even a garnish. A little more was added to make a teaspoon of crab. Far too much cheese and almost no dressing. £11.95 for the dish was a rip off. Poorly constructed and over priced. The Italian rose Pinot Grigio was excellent and the highlight of the meal.

Good service, poor food. Not knowing how to cook steak seems to be the most basic thing necessary for this type of restaurant.

Almost didn't proceed to the meal because of the noise and crowd in the bar that we had to force our way through to reach the restaurant section. Once there, all was well!
