About The Garden Café
The Garden Cafe serves food that is seasonal and visually stimulating, with a focus on simple ingredients and a menu that changes daily
Amazing quality food in a clean and bright room.
Lovely spot for well executed seasonal cooking. . Makes a change when I was relegated to sitting outside when i wanted just a coffee when it first started. A bit of a bubble from the residents or visitors to the garden museum - aimed at mainly the wealthier employees from over the westminster side of town. g
I live locally and had been meaning to eat at The Garden Cafe for some time. I took an international visitor for lunch, perfect for an early winter afternoon. When we were leaving I made the point of telling the staff that everything was absolutely brilliant - a rare occurrence when dining out in London. Great produce treated perfectly and not overwrought or complicated. The way food should be. Highlights included, the house-baked Sourdough, Purple Sprouting Broccoli with Breadcrumbs & Pickled Chillies, Guanciale with Castelfranco & Quince. We shared the starters and then both had Seat Trout with Hollandaise, Potatoes & Watercress. Bang on! The in-house bread & pastry chef came to the fore again with the delicious choux buns with brandy prune Creme and a brilliant Pecan Pie with Creme Fraiche. Everything truly hit the right note of being seasonally appropriate with hits of freshness. Nothing heavy or lacklustre. I’ve already recommended this little gem to others as a shining light in the otherwise bleak SW8/SE1 food landscape. One note, menu had been printed without some changes. Not a big deal. All servers sweet and attentive, could have been quicker to offer arrival drinks. Planning to revisit within the next two weeks. Bravo Guys and Thank You!
Pleasant bright and quiet space for a relaxed lunch with friendly service and good food.
Really enjoyed our meal and thought it good value for money. Thanks for 'finding' a gin and tonic when it wasn't listed on the menu.
We like it here - super place, good food, friendly staff
Always delicious plates. And lovely waiting staff.
I am a regular at this restaurant for breakfast lunch and dinners as menu interesting, food is good, vegetarian options, fish is tasty, staff very friendly and professional, tables cleaned in between courses, proper napkins, lovely wine, gorgeous setting, modern decor, glass windows looking out onto lovely plants in gardens, spacious restaurant. Overall a real treat and price is right.
Lovely dinner and great service!
I meet up with an old friend every couple of months - she works in Westminster and this is a charming and convenient venue a little oasis of calm with good food, a tasty vegetarian option and friendly service - we like the walk over the bridge and enjoy our lunch. Thank you!
Lovely place, lovely meal
Loved the unusual and fresh twist on familiar ingredients (mallard with pork), and the venison bites with quince jelly. Lovely light and airy room of a daytime. Friendly service. Will definitely return.
Thoroughly enjoyed our lunch. Will definitely be back.
Fresh, interesting food served promptly with a smile and linen napkins; no disappointment here!
Great food and great service!
Beautiful setting of the seating area around the courtyard, the food was fantastic, with a lot if attention to detail, top quality ingredients and a creative menu. Staff was attentive and amenable. We had a great afternoon. Thank you!
A really nice lunch venue which has become a regular for me this year. Friendly staff and service at about the right pace. My friends and I all enjoyed the food and the very good house red. I will be back!
As always, the menu was varied and interesting. Very good vegetarian and fish options. Fantastic service.
Delightful meal and very pleasant waiter
Great place and good food we are regulars.
The food was absolutely delicious, with unusual fresh vegetables. I would not hesitate to recommend The Garden Cafe to friends or family and hope to return again before too long.
loved it, really accommodating of a baby too.
Great food in a stylish setting!
Great space, great location and excellent food and service as always
The food was very pleasant, but main course portions were very small. Perhaps we were expected to have three courses, but that would have been very costly for us.
