My fourth visit in two months. Fabulous, interesting food options and a perfect place to visit whenever you are near the Thames or the Embankment. The Garden Cafe is a perfect place for lunch and when C19 eases i hope to get there for dinner too. Each of my guests have really enjoyed the ambience, food and service - and we all ADORE your home-made bread! Thankyou and i look forward to joining you again after lockdown 2.

I love eating at the Garden Cafe. It is always delicious as well as different and interesting. I have eaten things here which are entirely new to me. Those are exciting experiences.

Great staff and great food - have often enjoyed lunch or brunch at the cafe and this was our first time going for dinner. Easy to recommend for somewhere different with a very welcoming and relaxed vibe on a Friday night (note, think they're only open for dinner on Fridays).

the wine list was interesting but dissappointed somewhat. otherwise the excellent execution of the seasonal ingredients commends much about this exciting kitchen/cafe.

The food was absolutely outstanding -- loved our gnocchi and venison rags and our server couldn't have been better. A real gem.

The staff were extremely pleasant and helpful. The food was memorable. We had a lovely experience. Due to new Covid restrictions, we managed to sit outside as we were mixed households; this presented no problem for the staff and we were well taken care of.

We were very disappointed with our meal. The Ribollata was tasty but I was disappointed there were no croutons on the top and, more importantly, the servings were very small even for someone who has a small appetite. Also, we chose to have carrot cake for dessert and found it was very dry. A great pity as we really enjoyed our visit to the museum.

Very friendly, fabulous food, great atmosphere, smart service. I have been three times recently and have always taken guests who loved it too. The menu is always interesting and we love your bread.
