The ambiance at Medina is spectacular. The food is inventive and delicious. We told our server we needed our dessert promptly in order to make a bus and then waited 25 minutes for it to be served, almost missing our transit home. We ordered dessert at the start of the meal so there was no excuse for this oversight and delay. In America, our dessert would have been free. We had a lovely romantic dinner up until that point.

Dear Miss and Mr who served us yesterday for our party of 5 on Sunday for 2:30 Lunch celebrating our sons 3rd and mother-in-laws 70th Birthdays. We flew back home to London the following day and my father-in-law is still talking how good the food was, Mother-in -law loved her deconstructed vegetarian main. And to top it off you kindly asked to take a lovely photo of us at our table. X Hats off to the staff and Chef! Great warmth and culinary standards. KR's Jose and Family

When we arrived, the smell from the numerous calor gas heaters was very off-putting. It’s also a shame when you have a special evening of this type, that the quiet of the evening is ruined by a table with two unsettled young children including a baby. Not what I would expect for a restaurant of this Calibre.

The starters were great as was the sea bream cooked in foil. The service was slow.

We had a wonderful romantic meal at the Medina. The food was delicious and the service was spot on (Kristina went above and beyond to make the evening perfect). We will definitely be returning.

Good food, on the fancier side of presentation rather than just food. Nice area and good service, just quite slow.

Food surprisingly bland and way too expensive for what it was. Service slow although friendly and helpful. Lovely place and nice atmosphere.
