Raoul’s Cafe – Little Venice

Raoul’s Cafe is definitely the place to come to for Sunday brunch! The cafe was so busy and full when we went there on this particular Sunday. We thought that we would be waiting a really long time for a table. So we were pleasantly surprised when we were seated within five or so minutes. The perfect…

Portobello Ristorante Pizzeria – Notting Hill

Great quality pizza and a lovely atmosphere is what you get at Portobello Ristorante Pizzeria! The restaurant is fairly small and you can see the big dome wood burning oven situated at the back of the dining area. There is also an outdoor seating area, which looked like it would accommodate the same amount of diners as…

Ca’puccino – Westfield London

Ca’puccino has two floors and the relaxed atmosphere is helped by the spacious seating areas. The upstairs floor has some comfy seating and white leather chairs. The lighting is slightly dark. It would be very easy to spend quite a lot of time here. We liked the quirky decor of tower blocks of books distributed…

Pars – Maida Vale

Pars is very deceiving when you see it from the outside as it looks just like a takeaway shop. Step inside though and you are transformed into a colourful Persian restaurant! The quirky environment sets the scene for sampling lots of Persian food delights! The ceiling is draped with colourful fabrics, the tiled walls are…

Reun Thai – Hammersmith

As soon as I entered Reun Thai, I was taken aback by the friendliness of the staff! It is quite a small restaurant and  was decorated in earthy tones. The wooden chairs were comfortable as they had seat cushions. The Pad Thai Jay was made of rice noodles, beansprouts, carrots, spring onions and crushed peanuts….

Tex-Mex Experience – Fulham Broadway

Tex-Mex Experience was discovered when we were trying to escape from a very rainy evening in Fulham! Initially, we went into the Fulham Broadway shopping centre to take shelter from the rain and then realised that there were restaurants in the building. Another enlightenment was the fact that it was actually time for dinner and…

Bar 163 – Egham

If you’re looking for reasonably priced traditionally cooked food served in a warm friendly atmosphere, then Bar 163 in Egham should fit the bill. The exterior of the building looks very Victorian to me, while inside you’ve got a good mix of antique and modern furnishing. A strange choice of combination, but it really does…

Cafe Laville – Little Venice

This is a romantic little cafe which has beautiful views overlooking the canal. Perfect for a sunny day! The coffee and tea were good, with the tea being served by the pot. Soy milk is available. The food looked very tasty and we were definitely tempted by it. The staff were very friendly and the service…
