Ferrari's (Bromley)

Fabulous restaurant in Bromley situated on East Street, always busy during lunch times and dinner which is a great sign!

Food is fabulous and always comes fresh and bursting with flavour, great selection of wine and cocktails.

The only downside, often under staff so takes a while for orders to come through but perfect if you are not in a rush and want to enjoy great company. sometimes service with a smile is lacking but wonder if this is because staff are overworked.

We asked for items 3 or 4 times before noticed, waitress often forget the extra's and bill took over twenty minutes to arrive.

Zizzi (Bromley)

This little gem in bromley is perfect for all occasions, nice little treat when you want to refuel for shopping (glades opposite) and nice venue to catch up with friends or treat a love one.

The menu has recently changed and a large range of fantastic dishes, more options for vegetarians and the healthy ones who don't relish the overload of carbs.

Highly recommend Tricolore con Bufala, (avocado, mozzarella and tomatoes) and antipasto Misto (array of meats, cheese, peppers etc) for starters, be warned the starters are so large, a main meal can be left unfinished.

Pasta's - the old tiime favorite genovese has been replaced with farfalle (huge portions) and the sauce is not the same as before, however still a filing meal and priced at 7.95 is a bargain.

The risotto option has been introduced and gives customers a chance to move away from the pizza and pasta option which is a great touch.

Set menu for three course meal at 19.95 is a great idea!

Overwhelmed by the extended menu and one of our favorite restaurants in Bromley for a cheap, great food and staff are always friendly and warming.

Thumbs up!

Cafe Mono

Where did it all go wrong?

The lack of customers on a friday night whilst next door is thriving is a sign standards have slipped.

Lack of imagination with the menu and as regulars this has not changed in years and all time favorites sea bass and Dauphenoise was bland and looked "Heated up" in the microwave as sauce was dried. My partners burger was bland and lacked the old magic, his plate of food untouched when the waitress came to remove the dishes.

Service is lacking, considering half empty on a friday night, waitress was slow and looked bored when asked if the meal was okay, when my partner mentioned the food was bland and chips very greasy, she shrugged her shoulders and walked away. No interest at all.

Our second visit in two weeks and standards have slid so wont be back.

Zizzi (Bromley)

Situated next door to Pizza Express, always popular so worth booking in advance for a table on Friday/Saturday night. Good clean resturant with friendly staff. Pizza's over cooked on last visit and needed a steak knife to get through.

Goats cheese starter an all time favorite which never fails to please.

Good value for money and pizza's larger than Pizza Express.

The Page Pub and Thai Restaurant

It's sad to read a bad review on this pub as the food is divine! We have been fans for over 5 years and always popular at lunchtime and afterwork drinking and eating!

The page has something very unique in Victoria, it's a great place to meet up and have a bite to eat, the service is always professional and friendly.

Reasonable price, great selection of beers and wines, all time favorite

The Camel (Victoria)

Where did it all go wrong?

Great place for after work drinks but not for too long, chairs are falling apart and cushions put back together with masking tape - classy! Always too smokey, too noisy and new restaurant in the back means lack of space. This pub is always busy due to lack of competition in the area but standards have slipped. This pub use to be great!

Rockwell Bar

One of the best places in town for a nice cocktail, service always professional and friendly.

Be warned the cocktails are quite pricey and your wallet could suffer.

Great night out!

The Cinnamon Club

After reading the reviews on this site I regreted my decision of booking a table for 10 people but alas too late to cancel.

The service was first class as you would expect in this establishment, beautiful velvet roses everywhere!

A vast menu with little choice for Vegetarians (2 courses available) but woo! I tried the stir fry of paneer and baby corn with thyme and chilli naan and I have never eaten such a fantastic Indian in my life! The smell, the flavours were out of this world! Around me my colleagues tried the lamb, deer etc and all commented the food was excellent.

I can't not find one fault in the service, meal etc. Everything was first class and I will be back very soon.

Numero Uno (Clapham)

A big fan of this Italian, the service and food fantastic!

I have been coming here for years and pizza, pasta and fish is wonderful, try the warm bread starters with an array of olive oils, crushed olive etc dips. Mouth watering!

The restaurant has expanded at the back so large groups can be catered for, perfect. A little gem in Victoria

Oscars (Whiteleys)

Looks a great restaurant from the outside, quite busy around 9pm which is always a good sign. However rather expensive menu for what you get and food pretty average if not bland. Staff friendly enough although ordering a glass of wine provided a struggle as "Not enough glasses available"

Lack of vegetarian options and main courses are £14.95 per dish upwards.

Tokyo Diner

First time dinner with a friend who visits frequently and love it!!! Food fantastic, service excellent, no tips and a honest no-posh, no extra charges and no muck about. I can't stop raving about it and will continue to go back and back.

Yum Yums

This perfect little gem in Bromley, located next to Bromley North Station, Yum Yum offer a service with a smile discourgaging wide boys and youngsters. The food is out of this world, offering tradional english meals, huge portions at great value. The meze upstairs caters for large groups or small groups of 2/4 people. Downstairs bar area with tables and stools to watch the world go bar. (2 screens) available offering footie on Sunday afternoon's.

Try the sunday roast, out of this world!!!!!

You don't need to eat to enjoy the friendless of yum yum's, even a refreshing glass of beer on the way home makes this place one of the best places in Bromley

Quilion is a fabulous venue, more atomsphere than the Cinnamon Club, and by far the best Indian Restaurant around Victoria/Westminster.

The staff were attentive and accomodated my whims for "Mild Meals" and "No Corriander".

A Great Vegetarian choice suggested by the waiter and highly recomend the Chick Pea Masala for main.

Excellent Wine list available and I indulged in my favorite Cloudy Bay which is a nightmare to find in the UK!

£93.00 (Including Wine) for lunch, will definately be back in the New Year.

Strada (Battersea)

If you arrive before 7pm be sure to take advantage of the Pizza, Pasta, Starter and Wine deal for 7.95!

Our waiter didn't offer us this deal and overheard another waiter telling the girls on the next table so not a great start!

The food arrived swiftly and was gorgeous, portion sizes are generous. I would recommend the pesto bread for starters and Buffalo Pasta.

My only gripe would be the service, everything appeared very rushed and staff were eager to leave for the new arrivals, not a big problem as we made it into Dixie's before Happy Hour Ended!
