Cantina del Ponte

Oh dear, I'd love to say that we had a delightful experience at this restaurant but I'm afraid I can't!

The plus side is the location - fabulously situated beside the Thames, if you're lucky enough to get a table outside then grab it while you can or even better, book ahead.

That's the plus point.....but unfortunately the food and service was pretty awful. It was overcooked, cold and looked as though it had been sitting around for ages. I suspect that a microwave had been at work at some stage!

The staff were very friendly and pleasant and were eager to please but were totally overworked and frazzled. Whether there was a delay in the kitchen I'm not sure, but some of the dishes we ordered were cold, some were over-cooked, some looked like they'd been lying around for ages and some didn't arrive at all!

We won't be back.
