Don't really know where to start. We went as a show and dine option. The food was awful, terrible, microwaved, tasteless and bland. Can't find any other words to use. It was like a flashback to 1980's school dinners. All the food had been pre-plated, the salad was lifeless. I was looking forward to fish and chips then the menu... More

This restaurant could be very, very good. Service is very professional, the food is tasty, hot and good. The pricing is very competitive. The restaurant is clean and tidy, well laid out, tastefully decorated, so far no complaints BUT absolutely it has no atmosphere. This is such a shame. The menu is a set menu 3 courses for £15 with...

As we had booked for the show at the Winter Gardens, we took advantage of the 'Show& Dine' offer to take the dinner at the Empress. I must start by saying that this is not a restaurant I would have considered if I had been looking for a venue in Blackpool, and I can continue by confiring that it will... More
