We have walked past the Waterloo Bar and Kitchen, five minutes walk from the station, many times and always promised ourselves we should give it a go. It looks so inviting with subtle lighting and crisp white tablecloths - and it's always reassuringly busy. So we took the plunge on a cold Monday night. First the good bits. Peroni Lager... More

Food is generally good but there is nothing that really stands out. Reasonable selection of wine list and can be quite pricy. Not rating this place highly but is worth a try if you happen to be around Waterloo.

Great place in a very convenient part of London just round the corner from Waterloo station. Very good food, cooked to a good standard. Very good service, staff were attentive and patient. Very busy all evening with a great ambiance and a good buzz.

Can't comment on evening service as have only been here for breakfast before (good) and Saturday lunch today. Lunch was excellent, we all had the special which was swordfish steak +avocado salsa and sweet potato fries with a rocket salad garnish. Couldn't fault anything, it was delicious. The service was polite and attentive and we lingered over really good desserts... More

Food and service were good but the wine was over priced. The decor was uninspiring and our seats were very draughty as it was a cold night and people kept going in and out of the function room downstairs and the toilets upstairs. We met friends here as it was so close to Waterloo station so it is convenient.

It's a great place to meet and the food is good but not value for money, far too pricey. One saving grace was the coffee, one of the best I've had in London recently

We had a lovely meal with friends. We have been several times before and know the food is good. The service was good too. BUT - as we got towards the end of our meal a different member of staff came over, called us 'guys', said he needed our table and wanted us to move to another table for coffee.... More

The food here is always reliable, and very good. Service is always good, and you can easily be in and out within an hour or so.

Needed a place for a late lunch on a Saturday afternoon, party of 6, for a catch up. This place was known to one of the party as she used to go here many years earlier so we gave it a try - not exactly spoiled for choice in Waterloo. Turned out to be perfect for us as not too... More

The dishes are good, tasty and well presented. The wine was too strong (14deg)...at least it could be mentioned on the wine card. Good prices. A nice place where to eat in family.

Thank Ebonn
