There was a time, many moons ago, when 55 degrees offered a decent meal with a pleasant view. The good news is that the view is still pleasant. The food is sadly substandard, think 80s pub grub and you have to order three courses of...More

Terrible service, terrible food and terrible experience. Left waiting, staff don't want to be there and they are totally ill prepared and lacked experience. Take too many walk ins and can't manager them. I used to love this place but won't be back!

This place was a miss on every level: The food was dreadful (I'm vegetarian and what I got was the equivalent of cheap slop on a plate)....but even worse was the service. It wasn't clear as to who our server was - and we couldn't...More

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
When we were there last week we were told by one of the staff that there is no ladies toilet on the same level as the restaurant, only a ladies on the Bistro level. Can someone confirm if this is correct as we would like to take some elderly ladies for a meal who would be unable to use stairs. Also is there a disable ramp outside from the restaurant level to the Bistro level? Many thanks. Reenie654
