Had the most amazing dinner, I had the vegetarian dish, and it was just devine. Beautiful presented, fresh and perfectly cooked. Service was outstanding, we had Nilofiler as our waitress and she was excellent. Sat outside which was also very nice. Breakfast was also great

A really great space to have pre dinner drinks, catch up with friends. Open long hours, serving food until late, a great venue.

We had dinner at Emporium and we're impressed by the quality and variety of food we ordered. Even the light bites were generous and tasty. Great flavours and reasonable prices plus lovely art Deco surroundings. Highly recommended.

We ate breakfasts, lunch and dinners at the Emporium over two days during a recent stay at the Art Deco Masonic Hotel. The food was amazing with pizzas and the coconut chicken salad real stand outs. The bar was also amazing with great selections of wine, beer and cocktails. All of this is set in a unique Art Deco decor... More

Beautiful Art Deco building, decorated internally as well- very eclectic and interesting. Delicious meal, fast friendly service - we went back the next night as well. Not a very long menu, but enough variety and we had dessert as well.

Lovely location, nice Art Deco. Service poor - the waitress was a bit miserable and they managed to miss the side order (which then came back under as it was rushed) and the bill too a while to come. Food ok overall but let down by the service.

Hello Ian H Thank you for your recent visit, my apologies for the service lapse with missing a side order, happy to read that we put it right by rushing it through once we were aware of the mistake. Kind Regards Shaye Bird More
