We stopped in here after the parliament tour and had a wonderful lunch. The staff was friendly and helpful and willing to chat a little while we were being served. The pictures of all the different politicians on the walls were a nice touch. The...More

I have only one complaint, the chairs are so comfy it's really hard to eat as you simply sink into the material, great for sipping your wine thought. The service was great, the menu was nice (but would have loved fries with my salmon sandwich)....More

We ate here whilst waiting for our ticket entry into the Parliament buildings. Food is simple and quick with polite service, and the outside patio (at the front) is shady and has great views of the historic buildings. Nothing special but all perfectly OK.

The location is good, the decor is very interesting but the food was another big disappointment. We ordered the quiche. I don't know when or where they made it but it was neither fresh nor tasty.

Great lunch spot. The menu isn't huge, but there's a good variety. Personally, I like the sandwiches best. The patio has a great view of parliament and shade from real trees. The indoor seating looks more upscale, but without the higher prices. Atmosphere is very...More
