This cafe is an icon in West End. Meals are ordered and paid for at the counter and then brought to your table. The cakes and deserts at the counter looked divine. Once inside, the cafe is bigger than it looks, with twists and turns...More

Few cafes can top the ambience of 3 Monkeys. We shared a vegetarian pizza (delish!!) and haloumi platter (simple but fresh n tasty) between 3 of us which was ample. Friendly staff.

The staff are very friendly and helpful, and service was quite prompt. Coffee was ordinary and with coffee grinds in the bottom of the cups, the machine could possibly use a clean. We opted out of the huge array of cakes, as nothing was house...More

Staff friendly and I gave it a '1' for ok coffee. The haloumi platter was dreadful. It was meant to be toasted pitta, hummus, grilled haloumi and Greek salad. What I got was raw pitta, completely tasteless ice cold hummus, shriveled rubbery haloumi and 'garden...More

There are not a lot of places quite like the Three Monkeys. I come here for the cozy courtyard, the beautiful mysterious interior, the unique intimate small sections of seating and corridor, elements of the east and the past give you a feeling of traveling...More

Revisited this cafe/teahouse after ten years and it is still marvelous. Ordered cappuccino and a slice of New York cheesecake at the counter and selected the seat near the entrance door. Later on, I discovered that this section of the cafe has more lighting and...More
