The menu available is the standard Marriott restaurant menu, it was identical to the restaurant in the Bexleyheath Marriott where I stayed the previous week. I ordered the mushroom pasta for £12. It was lukewarm, the mushrooms were watery and tasteless and the creamy goats cheese sauce consisted of large lumps of cheese. To top off the poor food was... More

This restaurant is part of the Marriot hotel. We were staying at the hotel and decided to have dinner here. The dining room is light and airy and pleasantly decorated. We both however found the food to be very disappointing. For example the salad was smothered in dressing. The staff were all very pleasant. We are due to stay again... More

Having been here many years ago when it was excellent I thought when meeting friends it would be a venue worth revisiting. It was however disappointing - the carvery itself was priced well but the actual meal was served on cold plates and by the time we had served ourself and got back to the table the meal was luke...

We had two meals here, dinner and breakfast, one poor, one reasonable. Dinner, I ordered sirloin steak with roast tomatoes and hand cut chips. I received rib-eye steak, a heavily dressed salad and although they were the shape of hand cut chips were more akin to poorly cooked roast potatoes. My wife ordered Ballatine chicken with crispy potato cake and... More

the restaurant was almost empty so the service was quick. The soup of the day was delicious and the mozzarella salad was tasty and looked great. we sat outside on the patio and despite the fact the M25 is very close it was very quite and present.

Dined at this resturaunt whilst staying at Marriott Waltham Abbey with my young family. The breakfast staff were really friendly and very accommodating, particularly with my young boys. They have a nice selection of fruits, muesli, cereals, bread, pastries and off course hot English breakfast food. I had an amazing Seabass dish for dinner, which was on the specials. Dinner... More

I eat out most Sunday afternoons, but must say the beef was cooked to perfection, and was one of the best I've had in a while. All the food was well prepared and beautiful. I spoke to a staff member who explained they purchase their beef locally, and have been to the same supplier for years as its so good.... More
