One of the things that has struck me is that service on the whole is much worse than it was when I was here 11 yeats ago. Cafe Gannet bucks that trend and we got our food quicky without feeling rushed. The menu is a mix of seafood, meat and a separate sushi menu. My Indian fishcake starter an deconstructed... More

Well located very close to Museum. Had lunch outside on a beautiful sunny day. Food was really nice. I only wanted a small amount so ordered a sushi appetizer. It was really tasty. A friend had the Calamari and that was also delicious. Lovely relaxing lunch.

Smart and well-located, with some interesting appetisers that the main course failed to maintain. Not too bad but nothing special either, but high prices given the pub-style food.

Every thing, from their cocktails to their sushi are beyond delicious. The snail cigars starter is a must, they can make it a main meal! It's definitely the place to be

A modern busy restaurant but tables were well spaced to ensure privacy. Service was prompt food was very good, hot tasty and plentiful. There was also a sushi menu available. Good range of drinks on offer. Dessert menu was disappointing mostly ice cream.

After a long wait we could finally place our order. The oysters we wanted were out of stock. We ordered sparking water, but got still water instead. The white wine was placed on the table without a cooler or ice. We ordered tuna sushi and salmon sushi. They looked excatcly the same. The salmon was made hours ago and was... More
