50% off at Cafe Mode - Endell Street

Cafe Mode, is a small unpretentious restaurant that makes great pizza, pasta and gourmet burgers, gourmet salads and fish.

The decor is a simple mix of dark wood and apricot walls and large mirrors, and the warm atmosphere, reasonable prices and delightfully friendly service have made this a hit, a welcome relief from the madness around Covent Garden.

Cafe Mode does a great range of staples served by friendly and capable staff, served in a neighbourhood style restaurant, which also has terrace seating outside.

Important Information

Please note: the tastecard discount is available on the a la carte menu only, this excludes the Breakfast Menu. Please be aware that this offer is not available at any other tastecard restaurants.

    5 of us went for a birthday meal yesterday evening, I had read the bad reviews but went anyway. Well I don't know what their problem was! Greeted like we were old friends, given a perfect table, no hassle from the staff just laughter and kindness and lots of time to chat and choose. We all had different starters and mains on the whole and all were lovely. The wine was great, a Rioja and extremely well priced so we had a second! When the bill came we were all pleasantly surprised. All the facilities were clean and good and we genuinely could find nothing to complain about, only to praise. What a find. Ignore the bad reviews, honestly the people who left them must be mad. Or went to the wrong place? "

    After being shown to our seats, we had to wait to get the attention of a waiter to ask for a menu. We then had to wait again to get their attention to order our food as it felt like they had forgotten we were there! After ordering our food the waiter brought out bottle of wine, plonked it on the table and walked off! When our starters arrived we were short of cutlery and had to make an effort to try get the waiters attention! The waitress took away some starters while others were still eating and brought all the mains before some of us had even finished our starters! And the food was just plonked down even those who were still eating their starters had their mains plonked down in front of them!
    The risotto was terrible! Tasted like it had just been mixed with a tin of tomatoes! Could not eat it! The pasta was some over done and some undercooked all in the one dish! The lasagna had no taste! The waiters and waitresses just seemed rude!

    Avoid at all costs!! "

    Been here several times over the last few years and it's always a pleasure.
    Never been an issue with the food (not sure what some people are after)
    Never had a problem using the taste card (unlike some places that seem to want to be difficult)
    Always a very relaxed and welcoming set of staff that seem to genuinely care that you've had a good experience at their restaurant.

    Last visit I had the steak which when presented looked very nice, not the largest but perfectly adequate and no smaller than you might get elsewhere. So certainly no complaints from me. Before I'd started The head guy (I presume) came over and said he wasn't happy with the size of the steak and had instructed the kitchen to prepare another. This was by no means at all necessary but the second steak duly arrived leaving me full and very happy !

    Top place in my opinion. Looking forward to going back ! "

    We went to this restaurant for a pre-theatre dinner. The food was varied. Pasta was good, but the risotto was not great. All the food was quite pricey for what it was, but no more than other places we have been to in covent garden. Good location for pre-theatre - close enough, but not bustling and overcrowded.
    The service was excellent - friendly staff who were keen to help and fairly quick. When I asked for the bill and forgot to mention tastecard, they were really quick and reasonable about refunding me the money. "

    " Thank God for tastecard, saved us 50% on what was the worst meal we have ever had. All reviews rave about the pizza and burgers, no pepperoni for the " very popular" spicy pepperoni pizza, also couldn't do a propper 4seasons due to lack of ingredients, had better burgers at Wimpy, lasagne was grim, tasteless and sloppy with grey meat, mushroom rissotto was like a ding uncle bens rice. No vinegar for chips with burger, no ice, no pepperoni, no house wine and no loo roll in toilets! Poor does not even nearly cover it.
    We hate reviews like this because it just looks like 1 person has had a bad meal, 4 of us dined and all had different meals, we are not usually picky or fussy but when you need to go to tesco for a meal deal for something 1/2 decent then something is not right. We were really quite excited about eating here based on previous reviews, money we wish we had spent elsewhere. "

    I have been coming to Café Mode for about seven years and have nothing but good things to say about this lovely restaurant. During this time I have tried many dishes and have never been disappointed. The food is always delicious and the service is fast. Café Mode has such a varied menu that there really is something for everyone here. What is more, the portions are generous! I have brought many friends here and they have all been very impressed and have said they would spread the word!

    One of the best things about Café Mode is the extremely friendly service. I am always greeted so warmly and made to feel very much at home. This makes it such a pleasure to keep coming back again and again to Café Mode. Nothing is too much trouble for the manager, his assistant and the staff. The people, the music and the décor give this restaurant a very happy atmosphere.

    Thank you, Café Mode, for some very enjoyable times. I am already looking forward very much to my next visit! "

    Went here expecting a decent quick meal, but ended up staying for 3 hours because the food was so good and it felt like you're in a lovely restaurant in Rome.

    The owner/manager was very attentive and kind, offering to do everything to make our time perfect. The other waitress was not up to this standard however.

    Drinks prices are good, and the food was exceptional. The sea bass was perfectly cooked with a delicious crispy skin and the steak cooked to perfection. The sides are maybe overpriced for how they're presented and the amount.

    Bravo! "

    Firstly all this uproar about the door being open is really overrated... The restaurant is fine and on request they close it happily and leave it closed. The house wine is both cheap and very very drinkable, happily worked through 2 bottles between a party of 3. Tastecard very easy to use and whilst service was a little slow the food quality was good especially in a very expensive area to eat. recommend to anyone going for a pre-theatre meal.. "

  • Sophia said: "Bad food, overpriced!
    Firstly, they leave the front door of the restaurant open so very cold. When we moved table it was only a little better. Overview says discount is on a la carte which it is not, had to order from a pre theatre menu which we only wanted 2 courses of and we're still charged full. Calamari was horrendous, over cooked calamari and undercooked batter. I've never experienced stringy calamari before either and my boyfriend almost choked on it. Bland is a compliment. Chicken was cold and bland, £3.50 for 4 small baby potatoes. Seafood pasta came with one prawn, gritty mussels which looked days old and was filled with prawn tail ends which again my boyfriend almost choked on. Service is added onto the original bill and not amended when the discounted bill is presented so without realising we paid 25% service which was without a doubt undeserved. Feeling Sick as I write this and would discourage anyone from trying this restaurant. "

  • Philip said: "Disappointing
    A cold venue - the door wouldn't close properly, on a freezing lunchtime. The food was adequate - delicious soup. Somewhat dry & uninspiring burger. £1.50 for 4 small pieces of bread & dipping oil. It wasn't 50% off the whole bill - and I still can't work out how it was calculated. Service charged on the full bill & not on the final figure, which is unusual. Nice waiter, but quite a bit of waiting given the place was almost empty. Overall, disappointing - I won't be dashing back, anytime soon. "

    We were 20 minutes late for our booking, but they managed to accommodate us quite quickly which was good.
    We said to the waiter we were in a hurry as we were going to see a show, and they accommodated for this as well, and brought our food out exceptionally quickly. Service was friendly, but at the same time a little slap-dash as it was quite busy. Waiter had no problem with the using of the tastecard, and we got a good deal on our meal. He offered us an alternative menu with 50% off that one as well with a free drink so had a good choice of food. Waiter even brought us the bill without as having to ask for it - he remembered we were in a hurry. The place didn't serve ice cream for desert, however waiter recommended a place around the corner, which we took him up on - very good! Generally a good place to go if you want a quick meal before doing something else. "

    Don't bother! The place was empty for a reason. The food was appalling. My fish although tasted ok smelt off and had no flavour at all. When I asked what the seasonal veges were I was told I would find out when it came out. Pasta was over ccooked with hug chunks of unchopped onion. NOT impressed at all. They kept tying to force a 2 course for £16 menu on us which would have been more expensive than using tastecard . Then again when we paid made up the bill using this method even though we had all ordered alacarte. Had to get the bill changed. Then the bill was brought back and although the tastecard discount was present on the bill they hadn't subtracted it from the total and got all shirty when we pointed it out. We didn't pay the service charge as it wasn't worth it! I definitely wont be going back! "

  • Sue said: "MOULDY FOOD
    We took our family here after watching Warhorse. Not sure if a coincidence but saw a man arriving with a delivery of the right number pizza delivery boxes to meet our meal, just before our meal arrived at the table. this included the starters along with the mains!!- useful! Also the burger and chips my husband ordered was aptly flattened- as if per chance it had been squashed into a takeaway box.
    However, these were minor issues.
    The real problem came halfway through eating the burger-THE ROLL WAS MOULDY and there was also a slimy strange coloured lump inside the burger-YEUCHH!
    This turned us all off of our food and so we left, halfway through.
    Needless to say we complained and we refused to pay anything as it was so appalling. The staff were ok-ish but not particularly bothered.
    WILL NEVER GO BACK !!! AVOID AT ALL COSTS.
    I do have a photo of the offending article which I wish I could post but it is available on TripAdvisor. "

I have tried lots of different dishes on the menu and am always impressed. The meals here are delicious. The service is always quick and the welcome from the staff is second to none. The staff give the restaurant a lovely warm atmosphere. I cannot fault any aspect of this restaurant. I have been here with lots of different friends over the last few years and none of them has ever been disappointed.

    The service was the let down. The food wasn't bad, nothing amazing but certainly not worth the full paying price on the menu - I am not surprised they have staff walking around covent garden advertising 2 for 1 pizza's. The wine was great, and usual london prices of just under £20. We spent a lot of time desperately trying to call over staff, and listening to the table next to us complain about their luke warm food. You are paying for the location with this restaurant, and not much else. Shame. "

    I booked a table for 3 for dinner on a Saturday evening and for the first time I was really disappointed with a restaurant on the taste card list.

    Their special Cafe burger was terrible and rather dry. The must was blaring so we could barely hear ourselves speaking and the waiter was clearly untrained. He ignored us a few times and was very agitated when we asked him to take our drinks order and then come back for our food order (he decided to take them together). He then lazily came to the table chewing food and seemed to be rather put out that we were asking him for our bill.

    I will never visit this establishment again "

    Tastecard can provide great value for money but in the case of Cafe Mode it's not even worth it with 50% off. Menu prices are over inflated, the food is poor and the service is atrocious. Our table was dirty, we had to ask for cutlery with each course and we were there for 2 hours just to eat 2 courses each. The kind of restaurant that gives Tastecard offers a bad reputation. "

    " Despite making a reservation in advance, we were placed (at first) right next to the entrance. With the owner constantly rushing in and out, it was quite uncomfortable there, which he must have realized and he then offered us a table in the back of the restaurant. We did not receive drink menues at arrival, so I had to grab one from another table. Service took quite a long time to take notice of us although there were hardly any other guests (Sunday evening). After that, service was quick and friendly. Food was, even for London, overpriced in my opinion. Seafood in the pasta was definitely not fresh and tasted dry. Music was too lound and inappropriate for an Italian restaurant, felt more like in a club.
    All in all, a unfortunately rather disappointing evening. "

    The food was distinctly ordinary compared to other places we've enjoyed with tastecard. Perhaps our bar is somewhat higher than other reviewers of this restaurant. We won't be back - there seem to be much better choices to go for within walking distance of Cafe Mode. "

    We visited Cafe Mode pre Theatre as it is only a short distance from the Dominion.

    The Cafe is very informal and has a relaxed atmosphere. We opted to sit at a window table but had the option to sit at one of the pavement tables.

    The food and wine was reasonably priced and the service was excellent (very friendly). The food was served quickly and each of us enjoyed our meals. My wife ordered Risotto whilst I had a chicken dish. My 12 year old son had a very tasty thin pizza which he loved.

    As stated we would recommend and will call again when next in the area, thank you Cafe Mode. "

    " Restaurant decor looks very nice in the photos. This is far from reality. The walls and general feel of the restaurant was shabby and in need of a facelift. I went yesterday with my family and am pretty sure that the prices in the menu are slightly higher than what was showing on the website menu. The spaghetti bolognaise was billed at £14.95 so really 50% off was not that greater deal! The majority of the pizzas were £12 -£14 but at least £2.00 higher than the menu on the website. We had the rocket and palma ham pizza and this was £13.95 not £11.95 as shown on the website. The pesto bread starter was pizza style but served with every other slice missing! - I mean, how much does bread and butter cost! The bolognaise was served already mixed into the spaghetti (strange) with hardly any meat sauce at all. I guess this was the idea so they could get away with serving you less sauce. Overall very poor. They added service to the bill as well! Never going back. "

    Where to start? My wife sent her food back 3 times before it was finally served hot. The only person who apologised was the manager who offered us free drinks (which we could not have cause I was driving later) but he did not take the service off the bill till I told him too despite the rubbish service.

    The staff were rude disguised as busy.
    The manager did not care since they are clearly able to get another tourist in to fill the place tomorrow.
    My wife’s food was cheap pasta (over) cooked and left to get cold with (initially cold) sauce chucked at it. My food was Lasagne made from pasta, packet tomato sauce with cheap mince, I recognised the tomato sauce since it is the same one used in my friends kebab shop.

    My wife left hungry and insisted we find something else for her to eat as the final attempt at her food was still appalling, but by that time we both just wanted to leave as soon as we could.

    If it had been our first meal out using a tastecard we would have wanted our money back, no discount would have made this meal good value. "

    The food was good for the price range, especially given the Covent Garden location. The service however was slow and unattentive, on more than one occasion the waiter was far more distracted with the group of pretty girls beside us.

    As service was so slow, we did not order dessert. When the bill finally arrived we had been charged for two bottles of wine that we evidently did not drink, resulting in a bill more than £40 over what it should have been!

    After querying the total, it was amended but I still had to ask for the service charge to be taken off.

    Overall, good food, reasonable price, very poor service. "

    Was there for lunch on a busy Saturday afternoon. Was easy to book ahead online, which is better for me than having to call ahead.

    Calamari to start, which was nice, but the mains were delicious, a Margherita pizza for me, with added chicken and Parma ham, and mushroom risotto, which both tasted amazing, along with a side of pizza pesto bread.

    As we left, we were then offered complimentary drinks, which were gratefully accepted! Good prices, great food and atmosphere. Highly recommended. "

    " Overall...

    The menu prices have set the expectation of a decent place to dine with a certain standard of service. Overall, our restaurant visit has been a bit of a disappointment - mainly due to service and atmosphere.

    First Impression and atmosphere.

    We reserved a table for three in advance and when arriving on our restaurant we have been ignored after a short notice that we will be seated. After deliberately standing in the way of the staff we have been seated on a small table which showed no reservation sign but was just left empty by previous guests.

    The table was barely suitable for the purpose of fitting a dinner set for three people. It was probably one of the worst locations to sit in the restaurant, directly next to the stairs leading to the toilets and with a cupboard containing cutlery to lay the tables for guests directly behind us. The place was so cramped that it wasn't possible for people to move past without hitting the chair I was sitting on. Of course, things like table cloths or any form of effort to make it a nice place wasn't existent (candles? matching cutlery?), but this is the story of so many restaurants in Central London. To be fair, there wasn't any space for extras on that table.

    The atmosphere generally felt a little unorganised. There certainly wasn't a lack of staff but most of them seemed stressed. Ready food kept waiting at the bar for quite a while before staff was able to sort out where to bring the food. After leaving of guests, tables stayed untidy unusually long. "Conversation" between staff dictated the atmosphere. One member of staff apparently required some calming as we was literally downing a whole glass of wine while sorting receipts.

    Food.

    We have been quickly given some menus. There was a "2 for 1" menu and a standard menu, our tastecard applied on the standard menu. Choice of food was not huge but contained standard dishes as well as creations you don't find everywhere. The appearance of a Burger section surprised me but is obviously a requirement nowadays.

    Orders felt a bit rushed, hesitation didn't seem to be welcome, and the pressure was in the atmosphere.

    The drinks came quickly - we just had water. The food arrived half an hour later which we found very reasonable - however only on top of the bar. It took at least another five minutes until the four members of staff gathering there could sort out where all the plates would go.

    As a result, my Tuna Pizza (no effort was made to name it a Pizza Tonno) arrived lukewarm. The other two of us had salad hence didn't have any issues. The pizza would have been really nice would it have just been warm, however there wasn't a generous amount of tuna on it (about 2 chunky pieces and some scratchings here and there). All in all you'd expect a bit more from a pizza costing £13.50 at that kind of place. The salads were supposedly really nice. Seems like the chef deserved to be at a better place.

    Leaving.

    We have been in a bit of a rush for leaving. A request for another glass of water (the chicken salad was spicy) has been ignored two times despite our proximity to the tab.

    After asking for the bill nothing happened. After eye contact with the waiter he contacted his colleague. Again, nothing happened for five minutes. After another reminder and five minutes of waiting we have eventually been handed the bill which compensated for a bit thanks to the tastecard.

    Overall, the staffs are not to blame but the organisation of the place. This looks like it intends to be one of these money making places with no intention to see any of the guests ever again. Even if you look just for a quick grab before the theatre, there are much better places to do so. "

    Simple, picked the phone, booked 10 mins earlier no problem very accommodative staff despite having the place full to the roof. To be honest we did not expect a lot, but to up surprise the food was actually nice, lovely pizza. Prosciutto and rocket was the treat, thin, crispy and light, nice cocktails mix and good music.

    We paid less than £100 for 5 of us (in Covent garden ) will go back again and again. "

I cannot thank the waiter enough for everything he did for us. Not only did he let us in with our dog, but they looked after us all amazingly well! Our dog even had her own complimentary bowl of pasta and place at the table! Their friendly approach gave the restaurant a lovely buzzy feel, and the food was very good too! Will definitely be returning here and would like to highly recommend to anyone looking for a friendly and personal restaurant wanting authentic Italian food. Verity   "

The service was outstanding and the young lady looking after us was very attentive and as the person who booked she used my first name throughout which I found a lovely touch. The free still and sparkling water was also nice. The food was very impressive, we had an Italian lady with us who is very fussy about her pizzas and even she was impressed. The favourites seemed to be the king prawns as a starter and the lamb cutlets for main. I definitely recommend checking this place out for a nice lunch or a cheap dinner.   Shane "

We got given complimentary liquor at the end of the meal and they even gave my friend a free dessert as it was her birthday. The location is great but as it is not in main Covent Garden it is frequented by locals rather than tourists which makes it a much more relaxing experience. Highly recommended for good and honest Italian food with excellent service. Emma   "

The waiters were friendly and were always keen to check we were ok. The food was great, and they were flexible about bringing the courses at different times as some people arrived late. The wine was flowing and we had a really good time. They were very personal and accommodating to our needs and i would definitely recommend this restaurant. With each of us having two courses each and averaging on 10 bottles of wine the bill came to £30 per person. A bargain when we were there from 8 till gone midnight. Sam de la haye "

The goats cheese starter was nice. The rest of our food was ok but unfortunately a little bland.   I've read really good reviews on here so perhaps we just got them on an off night... E "

  • "A group of 5 of us went here on Friday before going to a show and really enjoyed it. The menu was a bit lacking in description but the food arrived very quickly and was delicious. Prices were very reasonable and considering it was fairly early it was busy and had a good atmosphere. Service was good too, I'd definately go again. I'd recommend requesting a table upstairs as the ones downstairs did look a little dark. Lindsey "

  • "A truely great little place right in the heart of theatreland, Cafe Mode is perfect, great food, very reasonably priced, brilliant waiters, a family run place, completely happy about the taste card. I took my mum, along with the rest of the family, for mothers day and the bill was about £50 for four including a bottle of wine and three courses. I will be going back. Caitlin. "

  • "  Good, simple food at reasonable prices is something you don't cme across often in Covent Garden. Service somehow slow, the waiter seemed to be in a bad mood, he didn't bother to smile at all. A busy place, especially on Friday and Saturday nights, so make sure you book in advance.   Maggie Sychta "

    5 of us went for a birthday meal yesterday evening, I had read the bad reviews but went anyway. Well I don't know what their problem was! Greeted like we were old friends, given a perfect table, no hassle from the staff just laughter and kindness and lots of time to chat and choose. We all had different starters and mains on the whole and all were lovely. The wine was great, a Rioja and extremely well priced so we had a second! When the bill came we were all pleasantly surprised. All the facilities were clean and good and we genuinely could find nothing to complain about, only to praise. What a find. Ignore the bad reviews, honestly the people who left them must be mad. Or went to the wrong place? "

  • L said: "Terrible Food And Service
    After being shown to our seats, we had to wait to get the attention of a waiter to ask for a menu. We then had to wait again to get their attention to order our food as it felt like they had forgotten we were there! After ordering our food the waiter brought out bottle of wine, plonked it on the table and walked off! When our starters arrived we were short of cutlery and had to make an effort to try get the waiters attention! The waitress took away some starters while others were still eating and brought all the mains before some of us had even finished our starters! And the food was just plonked down even those who were still eating their starters had their mains plonked down in front of them!
    The risotto was terrible! Tasted like it had just been mixed with a tin of tomatoes! Could not eat it! The pasta was some over done and some undercooked all in the one dish! The lasagna had no taste! The waiters and waitresses just seemed rude!

    Avoid at all costs!! "

  • Jay said: "'Triffic Little Place !
    Been here several times over the last few years and it's always a pleasure.
    Never been an issue with the food (not sure what some people are after)
    Never had a problem using the taste card (unlike some places that seem to want to be difficult)
    Always a very relaxed and welcoming set of staff that seem to genuinely care that you've had a good experience at their restaurant.

    Last visit I had the steak which when presented looked very nice, not the largest but perfectly adequate and no smaller than you might get elsewhere. So certainly no complaints from me. Before I'd started The head guy (I presume) came over and said he wasn't happy with the size of the steak and had instructed the kitchen to prepare another. This was by no means at all necessary but the second steak duly arrived leaving me full and very happy !

    Top place in my opinion. Looking forward to going back ! "

    We went to this restaurant for a pre-theatre dinner. The food was varied. Pasta was good, but the risotto was not great. All the food was quite pricey for what it was, but no more than other places we have been to in covent garden. Good location for pre-theatre - close enough, but not bustling and overcrowded.
    The service was excellent - friendly staff who were keen to help and fairly quick. When I asked for the bill and forgot to mention tastecard, they were really quick and reasonable about refunding me the money. "

    " Thank God for tastecard, saved us 50% on what was the worst meal we have ever had. All reviews rave about the pizza and burgers, no pepperoni for the " very popular" spicy pepperoni pizza, also couldn't do a propper 4seasons due to lack of ingredients, had better burgers at Wimpy, lasagne was grim, tasteless and sloppy with grey meat, mushroom rissotto was like a ding uncle bens rice. No vinegar for chips with burger, no ice, no pepperoni, no house wine and no loo roll in toilets! Poor does not even nearly cover it.
    We hate reviews like this because it just looks like 1 person has had a bad meal, 4 of us dined and all had different meals, we are not usually picky or fussy but when you need to go to tesco for a meal deal for something 1/2 decent then something is not right. We were really quite excited about eating here based on previous reviews, money we wish we had spent elsewhere. "

    I have been coming to Café Mode for about seven years and have nothing but good things to say about this lovely restaurant. During this time I have tried many dishes and have never been disappointed. The food is always delicious and the service is fast. Café Mode has such a varied menu that there really is something for everyone here. What is more, the portions are generous! I have brought many friends here and they have all been very impressed and have said they would spread the word!

    One of the best things about Café Mode is the extremely friendly service. I am always greeted so warmly and made to feel very much at home. This makes it such a pleasure to keep coming back again and again to Café Mode. Nothing is too much trouble for the manager, his assistant and the staff. The people, the music and the décor give this restaurant a very happy atmosphere.

    Thank you, Café Mode, for some very enjoyable times. I am already looking forward very much to my next visit! "

    Went here expecting a decent quick meal, but ended up staying for 3 hours because the food was so good and it felt like you're in a lovely restaurant in Rome.

    The owner/manager was very attentive and kind, offering to do everything to make our time perfect. The other waitress was not up to this standard however.

    Drinks prices are good, and the food was exceptional. The sea bass was perfectly cooked with a delicious crispy skin and the steak cooked to perfection. The sides are maybe overpriced for how they're presented and the amount.

    Bravo! "
