    We just turned up. We said that we were going to use the taste card and they had no problem. She did say next time could you ring in advance but it was no big issue. We were sat on the best table available and had an amazing view of the runway and T5 which was nice. The food was great and the menu was plenty enough. Nothing really to fancy but what was on there was nicely cooked. We had a prawn cocktail, steak and pudding 3 drinks between us and it was only £43 absoulute bargain with the taste card. Would definatly recommend it. A little different to most of the restaraunts. Big thumbs up and
    service was excellent "

    Have seen the sign for the restaurant at the World Duty Free sales but thought nothing of it.
    Great reviews on Tastecard and thought give it a try especially with 50% off all food.
    Basic menu but really good food and very, very good service from attentive staff.
    Bread and oils for the table followed by two mains and desserts with a bottle of white Zinfandel came to £48 including added service charge.
    The location would suit families with kids who like aircraft as the outside terrace is great to watch them take off. Also great views of T5. "

    Wow, what a pleasant surprise. A hotel restaurant that is reasonably priced (after the discount) with excellent food and service.

    I had dinner here whilst waiting for my girlfriend to arrive on a flight since it's a stone's throw from Heathrow T5 (and easy for Ts 1,2,3 too).
    I had a small Padron Peppers "for the table" then the 2 course fixed price menu: red pepper and tomato soup with sourdough bread and then a very well cooked rare flat iron steak with a mound of chunky chips, tomato, mushroom & onion rings.
    Can't fault it. Had no problem using my tastecard.
    Totally stuffed as I write this!
    Excellent value at £16.00 (which was more than I needed to pay, bill was only £12.63) "

    Really great place to spend a few hours plane watching while enjoying good food and drink. Polite, helpful staff and good service. If you're vegan, try the superfood salad, I have it every time! "

    Food was ok. My wife and I both had steak which was better than expected if a little over cooked. The Cheese board was insipid and tasteless. Service was ok if a little slow.

    Not bad value with taste card but would be a bit disappointed if I'd paid full price. "

    My wife and I enjoyed a superb 3- course dinner in this restaurant. The food was excellent and so was the service. Had a table by the window with a fantastic view over the airport.

    Next morning we tried the breakfast buffet out and again it was superb and with a window table as well.

    The only thing lacking was Black Pudding!

    When you find a place like this it makes the tastecard worth every penny and is also true to the spirit of the card. "
