Would call in here every now & then & ive always had very good food in the past but was slightly disappointed today as the presentation was rather poor & the food itself was abit undercooked,,though edible..but couldnt fault the waiting staff as they were very friendly & pleasant

This restaurant attached to the eclipse cinema does American grill style food. Named after Marilyn Monroe, a lot of the dishes are themed around American personalities. We've been a few times and it's exactly as you'd expect of similar establishments...it's not Michelin started, but it's well priced and the food is well presented, tastes good and the portions are large....

Woeful... don't bother going . Kids chicken gougon were rock hard and fatty . A hair in the fries . My steak sandwich meal was cold . Wedges were hard in the middle. I wish I would have went somewhere else, anywhere else !

Took my mum and for once didn't check out the trip advisor review! Boy did I regret that! Big bowl of stir fry which was not fresh. They serve you little glasses of soft drink so you have to order 2 or 3! Will not be back!

Don't go here Pre booked our table and pre booked our meals 2 weeks in advance. Not that on the night the place was busy. Still they managed to mess up the orders. When we got our food it was cold and even the burger baps were solid. No issue when we complained and meals were discounted and even free... More

Great friendly service. American themed cafe. JFK room and Marilyn Monroe references. Decent grub served quickly. P enjoyed the peppered chicken and I had the spicy burger. Good value for money and a nice way to round off the evening after the movie.

Called in with family. Staff very friendly and super smilers. Ordered two adult and one kids meal which were very tasty and delivered quickly. Definitely a big recommendation for this cosy diner. Would be worth checking the super efficient AC as it can cool the meal quickly. Next time we will ask for chips to be well done. Great music... More
