Penelope Restaurant is our restaurant of choice when attending either the Royal Alex or the Princess of Wales Theatres. It has good food and at a moderate price. Wine selection is also good.

Bland food although not entirely awful. Bet cheeky waiter looked at our bill and handed it bs k to us stating that they expect at least 15% gratuity. Needless to say won't be going back.

Food without taste. Maincourse served before eating apertizer. Mouzaka served with rice. Strange. Poor service. But the water was good. We won't visit Penelope again.
