It was my first time here, and to say that it looked and felt drab, depressing and unwelcoming, before the lights were dimmed for dinner and few white table clothes added, would be an understatement. It has a look of a bad, dated, slightly sticky,...More

I walked in the restaurant on my way back from work at 8:10pm, well dressed, carrying my bag with my laptop and iPad. I asked the staff if I could sit in the back of the restaurant (totally empty) and use my laptop or iPad...More

Visited today at lunchtime with my granddaughter who was fast asleep in her pushchair. Despite only three tables being occupied we were refused entry and was told to leave the pushchair outside with her in it! Totally "shocked" is the word. Company policy we were...More

Service was slow, and although the atmosphere of the place was rather fancy (and the prices expensive to match...) the food was a big disappointment. My meal (goulash) was extremely oily, burnt and had chewy beef.

Occasionally, I think there should be some time limitation on listing these reviews. Places change hands and the restaurant I commented on back in July 14 is no longer. A refit leaves it looking bare and miserable, with amateurish staff, some it seemed with non...More

A long standing Little Venice eatery, popular among locals including me, Raoul's is a popular venue for breakfast, lunch, teatime or supper. Or even just drinks. Its been going for many years and is deservedly often packed throughout the day. Most varied is the "all...More

We have been to Raoul's many times, but really disappointed with the food and service we received this morning. The staff was really slow and unfriendly. The food ok and the coffee just terrible. Really needs some attention.
