OK - so it wasn't a 5-star restaurant but their food was always good and it had the perfect atmosphere to have a light snack and drink while waiting for arrivals, or to fly out. I'm not a huge fan of Mugg and Bean food (they're more expensive than the Landing Strip was as well) so I have to say... More

It's very basic and average. For such a small place it's hard to get the waiters attention. I eat there every time I fly. Really just to pass the time.

Good food and fast service. Situated at one end of a very large and noisy terminal building, it is not exactly cosy.

Great burgers! fries were nice. Vegetarian options also tasty. But very slow service and a bit inattentive.

Why else would you go to a cafe bar at an airport? It's just a basic place but good cold drinks and the food's pretty nice. You'd never go out of your way to go there though unless you are waiting for someone to land!

Perfect when waiting for friends or colleagues to arrive with a view of the runway or while you are waiting before going through security (there is NOTHING airside). I found the service quick, friendly and attentive. Coffee is reasonably priced given the monopoly and location at the airport. The also serve snacks, sandwiches and some main dishes.
