"The food was excellent and my seafood starter and pork belly main were works of art as well as being delicious. A nice touch, they save your table for the interval if you haven't had time for dessert or want a drink. The restaurant was full but service was efficient and pleasant from Oscar our waiter.

We will definitely return next time we go to Mayflower Theatre."
