The food was excellent - very tasty and flavoursome and the atmosphere was lovely.
It could have been more generous with the portions of bread - 4 tiny slices for four people and even having ordered a second portion, it was a bit light.

The portions were perfect really, especially the main dishes. Quite noisy but in a good way as led to a nice pre theater atmosphere. Revive was excellent and staff very attentive

We booked this & had a confirmation phone call 2 days prior, expected 5 pm on 20th November.
On arrival our table was not ready, for over half an hour. No drinks offered or advised how to get one whilst we waited , a verbal apology only provided.
I note on their terms of book ing that a phone call To say you are more 15mins late or your table may be let to someone else…….
The food was lovely & the waiter helpful.
A poor start to this meal.
Wonder why we book a table at a specific time, when they can not Accommodate you…………

We visited as a family group of 8 for lunch. We had no idea what to expect as it was our first time but had a superb meal. The food is fresh and full of interesting flavour. Plate sharing is encouraged. The beef carpaccio as good as I’ve had and the sea bass was perfect. The vegetarians were happy with the choice available. Great service in a relaxed atmosphere. The ambience is casual - more like a cafe in decor than a restaurant. Recommend.

Delicious food. Great mix of dishes. Wine recommendations were enjoyed. Lovely atmosphere. Service was very friendly but think they may have been a little short staffed as we had to wave to have our water & wine glasses topped up a few times. Overall great visit would go again.

We went to the Monmouth kitchen for a lunch catch-up - the food was exceptional, as well as the service. The venue was perfect for a catch-up and would have no hesitation in recommending this to friends and family

Somewhat underwhelming. Ambience good, nice decor. Toilet way too dark and moody. Food ok ish but for the price I can’t call it good value. Polite staff and prompt Friendly service. I would like to say I would be back but I won’t, simply because the food isn’t at a level I would make a detour for.

Monmouth kitchen is situated in a hotel. The design is chic and the staff are lovely.
The menu is Peruvian and Italian that serve small portions and no sides available or on offer. A simple side would compliment the meal and bring more value to the menu. The food is decent. I’ve experienced better calamari, cerviche, and pan fried salmon, beef fillets at lower value establishments unfortunately. The sauces are great and full flavoured. Attention to seasonings and cooking processing to main element of dish is required to improve the standard. My salmon had no salt or pepper and was over fried. The calamari was fried beyond a crisp.
The ambience of the restaurant along with the staff brings a great deal to dining experience. One huge fail is the available restrooms for patrons and hotel guests. It’s extremely dirty and human faeces very visible and the drench unbearable. No clean facilities.

The best thing about this restaurant is the location, decor, and staff. So much potential

Portion sizes are too small. We ordered chicken skewers & that is all we got it would have been more value for money if they came with a salad or pitta bread.

A nice restaurant with great decor. Whilst the food was tasty and service was great, I can’t help but feel it’s a little bit on the pricey side for what you are getting.

Exquisite food and attentive service.

I have been coming to Monmouth Kitchen for years now and since my first time to now the food has never disappointed, both sides of the menu Italian and Peruvian provide delicious dishes to entice all. The truffle pecorino tortellini, robata smoked paprika ribs and the cafe almendra are a must have....as is most of the menu but they are some of my faves I encourage you to try. The staff are always so polite,knowledgeable and accommodating. I have recommended the place to many and none have been disappointed.

Delicious food but poor front of house service. Had booked a table for 10 and spoken to the restaurant team twice to confirm numbers and table location, explaining importance of all being at the same table. When we arrived, we were seated at 2 tables at the bar. After a lot of stress we were reseated, no apologies offered. So in summary great food, but very disorganised, unhelpful front of house team. No manager in site.
