We were visiting from Canada and based on Trip Advisor reviews tried this restaurant. Very friendly family run restaurant and as mentioned in other reviews they made us feel very welcome. We shared a plata of meze which was plentiful and delicious. We had 3 lamb and 1 vegetarian dishes as main courses and all were piping hot and very flavourful. We would definitely recommend and return if we were ever back here.

Booked a meal for a group of 4 friends after Reading good reviews but unfortunately was a bit disappointed. Fishcake and cauliflower panna cotta starters OK but bland and pate tasty but not particularly worth the price. Main course steaks were fatty but accompanying chips great. Trio of lamb variable the shepherd pie was delicious but the other pieces of lamb were tough and sinewy. Overall the food was acceptable but didn't warrant the bill of £274 for 4 starters, 4 mains, 3 puddings and 2 bottles of wine. Service OK as we did feel the whole experience was rather rushed.

Modern French & World cuisine in the heart of Windsor, just 200 meters away from the Castle. Exciting freshly prepared homemade food, created and served under the guidance of Chef-Patron Andre
Perhaps our experience was the exception that proves the rule--the mediocre meal among the glowing reviews. We were two well dressed women there when the restaurant opened and were seated and served with disdain. We made the mistake of ordering the early bird dinners and were horrified to realize that they were reheated from lunch (we check the lunch menu to ascertain this). Our friends had a good experience the next night. But excellence requires that experiences like ours not be permitted to happen.

Established in 1988, Tummies has grown considerably over the years and now encompasses not only the popular Restaurant, but also the Bar, Cookery School, Chef's Table and a number of versatile Function rooms (for private and business events). Privately owned and operated to this day by Claude Mariaux, his passion remains the same: to serve serious, unpretentious food with great personal service in a cosy and comfortable setting. All the food is cooked to order using the best quality and freshest ingredients, and the Restaurant Menu comprises some of the good old favourites, such as "Fillets of Pork in a creamy mustard sauce", "Steak, Mushroom & Guinness Pie, Butter Mash - not forgetting the dram of Sherry!". Vegetarians and Guests with Special requests are always well looked after and nothing is too much to ask for at this friendly local! Homemade Sandwiches and Salads can be taken away or eaten in and don't miss the exceptional cooked Breakfast (Served 7 days a week). Hold business meetings or celebrate your birthday, Hen Party, retirement or leaving do etc in one of the Function Rooms which can accommodate up to an impressive 100 people! The Cookery School is at the back with numerous courses on offer for either a beginner or an accomplished cook. These make the perfect gift for both the Gents and the Ladies! And if all of this is not enough The Chef's Table is a must for a really special celebration! Sit around the beautiful Maple Table, where the cooker is in-set and your own chef will prepare and cook a bespoke Lunch or Dinner for you and your guests right in front of you. So whatever your Catering needs, just pop in to Tummies! We look forward to welcoming you!
Lovely evening and we were all happy with our food.
The service was amazing, and especially from Joe who was professional and friendly, and catered to our every need by being attentive yet not overbearing.
I'm gluten and dairy intolerant and Joe checked my order several times with the chef to make sure that my meal was within my tolerances.
We'll be back. Thanks Joe for making my sister's birthday meal a very enjoyable one.

Our passion for "simple, honest, food using only the finest ingredients" continues. Serving dry aged 35 day hung Aberdeenshire steaks and a large choice fish and shellfish. Windsor Grill is a real gem, just a stone's throw from Windsor's Long Walk and two minutes from the town centre. A warm welcome greets any visitor, a cosy ambiance is created by pretty wall lights and table oil lights which gently illuminate the abundance of wall hangings and soft furnishings.For meetings and social gatherings our private dining room is stylish and a discreet hideaway. Open Monday to Saturday dinner from 5.30Pm
Had a lovely meal at the Windsor Grill - our first meal out as a couple since having our baby so we had a lot riding on it and really wanted it to be good!!
Chateaubriand, wine and cocktails were all lovely and the staff were fantastic, very friendly, knowledgeable and attentive (they even offered to move our table when a large, loud party came in - much appreciated).
Windsor suffers from a lack of nice independent restaurants, but Windsor Grill fills that gap nicely, well worth a visit.

You'll find The Alma just 5 minutes walk from Windsor town centre tucked away on a charming Victorian red brick terraced lined street. We are a traditional English pub serving a range of beers, ales, fine wines and great food....The size of our portions are legendary. We also have the largest beer garden in Windsor, great for those hot summer days and evenings, should we see them! We are conveniently located for Heathrow, the M4 and the M25. The Alma is full of antiques and collectable's including: furniture, paintings, pictures, mirrors, ceramics and interesting knick-knacks We also have a collection of rare film posters and are constantly adding interesting and unusual items to The Alma. It's like pubs used to be and, in our opinion, should be.
My husband rang on Friday to book a table for 1pm saturday to include his elderly mother (92 years). Explained the need for parking and advised we could park in the neighbouring street after 1pm.
When we arrived at the pub we looked at the menu which had a smaller brunch menu on top. When we queried this, we were told that the lunch menu did not start until 2pm!!!
Pretty ridiculous situation and we only received a half hearted apology. We left and went to a more accommodating venue and unfortunately won’t be back. A real shame as we’d had lovely food here in the past.

Came here tonight with my father, who had this beautiful place recommended by a work colleague. I have to say, without a doubt, this was the best Thai food I have ever had. I've been to Thailand, and never since have I had good like it until I came here. The food is second to none, the services is fantastic and the restaurant is understated but beautiful. The lady who runs it recommended dishes to us, and we couldn't have been happier. Now a regular - will definitely be back! Thank you so much.

Rosette attained for year 2014
Sorry guys, but just didn't work for me on the second time either. I thought I would give it another chance on my way through.
A lot of the dishes have a raw spice taste as if the spices haven't been cooked through, and added as an afterthought, either that or far too much star anise makes a meal taste like a mouthful of liquorice and Pernod.
I get the feeling they are trying to distinguish themselves from most of the Bangladeshi fair available on our high streets, but they try too hard. A well cooked Vindaloo or Madras is worth ten badly cooked Curried Venison.
I would say 80% of my reviews are positive, mainly because I love well cooked food, and the trouble some establishments take to present and serve it. I find this place impersonal (although it is a transit hotel) and not to standard food wise. Contrary to other people on here though, I found the service excellent.

Formerly known as The Dining Room at Stoke Park. Executive chef is Chris Wheeler. The restaurant is now open to all and not just Club members.
3 course meal for 2, was absolutely fantastic. Had a pre-dinner drinks in the bar, with freshly made cocktails, which we were not rushed to finish. Dinner was served in a beautiful decorated room which over looked the magnificent golf course. Our food was marvelous, every dish was full of flavor, and the staff very attentive.
