"Fantastic service and a wonderful atmosphere. Food was great, and there are some good winter specials running at the moment."
"Unfortunately we booked a set dinner menu for Valentines evening. Having only seen great reviews for 5 Rooms the expectation was very high. Everything that could go wrong did on the evening. Post starters, we waited 2 hours for our mains, when it arrived veggies were raw, steak was overcooked, missed puree and salmon was undercooked (raw). Desert was served (chocolate fondant) overcooked and dry - we did not finish the desert. Eventhough we asked during the night what the problem was, not even the manager could inform us. It seemed to be a general problem on the evening with all tables. It was not a good experience. *The restaurant did call us two days later to apologise for the terrible experience and offered us vouchers to reimburse our experience."
"Very impressed. I've eaten at Five Rooms in the past and wasn't blown away but the standard was far better this time. The group of four were all very satisfied. My main (beef with sweetbread and foie gras) was excellent. Amazingly beautiful building just rounds it off nicely."
"I had heard good things about 5 Rooms so I decided to book for our Anniversary. I'm so glad that we picked 5 Rooms. The venue is stunning and we had a table outside. The service was one of the best I have experienced in CPT. The food was stunning and very reasonably priced. After dinner we had drinks in the Rose Bar which has a nice vibe. If your looking to spoil a partner then you can't go wrong with 5 Rooms."
"What an awesome evening. The food was fantastic, the service really top notch. There were 10 of us, so a challenge to keep everyone happy at the same time. These guys did it, though. Great stuff. Will be back again. "
"Beautifully presented dishes in an amazing venue. The service was absolutely impeccable and made for a wonderful evening. Definitely recommend."
"5 Rooms is stylish and sophisticated. Had the duck for main - Delish! "
"Awesome food, service and bar to hang out at before and/or after dinner!"
"A wonderful venue, with superb food and good service. We were a bit disappointed when we got the bill and they charged us for the "birthday cocktail" which we did not order and go placed in front of the birthday girl when she arrived. Otherwise, a good night out."
"5 Rooms is a restaurant with an interesting history and this certainly adds to the experience of eating there. The food is excellent as you would expect and we were impressed with the winelist. The service was noteworthy and we had a very enjoyable evening. "
