We've been going to the Blue Legume for several months now, we have a tradition of going out for breakfast/brunch before the weekend grocery shopping. Despite having gone for so long, and being served by the same people week in and week out, I find it appalling that there is no connection or acknowledgement from the staff with their customers. Having had family involved in the service/restaurant trade for many years, this service is vital. The food is good, no doubt about it. A particular favourite of mine is the hash brown breakfast but the service is horrible. Today was the last straw. Having stood in the entrance for 5 minutes with no queue in front of us, we decided to walk out. Countless staff members walked past, back and forth, some of them were just wandering around, not even dealing with customers. We were not acknowledged whatsoever. I have no doubt they'll continue to be successful as they are very often busy. I guess that's what you get when you churn out business the way they do. Oh, and the main hostess needs to learn how to smile. She also needs to learn that people see her and how quickly her expression changes when she turns away from the customer she is serving.

Have been here a number of times now with friends and my partner. The food is lovely and the atmosphere is great. We have booked in for this Valentines Day. Would definitely recommend.
Loved the decor and atmosphere and it's also very child friendly but those scotch pancakes came from a plastic packet that I could see from my seat. They got dry and hard after two minutes!!! Gluten free cake was very good.
We really like the atmosphere, ambient and the service! Great prices and amazing dishes, especially sea food is very well cooked! Became one of our most popular restaurants.. Definitely RECOMMENDED:-)
