Rotunda is a smart addition to the limited Kings Cross restaurant scene. Its smart design and outlook over the canal, coupled with the sleek bulk of the Kings Place arts centre make it an attractive destination.
Service while we were there was excellent, very attentive and generous. Food had a British slant and seemed hearty on the menu but quite small when it arrived. My lamb was very good and a chocolate brownie with vanilla ice cream to finish delicious.
Food was well priced but wine seemed expensive. Being offered it two wine glass sizes, plus 500ml carafes was a nice touch.
My one real gripe is the lighting. They have made a classic mistake of trying to light a restaurant entirely from the ceiling. This never works and only low, soft localised lighting makes a place feel cosy. The cold lighting from the ceiling coupled with the blue upholstery gives a rather austere feeling at night. I recommend a few candles to sort that out.
Overall a nice place and worth checking out – Can be casual or used to impress.
