After the school run, myself and Sally hopped on to the tube along with 4 children and made our way up to Picadilly for a meal at Tibits Restaurant. It is tucked away in Hedden Street which is is a bustling side street just behind Regent Street. Filled with Al Fresco diners and people unwinding after work, it is a lovely location.
As explained on their website, tibits, comes from the words titbits/tidbits. And tibits stands for fresh, healthy, delicious food and drink.
It goes on to say ‘When it comes to speed, we’re fast food. But the atmosphere we’ve created is that of a high-class restaurant. Relaxed and uncomplicated, it’s the sort of place our customers can enjoy tasty, healthy products from early morning through to late evening.’
We were shown to our table and also the main food station which was filled with loads of different dishes each and everyone looking delicious. It was explained to us that you have to help yourself and then get your plate weighed in order for them to calculate the cost of your meal.
The restaurant had been newly decorated and the bold floral walls and coordinating cushions did give a very opulant yet cosy and welcoming feel to the dining area.
The children explored the downstairs kids corner which consisted of some books and colouring in. At an initial glance we thought that this area was a tad lack lustre, but it turned out that it did indeed keep our children entertained for quite a while!
The food was delicious, there were so many dishes to choose from that you almost forgot that there was no meat on offer. We tucked into potato gratin, wedges, cous cous salads, bean salads, aubergines, deep fried jalapino peppers, onion rings and plenty of fresh salad and bread.
It would have been nice to see some more foods that would possibly appeal to the more fussy child, like vegetable fingers or more plan foods like crudites, rice and more pasta dishes.
There was a good selection of desserts to choose from including a mango mouse, sticky toffee pudding and plemty of fresh fruit. The children enjoyed piling their plates high and tucking in.
