Just had a most delicious burger for lunch.  And, for £7.90, tremendous value.  Will be going back!

Lovely food, very friendly.




We all found the music much too high tempo and intrusive which didn't make for a relaxed lunch.

We tried the CPM shortly after it opened, back in June, so this is going to be a little out of date. First impressions were good, the ambience is nice and the staff welcomed us warmly. We found the menu limiting, I do not eat fish and so had a choice of two starters and mains were either steak or a veggy option. I gather there are now more non fish things on the menu though. The food was well cooked, but a little bland. My starter of peppers was a bit odd and was they were whole I found eating around the seeds tiresome. Steaks came with the house sauce only which was fine but I would have appreciated some choice. The staff were charming and we enjoyed our meal but felt a bit limited and without more choice probably wouldn't go back if things remained as they were. We were asked to fill out a questionnaire on how we found our meal and I gather some of these points have been addressed so we will try CPM again at some point. It feels as if it could be very good once it has found it's feet.

Tried CPM for lunch.  I thought the burger was really good.  Usually I find burger buns rather soggy and tasteless and leave them half-uneaten, but this was in a brioche which worked well so I ended up scoffing everything on my plate.  Prices were reasonable save for the tea afterwards - 3.00 for a tiny pot.  Service was efficient.  I'd go back again.

Just had a great meal here which we had to had to have early due to toddler-in-tow.

The staff were charming and helpful l, attentive without being irritating.

Food was really good- portion sizes spot on so that we were nicely full.
Hubbie had a fillet steak, I had the monk fish...both dishes delicious. Puddings great, cheese lovely...wines were recommended and spot on (dessert wine gets a big thumbs up).

However, the biggest praise is for the kids menu- simple but unlike so many places it was all freshly cooked, well seasoned and again well portioned.

We'll definitely be back.

Have to second Miss Lizzie's comments here. We tried the CPFM today and really enjoyed it. Staff we very very good and food was excellent. I went for the chicken and my wife the cheeseburger. We also tried the amazing lemonade. The chicken was beautiful and my wife really enjoyed the burger which she claimed was one of the best she had tasted. We will be taking the kids next time as they really do seem very child friendly. All in all a very pleasant experience.

Looked in the window last night, looks very nice. Interesting that it's family friendly, from the outside it seems a little slick for that. Good stuff.


Next on the list to try I reckon, I might enjoy trading N7 for SE20 after all!

First attempt not so great...Sunday lunch time...couple of steaks ok but I asked for sweet potatoes which were on the veggie option and was told no so I ordered the veggie option as well...when it came it was one sweet potato and half a butternut squash... £9.00?? Bit much I thought...all in all...not for me with all the other options around

Went in for lunch on a Saturday a couple of weeks ago. The food and service were good but it was horrrendously expensive for what it was. Also seems odd that they stop serving brunch so early on the weekends but so late in the week. I might pop in again but I'd steer clear of alcohol given the price - £140 inc service for lunch for four seemed excessive.

Went there (for the first time) for dinner yesterday, and I really loved it. The meals we had where perfect, and the staff is really lovely. The place looks very trendy, yet relaxed.

Went there for the first time last night. Was very impressed. Service was prompt and excellent and with a smile. We both had a burger - which were excellent, I had the blue cheese burger which I have to say was the best burger I have tasted on the triangle to date!


Will definitely be returning.


The (lovely) waitress also told us that fingers crossed the butchers and fishmongers will be open by the end of the month

Had a burger the other day, impressed by the quality. 


The decor is nice, it was lunchtime though so the place was very quiet and the attentive service was slightly strange!


They have a jazz night coming up too, branching out maybe.

Visited the Crystal Palace Market again yesterday lunchtime. The air conditioning was very welcome on what was a very hot day.


I had a blue cheese burger my other half had chicken. The burger was very good and the chicken made you realise just had tasteless the stuff the supermarket sells is.

Service was a little slow, a large group had arrived 5 minutes before, but we were in no rush so that was fine.


Certainly not the cheapest place on the triangle, but theres something about it I just really like. Will be back again.
