Definitely not! It's more of a bar than a restaurant - the food's OK, but nothing special. They wouldn't even serve me a Caprhina as they said it took too long to crush the limes and were only doing Mojitos that night...
Being close to the station, it's a popular haunt for after work drinks and I'd really look for somewhere else if you want a quiet romantic evening.
You could try the Waterloo Bar and Kitchen? More romantic, but £30-40 per head:
Or a good Indian if you fancy something cheaper - the Imperial Tandoori on Kennington Road
(just opposite the police station) is good, £15-25 per head, as are the Indians on The Cut
The Tapas bar on The Cut
isn't much cop (although the guitar player was good) and I didn't rate the new noodle bar either.
Also, it's Chinese New Year this week, so a trip to Chinatown could be something different, although you need to speak Chinese to make an accurate booking...
