We have been twice here and both times, very good food, great service, lovely décor and friendly staff.Quite pricey but worth it for that special occasion.

Always a relaxed experience with beautifully cooked food with homemade bread, an appetiser to begin and handmade chocolates or similar to end. The service and attention to detaIl is consistently good and we feel very lucky that we live so near and can walk there and enjoy a peaceful quality evening!

I've never been anything less than impressed on any occasion I've been to Nova. It's a lovely restaurant, tucked neatly away from the main strip of restaurants on Telegraph Road. We dined on Saturday night with a friend who was over from Leeds. The restaurant was already busy when we arrived, having booked earlier in the week. A pre-prandial glass... More

From start to finish we couldn't fault the food, wine or service. Only regret is that it has taken us so long to try! We will be back.

It was our first visit to Nova after hearing good reports from friends. We decided to go for a late lunch and I can honestly say we were all really impressed. The service from our waitress was excellent and she recommended a gorgeous bottle of rose. We had 3 courses as we just wanted to experience everything, the food was... More

We decided to go here for our 1st wedding anniversary. The overall experience can't be described anything other than excellent from the pleasant booking over the phone to service and of course the food. We got seated and were presented with amuse bouche. The service was respectful and struck the right balance between friendly and formal. Crab meat starter and... More

We visited Nova for a birthday celebration! The atmosphere and staff were brilliant and the restaurant had a relaxed and cosy feeling about it. We were presented with canapés whilst deciding what to order which were delicious. We had a three course meal and the food was spot on and the presentation was also fabulous. After our meal we were... More

I wanted to take my mum to somewhere special for lunch and had eaten at Nova before. It is a truly wonderful dining experience. The attention to detail is outstanding. The value for money is amazing, I would have paid double. A true gem, very very impressed.
