Stunning! That is it! To eat anywhere else would be a disappointment.

It was our anniversary yesterday and we wanted to celebrate going somewhere special for lunch. We chose Nova based on it's ratings on Trip Advisor but realised on arrival that we had walked past a couple of times and thought the menu looked interesting.

Not what you would expect from a small restaurant hidden away, decor aside which is nice but not to my preference, the standard of crockery, cutlery, glassware are not what I would describe as pretentious but In fact high quality and what's used in most of the high end City restaurants, wedgewood cutlery for example, it's nice to see some...

We are just smitten with this place. Dishes are so well designed and presented beautifully. Lots of extras which you would normally have to pay for including canapes and locally sourced bread (which we spotted in a farm shop in Barnston). I could not fault the service - another perfection. This is our favourite restaurant. The next thing we need... More

High quality ingredients beautifully cooked delight the taste buds once again. It is always a pleasant dining experience eating at Nova. The best restaurant on the Wirral!

Four of us visited on a Thursday evening. The early bird offer was available all night which was more than reasonable. The food & wine were delicious and the service was excellent. Would highly recommend and would defiantly go back and pay full price. Thank you to all the staff at Nova, we had a wonderful evening.

Went to Nova this week for a Dinner with wine tasting, five great courses with accompanying wines, each course was delicious and the wines from Liberty wines were superb .Superb food and wine for £55 per head, have had similar in Edinburgh , but cost me twice as much !! Best Restaurant in Heswall by a country mile

My wife and I has the pleasure to be taken to Nova on 5th March. We were unaware of the restaurant having only just moved back to the area. We had a superb culinary experience and can heartily recommend the quality of the cuisine, wine list (which was surprisingly comprehensive) and the service. The commitment to excellence that shines through... More

Food- average. Service- good. Cutlery- pretentious. Nice glass of wine. Humorous petit fours. Would not return. Be less full of yourself. Then, it is Heswall...
