Very attentive staff, excellent food, very unassuming from the outside but very much worth a look. Tried Bison for a starter and Spanish Pork for a main course - both were lovely.

We went there for our daughter's birthday on recommendation from friends who had used them to cater for their wedding. Our daughter has very high expectations and was bowled over by the interesting menu, presentation and quality of food and service - as were we all including two Spanish friends who know and love good food. We all tasted what... More

We went to Nova based on the reviews I read on TripAdvisor - and it did not disappoint at all! The portions are rather small but very well presented. By the time you have a starter, mains and dessert, you are quite happily full. The food is prepared with attention to detail and care. I had called ahead to make... More

This nouveau restaurant in Heswall came highly recommended so what happened was most disappointing. We had booked for 7 and were shown to our table and served with drinks by a couple of very pleasant young ladies. We ordered our starters and main courses and the first course came reasonably quickly and was good. An hour went by and we... More

Surprised the restaurant wasn't busier, about a third of the tables taken on a Friday night as guessing Nova must have a great reputation in the area. Very impressed with the taste and presentation of the food throughout all the courses and the amuse bouche. The cheese board was amazing with 5 very different cheeses. The purple potato croquette was... More

Spent a wonderful evening in here last night. As per usual, the food was out of this world, with a pigeon dish to start, rib eye steak as a main, then a 'shared' cheesecake for dessert. The Chilean wine complimented all three dishes and the Gaelic coffee finished off a superb meal. This is by far the best restaurant in... More

Had impromptu lunch at Nova today. As we have eaten here many times, it's just one of those places that you need to keep coming back to. Asked chef Moyo to cook 2 courses of his choice, prawns to start and venison main were served. Both absolutely beautiful, most succulent prawns with garlic aioli, then the braised venison with puy...

Had never heard of Nova previously. Husband found it & booked for my birthday lunch. Top class meal. Grown-up sophisticated food, but not in the least pretentious. Delicious fresh food, freshly cooked & beautifully presented. Lovely ambience and excellent service. 100% recommended.

I can only agree with everything written below, a fabulous meal in a friendly place. Everything we had was beautifully cooked and creatively presented, including fish and chips for our two year old. Will definitely be back.

Your sure of a warm welcome. It's a relaxing, elegant restaurant. The food is described as British, and I would add: it's British at its best. It's the subtle touches: mini lamb burger (on mini brioche roll) as an appetizer had the wow factor. I love all the soups I've tried (always subtle flavour, with an array of herbs (truffle... More
