I have eaten here a few times now over the last few years and I've never had a bad meal. The food is always imaginative and so different from the other restaurants on the wirral. Some of the meals I've had are: pigeon (starter), a dish of different varieties / tastes of pork...which was incredible!! And I've had a delicious... More

Very impressive dining experience. Portions may be small but the amazing intensity of the flavours means the amount is more than adequate. Loved the triple sorbet dessert and what looked like fudge served with the coffee was fantastic...could sell that by the box load. Definitely try this restaurant.

I took my mother here for Christmas Eve. We dined from the festive menu which was unique, interesting and very enjoyable. The service was very good, not too attentive but on hand friendly staff when you needed it. What is really nice is that Nova is an experience, you dont feel like you need to eat and run. The restaurant's... More

I revisited this restaurant as I have always been blown away by the service and the food on every previous visit. I always recommend to family and friends. However of Friday 12th December I visited with family and was extremely disappointed. Firstly the wait between courses was far too long. We waited an hour from our starter to our main... More

We booked our Christmas meal at Nova, from the moment we walked in we were welcomed by all the staff. The choice of what t eat was difficult as everything sounded delicious so we all tried to choose different things so we could try them all. And they tasted even better that we thought. The pan fried scallops and prawns... More

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
