Excellent food

Booked for early Friday night in January so no problem getting a table. Phoned through to see if online menu was a sample menu, bright and cheery waitress gave us a list of the specials for that evening and highlights of current menu.

First time at Janitos but will definitely be back. We had a meal from the a la carte and every dish we had was beautifully flavoured and tasty. The portions were good, wine prices reasonable and a lovely ambience. The service was excellent, friendly, professional and very helpful. Thank you for a smashing evening.

We went Fri 11.40am to find that it's Breakfast 9 til 12 then Lunchtime Menu kicks in. However the very pleasant staff were quick to say we could have either at this "border line time" (my speech marks). We chose the breakfast. Wife had Crispy Bacon & scrambled egg. I had poached eggs, both on Granary bread. The poached eggs... More

This restaurant is just excellent. We regularly call in for Saturday lunch. Food is always great. Delicious, well presented and served with a warm welcome by the very friendly staff. Always fab, hence we return time after time and are always very happy with everything. The chilli chicken wrap is always a winner with us.

I really like Janito's. A fresh, modern, yet cosy and relaxed restaurant with really pleasant, helpful staff (we even spotted one of them doing a quick dash to Tesco to get GF bread for us). Everything is fresh, tasty and cooked to order. We went for two starters for lunch - the root vegetable soup was a lovely velouté texture;... More

Was informed that Janito had new owners so gave it a try for lunch. Three of us ate off the set menu which was very good value - 2 courses & coffee for £13.50. I had a really tasty risotto to start and a nicely cooked salmon for main. The staff were friendly and we all enjoyed the meal. The... More

We stay in Knowle and eat here every time we exhibit at the NEC ... and it never fails to disappoint. The exhibitions run for three days and we have dinner here every night. I highly recommend it!

We have been to this modest sized bistro type restaurant a few times in recent years whilst working at the NEC, and have always a warm and very accommodating welcome The menu is extensive , but is interesting and all the food is freshly prepared and served with a smile Definitely worth a visit - we will be back !
