Visited Saturday evening with friends. The Caffè was quiet, only one other couple were dining, so it was pleasant and all the attention was on us . Having previously studied the menu I knew what to order and this was taken promptly . Food was good , well presented and we all enjoyed starters and mains. The main criticism was... More

Thanks very much for taking the time to review Atina . The ice cream is the award winning Backford Belles and we normally have great reviews for it but we do apologise for the presentation . We serve cheese with home made crostini as a change from the regular (we think rather boring) crackers . We have generally had positive... More

I came in after a run in the rain, the warmth of the much welcomed tea matched that of the staff. Served in a lovely china cup. First visit and will certainly not be my last. Shared with friends on Facebook to let them know what a wonderful gem of a place this is. Can't wait to try you out... More

Whenever we're in Chester we make for this little gem of a place. we've never had chance to eat here in the evening but in the day-time and for a light lunch it takes some beating. Great coffee and delicious food , reasonably priced and all top quality. I'm surprised by some of the negative reviews to be honest.. ok... More

Thanks very much for the very positive review . You are right, we do cook everything from fresh so it does take a little bit longer but we think it is well worth the wait . More

My friend and I went here for breakfast as neither of us wanted to cook, we arrived just after 9 and quickly ordered our food, drinks came but it was over 30 minutes before our breakfast arrived with our second drinks, I had the vegetarian breakfast which was all very nice, it had quorn sausages and potato scones added which...

Thanks very much for taking the time to write a review. Sorry that the food took 30 minutes - it certainly should not take that long - deliveries or no deliveries. Could you please let us know when you came in so we can investigate the matter and make sure it does not happen again . Please contact us on... More

We had one night in Chester and wanted to have a meal that was different from the normal chain fare of pizza or steak and chips. We arrived and to be honest wasn't sure if it was a cafe or restaurant. It was Halloween so they had a number of reasonably priced menu options on. The food was amazing: well... More

thanks for the great review - glad you enjoyed it . We try to be a cafe during the day and a restaurant at night. Not too easy to achieve the right image from the outside obviously .... but if anyone has any bright ideas we would love to hear them !! More

The food, staff and atmosphere in here is all lovely! Even though it's small at the front, everything is really relaxed and we had a really nice lunch! Will definitely be going back soon.

I previously gave this five stars and was looking forward to visiting again. The food was still of a good standard, but unfortunately the waitresses require further training. Hopefully next time we visit, things will have improved.

Yes, sorry, front of house staff seem to be like the clapham omnibus , none leave for a long time and then three leave at once. We are busy training up the new staff and are sure that when you visit next time they will be up to the normal high standard. The kitchen staff are still the same which... More

We visited the Atina on Saturday 11th Oct 2014. We are a group of nine ladies on a weekend break. The restaurant is a quaint tea shop by day when we made our reservation (£5 deposit each) but at night this turned in to a beautiful cosy restaurant. The menu is not wide ranging but I would say most people... More

There is a lovely quiet seating area in the back of the restaurant, and we enjoyed getting away from busy Saturday Chester crowd and having lunch at Atina. Food was brilliant, and the perfect poached eggs gave us a big smile :) Friendly staff made sure everything ok with us. The price was good, and we will definitely use it... More

yes , It's not easy to see we have another room at the back so it does tend to be a bit quieter there. Glad you liked it More
