Great food but the route to toilets needs attention

However when we wanted to find a good restaurant to dine with friends who were visiting us we liked the look of the menu & prices at MD's. The reception and service from the staff was excellent - the table was suitable... read more

As a local to Chester, I've eaten here, from the lunchtime menu and the evening menu. This is a gem of a venue... The vaulted ceilings create a wonderful ambience! ... The food is all handmade on the premises, generously portioned and very tasty. Prices are very reasonable, and the customer service is spot on. If you're looking for a... More

We had a lovely evening meal here, after spending the day shopping around Chester and Christmas market. We started with soup and pate and then both had steaks which were cooked exactly as requested. Courses were plentiful, well cooked and hot. A mention also of the service which was excellent and friendly throughout the evening. Will definitely call again next... More

Went to MD's for our wedding anniversary dinner. The waitress was very friendly and helpful. Thoroughly enjoyed the starter, the main course was delicious as was dessert. Will most definitely go again when in Chester.

Found this little place by accident early one evening while wandering around looking for culinary inspiration. What a find! I had smoked salmon and prawns followed by one of the best steaks I have ever eaten, I ate every mouthful with relish regardless of the fact that it was a little more rare than I would have preferred. The flavour... More

Like everything else in Chester this building appeared very old and charming. We were greeted by a very friendly hostess and shown to a table in the front window. Service was good and the waiting staff were cheerful and friendly. I had the pork and my husband had the chicken served with fresh vegetables. Everything was beautifully cooked. Thoroughly recommend.

The food here was delicious. we had Calamari and Prawns to Start and the Venison as our main. The Venison was cooked perfectly and came with a lovely Medeira sauce. It was very quiet for a Friday night but with food like this I'm not sure why. My husband was so impressed with his Venison he asked the chef over... More

Visited this lovely cafe on Easter Sunday morning after a visit to the Cathedral and stroll around the shops. It really was a lovely little place and the food was very good for the price. The whole ambience, however, was spoiled by the loud manner in which the young lady in charge was directing her staff. It was clear that... More
