It is a travesty that this place hasn't got 5 stars. The food is varied and offers something for everyone. I'd never had lambs tongue before, and it was a revelation. Tender, almost gamey meat, with a crispy exterior, with little bursts of clean freshness from the curds. My oh had the raveoli, and as an earlier post mentioned it... More

To anyone who gives much credence to the detractors of this restaurant I would say this: We have just enjoyed 2 excellent meals there in 8 days and we wouldn't have gone back if it wasn't excellent. Don't expect a Michelin-starred experience - this is a bistro but a very high quality one. Between the 5 people who visited on... More

I have reviewed this restaurant before but it was a few years ago. I went there tonight with my husband as he had never been. The menu is varied and suits all tastes. My husband chose Crispy Lamb Tongue which he loved and I had the Roasted Beets with Sticky Walnuts which were heavenly. He then had the Belly Pork... More

Tried to post this review at the end of July but the 'app' didn't play ball. Finding it hadn't gone I felt the restaurant was so good it should still be posted! 5 of us went on a Tuesday night for my daughters birthday. Starter of roasted beets with sticky walnut dressing was beautiful as were the starters the rest... More

After hearing about Sticky in a review by Marina O, and following them on Twitter for a few months, I must have shown my boyfriend so many pictures that he finally got fed up and booked us in for my birthday surprise last night. Chester isn't a massive hike from Leeds and there's enough other stuff here to make for... More

We went for Sunday lunch and enjoyed the food & atmosphere so much, we went back with friends for dinner a few weeks later. The premises are small and the style is very relaxed & informal but the cooking is some of the best we have had in the north-west of England. Lambs tongue starter in particular stands out. It's...

This restaurant, in the Hoole area of Chester, is excellent. The staff are attentive without being in your face. They are all knowledgeable about the food and serve well. The food is out of this world. As good as any Michelin starred restaurant we have visited. The wine is a little expensive and expect to pay around £50 per head... More

They shouldn't be allowed to serve food this good!! Called for a table, answer phone!!! They called back and apologised they were full for the date i'd requested, but they could do the following week, great, I'll take it. Crispy lamb tongue for me, pigeon for my husband, after tasting both I couldn't decide who'd made the better choice, sublime!!... More

Had a lovely meal with some very good friends. The service was great and the waitress was spot on with the wine recommendation for us. We had a beautiful fresh Alberino which complemented my hake ceviche beautifully and a wonderfully smoky Negroamaro which again paired beautifully with my lamb and potato salad. Topped off with the strawberry semifreddo and Champagne... More

I live in Bristol and how i would like to transport this Bistro there. I took my mum here for her 80th birthday with my 82 yr old dad and my partner mandy who has a few food-fads. I'm also hard to please when it comes to restaurant meals- if I can do it better myself, then it gets the... More
