Having read all the great reviews, we were expecting rather more than an utterly unfriendly (and barely polite) service and food that I would rate as just average (we had the beef burgers, frankly nothing to write home about). No one bothered to smile and we were not made to feel welcome in any way. We will certainly not be... More

Our first visit to this restaurant and it was great. Lovely 'buzzy' atmosphere and although it was a busy Friday evening, the food was delicious and the service good. Will return soon.

I took a gamble when I booked a table for 14 at Ceno - basing my choice on reviews here on TripAdvisor. I am glad to say that the gamble definitely paid off! I took 12 of my valued customers here for dinner last night and they were all beyond impressed with the meals they had and the warm service... More

Visited Cenos with my Daughter for lunch, we arrived rather late and the staff were closing early for their Christmas party, however we were very kindly fitted in, and enjoyed a really lovely lunch, and we're so well taken care of. We had heard many comments from friends about Cenos, and it really did live up to all the recommendations.... More

We had a work team dinner and everyone was extremely complementary about how great the food was (and there were 15 of us eating, mostly different dishes). I had the fish cake starters followed by the duck - both were fantastic and I would highly recommend them. The service was also great.

After visiting last week I wanted to write to say how lovely the food and the wine were. Venue was very clean and tidy. And staff were very friendly. My food was delicious. I even had 3 courses. I cant wait to go again.
