Six of us came here for a friends Birthday Lunch to celebrate. We have eaten here before and the food is consistently good. Again we enjoyed our food but when the bill came we were shocked to see we had been charged £7.95 for a 175 ml glass of savingnon blanc NZ white wine. We had two glasses in total.This... More

First time eating here this evening. Surroundings pleasant, nice atmosphere, waitress very accommodating. Pleasing menu with some different combinations than other similar competing restaurants. Had carpaccio of beef, chicken saltimbocca and ice cream. All very pleasant and the prices were reasonable and very much on par compared with other chain restaurants nearby. Will be going again soon. And to cafe... More

A group of 10 of us ate here for dinner on a Friday evening and I can only congratulate all the staff for making the evening such a pleasant and memorable experience. The venue has a great deal of character and is warm and welcoming. We started with nibbles moving on through starters, mains and then on to deserts enjoying... More

I came here during the week with a couple of friends after hearing others rave about it. We had the sharing platter to start which was yummy, followed by the rump steak. The steak was cooked to perfection and melted in my mouth. The ambience of the restaurant and service from the young waitress simply added to our delightful meal.... More

I've visited Cafe du Soleil several times over the past year, and it has never failed to impress. Superb food beautifully presented and clearly composed with a real creative imagination and an appreciation of good ingredients and flavour.....highlights include the Salmon and Crab fried sushi starter, and for mains Teriyaki Duck Breast and Beef Brisket. I also had their rump... More

We are booked again to say goodbye to a colleague soon because the food is always great and we just love the restaurant. Each visit has been a success and the staff are wonderful!

We visited as a big group. The staff were friendly and helpful and everything was really tasty. We did have a recurring theme though, some of the starters could be described at best as warm (but we just ate them anyway, were still tasty) and one of the mains was in the same state but was sent back and a...

Had a wonderful meal here on a freezing February day with family. The welcome was wonderful, the waiting staff lovely and the food amazing and excellent value with the lunch time set menu. Can thoroughly recommend the wood roasted chicken, the Italian sausages, trifle, cheesecake and sticky toffee pudding. The coffee (Lavazza) was cheap and really excellent too. Cannot recommend...
