Definitely one of the best meals I've ever had, and by far the most impressive menu. The food was simply exquisite, while the setting was gorgeous, containing a massive clay wood fire oven to the right of the entrance. The overall price was quite expensive, but the food and the venue clearly justified its price tag; a restaurant for a... More

We visited as a family group of 7, we had pre-booked and our table was all ready for us when we arrived. Staff were very welcoming and friendly. There is an excellent choice of dishes on the menu all reasonably priced especially if you get he early evening deal of 2 courses for £12.95. I had one of their Pizzas... More

We had a pleasant dinner here. The service was friendly and our main courses were very good. The music was perhaps a bit loud to have a conversation around a large table.

We have eaten at he Cafe du Soleil twice in the last month and each time the food was delicious and the service excellent. The choice on the menu is varied and there is something for the growing teenager and the dining connoisseur. Good wine choice and efficient but friendly service. We all enjoyed it and will return again. This... More

This was by far the best fillet steak I have ever eaten. It was cooked to perfection and the green peppercorn sauce was delicious. If you love a steak I would highly recommend this restaurant. Inside has got a lovely relaxing feel and the staff were very friendly.

I had a lovely meal in Cafe du Soleil, the staff were very friendly and the food was amazing. I had the duck confit (which I highly recommend) was perfect. Much better then the chain restaurants in the high street. Will be eating there again soon!
