Good food and top service with a lovely atmosphere

Everything was good - from the waitress taking a photo of the blackboard menu (we were to far away to read it properly), to the atmosphere, to the lovely booth table, to the excellent food, and some of the best service I've experienced anywhere - friendly, unhurried (as were we) If I was being... read more

We ate at Delifonseca on 22nd August (Dockside) and the food was absolutely delicious. Really fresh ingredients, beautifully cooked with balanced flavours. Utterly gorgeous and wouldn't hesitate to recommend. Service was also good. Excellent.

Well I have never tasted such a nice Sunday roast, 3 of us had beef and the other person had Lamb. The beef was cooked to perfection, the carrots well they blew our taste buds (Apparently cooked in fresh orange, Star Anise & cinnamon) service was excellent and our waitress Deborah was very, very attentive. We all agreed that we... More

Hidden gem ...... Anyone else have a secret treat ? Once a month is "disappear on a Friday morning " for coffee and breakfast - to think and give myself some space. Staff always brilliant - beautifully laid out deli and store - brilliant for treats and last minute presents. I always go for Americans coffee and vegetarian breakfast -... More

This is a hidden gem. Situated just outside the city centre. The food is very good, as was the service. The menu is different and that's what makes this place special. Also their deli shop sells some fabulous items

Visited today for lunch with my mum. Very friendly young staff, who showed us immediately to a table, and took our drinks order. We both ordered soup, which were very tasty and filling; thank goodness we both went for small bowls!!!! I then chose to have the steak baguette, which came with salad and chips - I left most of...

I went for lunch with my daughter, who had previously visited with a friend and had excellent service. We sat outside. The service was polite but slow. I had Jerk Pork Belly which was average. The chimichurri sauce which accompanied it was unpleasant with an overwhelming flavour of raw garlic. My daughters chicken was described as average but dry. We... More

We decided to take our son and my husband's mum out to dinner and it was fab. We were sat at a table promptly on arrival for 6pm and there was an extensive menu to choose from. My husband had a thai salad which came with lots of authentic flavour, a juicy looking chicken breast and for my son he... More
