The food at caffe lilli was amazing, a brilliant combination of taste and texture, combined with immaculate presentation. The service was brilliant, with staff greeting us at the door and ensuring we were enjoying our experience throughout. I cannot fault caffe lilli at all. Highly recommend visiting whenever, and on any occasion be it a birthday or meet-up with a... More

The hand dryer is first class. I can't emphasise this enough. It really dries those mits. They've never felt better.

My wife and I recently moved back to the UK from 4yrs in Spain and we love this place as it's a little bit of something different. We usually just pop in for coffee or maybe a glass of wine on a Friday. You pay a premium for the quality but it is exactly that, good quality. Very friendly staff... More

We had visited the wine bar opposite and decided we would give this a try. It was early evening so not too many people. We were pleasantly surprised by the surroundings although I did find it a little dark, however the food was very different which was a great surprise as most restaurants are seeming alike food wise. We both... More

We were in a party of 9 on a Saturday night. I had the jerked Smoked Salmon as a starter......very disappointing. Lamb Cutlets for my main course. Not bad, but where were the vegetables. I had about 6 of the smallest potatoes you have ever seen. Gardeners will know the size I mean. They're the one's you throw away because... More

Wonderful, seasonal menu- excellent service and outstanding, freshly prepared, sophisticated and created fare. Would particularly recommend the specials on the board as they will be seasonal/local and very imaginative.

First visit, won't be my last, to here. Slightly disappointed with the seating option given to us, right behind the front door, almost on par with a seat next to the loos! The waiting staff did make sure the door was closed after some customers left it open on leaving. Shared a delicious crab and prawn starter, their bread is... More
