The pioneering restaurant that kick-started the social scene again in Norton village. A nice, pretty restaurant which boasts a French-inspired menu. It's a little pricey compared to the other restaurants on the High Street, but I've always enjoyed my meal when I've been there. Potential downsides are the menu itself, it doesn't vary very often, it would be nice to... More

Parking not easy here but food was nice. Just popped in for coffee & sandwich but ended up with rissotto. Was not disappointed. Not big portion but very nice. Would certainly go back

Very elegant presentation with their range of food and drinks, warm and inviting atmosphere, friendly staff members, and decent service. Have to say it is fairly costly but on special occasions it's great... Would go again :)

Went there for lunch with a friend. Had the smoked salmon sandwich with side salad. The salmon I expected to be the raw type and it was crumbed steak. It was ok and the salad was nice. I thought 5.95 for a small glass of wine was excessive. Service was good. The place was not busy, so not much atmosphere.... More

Hello I have just read your review with some surprise and I feel I need to respond We do not have Salmon sandwiches on our Lunch menu or even on any of our menus at the moment and we do not charge £5.95 for a small glass of wine. Maybe you got us confused with another restaurant? More

We had the tea time special menu - excellent value for money. The quality and portioning were excellent. A delicious meal. We have eaten here many times - the menu is always just that little bit different and the staff are always friendly and helpful. Cafe Lilli has remained consistent for years.

Roberto is now in full control and the food is as good ever as is the service ! Would recommend a reservation as it was very busy even on a Weds night ...... well worth a visit.
