Great food & friendly service

My partner & myself went Friday for our evening meal. The cafe was near enough full & my initial thought was 'woah, it's noisey'. We could barely have a conversation. The staff were really friendly though and quick to serve our drinks & beautiful food. They made every effort to make you welcome... read more

We have eaten here many many times and I have to say it is my favourite restaurant in the area. Always a friendly welcome is received, very busy on a Saturday but if you are happy to wait you can grab a drink at the bar. Menu is changed regularly and always a varied choice and specials are displayed on... More

We have been eating here for a number of years on and off. We have noticed that over the last year the quality of the food has really improved and after our meal tonight thought i should finally write a review. The menu is always pleasantly varied with at least a couple of things we want to try. The midweek... More

Fantastic. Will come again and again and again. Large portions made the mistake of having a large starter and couldn't finish my main course. Great service.

Came back to the Café Lilli which had been one of my favourite eating places in Teesside but had been very disapointed with the food and also the service last year so decided to give the place a miss. However last month we thought we would give it a second chance and pleased we did. The food, wine and service... More

Our first visit and certainly not our last. The food menu here is relatively small compared to other establishments, yet the quality and options are fantastic. Traditional Italian inspired dishes, with a combination of influences from elsewhere in the world. Having visited Italy many times, it definitely brought back memories. The restaurant itself has a very classy, yet relaxing vibrant... More

Four ladies, that very much like to 'do lunch' had a wonderful 'first' experience at this restaurant. Only one of our party had previously had the experience, but it was sometime ago. I had heard friends reviews before and wanted to book for our lunch party. We were greeted immediately, offered a choice of table and escorted to the area... More

Visited on good Friday for dinner. Staff were lovely and welcoming and the restaurant itself is delightful. There were a number of specials and a fixed price menu on top of the regular bistro menu and there was something for all budgets. The food was simply excellent some of the best I've had anywhere in the world. Price was very... More
