Top Quality food and Service

Dined here midweek early evening. Adequate menu choices The 10z Rib Eye was excellent full of flavour and well matured didn't have time to linger but a convivial atmosphere to the place and will visit again when more time allows

we went for a bite to eat not so long ago, we were seated on a long seat right in front of the kitchen, there is a large window like area in the wall so if you are standing up the kitchen staff are visabli to everyone, at the end of our delicious meal we were getting ready to leave,... More

Steve I know you were really upset not to get a position within Café Lilli as a chef , but to write a review which quite honestly is slanderous was very petulant childish and re enforced our decision not to employ you. There is and was no reason for you to slander one of my members of staff and especially... More

A nice little café on Norton High Street, I went with a friend for lunch. We didn't book, and the place was empty when we arrived, but soon filled up after we were seated, so I do recommend booking as it seems to be very popular! The staff were very friendly and the service was excellent. I had the goat's... More

We visited on a relatively busy Friday lunchtime. There was a convivial and bustling atmosphere about the place, and the staff, including the proprietor, were affable. Although nominally a café, Café Lilli is more restaurant than café, and is, I imagine, as relaxing in the evening as it is during the day. Indeed, the food was good enough to compete... More

Honoust cuisine without a "wow" feeling. Probably one of the better restaurants in the neigboorhood but this has more to do with the neighboorhood than with the restaurant. It is supposed to be Italian inspired. I recommend to stay with it and do not try to experiment with Indian or Thai of whatever. It confuses. OK to go with a... More

Evening was excellent, food, banter with the waiting staff, chatted to Roberto... More

Thank goodness I booked a business lunch in the very popular Cafe Lilli as I didn't want to chance missing a table but hadn't really reckoned on its popularity at this time of day. Being fascitious this wasn't populated by coffee drinkers but genuine foodies of all ages. As I am dieting I selected a very meaty chicken dish with... More

I took a lady friend to this "cafe" on her recommendation, as she lives in Norton. We didn't book, but as it was 6pm, we managed to get a table. The waitress staff were the most pleasant, efficient and helpful I have come across for a long, long time, a pleasant change to some uninterested premises. We both ordered the... More

Having been to cafe lilli more times than I can count I used to be a big fan. Having been twice in the last 2 weeks, I don't think they're on top of their game. Last week, my pulled pork wrap wasn't pulled pork at all. Chopped cooked pork similar to the size of lardons. It tasted ok but wasn't... More
