I have just had lunch in this place earlier today and must say the whole experience was a delight. Inside the covers are arranged around and central bar/serving area and the décor is just right, a bit rustic and vintage. Service was quick and with a smile and the afternoon luncheon menu was great. The seafood dish I had was... More

Great food, welcoming atmosphere and friendly and professional staff! Something for everyone on the imaginative menu, as well as a choice of specials. Nothing is too much trouble for the host Roberto and his staff - a great place for meeting friends.

My first visit yesterday, and I loved it, can't believe I've only just heard about the place. Delicious food from an imaginative menu, cheery and efficient service from all the staff. Nothing was too much trouble and we felt really welcome. Will definitely be back.

We had been planning to go to Cafe Lilli for some time (years in fact) and visited last week with friends and was definitely underwhelmed. The actual place is ok, but the food was definitely average and the wine on the expensive side, plus the staff and managers needs to learn to smile.

We had both eaten at Cafe Lilli previously and have friends who eat there fairly regularly and recommend it. We called in for lunch near the end of a journey from home to Gateshead. On arrival there were a few customers but there were plenty of tables. We were seated and given the Menu; the "Specials" Board with its items... More

I had lunch here with a friend. I felt the restaurant was overcrowded, and we were crushed in to a very small space. Normally like many "ladies wot lunch" my friend and I like to take our time and chat. However, in view of the crowding, we did not feel sufficiently comfortable to linger. I don't feel inspired to visit... More

My husband and I (!) visited this restaurant on Saturday night. My friend bought me a voucher for my birthday; best present ever! I have been to cafe lilli before but the last time was probably about 13 years ago. I am pleased to report that during the intervening period the standard has remained the same. As others have said,... More

Beautiful and stunning food. If you are in the middlesbrough area come here for an exceptional experience. The menu is seasonal and relatively small but watch out for the specials on that day. In restaurants that do not specialise in steaks I usually go for fillet as sometimes the steak is not top quality. Here, I had a rib-eye steak... More

I hadn't been to cafe lilli for almost a year so i was delighted to find that the food and service is still excellent. Smoked salmon pate followed by one of their specials, john dory was delicious. House wine is very good value. Atmosphere buzzy and relaxed. Keep up the good work.

Lovely food & wine at very reasonable prices. A continental ambiance with art work from local artists on view for sale. The menu is limited but in a good way as all produce is fresh & delicious.The house wine was good too.
