Re-visit after disapointments last year

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... read 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

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
