Top local bistro

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.

We were taken by friends as a special treat. I understand Lilli has a live jazz lunch each month, and this was one. Though the resturant was very busy, we found the atmosphere friendly and well organised. The food was excellent, with a European flavour and a few I unusual choices for a Sunday lunch time - eg. lobster. It's... More

Brilliant food and service. They couldn't do enough for my sister and I and the risotto was to die for.

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 & seemed genuinely interested in their customers.... 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
