This was my second visit for a five course taster menu this year and again it didnt disappoint. Yes, the atmosphere can be a little lacking compared to somewhere like Edmunds but the food and service are both excellent and i will be back again!

I have been very fortunate to have dined at several Michelin restaurants so was really looking forward to dining at Loves for my anniversary with my husband. My first reaction upon entering was a total lack of ambience and felt I was sitting in a lobby. Absolutely no atmosphere or intimacy for a restaurant that is clearly pitching itself to... More

My partner and I dined last night (Friday 31st October) and had a great evening. As another review mentioned, it was not busy which was surprising for a Friday. Mind you it kept the volume levels low and added to the dining experience. We chose the 8 course tasting menu with accompanying flight of wines. Although not a cheap option... More

We dined at Loves tonight on an impulse. We had not eaten here for a couple of years but its slightly out of the way location led us to overlook it until now. We had the five course tasting menu and I had the accompanying flight of wines. Although the restaurant is an easy stroll from Brindley Place it is... More

Travelled for 45 minutes for a special night out with good friends tonight to celebrate my birthday. Chose the 8 course taster menu with the accompanied wines at £ 130.00 per person with high expectations ... In very good company I really tried my hardest to enjoy myself and the food , however , my Fois Gras came wrapped (... More

My wife and I came here to celebrate our anniversary. The restaurant is located next to the canal, and the interior is very relaxing with soft sound of romantic songs. We chose to have a 3-course lunch menu, which was very nice. The food came in perfect timing, good portion and tasty. The service was excellent as well. They gave... More

We visited on a Friday evening on a groupon deal. I had heard about Loves so using the deal was a great way to give it a try. It's a little tucked away but we found it ok. We had a 5 course taster menu. They had to make a minor adjustment for my husbands allergy which had been advised... More

I took my wife for a birthday lunch last Friday, having heard about and walked past the restaurant many times when my daughter lived nearby. We weren't sure if it was open when we arrived, but it seemed that we were the only diners which seemed strange for a Friday lunchtime, although the location is a little remote. It's not... More

Went here with friends and had a great meal. We had a 5 course tasting menu and every course was delicious, the wine was excellent and the service was great too but the only reason I've not given it 5 * is because for me, there is just something lacking about the whole experience. I'm not sure if it's down... More
