Our fifth visit and it was as good as ever. We had the eight course tasting menu with matching wines and we thought that the wine matching was some of the best we had ever had. The attention to textures and temperature of the food adds an extra dimension to the experience. We look forward to our next visit.

This maybe a bit out of it for some but we enjoyed getting away from the madding crowds in a unique location with canal boats cruising by. There we only three or four tables all couples on a Saturday night. Great chef, wine list was excellent and the service first class. Romantic dinner.

Went here for a birthday meal having had it highly recommended by a friend. We had the 8 course taster menu with matching wines. I very much enjoyed the evening but did feel it was lacking in a couple of areas. Let me start with the good bits: The food. Very well made and well prepared food, tasty and well... More

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
