A hidden gem

Both the food and service were very good. Atmosphere and lighting were just right - not too bright as it was in a nearby Italian restaurant (where the staff were also very offhand answering a query). The bruschetta, lamb souvlakia and tiramisu earned the approval of my husband, the tiramisu he... read more

I think the owner needs to listen to her staff. Who are wonderful The food was of a fair standard but I would not say all of the menu is value for money. The waitress was very helpful and informative. The speed of service was also good.

What a fantastic place! Food was superb. Started with bruschetta with beans. This was great - a nice beans on toast. I then had calamari with chorizo and my wife had gnocchi with spinach and gorgonzola. Dessert was tiramisu and salted caramel ice cream. Overall a brilliant meal! Highly recommended.

Have been here a few times over the last few years when visiting malvern with work colleagues. Food is always top class, always fresh and great range of choice. The Sauvignon blanco was to die for. We prefer to sit upstairs as find there is a little more atmosphere. Definitely be back next year.

We found this gorgeous little restaurant by chance after a less than satisfactory encounter with Benedictos a little further up the road. Wonderful location, peaceful and with ambience. Nothing was too much trouble, service was exemplary and the food....... Simply delicious. Highly highly recommended.

A lovely Italian restaurant, with a surprisingly broad menu. There was a specials menu too, which I am sure will vary by season. For a party of six there was plenty to chose from and all freshly prepared. There is a lovely outside courtyard which we were unable to use due to the most unbelievable thunderstorm, but with climbing and... More

We have eaten here with friends a couple of times before attending the theatre and have enjoyed our meals. It seems a small establishment but there are more tables upstairs and on a warm early evening you can eat in the courtyard at the front. Service is timely and friendly. The food is Italian and it's worth looking at the... More

We just popped in for coffees having booked lunch elsewhere. There is a large fig tree in the peaceful courtyard. The atmosphere was very relaxed , the music was good but subtle. The menu looked good and the cooking smells were wonderful. We will return soon to eat.

What a great find, just off the high street in Malvern is a little courtyard which houses the The Fig Tree bistro. We had a great lunch sat outside enjoying the sun, the service was quick and slick and the ingredients fresh. We had home made tomato and basil soup, fish cakes, muscles and pasta...all for a reasonable £48. Fantastic,... More
