Considering this restaurant didn't have more than 4 sets of customers in, it was a surprise that the service was not upto scratch. Drinks service was slow, and the restaurant appears to have a limited range of meals available. Not told that certain things had ran out until it came to ordering the meals which was disappointing and should have... More

I attended the 40th birthday party and found that Adrian and the staff went out of their way to assist me. The food was of excellent quality with a very wide range of choice. Something for everyone. On the whole a very "nice" and pleasant place to spend time over an excellent meal.

Adrian & the team at NICE helped me to organise a surprise 40th birthday meal for my husband. At all stages of organisation & planning they were cooperative & helpful. When it came to feeding 33 people, the meal & ambiance were excellent. The meals were all delicious. I had fillet steak, medium rare, and it was amongst the best... More

Visited here and had an absolutely fantastic meal, they take highlife cards which is an absolute bonus. My husband had the shrimps and a tuna steak - and he said they were the best he'd ever had. I had a salad and it was beautiful - there is a lovely choice of wines too - a must visit.

First impression is of a poorly decorated space. Dirty Windows, curtains tied in knots and painted stripes on wall surfaces which does nothing to enhance the grim atmosphere. The menu was interesting but the aubergine and lentil Moussaka seemed to be devoid of both these ingredients and was unrecognizable as a moussaka, served as a loose stew in a basin... More

Visited on a Friday evening the food was great, I'd highly recommend the antipasti platter. The polite staff made from a pleasant evening! All in all a great restaurant!

My wife and I have just had another excellent meal at NICE. I always have the lamb because it is so tasty and last night was no exception. A large piece of succulent lamb with a mixed berry and mint sauce. I find it hard to believe the previous reviewers. I've never had a bad meal and I've been there... More

nice décor, staff were pleasant enough, service a bit slow even though there were only 4 other people in there. Don't have the pizza, mine was burnt on the bottom and had to ask for a steak knife so I could hack my way into it. Way too much cheese on the top, my poor olives were swimming in cheese... More
