Went with my girlfriend. We're both vegetarian and although there aren't many choices the ones there are are excellent. The service was fantastic. Will definitely be back soon.

The waiter was very friendly and helpful. Really couldn't do enough for us. The food was also fantastic, with a varied menu and wonderful presentation and taste. Brilliant evening.

Visited with my wife and son whilst at uni open day. Interior is a bit echoey, and Spartan, but service is fast and friendly. The 2 fillet steaks (medium rare), were the most juicy, tender and perfectly cooked steaks I have had for many years.... Great, well done chef! We'll definitely come again if our son gets his place at... More

We have been several times to this quirky restaurant and the food is superb. Staff are always friendly and nothing is too much trouble. We ate there again last night and steak was mouthwatering. Will definitely be back and would recommend to our friends and family.

I went to this restaurant with a group of friends and the service was excellent, and unobtrusive; very welcoming. The food was excellent - including good options for veggies, and people preferences were accomodated with no fuss, and the price was good for excellent quality. I would highly recommend to anyone, and will be going back.

Recently had Dinner at NICE with a group of friends. Received a very warm welcome from all the staff, who were very attentive and professional. The ambience was very relaxed and cosy. I had Seabass for the main course which was beautifully cooked and a good portion size. It was my first time to the restaurant but it certainly won't... More

We had drinks and lunch in the cafe bar. Delicious soups, sandwiches and hot baguettes. Lovely relaxing atmosphere and no pressure to move after finishing eating.
