Consistently nice food, highly recommend the pork. Also the cocktails are fab. The thunder and lightening ice cream is amazing and we would definitely go again.

I've lived in Lancaster for 8yrs and have never been to this restaurant. I went last night with my work colleagues and have absolutely no complaints. I didn't have a starter but others did and the portions were very generous. I had the swordfish steak which was recommended by the staff and it was beautiful...try it! Attentive service and reasonably... More

You can wax lyrical about the splendid fusion food the NICE chef cooks up, I particularly like the pizzas and the house wine is surprisingly delicious for the price. The best thing, however, is the NICE bar because you don't need to ask for a cocktail menu, you just state your case and your wish is their command. Pop in... More

Handy location, lofty architectural setting. Attentive, helpful staff who were knowledgeable about the wine and dishes available. Most importantly delicious, authentic Italian pizza and pasta. We used a Groupon voucher and so found Nice economical. We will enjoy eating in the restaurant again. i use the cafe regularly with friends and family.

I would recommend this restaurant and hope to return but there are some small things that could be changed to improve things. 4 of us ate here and all enjoyed a 3 course meal on a Saturday evening. Firstly it was obvious that the restaurant was understaffed. The waiter was fantastic but was absolutely rushed off his feet. How is... More

Visited here last night after a 12 month gap in visits. We used to regularly eat at Nice but became increasingly disappointed with the quality of food so stopped going. Decided to try it again after reading encouraging recent reviews however we will not be going again soon.. My husband chose the mushrooms Alfredo for his starter which was nice.... More

We went here to try the Tastecard out, and were really impressed with the standard of cooking. We had main meals from the special board, skate and lamb, both good quality. Puddings were amazing as well, try the sticky toffee pudding, yum!! The waiter was very helpful in deciding our choice, and very attentive throughout the meal. Th only criticism... More

Really good menu choice, and one of the best steaks we've ever eaten- just beautiful. I couldn't fit a pudding in so went for the Espresso Martini 'dessert cocktails', which was amazing!! The waiter recommended the cheesecake for my partner which was huge, and delicious. Fantistic waiting on staff- very friendly and passionate about the restaurant, and quick to make... More

There are two parts to NICE in the Storey Institute. Both offer fresh food at reasonable prices. The Restaurant offers formal dining, the Bar is like a cafe. The Bar is where lots of locals meet up for a coffee, and it has lots of coffee styles to choose from. They have fresh cakes and tray bakes, plus very good... More
