Very good

I last visited on 1st May with a friend (who I've gone to Paulo Giannis with before and we didn't rate it too much) however that night was much better. It was busy but we got seated quickly. We ordered drinks straight away but they didn't get to our table until 10 minutes later. We had a starter to... read more

As we've dined here before we knew in advance that this was a popular and lively restaurant and bar. We met our party in the lovely cocktail bar and had our first drink in a lovely booth. We were a party of twelve including the birthday girl and my birthday boy husband. The waiter was a lovely patient chap and... More

Was in Paulo Giannis the other day. We were seated instantly without a reservation as it was quiet (only 4 other tables in) so we thought we would get served quickly... This was not the case! We waited 20 minutes just to order our drinks after trying to get staff attention for 15 minutes. The food was good once it... More

Visited last week. Atmosphere and the staff were great but a few problems. Got in and had to wait a while for a table we had booked in advance. Had our drink and food order taken and some of the good had arrived before our drinks! One drink came and we are told the rest wouldn't be a minute.. 40... More

Don't like giving bad reviews, but think this is deserved. Called in at 5:30 on spec, having been shopping in Lancaster with our son. He has eaten there before with mates and said the food was good. On entering we were asked if we had booked, which I thought was a bit odd as the place had just opened and... More

I've been a few times now and sometimes it's been really great and other times a real letdown. This Friday it was the latter. There were quite a few issues. Firstly, we hadn't booked (we rarely book) and so we turned up at 8.45 to a busy but nowhere near full restaurant. Getting a table was easy and then we... More

The leg of lamb dish was absolutely fantastic. It just fell off the bone. It was cooked to perfection. Friendly and comfortable atmosphere. Very much our favourite restaurant at the moment.

First time visit to this restaurant. Friday lunchtime and after shopping in Lancaster went for lunch. We were very surprised at the number of people dining - couples, families and solo diners. There was a 'specials' menu, or the standard menu with items marked HH which indicated these dishes were at half price during the lunchtime period. My husband and... More
