Had wanted to visit this restaurant after reading the good reviews, but what a let down. The menu is quite limited of choice. Had the terrine for starters, assumed it would come with bread or toast, but no, this had to be ordered as an extra. The bread was stale, so asked for fresh, but was again given stale bread.The...

We have visited this restaurant on many occasions, often calling in for a drink during the day, when they serve delicious light lunches, and we have enjoyed the evening menu or stopped by for a night cap many times, indeed I have reviewed this establishment previously. As my previous review states, the decor, ambience , cleanliness and attentiveness of the... More

A fantastic night at Chryselios! Went with friends on a Wednesday evening and had the tasting menu to share. Food was fantastic and beautifully presented. The wines on sale to compliment the food worked extremely well too and I am not normally a wine drinker. Staff attentive but not OTT and made us feel very welcome. We had a table... More

Had a fab night out with excellent food - first time eating there have only popped in for a coffee which is easily the smoothest coffee in town. The entertainment was a duo called Bella Luna and although not all music was to my taste they had the entirety of the restaurant all toe tapping, clapping and eventually up dancing.... More

My fiancé and I were told to try this restaurant by my parents and I have to say we were not disappointed. We originally tried to book for the Saturday so we had some entertainment but they were already fully booked so we booked in for the Friday instead (booking well in advance is definitely key). I'm quite a fussy... More

The owners have no idea how to treat their clients. We booked a table for 2 at 7.30 last Saturday for dinner and show. The waitress had already given our table to another couple who had started their meal. We were offered the only other table for 2 people, placed directly underneath the act’s loud-speaker and only a rear view... More

Upon reading your review I would firstly like to apologise for the mix up in tables as we had a waitress working on the night that was new to our table plan. As you I am sure would be the first to agree it would have been rude to have asked the people who had mistakenly been seated at your... More

Have recently visited this fabulous restaurant with friends and I am pleased to report that John and Maria continue to provide an excellent service - excellent food which is well presented, a friendly atmosphere and, during most weekends during the summer, first class entertainment. Really liked the Chef's taster menu last Wednesday evening.

Amazing food and staff, loved the menu tasting day on Wednesday. Fantastic entertainment. The restaurant itself has a lovely layout and is very clean. I will definitely be returning next week for another great evening. Thank you to the owners and the staff for a lovely evening :)
