We visited David's as a party of 6 adults on a Saturday night to celebrate a special birthday. Our table was ready for us when we arrived & we were well looked after with menus & drinks. The beer my husband originally ordered from the drinks menu was not available however he chose another & it was fine so I... More

My first time here and I wish I had found it earlier, what a lovely two course lunch, in a most comfortable setting. I had the Cajun Chicken salad to start, very fresh and beautifully seasoned, followed by the Lemon Soul. Perhaps the fish was marginally over cooked, but the accompanying veg certainly wasnt, all in all it was very... More

Visited Davids for the second time last Saturday and was not disappointed. The meal was superb and the service faultless. The restaurant is small but provides an intimacy without appearing crowded. There was a minor problem with the booking and a delay in getting seated but this was of little consequence with attentive staff and an excellent meal. Would not... More

Just had another superb meal at Davids for my husbands 60th! Went on a Saturday lunch time as took two small granddaughters and thought they may be a little too noisy for evening guests.The menu is too sophisticated for small children but bless the staff they offered pasta and chicken for children which was so kind. Children didn't eat much... More

I would class this as a boutique restaurant, compact and bijou. I must say the food was very good. Service was ok, slightly slow as they seemed understaffed, when we wanted extra drink we had to get up and approach the staff. The cost worked out about £40 a head which included a few beers and one bottle of red... More

My guest and I arrived around 12 noon and I spent just over £100 including a £10 tip to a waitress who was obviously wanting to get away and told us she had her children to collect from school. She was miserable until she handed us the bill when she manufactured a smile. The lunch service is supposed to be... More

This is the second time myself and my other half have eaten an evening meal here and it was just as gorgeous as the first. Stunning food, lovely atmosphere and great staff. It's so nice to see a small business with locally sourced produce doing so well in Carlisle. We recommend David's to everyone and have never heard a bad... More

Everything about David's restaurant is excellent; both service and food were wonderful. We will return if we visit Carlisle in the future.
