My husband took me to David's as a treat and it really was. On a wet January night we had a delicious meal with service that was just right. We will definitely be going back.

We visited David's one wet Saturday evening in January as a couple for an early meal as a last minute decision. We were first in and had our choice of tables. We were showed to a lovely quiet table in the main area. We had visited David's many years ago when the two David's ran it and hadn't been back... More

My wife and I have just eaten there tonight along with two friends and we found the food and the service to be first class. I can honestly say that it's the best restaurant that we've eaten at in Carlisle, we can't understand how anyone can criticise this restaurant as it was sheer perfection. Can't wait to go back again.

Seven of us ate here for our annual golfers' dinner and again the food was top quality. It never fails to please. Very good menu to suit most tastes and the food is really well cooked and full of flavour. For us ideal sized portions so we left feeling well satisfied but not too full. These size of meals helps...

We were looking forward to eating at David's, as it had been recommended as one of the best restaurants in Carlisle. Unfortunately, it didn't really live up to expectations. As we arrived, we were led to a basement room which felt like a dentist's waiting room - large television on, no ambiance whatsoever. The dining room itself was well decorated,... More

We've been here a few times now with the girls from work and it has been spot on every time! Lovely food and friendly staff. The Lakeland beef is just gorgeous.

I went with a friend for Christmas Lunch & we could not fault the meal or the service ! The food was Excellent, we had the Smoked Haddock Souffle which was delicious, followed by the Trio of Pork - scrumptious ! We couldn't manage a Pudding and opted for a coffee which was serviced with mini Mince Pies, a very... More

Had my work Christmas meal here and although the food was nice enough it was nothing special. We asked for a jug of tap water for the table and I was shocked to see they charged us £1 for this on the bill! Service was ok but no one came to see us out and we had to go and... More

runneyhoney, Owner at David's Restaurant, responded to this review

This seems to be an underlying gripe about our service charge for large parties. The majority of customers would rather we had a fixed amount so everyone's on the same playing field it's 10% of the food bill so on our set price Christmas menu the maximum would be £3pp. I think you have misread the bill we don't charge...

Have been to David's at least three times this year and each time have had a super meal. The service is excellent and the atmosphere is very welcoming and relaxing. There is good variety in the menu and presentation is real quality. Can get very busy so it is advisable to book well in advance.
