Awful food, called tapas but cold whole mushrooms in grey water do not count as tapas to me. Not interesting or exciting food in the slightest. Sat in a cold cellar with bad acoustics.

I felt very welcome the moment I arrived. I didn't wait long for food and was asked how every course was, it was so busy but staff were focused on everyone present. It's a great setting and I can't wait to pass through again and catch a Music night there during dinner.

Stumbled across a gluten free blog which mentioned Lilicos and thought we'd give it a go after a day in town. So glad that we did. This is how eating gluten... More

Having not been for a while, me and some friends decided to go for dinner at Lilicos and have a tapas evening between three of us. We started with the garlic bread which was huge and moist between three of us, which was great value considering. We then picked 7 dishes between us, all of outstanding quality and well worth...

We have just had terrific Tapas here. What a find, fabulous food, simply superb service, excellent value for money, mellow music whilst you devour the delectable dishes of flavoursome food. Thank you to everyone that made an evening very special.

I'm a big fan if this place - I visit for lots of reasons but usually to meet people or between meetings for coffee. It never disappoints.

Had a great meal at Lilicos. Really friendly helpful staff, great choice of menu, fast service and lovely food. Really reasonably priced as well. They even provide cosmetics and toiletries in the loo! Really nice touch. Great meal.

My husband and I visited Lilico's after reading some really good reviews. We weren't disappointed. We both commented on how the tapas was the best we've had in a long time! The cocktails were lovely as well, very reasonably priced. We will definitely recommend this place.
