initially the exterior does not sell the offer. The decor and internal layout could be improved, but the drinks, food and service were superb. Chosing a mix of tapas dishes was easy and the quality of the offer was good. Humous was superb although the Tzatzike( incorrect spelling) was a little watery. All fish dishes - most especially the sole... More

I visit Lilicos every so often as its a good meeting point for friends to enjoy lovely tapas and catch up. The food's always plentiful and tastes great, with very friendly management! After our meal we normally head over to the bar for some cocktails, and usually stay on in Lilicos listening to the music etc! Highly recommended

Every time I come here whether it's for food or drinks I have a great time. The staff are great and friendly, the food is brilliant. Yes it gets busy at the weekend but that's the sign of a good place :) In the summer it's great to sit outside and people watch. Love it here

Met up with friends for lunch - what a great atmosphere. The food was good value, although the drinks were a bit steep.

Have previously had drinks here but as yesterday was so sunny sat outside and had a tasty light lunch. We both had deep fried potato wedges, one with veggie chilli and the other with Stilton, button mushrooms in a cream sauce. They came with a small, very fresh salad and a spicy beetroot salsa. Food was good and hot, clearly... More

Now I will start of with a positive part of the dining - The TAPAS food was lovely and full of flavour and very large portion sizes. The service however was a totally different experience to the food. It was 4pm on a Friday, so not a busy time. Staff did meet n greet and menus were brought to the... More
