I stay away from home a lot and therefore eat out a lot Billy no mates - lone diner - sad or what? I like my food, wine and beer. I don't do cheap (food) and therefore have a reasonably high level of expectation. So I stayed at a reasonably priced hotel (cheap but nice- I do cheap hotels -... More

We called into this place to catch happy hour and didn't think to book. It was quite busy but they found us a table. Unfortunately is was quite near to the door and we were met with a blast of icy air each time someone came in. But never mind, we should have booked! The waiters were prompt to start... More

Went to Davantis for the first time the other night. Pleasantly surprised by decor and atmosphere. Food reasonably priced as well as 2 done for £20 special. Desserts are very well priced! Only negative was that the soup of the day was different to what was offered and we weren't made aware until the other starters had been brought out.... More

The staff are great however when my wife sent a dish back to the kitchen because it was cold it was like we had insulted the waiters mother... We will not be returning as the food was poor and the customer... More

We strongly believe our food is excellent, but like all restaurants, at times issues can occur. On this occasion your food was returned to you and replaced with a fresh dish. But to say the food is truly awful is extremely harsh, given that the majority of our reviewers rate our food excellent. They can't all be wrong. On the... More
