Yummy food

Have been here a few times and the food is always really nice. Had tapas this time which I shared with a friend. It was delicious. The staff were very friendly and gave great service even though they were very busy. The barman knocked up a mean cocktail :)

We'd been here once before and had lovely tapas, so decided on a return visit on a Saturday lunchtime. We were seated and drinks menus bought over ........ eventually then some food menus ........ and eventually then we were asked for our drinks order ...... and then eventually asked for our food order. Not a great start :-( The food... More

Having previously eaten at Abby's many times we booked a Christmas Evening dinner for 9 people. We booked, pre-ordered the meals and paid weeks before as requested and had been assured we would not have to rush from the table at the end of the meal as the table was booked for the evening. On arrival we were seated opposite... More

My daughter and I booked a meal to have a girlie evening and catch up. We arrived promptly and were shown to a table, we asked to change it and were immediately shown to another one. The menus arrived and drinks orders were taken quickly, and arrived equally as fast. We were given time to peruse the menu and the... More

I sometimes treat myself to an English Breakfast here. Although my title states it's expensive I must admit if I have to pay plus £7 for a breakfast in order to find a good one I will. Fried Bread is on in and hash browns are out. Well done Abby's for sticking to the traditional English Breakfast. Service great, lovely... More

This restaurant is down a little alleyway off a main road in the town of Grimsby. Although it is on the small side, the food is excellent. Pricey, but well worth it, as the quality of the food is top notch. The interior is very nice too, as are the staff. Very nice for a special occasion too. You can... More

Very clean and tasteful Bistro with excellent staff. Have eaten here several times now, with different choices of food, and have never been disappointed. Tables by the windows are cooler than opposite the cooking area, which is well organised and partially opening into the reception area. Anything from the menu is freshly prepared in the partly open kitchen and cooked... More
