Visited on a Saturday afternoon but really wish we'd booked ahead, as the place was heaving! This is a good sign I suppose and even better demonstration of their excellent service as we didn't need to wait long for anything. Drinks, starters and mains were all very good and served promptly. Glad to see the kids still get to put... More

Although this restaurant is in a nice location I find the restaurant was very cramped with very little room on between tables and chairs, we waiting quite a while between our starter and main course ! When the food arrived it was ok but to be honest I've had better

Lorraine and I dined here tonight to celebrate my first day in a new job and were greeted by fresh new menus with some delicious additions. I had the Chef's soup-broccoli and blue cheese- delicious. A little bit of a nutty flavour and very accomplished. Then the very delish Fiume calzone-pulled pork and salami and jalapeños and mozzarella and chilli-more... More

Have visited Fiume a few times and never been disappointed. Their lunch time specials I think are exceptionally good value. Really nice food at very reasonable prices. Never had an issue with the staff or service there and would have no hesitation in returning or recommending this restaurant to others. Keep uo the good work!

No replacement offered, we had to switch seats as one was soaking after spilling the drink. Wrong pudding came out. Not very accommodating with requests no hot chocolate which they... More
