My partner and I booked this for our 25th Anniversary and were not disappointed!

From the start to the end we were made to feel very welcome. The food, atmosphere, ambiance and experience was great from start to finish. The staff were brilliant and really friendly.

There is nothing that they could have done to make the dining experience any better. From the first warm welcome to the goodbye it was delightful. The food was outstanding, the service fantastic. A joy to visit. Just need to find some time to come back now!

We had a lovely evening at cafe vin cinq, the staff were great and went beyond the normal service. The food was delicious and the menu was varied and unique. We dined upstairs and the atmosphere was relaxing. They also accept taste cards and so was great value for money

My dad and I went to Cafe Vin Cinq for my 21st and it was absolutely lovely. Quality of the food was incredible, and I was pleasantly surprised at how easily they catered for my vegan diet requirements. All of the food was so yummy and the wait-staff provided really attentive service which made the experience even better!

We went last night and it was stunning. Goat cheese and salmon starters arrived quickly. Scollops and rump steak were cooked to perfection. We also had sparkling wine and coffee. Although no room for the puddings. The cheese boards looked amazing. The restaurant was busy but still had an intimate atmosphere. We then went upstairs to the cocktail bar and... More
