“Very Tasty.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

Loved my Ploughmans lunch. Very tasty and a bit different with a slice of Cornish pie. Food was reasonably priced but I was charged £4.80 for a pot of tea for two. Staff didnt seem very happy but there were only two of them and they were very busy. On the whole a very agreeable lunch.

“Just fabulous!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

This is my favourite place in Chester, has been for months! I've recently had to move for work and on the days I know I'm back in Chester I actually plan what I'll eat!The food is just delicious, there is a really relaxed, happy atmosphere and always a friendly welcome! Great value for money and so much food to choose from, ah if Gasrto Deli could just branch out to Crewe I'd combust with happiness!

“trying to be something it's not”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

to state this is 'fine quality' food is plain wrong. a squirt of balsamic syrup doesn't make a meal taste good. the roasted vegetable and salmon lunch i had was terrible, the peppers and onion (which made up the veges) were warm but raw (definantly not roasted) and the tiny piece of salmon was dry and full of bones. then there were salad leaves topped with a tomato salsa, since when do you serve veges AND salad. it seemed to me they were trying to fill the large wooden board to make it seem like value for money. very dissappointed when you try and support local business.

“The Hidden Jewel in Chester's Crown”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

After searching the "cafe quarter" of Chester on Bridge Street, for somewhere to have lunch we came across the Gastro Deli on Commonhall Street (take the alley way opposite Cafe Rouge) and what a lovely surprise it was. The food is absolutely delicious and cooked in front of you, all ingredients locally supplied too. Owner and staff very welcoming and accommodating to all dietary requirements and the atmosphere is so relaxing and happy. Will definitely be going back there again very soon. You cannot visit Chester and not experience Gastro Deli. Top food

“Chester's hidden gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012 via mobile

No idea how they can produce such great food at their prices. We eat here at least a couple of times a month and are never disappointed. Everything is freshly prepared and made to order - it's well worth the wait if the tables are full. Made to feel welcome and valued on every visit. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend.
