“Relaxed and top class”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013 via mobile

Was there for breakfast. The gourmet menu is very interesting all day. I ordered a maize fritter stacked with scrambled eggs, chorizo and salsa. Very good presentation and very tasty. Service attentive. I will be back, want to try those luanch menu items.

“Very Impressive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2013

I had heard about Licorish from a few people and decided to try it for myself. It lived up to its reputation and more! The staff were very obviously well trained and attentive. The specials of the tasting platters are an excellent idea, and gives you the opportunity to try a few different flavours when you are spoilt for choice as I was. I asked for the wine list, and was told there isn't one, and that I could choose from the wines they had on display. I was a bit put off by this to begin with, but ended up thinking it was just as well there was no wine list. They have many very unusual wines available, most of which I had never heard of before, and I run regular wine tastings. Well done, and please keep the standard high.

“A master chef restaurant experience!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013 via mobile

This was really surprising. I was impressed by the service and the food. It is a nice restaurant, more stylish than I'm used to. The specials were a fish and a fillet tasting platter, that came with wine to compliment it. It was a fun interesting dinner. Just having an option like this educated us on how to match a wine with a specific meal. It's seems like small portions, because its like you see on tv. Elegantly displayed. But it fills you up. I enjoyed my meal and recommend you at least try it just to experience fine dining!!
