Jana is charming as front of house and moyo is an excellent chef ( forgive spellings) We have been several times to Nova and have enjoyed it immensely so much so we have brought friends and family with us on subsequent occasions. There is always something original on the menu to try and it is always delicious . You always... More

We were shocked to read Holly P's review of Nova, Holly if you are reading this are you sure you clicked on the right restaurant as there is another with a very similar name. The reason why I say this is we have been visiting Nova regularly for the past 4 to 5 years and we would not have done... More

We ate here on 2nd July for the first time. It had been recommended to us and we were not disappointed. Excellent food, really nice atmosphere and first class service. Lots of nice little touches. Reasonably priced. If you are thinking of trying it out, don't hesitate! A perfect birthday night out!

Wow! A stunning restaurant that serves outstanding food that you can tell has had love and masses of attention lavished on it before it arrives and is presented to you. The service is great and it really is a jewel to behold amongst many mediocre restaurants that don't come close to Nova's standards!

Having done all the Telegraph Road usuals, we decided to try Nova for a birthday meal-and wish we'd discovered this place before! Very deceptive outside-you would walk straight past-but inside was just lovely. Modern decor, friendly staff and met the owner before we ate. The Sunday lunch (£15 for 2 courses, £20 for 3) has just 5 choices per course,... More

Simply the best prepared and presented food for miles around and always something to surprise in a friendly, quiet and spotless restaurant that won't break the bank. We've been coming here for years - it's our first choice to take friends and family - and if you like any of the above then you'd be hard pressed to find any... More

Food was like dog food. never will eat here again after being here my daughter was very sick. Staff were horrible and snappy. Very unhygienic. Should be closed down due to being an uncleanly place. If your going to eat in heswall avoid here.

An absolute gem of a restaurant. Pleasant attentive staff serving lovely food. Started with haddock fish cake followed by sea bream and finished with just simply the best lemon meringue. Highly recommended.

Visited here for the first time with my daughter, her fiancé and prospective in-laws, who are regular diners. They all raved about the restaurant so we were really looking forward to our visit and we were definitely not disappointed. Staff are very friendly, the amuse bouche and fresh home- made breads provided whilst we were perusing the menu were beautiful.... More
