My first visit to this lovely quirky little Italian bistro. The food ordered to start was sweet soy & Ginger chicken wings, arancini & fried halloumi. All very nicely presented, although I did find the arancini a little bland & dry. Mains were rib eye steak, sea bass, rabbit & braised beef shin lasagne. Again all these dishes were cooked... More

Well hidden on one of the main streets in Chester. Decor is unremarkable and seating a bit cramped. Started with some excellent sticky and piquant chicken wings, then a strange dish of breaded lamb which was warm served with cold aubergine. I ate it all so it must have worked but it was odd. Great selection of cheeses and the... More

We went because of a splendid carnivore and vegetarian menu and the food surpassed our expectations. Freshly cooked, huge portions and wonderful taste. And one of the few restaurants to warn about heat and mean it! Some of the best and friendliest service we have ever had and a gin menu to die for. Highly recommended

Lovely meal. Waiter couldn't have been more helpful as one of our group required a Gluten free meal. Had the ribeye steak which was cooked to perfection. Really helpful in choosing and accommodating us in our cocktail choice. I can recommend the bakewell fizz cocktail. Would gladly return.

Very disappointed with my meal (house burger and chips) but we received outstanding customer care from Matt the waiter who looked after us which we appreciated.

Arrived late morning after finding this place on four square. A quirky little cafe, it wasn't too busy and we were served really quickly. We ordered milkshake and toast with avacado, chorizo and poached egg. We also ordered a side of the homemade chips to cure our hangover. The food was really fresh and tasted and cooked well, we coins... More

I went here for the first time yesterday on the recommendation of my mum (in her 60s) and my daughter (19). I loved it. It's a bit quirky decor wise, very clean, lovely attentive service and most importantly, delicious food. The portions are the right size and the prices are competitive. I'll definitely go again.

Description
Enjoying & sharing great food, drink & conversation with family, friends & even strangers (at times) is where we take our influence from. It's how we grew up. Although our roots are firmly in Italian cooking techniques, we love all cuisines & cooking styles at Atina Kitchen & this is reflected throughout our menus.
