Dinner at Lussmanns is a class above most others. The food is prepared and delivered with pride and your palette in mind. You could say 'fancy food' or 'food to impress' Service is good, décor is good.

Just visited this gem of a restaurant. I had the crab and toast starter, my partner had the cod cheeks. Her main was the fish cake with pomme frites. I had the sea bream with clams pomme frites and samphire. Sea bream cooked to perfection as was the samphire. Dessert for me honey and thyme pudding with caramel sauce and... More

We were a big party squeezed in for the first half of a Friday evening. Even so we did not feel rushed, service was good and efficient and the food was - as always - of a good standard. The team were very thoughtful and careful, in particular helping the oldest members of the group: this level of attention makes... More

My friend and I really enjoyed our starters of the cod loins and the crab with toast. Both had halloumi paella as main. It was ok but slightly dry and each only had a 2 or 3 very tiny pieces of halloumi in it. Waitress was very friendly, helpful and professional. Good choice of wines. Pudding was heavenly.

Probably the worst restaurant meal I have ever had. Found the choices of dishes pretty poor. Settled for the burger which was supposed to be cooked medium - it was so dry I couldn't even swallow it. Lettuce in burger was limp and had holes where something else had got there first. Burger was so cold the cheese was not... More

Description
Lussmanns is Hertford's busiest independent restaurant. Since opening in 2004, they have really come to understand our locals and what they want from their restaurant. Centrally located in the historic 'Egyptian House' (for Da Vinci Code fans, this was rumoured to have been a meeting place of the Knights Templar), this Hertford restaurant is bijou and full of atmosphere at any time of day.
