The food was OK Nothing really special and I thought pretty expensive! Although booked well in advance my party had to sit in the basement searing area. Not at all impressive

Thanks for your feedback. We do have a daily 12-7pm set menu (2 courses for £12.50/3 courses for £14.95) that you may feel is better value. I hope that you'll give us another try. Kind regards, Andrei Lussmann (andrei@lussmanns.com)

Enjoy the set menu with wine for a monthly lunch with the missus. Enough to feel like it's a treat but not too expensive to not make it a regular visit. Love the steak and frites and love the mix of starters.

Thank you for summing up what we’re all about – a value-driven ‘classy but classless’ sustainable alternative to high street chains – and good to know that this is appreciated. Best wishes, Andrei Lussmann (andrei@lussmanns.com)

Visited on a Friday evening. Fish and Chips were lovely. Great service as well. All round good experience. Booking is required as the restaurant was very busy.

Thank you for your complimentary review. We were recently winners at The National Fish and Chip Awards 2016, so it’s reassuring to hear that standards are being maintained. Do come again soon. Best wishes, Andrei Lussmann (andrei@lussmanns.com)

So after 15 years in Hertford, and the missus harping on about it for years, I finally got taken there for by birthday and savoured this legendary place. It was quite quiet for a Friday lunch (told it gets booked up and busy quite quickly)....More

I have eaten here several times and it never disappoints. The homemade fishcakes are my favourite and the wine list is excellent. Thank you :)

A nice generic restaurant although a little small. Upstairs is nice but can be draughty in the winter. Downstairs recently decorated and nicer than you would at first think. No room for pushchairs...hooray! Adult centric, probably the only Hertford restaurant that is. Good service and...More

Parking is nearby but not so clearly signposted. It's easy enough to find but getting back to a car park, not so easy. Fairly limited menu but food was hot, served with attention and reasonably priced. Atmosphere ok and we would go again if in...More

Good to know that our food, service and value all impressed. If it helps for a future visit, the nearest car park is Gascoyne Way, with access via the Post Office walk alleyway. Best wishes, Andrei Lussmann (andrei@lussmanns.com)

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.
