Four of us aate here and the menu selection was good. Food was well prepared. Service was poor and we had to ask to order. Attitude of some of the staff left a bit to be desired. Will look to go elsewhere in future.

Called in for lunch whilst visiting Kendal for the day. The restaurant had been recommended to us by a worker in a local clothes shop. Wasn't disappointed. Friendly staff, lovely atmosphere, quick service and the food was delicious. We had pizza and garlic bread from the special lunchtime menu. Will definitely return if in the area again.

Nice place and comprehensive menu, with happy hour discount before 7pm on some dishes. The spicy rib starter was very nice and the spaghetti meatball main was great and huge!!! Turned out that even though we ordered well after 7pm we still got the discount!!!

Very family orientated which is a surprise for Saturday evenings. We were shown to our table that we reserved earlier on in the week. It was quite busy so it was no shock that it took a bit to get a drinks order in. A good selection of drinks available and we were able to sample the wine before we... More

We have eaten at giannis many times over the years often taking advantage of the happy hour deal and always enjoying it. I would go as far as to say that it's one of our family favourites. We went on Saturday night and had a totally different experience. The manager Gordon was clearly having a bad day and he needed... More

Ate in this restaurant last night. Gotta say that the service and food was first class. I had the chicken livers and pizza. My partner had the king prawn starter and lobster ravioli. All cooked really well and very fresh....flavours were amazing. Priced very well. We will definitely eat there again.

Thank Andrew P
