Looking for something quick to eat today in Norwich, found this place down a side street, what a gem, I do love Caribbean and creole cooking anyway, didn't disappoint, I has a lovely chilli, wife had a beautiful salmon, will be back again, hopefully for some jambalaya next time. Chef was informative and engaging, even the prices were reasonable, love... More

Organised this for a group for my sister's hen do. We were asked to pre-order as a large group and to help make sure they had the ingredients in, which actually made it much easier for a group of girls that wanted to chat. We had one person drop out and a new person join at the last minute but... More

We didn't know this great venue existed! Popped in for lunch today after we spotted it, and the food was superb, I had fillet of salmon Creole for my main and my fiancé had the Caribbean spare ribs, we had started with poached eggs florentine and the stuffed mushrooms, each dish was an explosion of taste! I will definitely return... More

We were shopping in Norwich and we're looking for somewhere for a light lunch. It was really good, well served in pleasant surroundings. Nicely lake tables. My husband had ribs and I had a starter only. It is a place we will go back to.

We had already agreed that we'd be coming back here after just looking at the menu and the spectacular food guaranteed it. The owner, Denis, is a warm and welcoming guy who does all of the cooking himself and he is without doubt a master. From aperitif to dessert every dish was packed with flavour and presented beautifully. I would... More

It was my husband 65th birthday and twelve of us went to Chez Denis to celebrate with him. Everybody, without exception, said what a fantastic meal they had. The food was amazing, the flavours really brought out the flavour of the Caribbean, especially if you also had the delicious rum punch. Denis the owner is such a friendly guy and... More

Had a great meal at Chez Denis, the food is delicious and the restaurant has a really nice relaxed atmosphere, even though it's small inside you feel like you still have privacy. The service was very friendly and courses were timed out perfectly, not rushed at all but no long waits in between courses. It was nice to be greeted... More

I do not get to go to Chez Denis nearly enough... so each visit is a real treat and I have never been left disapointed. Firstly you book your table and it's yours for the evening no one rushing you for the next customers who are hovering. The staff are friendly giving enough attention to your needs without being overbearing.... More
