Went for lunch to Cafe Lilli for our anniversary. The food and wine were excellent and the staff are very friendly and attentive. The food made a change from the usual run of the mill menus.

I have reviewed cafe lilli previously and it has been a favourite of ours for a lot of years. I felt that our experience this evening was worthy of comment. As usual the frequently changing menu contained some exciting possibilities, however the owner Roberto mentioned that they had bought in some fresh squid which had been shipped up from the... More

The beer they have on tap I am yet to find anywhere else, a fantastically fresh and tasty but deep lager that is hard to find. The bread on the table came with... More
