Super restaurant for all occasions. Roberto and staff are great. Food is fresh and tasty having many unusual combinations, especially the daily specials. Well worth a visit, then you will want to go back!

Cafe lilli is a very popular small and friendly restaurant providing excellent cuisine.The owner Roberto, serves locally sourced fresh foods and wines. He also bakes the most wonderful village bread. My only wish is to bring back the delicious creme brulee to the menu.

I think that the cost of the overall meal when taking advantage of the early set menu provides reasonable value for money however the cost when eating a la carte does not.... More

I have visited this bistro before when in the area and always enjoyed my meal. As previously we took advantage of a discounted set menu between 5.30 and 6.30pm. The restaurant is quiet at first and a friendly welcome received. The staff were attentive and helpful. The set menu has a good choice including a special pasta or risotto of... More

A shared starter of olives, bread ( gluten free option too) artichoke, aubergine etc was very tasty and well presented on a board. The risotto was very tasty slightly drier than I... More

We decided to try Cafe Lilli for our staff Christmas dinner. There were six of us. The choice of food was different to a typical Christmas menu, beautifully presented and delicicous. The staff were really attentive resulting in a generous tip (which is not like me!). Being during the run up to Christmas the place was really buzzing though was... More
