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

Only open once a month for Sunday lunch so get booked. Wonderful ambience, great background music from a very subtle and talented singer and then the food and ice cold wine. Fresh tomato soup, the type that's thick and full of goodness with goats cheese crostini, started me off. Then rib of beef with delightful goose fat roasted potatoes, jus... More

Wednesday evening just after Christmas and new year, so you have to expect most places to be fairly quiet. Can be difficult for restaurants to create a good atmosphere when everyone has just had the excitement of the festive period and now they're suddenly much less busy (cafe Lilli has always had a really nice atmosphere on previous visits) but...

This is somewhere we go several times a year because the standard is consistently high and service always good. the only downside is that at peak times the noise level is really quite high due (I think) to the lack of soft furnishings. This does make conversation difficult although eating the food is no problem!

Superb steak and enjoyable lively Friday evening in this bustling bistro, will come again. A little pricey in comparison to other restaurants around but quality of food and service is excellent.
