Wow! The decor of this restaurant is warm, cosy and elegant. We went for my birthday meal and my family said it was one of the nicest restaurants they have been to in a long time. The food was fantastic from quality to quantity. Very good value for money with a good selection of wine to accompany your meal. The... More

Hubby and I ate at Davids last night and it was wonderful. Everything cooked perfectly, beautifully presented and served in lovely surroundings. The 'Lakeland pork 3 ways' was to die for. The fondant potato cooked perfectly and the vegetables also beautifully tasty. Great service too. Would definitely book again when in Carlisle. An absolute must. Already booked-out all through December... More

Another wonderful meal, went with friends and all can't wait to go again. Everything cooked to perfection, would highly recommend a visit. You need to book as always busy. Never hurried as tables only reserved once at lunchtime.

Every aspect of the meal is perfect; a relatively narrow ranging menu but highly creative and providing a wonderful experience of taste and nourishment. The special midweek menu has supplements for some of the items. Lovely quiet ambience in the front dining room (the larger groups seem to go into the back room). The car park is spacious; we couldn't... More

What a lovely experience we had at Davids Restaurant. We visited a couple of weeks ago on a Saturday evening and were truly impressed. The food was amazing, the ambience perfect and the staff super. A lovely young gentleman served us who was positively polite and very attentive without being intrusive. It was refreshing to see owners of such a... More

Having lived in Carlisle for over 4 years and having heard so much about this beautiful restaurant, I finally had the opportunity to go this evening. Despite being fully booked at the time I requested, the team were very accommodating and managed to fit us in for an early sitting. The team were very attentive, menu exquisite and fantastic ambience.... More

A great little restaurant. The food was cooked to perfection. There was a wide choice and everyone who dined with me were very happy with their choices. Good wine list and fantastic puddings a great place for a quiet evening meal.

The food at Davids is very good. All well cooked and presented. What let this restaurant down was the service: 1. On entering Davids you have to wait in the middle of one of the two dining rooms. Of course the people dining look at you, and you try and not look at them. You don't wait long but until... More
