We have dined here quite a few times over the years and the food and service is always very good. The staff are pleasant and attentive without being overbearing. I have also been here with business colleagues visiting from outside Gt Yarmouth and they too, enjoy their visits to Cafe Cru.

We had dinner in this restaurant on two evenings and the menu choices were very good and plentiful. Didn't have room for the sweet one evening! The food and service was excellent and the staff very attentive. Really enjoyed the experience of being waited on with such attentiveness.
