We met family for Saturday lunch here. What a surprise this restaurant was. The menu was different options of small tapas like portions or main meal portions. Everything we had was lovely the staff were brilliant and the bill not at all excessive. I would recommend this restaurant to everyone .

My wife and I had a rare evening together so went here. We have been before and thoroughly enjoyed it and felt it was time to revisit. They have remodelled some of the seating which looks great. The new menu though is great. They have done away with the starter, main dessert style and have made it a choose what... More

We were asked to join some friends for an early dinner so glad we did. My wife was concerned as she is not a meat eater and the on line menu did show many options, ignore this as the menu changes and there is a specials board she was spoilt for choice. Our starters were as good as any I... More

Went to this restaurant for the first time with my wife to celebrate an anniversary. Warmly greeted, guided to our table, cold water, savoury popcorn arrived promptly along with the menu and wine list. Whilst some might think the menu might be limited it does mean that everything is freshly cooked: in my experience long menus usually mean frozen or... More

First visit to Nelson Street. Very enjoyable something a little bit different to the normal restaurants/pubs in Buckingham. More upmarket. Very nice for a special occasion.

We were taken here by friends for lunch who told us that it was their favorite local, can we can see why. The décor was lovely, the staff attentive and the open kitchen made for interesting viewing. The food was incredibly varied in cuisine style – from octopus to Lebanese lamb sausages and plaice to the traditional burger – and... More

Having dined as a couple on a number of occasions we decided to celebrate a big birthday with the family. The evening did not bode well when after approximately 15 minutes we had to ask the staff to take our drinks order, we eventually got our drinks but it did take quite some time. This was not helped by the... More

During a recent stay in Milton Keynes we fancied a bit of an exploration into Buckingham itself, and found this gem. We had the fish on the specials board, it was lovely! Service was so friendly and honest as well as attentive. We had not made a reservation and the restaurant was very busy but the staff found us a... More
