Table booked for three people. Restaurant quiet to begin with, but rapidly filled up, which confirmed the need for a reservation. Very good lunch indeed, and great value at approx £19 per person. Service much improved since our last visit, and made most welcome. Quality of good first class also. Parking still remains a minor problem, if bar/ restaurant busy.... More

Overall nice experience, food was good, wife would liked to have seen more vegetarian meals on the menu.When we commented the help full staff did say we could have asked if the chef could have come up with something more, would suggest this comment could be added to the menu somewhere.

We have been dining here almost weekly since the Steayban opened around twenty years ago. Nowhere in the locality comes close to both the service and the quality of the meal. The entire dining experience, from the welcoming and friendly staff to the excellent food is fantastic. A trip to the Steayban is highly recommended.

Have dined here on many occasions since Steayban opened nearly twenty years ago but it just keeps getting better. The food and the service cannot be beaten.

This beautiful restaurant has a fantastic environment to have a romantic meal with my other half. The food is always on point. The service is friendly and you do not feel rushed. Everything is thought out from the table setting to the decor. The food was beautiful fresh and inventive. Can't wait to come again with our friend's.

This was our second visit to the Steayban, and not disappointed. Were out for a run, and decided to eat out, and remembered, that we had eaten in a restaurant in the area before, so headed for the Steayban, arrived around 5.30 and asked if table available, and was shown to last vacant table left.
