Visited for New Year's Day lunch. We were served very well by Kurt who was very knowledgeable on the menu. The ambiance was very cosy. The place is nicely decorated and attention to detail can be noticed. We were served mini pancakes with caper dressing...on top. these were a great start to the meal. The fresh warm bread rolls were also happily devoured with some fresh olive oil. For starters we had the special pasta with truffle sauce and calamari fritti. Both were delicious. For mains we both had the duo of pork which consisted of pork belly, pork sausage and roast vegetables, potato mash puree and roast potatoes. The pork belly was very tender and flavourful, served with delicious crackling. The sausage was potent and also divine. For dessert we chose apple crumble and chocolate fondant. Both were mouth wateringly perfect. Price for a three course meal for two persons, one aperol spritz, two jb coke and one diet coke was 102 euro. We were also given a drink on the house at the end. Very top quality and worth every penny.More

We went to this restaurant after finding reviews online. We had a very nice meal, both main courses and desserts were excellent. The service was first class, it was worth the money we paid.

Attended the restaurant for New Years Eve. Tried booking on the website weeks ago but the reservation wouldn't go through. Emailed them book and had a reply within minutes. Extremely helpful and friendly. I had the exact same welcoming upon arrival to Lovage. Waiters were...extremely welcoming and helpful. Recommended what he thought was good on the menu. I decided to go for the Duck Breast and my partner chose Ribeye Steak. What a decision! Food was cooked to perfection. Incredibly tasty and looked amazing. The steak along with the duck were both so thick! Would definitely recommended for anyone travelling to the area. What an amazing place to go into the new year.More

I love this restaurant. It is stylish, cosy and comfortable with food that would not be out of place in a top London restaurant. There are some very imaginative dishes all presented beautifully. The service is excellent and the chef really cares what you think...of his dishes.More
