“Accidental breakfast!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2013

Had it in mind to visit here, after reading previous reviews, and after we were badly let down by a hotel we stayed at, we just so happened to walk past here in need of breakfast, and a lovely breakfast we did have - so good, we were almost glad we'd missed out on the hotel breakfast! Lovely waitress, and hoping to come back and sample some of the lunch/dinner menu next time we're in Leicester!

“Awesome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2012 via mobile

I went here last night for my birthday, it was a surprise and I had no idea there was even a restaurant on Braunstone Gate. The food was lovely, I had the trio of chicken which was delightful, 3 completely different flavours on one meal, and my partner had the venison which was very well cooked and delicious. The atmosphere was nice, with ambient lighting and soft background music. The service was excellent and we were very well looked after. The only thing I can criticise is the price of the alcohol, £5 for a pint of lager!!!!!! Would definately recommend this bistro and will be eating here again!

“Returned for a second treat!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2012

Soooo glad we went back for a second time! Four of us had amazing food and excellent service. Our guests didn't believe there was any 'fine dining' to be had in this area so were very impressed! We had Trio of Chicken & it was sooooo delicious! The fish specials are so morish, I ate some of my partner's - will have that next time! Definitely the best food in Leicester by far!!!

“Quality food & service with a smile all at a reasonable price - thankyou!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 23, 2012

As we walked in we were welcomed with a smile, seated and served in a friendly professional manner and found the staff very helpful too - we have two children under five.
The menu has a great variety aswell as a specials board. We look forward to going back and would highly recommend them.
