Having read some bad reviews, saying the food was like Iceland stuff I'd have to say this is definitely not the case. The food was fresh, of a high quality and well presented. We were on a living social voucher, we had the Brie and the spring roll starter. The Brie was to die for!! Then the lamb and fillet steak main, possibly the tastiest thing I've eaten for a while. And cheesecake pudding, defo not frozen rubbish! Will go again, not on voucher. And special thanks to our waiter, very attentive and polite, great customer service. We were the last ones in but were not rushed at all. Polite staff, gorgeous food, quality location! Can't wait for my next visit :-)

If there was a minus 1 score I'd have given it.
Took 15 minutes for drinks to arrive.. That's after being walked past by around 3 staff.
Food took half an hour and was terrible. How can you mess up a club sandwich??.. But they did.
Service is shocking.. No interest from any of them.. It's a rudderless ship of a place.
Food was cold had to ask twice for condiments... "Side salad" was 3 leaves and when pointed out to the staff the surly reply was "it's garnish". Well not according to your menu it isn't!
Great location on the Albert Dock but that's all it has going for it.
Needs a total overhaul.. Starting with manager and staff.

Having eaten here before over a year ago, we remembered he good the cocktails were so we wanted to return to Cisco for another round of tasty drinks.
It was 5pm on a cold and windy Tuesday when we arrived, the bar man was knowledgable and friendly, making suggestions and conversation without intruding.
We ordered a toffee apple martini, circo sour and a spend alcohol tea blend for two in a teapot amongst others. All were expertly made and delicious.
It is rather pricey hence the 4/5 rating, but they are delicious and the theme/setting for circo is fab!

Went in on Saturday morning and order 2 coffee's and 2 of the cooked breakfast. 30 minutes later food arrived but still no drinks and table had not been set with any cutlery. Place wasn't busy so can only assume the waiter that took our order just forgot the drinks. Food was good when it arrived.

Thanks for your feedback, At CIrco we aim to get our customers drinks to their table within 6 minutes of ordering and food soon after. Did you manage to tell the manager on duty Jayne of your concerns? We normally get great feedback for our breakfasts, I hope this haven't put you off from coming again.

My family and I booked into Circo '14 of us' on Saturday night. We arrived, had some fabulous cocktails in the bar before being shown to our table. Food and service were great, had a great NZ Sauvignon Blanc called Waddling Duck mmmm great night all round and great value too. Thanks to everyone who looked after us.
