“Great place, great meal”
Reviewed April 9, 2012

We were staying at Wells Holiday Park over the Bank Holiday Weekend and wanted to book somewhere we could walk to. I found Cafe Piano through this site and as the reviews were so positive we decided to book for Easter Saturday.
We were not disappointed. The service was excellent and the meal was one of the best I've had in a long time. We always eat out while we're away, as it saves me cooking as well as supporting local restaurants. Cafe Piano is a MUST if you're in Wells and looking for something a little bit different. A real find. The music on Saturday was really good and added to our enjoyment.
Yes, we will go back when next in Wells.

“Wonderful”
Reviewed April 3, 2012

Very difficult to find but please make the effort as you will be well rewarded. Look for the Swan Hotel and go into the courtyard next door (I think).
We were there on a Sunday and only wanted a snack, not the set lunch menu. When we explained the staff were exceptionally helpful and we were able to have two starters. Whilst waiting we saw the food being served and it looked delicious and going by the comments of the other diners tasted so as well. Ours was well presented and full of flavour. The chap on the piano made the atmosphere very relaxed and when it came time to leave we regretted booking our evening meal elsewhere, as we would have loved to stay the whole afternoon as it was so welcoming. Looking forward to going back and making a proper "Meal" of it.

“Amazing food and atmosphere”
Reviewed April 2, 2012

Went here for Sunday lunch last week with the other half. The choice of Sunday roasts was amazing nevermind the starters and desserts!!! The staff were really friendly and the pianist who played in the background was excellent. The portions were more than enough for any hungry appetite. Would highly recommend this quaint place and will be going back very soon.

“Deicious steak!”
Reviewed March 25, 2012

Not thinking that Wells would be booked out on a Saturday night I rang this restaurant Friday afternoon and unfortunately they were fully booked, but they took my number and promised to get back to me if there was a cancellation - which, lucky for us , meant a table! While there is not a massive choice of wine, what they did have was very reasonably priced and we had a good red. My steak was cooked to perfection and the accompanying vegetables were also very good. Pleasant service and extremly good value for money!

“Music made it classy”
Reviewed March 25, 2012

Really top food at a reasonable rate. Enjoyed the music which added to a really comfortable atmosphere. Small menu which somehow offered too much choice. One thing, the dinners we choose came with veg, boiled potatoes and chips. The chips were unnecessary as the other potatoes were so nice. We will eat at the Piano again.
