“Lovely modern interior!”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

This place has a great feel inside, very modern and fresh! But the staff need a bit more training, although they are polite, they are all very young and a little too much into each other rather then the customer!
The food was really nice, very fresh! Recommend the breakfast menu and pizza for the kids. Coffee was great but don't bother with the over priced milk shakes, watery and bland!
Overall we had a nice breakfast here but there is room for improvement. Also, Mud Crab cafe please get rid of the notice about children in the menu! It's rude! I can control my children's behaviour and don't need a reminder, thanks!

“Revitalised old favourite”
Reviewed October 16, 2012

We were intrigued to visit the new incarnation of Felicini's - would there be any of our prefered dishes of old still available?; would it be all that different?

We were pleasantly surprised as the restaurant was 'buzzing' as many Didsbury locals came to look at the changes. We still got a table easily but the atmosphere was really alive and the attentive staff team were thriving on it.

The food was really delicious - a small selection of dishes from the old menu but a different look and feel overall. We had a selection of the small dishes and really enjoyed the variety of tastes. The duck hash with deep fried egg was amazing. The Grinch Special Chicken was spicier than I remember from Grinch - good but personally I prefered the original recipe. The sweet potato frittata tasted great but we expected it to be hot because of the way it was presented in a skillet. Crab tartlette was also a real winner. Overall a great lunch experience.
