“Brilliant restuarant”
Reviewed July 22, 2012

Had heard rave reviews from about Licorish from friends, so my wife and I decided to try it ourselves. The restaurant is located in the new exclusive Nicolway shopping centre.

What a discovery!

The owners and management clearly take pride in their overall product offering (food quality, taste, presentation design, ambiance and service) which I believe is perfectly balanced.
Not only is the food very attractive to look at but also extremely tasty. Not often does the quality and taste of food impress me as much as the food we tasted at Licorish.

…And we only went there for lunch! I can only imagine what the dinners must be like! We’ll certainly be back there again very soon.
