“No management”
Reviewed August 29, 2013

Superb food, friendly helpful waiters but absolutely no management. This restaurant is nicely situated and has a good atmosphere but unfortunately it will never function the way it should with manager/s who just sit and do nothing. The only time the manager got off his chair was when I was looking for a waiter who had forgotten to bring me a glass of water - apart from that no "Good evening, how is your food, thank you, etc". It is not a cheap restaurant so it needs to be professionally managed and so sad that it is not as it should be attracting a lot more patrons.

“Average...”
Reviewed June 28, 2013

Everything average here, not that great. The place doesn't really live up to it's wannabe fancy name. Nice if you stay in the area I guess.

“A little above the ordinary”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

Not your ordinary steakhouse. Good food and service. Served with flair. You get what' you pay for not the cheapest restaurant.

Nuvo Cuisine in Faerie Glen delicious and impressive food, friendly service and a nice atmosphere. This is a cosy restaurant definitely worth visiting to celebrate that special occasion and to treat your family and friends. I will surely go back there for that coming celebrations.

“Great value lunches”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

We eat lunch here occasionally and it has always been excellent. The service is slow, but that's because they cook everything fresh. For example you can hear them cooking the steak for the pot pie; it's not just a frozen batch being heated up.
We had dinner once and it was also very good.
