“excellent food and great staff”
Reviewed October 10, 2012

on the 15th september 2012 me, my partner and two of are friends went to the cu restaurant at the hillcrest hotel widnes. me and my partner had eaten at the restaurant before and want to show are friends as it had been refurbished and looked new and fresh.

when we walked into the restaurant we was welcomed by a young female who showed us to are table, the restaurant was very busy unlike last time we had been there.

we all had a 3 course meal which was fantastic, i had the duck which i would really recommend as it was cooked perfect!! i would just like to say thank you to the chef as we never got to thank him in person.

on this night there was only two staff in and one of them was a manager called dean who we have spoke to at the cu restaurant before, i would like to say that you to dean and his staff member who made us feel very welcome.

i would recommend your try this restaurant.

thank you to the team at the hillcrest

“Great staff - Poor food”
Reviewed October 3, 2012

We booked this restuarant online and were hoping for a nice meal, sadly we were extremely disappointed i.e. quail egs hard boiled/pigeon breast rare...........atmosphere in the restaurant was non-existent as it was a large room with only a few people in there............on the positive side the staff were great and couldn't do enough for you, sadly we won't be going back.

“Surprised :)”
Reviewed May 6, 2012 via mobile

We visited this place when it first opened and were disappointed. But we decided to give it another try and very pleasantly surprised. The food was great and the tables were really well presented. The only downside is, is that it was very quiet and lacked atmosphere.

We will definitely go again.

“a bit different”
Reviewed January 29, 2012

This hotel has a very pleasantly designed restaurant called CU, their menu is quite
inventive, it is a set menu which comprises of approximately five starters, five main
courses and four sweets. We were attended to by a very polite and professional gentleman.
Their menu gives a very good description of what each dish has and what it comes with. We
were informed that their menu changes every two to three months. When the dishes arrived
they were exactly how they are described in their menu, beautifully displayed and very
well presented showing styles you would normally only find in expensive restaurants. The
restaurant has gone for quality rather that quantity but we were very satisfied after all
three courses. It is well worth a visit if you want something different from your normal
pub style meals.
