A lovely place, but it stank of fish, which for me as a veggie, automatically made me feel sick. My husband loved it and said the food was one of the best if he was reviewing, he'd give it an excellent. My food was not edible really. As is often the case with veggie food in restaurants, I'm afraid. Go... More

Very poor service, no choice on sandwiches, should be unlimited tea and it took me a good half hour to get another pot of tea because the front of house staff were never where they should be, we won't be going back!

we had a lovely Christmas lunch here. The views from the restaurant are gorgeous and we enjoyed friendly and prompt service from the staff. A great start to Christmas.

I am not sure where to start reviewing the afternoon tea! We had high hopes for my friend's birthday. Having tried twice to book and not having been called back as promised should have rang alarm bells. The restaurant was very quiet so there was no excuse for the poor service we experienced. The afternoon tea was served with the... More

Luxurious cocktails including 2-4-1 on Thursdays. The bar is on the fifth floor of the Hilton and the scenery is beautiful. A very romantic setting with a classy touch! Third time I've been here and it certainly won't be the last.

They are supposed to be a steakhouse specialist Mine was very tough T bone and at £28 not at all what I expected. Don't bother. Quality is not MPS standard. Go to one of the chains on the wharf.

Afternoon tea was less than mediocre for five persons. On arrival place was empty,I should have seen this as an omen. Apart from piped Christmas music there was no evidence of the Christmas period in this room. The nice bits are - Nice Clean and Tidy reasonable environment with some views over the Brayford and towards the Cathedral but also... More

We visited this restaurant on the 6th November to celebrate my girlfriends 23rd Birthday. With relatively good reviews and my girlfriend having visited prior to the restaurant changing ownership to Marco Pierre White, it seemed like the best option for the area. I booked a table for 9pm and I was asked whether it was for a special occasion and... More

Cocktail heaven. Not much here you can't get, but take out a second mortgage! Don't even want to know how much we spentt. Still, capped off a great night and overlooking the waterfront drinking pink fizz from jars can't be beaten. Do it, you know it makes sense!

We have used this bar a few times before and I would have to describe it as average, I think it's trying to be upmarket, but not sure if that works. Service is ok if no one else in, drinks are over priced for what they are, and it really feels like a case of "please come in and spend... More
