Visited here for my partner's birthday. We have previously visited another restaurant in the town that offers exquisite Turkish cuisine, so we had some expectations to fill. Personally, I found the food to be delicious, but not quite as decadent as their local competitor, but...More

After battling with the waiter to understand that 31st Dec was not a bank holiday (and therefore the set menu should be running), we eventually managed to get our food for a semi-reasonable price. The quality was very poor - such side salad covered in...More

Not knowing Bishops Stortford at all, we picked the restaurant based on reviews and the menu, and were so happy we did! The rest of the town was very quiet, we then walked up to Pircio and it was a hive of activity, packed out,...More

A lovely Mediterranean atmosphere and the food was excellent. The only problem was that we booked a table for two and were seated along the side, the tables were so close together that it felt like we were sharing with the tables either side, I...More
