“Fine dining in West Kirby”
Reviewed 17 July 2014

A comment from a friend about this bar and restaurant saw me book it last night (24th May 2014) for the my wife and I. We were immediately taken by the decor/style and welcome. I had the wood pigeon & pork belly whilst my wife had the scallops and sea bass... We both had the creme brûlée for dessert. Presentation of the food was excellent and the taste... Well let me just say - hallelujah fine dining has at long last come to West Kirby! Staff were knowledgable and friendly... All in all a fantastic evening... Thank you!

“Generally fine but nothing special”
Reviewed 10 July 2014 via mobile

Ate here on Monday evening and enjoyed a pleasant meal with good company and attentive service from staff. My only criticism would be that for two of our party that both the starter and main course were slightly overcooked.

“What a surprise!”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

Visited for mother in laws birthday, 4 adults, 2 children (age 5 & 3) at 6pm on a Sunday evening.

The Celeriac soup was exceptional and the scallops delicious.

We all had the Sunday Roasts, 2 Lamb (melts in the mouth), 1 Pork (lovely) and I had the Beef - perfectly cooked. Probably the best Sunday Roast dinner we've eaten in a Restaurant.

The beer selection was great - Munich HB was on tap, plus Paulaner and Augustiner were available in bottles.

Live music added to the buzz and the chap sang/played requests.

The seats are a bit haphazard, this adds to the cosy/quirky nature so don't be afraid to reject the ones that are broke/uncomfortable. The front of house and waiting staff were friendly and chatty.

A real surprise to find this quality and variety at a very reasonable price on our doorstep.

“Curious... Go find out for yourself!”
Reviewed 5 July 2014

Curio is a breathe of fresh air. Excellent locally sourced food, cooked to perfection by Head Chef & team. Inventive menus and flavoursome combinations. The atmosphere and service is friendly, quirky and fun, great for a special occasion or a few drinks with friends.

“wonderful food”
Reviewed 27 June 2014

Been several times. much improved as time gone on. Food last night exquisite. Great service from our very happy smiley waiter. Only marred by his taller colleague who is polite and helpful but looks like he needs a wash, lose the teenager and childrens bracelets, definitely needs to buy a hair brush and get a trim. He doesn't fit in somewhere serving such lovely food.
