“Excellent Mother's Day Lunch”
Reviewed 1 April 2014

We only managed to reserve a lunchtime table for 2.15pm on Mother's Day. The restaurant was packed but.....the service was friendly, extremely efficient (without being rushed) and the food simple and excellent. The beef was rare, the yorkshires ENORMOUS, the roast potatoes crisp on the outside and soft centred. The whole experience made for such an enjoyable, relatively low key celebration with friends whose children all lived away. We could not have chosen better. Thank you, Cafe Lowrey, we will be back very soon!

“Early bird menu - excellent value”
Reviewed 18 March 2014

We have been twice in the last month and on both occasions the food was good and service excellent. We had the early bird menu which was good value. the only disappointment was that the vegetarian main course option was risotto on both occasions. The other main course options were more varied each time.

“Not so good Now”
Reviewed 16 March 2014 via mobile

Being going to cafe Lowrey for years now. However the last time the food was poor. Steak was served with a Anchovies purée has to be the worst mix I have ever had. My guest ordered Halibut only to be told sold out 7 pm. Then cheese board had a few of the cheeses missing as again out of stock
Maybe that's why the place had so many empty tables very disappointed

“Excellent Food, excellent service and great ambience.”
Reviewed 22 February 2014

We visited Cafe Lowrey again and as with previous visits it didn't fail to impress.

The food was excellent, We both opted for the fillet steaks for mains and couldn't fault them.

The staff were really attentive and service was impeccable.

If you appreciate good food and and looking to choose from an extensive well selected wine list I'd suggest giving this place a try; it will not disappoint.

Also, if you have any room for pudding the melt in the middle chocolate pudding is a must!
