What a gorgeous little place- went here for dinner on the first night of our holiday expecting your standard Italian restaurant- we were so wrong. The food was truly outstanding (we both recommend the lamb rump) and such incredible value for money- three courses and drinks came to just under £40. With the standard of food and service at The Courtyard we would have payed double that amount. Do not miss- beautiful place!

The Court Yard is a great hidden gem of a restaurant hidden in the back streets of Yarmouth.

The Court Yard is run by two of the best in the industry in east Anglia. The kitchen is headed up by Dave, a great Chef and the front of house is led by the wonderful Katy.

Italian food can often be hit or miss with high prices or low prices but for different factors of the meal. This is simply not the case at the Court Yard. You get great quality at superb prices and nothing is too much effort for the first class team at this establishment.

The menu is kept fresh and vibrant throughout the year and additional items are added daily accordingly to the freshest options made available by their suppliers.

When you are in the Court Yard you feel like you are at home. It's no surprise really as that is exactly how you are made to feel.

Customer service and hygiene standards are all first rate. If you pick the right table you can even watch your food being prepared. The negative review they have is totally undeserved especially as this person admits they have never set foot in the building.

The time for me to talking this venue up is at an end! As they say the proof of the pudding is in the eating so don't take what I say for granted, try it. You will not be disappointed!!

We have eaten at the Courtyard many times and have never been disappointed by the food or service. Always a warm welcome from Katie and great food from David.

I've eaten in this restaurant several times and tonight found out it's on Trip Advisor so felt compelled to leave my review. The food is good honest, fresh Italian food....nothing OTT fancy, just fresh, good honest food, lip smacking, delicious food that makes you almost beg for seconds....the likes of which you could pay treble for elsewhere. The service in this place is second to none. How the hostess remembers everyone I will never know but I feel like I'm being welcomed by an old friend. Yes it's small and I'm glad it's small, it's intimate......you'd have to go a VERY long way to find a better dining experience.....5* night out
