Our second time dining at Ceno. The restaurant is modern and has a nice location. We had to wait a couple of minutes for our table, so we sat in the bar area. It was relatively busy and also quite loud in there because of the amount of people. However, overall the bar area was a nice place to have... More

I was welcomed the moment I walked in, to a pleasant environment. I had scallops to start with - to be picky I'll complain they weren't served with their corals. The scallops were warm(ish) but with a cold sauce on a slate. Next I had calves liver, which might have been nice but the taste was overwhelmed by the sweet... More

I went here with my parents and girlfriend. The restaurant is tastefully decorated and has a great atmosphere, whilst the staff are attentive and friendly. Our food service was pretty fast, but not so quick that we felt rushed. Portions were massive (unexpectedly so for a restaurant) and very, very tasty. The chef obviously loves his/her work and is passionate... More

Lovely food, couldn't fault it but the service was very slow! I ate the tempura prawns to start and had the classic liver and bacon for main. Both exquisite. Just waited a long time to order and even longer to eat.

Visited Ceno for the first 'Wine Club'. The atmosphere was relaxed with a tapas style food service and ample wine! We were told a little about all the wines served as they were brought out systematically to complement the food we were served. We dine at Ceno a lot and have always been impressed with the quality of service and... More

Visited Ceno again on 8th Feb. We are regular visitors. This time they were holding a wine tasting accompanied with a variety of food. Both were excellent. We were able to sample a variety of wines from Spain, each of them described in the menu, together with a selection of foods also from Spain, and they complemented each other perfectly.... More

Very nice venue and good food. The warm apple cinnamon and pecan cake with vanilla custard was to die for. Scallops a must too. Nice atmosphere and certainly busy.

The food and service was good but it was quite loud. I went for the roast beef with homemade yorkshire pudding and lots of yummy gravy. The beef was lovely but the roast potatoes were a little hard and I missed not having stuffing. They had a veggie option which was a plus and the desserts were delicious.
