Went here for dinner with some colleagues. The restaurant is a bit dated but that plays to its charm. It is a family run place where emphasis is put on the quality of the food. We were certainly all very happy and full when we left. You have to climb a good flight of stairs to get to it and... More

We are in Hull for three days Uk City of Culture and all that. We had decided to eat at Leonardos but they were full. Very helpful Lee rang the Lantern to see if they had a table for four. They did and we were very pleased with our dinner. It is not a place we would have gone to... More

We used to eat lunch here in the late 60's early 70's, and were delighted to find that it has retained its charm, cosy atmosphere and fantastic food. It is still run by the same Greek Cypriot family, who are welcoming and friendly. We had an evening meal this time and the food was wonderful. There is a great selection... More

The Lantern might not be everyone's cup of tea but I love the place. A family business with real care and pride in what they do. Yeah so the decor hasn't changed since ... whenever, and the layout is unusual, and those stairs on the way up with the faded linoleum make you wonder if you're going back in time... More

We went to the lantern tonight, I have been before maybe 10 times over the last 30 years. The food was fabulous, garlic mushrooms to start, followed by steak frys and a creek salad, all delicious. The sad thing is we all forget what a real restaurant should be like, most of us just eat food for fuel, so these... More

I have been coming to the Lantern for the last 20 years and have never been disappointed, the food is first class and the service always swift and friendly. The menu is varied but I struggle to order anything other than the Steak and the Halibut as they are just so amazing. Yes you do pay extra for side but... More

I came here with my wife for lunch and all I can say is the food was simply outstanding. I had the Porterhouse Steak and it was good to perfection. My wife had the stroganoff and she thoroughly enjoyed it. The service was excellent. We have been here numerous times and never disappointed.

I used to come here as a kid with my family and to tell you the truth it hasn't changed one bit! The decor, the food and quality of the service is still great! It took me right back to my childhood! I will definitely be going back! The Mushrooms & Beef Stroganoff are a must!
