I visited Cafe 52 for the first time with my husband to celebrate his birthday. We found the service very friendly, professional and attentive, the food was fantastic and the atmosphere was great. Ideal for couples or a group of friends. Will definitely be returning to try some of the other things on the menu!

We were greeted by friendly helpful staff and were seated beside the open kitchen. It was quite busy and the ambiance was more like that of a pub than a restaurant. This isn't necessarily a bad thing but would depend on the type of evening you are looking for. If it's a quiet romantic dinner it probably isn't the place... More

As usual the food was awesome but the menu has changed and I never got my amazing mussels, what I did get was the most amazing burger I have ever tasted! So not disappointed at all. Seemed a bit like the day menu but there is nothing at all wrong with that. Please give it a go, smokers are welcome,... More

This restaurant is a foodie's heaven, with a menu which regularly changes, there is a surprise element to every trip. I had three courses, and every single plate was a taste sensation, cannot recommend enough. Service was wonderful, there was an incredibly friendly, smiley waiter who served us. Fantastic.

I visited Cafe 52 with five friends. The atmosphere was good, food was excellent and the staff efficient and friendly. I had the mackerel pate which was served with salad and ciabatta, followed by hake with mussels. Both delicious and reasonably priced. Looking forward to a return visit!

Place is very interesting, we had a large table of work colleagues and it worked well but would have been nice a table for two in a corner too. Good food, service and wine. Bit dark and the toilet behind the curtain was quite close but I would probably go back.

I haven't been to Cafe 52 for ages (probably due to a very disappointing meal some years back), but on an impulse, gave it a try early on Saturday evening, and I'm glad I did. It's got a really nice atmosphere, the service was pleasant, and the food was really enjoyable. It's got a slightly less extensive menu than some... More
