We came in here on Sunday afternoon looking to get a tasty meal. Meal we got none. There were two waiters running around gleefully ignoring us and sitting new tables while we waited. It has now been 25 minutes and they still have not taken our drinks order!

Only called for take-away ice cream chose from the 50-odd flavours an orange sorbet & it was unbelievable, the best ive tasted. the restaurant looked massive with a large wine cellar on display & housed in a 50's style art deco building, if the food is as good as the sorbet you wont go wrong.

Took my fiance to Nardinis on a recent trip back to Scotland, as it was always a fantastic treat to go there as a child. Despite it being a glorious Sunday morning, there was plenty of space and we were promptly seated next to the window so had a great view. Alas things went downhill from here. We sat for... More

I must point out that I only had a vanilla cone to take away. The rest of the food here could be fantastic for all I know, but my ice cream had a weird powdery texture which was most unpleasant. I put it in the bin - a first for me. Disappointing.

We stopped in for tea around 6pm with 2 children (5&3) after my mum recommended it when we were staying nearby. When we arrived we were greeted by the amazing ice cream counter which was certainly motivation for the kids to eat their main course! There were so many flavours and they all look amazing! We were seated at a... More

We had heard the Nardini's Restaurant was a good place to go, and having a spare few days on the West coast we decided to give it a try. It looked lovely from the outside and seemed quite busy. We would have liked to have sat at the far end near the pianist, where there were several unoccupied tables, but... More
