We visited Cafe Lili as a family as a thank you to parents for baby sitting. Booking was easy and the staff were friendly and efficient throughout the meal.
Food is lovely - we had fish and meat dishes that were well cooked and beautifully presented.
A lovely evening.

Our friends drove us over thirty miles to dine here as they obviously rated it. We parked quite conveniently across the road and entered into a surprisingly busy and bustling restaurant considering it was a mid-week visit. We had booked and I think this is advisable.
The seating is as expected more cafe-like but comfortable enough. The decor and atmosphere is fair.
The food was very good and there were no complaints except to say is a little pricey.The staff were excellent.

If you're looking for great food, excellent wine, good service and value for money, get down to Cafe Lilli.
Roberto the owner is a mine of information on wines. He visits different Italian vineyards and brings back cases to sell at the restaurant. We tried his latest Pinot Grigio. Not the usual bland offering but a rich, almost Gavi like wine with a good body and finish. A steal at £24 a bottle.
We ate the fish special, fabulously cooked cod in a mussel beurre blanc sauce over risotto, outstanding. Our guests had a great tasting surf and turf each.
Plenty on the menu for everyone, I can't recommend it enough.

Hi Carolyn,

Thank you for your feedback.

The lamb dish we served at the weekened came with sweet potato puree, spinach and portobello mushroom, I'm sorry if you did not find it enough. Side dishes of roast potatoes and vegetables are also available on the menu.

I do hope this would not put you off returning to Cafe Lilli in the future and we do welcome all feedback.

Kindest regards,
Sarah and all at Cafe Lilli
