We have eaten at giannis many times over the years often taking advantage of the happy hour deal and always enjoying it. I would go as far as to say that it's one of our family favourites. We went on Saturday night and had a totally different experience. The manager Gordon was clearly having a bad day and he needed... More

Ate in this restaurant last night. Gotta say that the service and food was first class. I had the chicken livers and pizza. My partner had the king prawn starter and lobster ravioli. All cooked really well and very fresh....flavours were amazing. Priced very well. We will definitely eat there again.

What's happened to the service??? Slow, at times surly, and disorganised. Had to ask for cutlery for our main meal. Repeatedly asked for drinks but eventually having eaten our main... More

Having visited this restaurant on numerous occasions when previously in the Lake District (and remembering loving the food) we turned up on spec on a freezing Monday evening to find all the tables were taken. We decided to sit in the bar area and wait for a table to become available - and enjoy a cocktail! Our wait wasn't long... More

We visit italian restaurant. Food was really nice big portion. Service was slow:( Manager ( I think he was manager) was really nice but one young waiter was rude, no smile, (sorry I no take orders) so what you doing there??? No professional. Manager and one lady looks busy. We definitely come back. Young guy need improve customer service

What a fantastic little eatery. The staff were really friendly. We had our 8 year old grandson with us and he enjoyed the meal too. We will definitely go again when next in Kendal.

While staying in the laws cottage for a few days this restaurant came highly recommended. We booked a table for 5.30pm and had no trouble booking. On arrival we was shown our window seat which was lovely, the seating is very comfortable. Drinks order was taken swiftly and just after the drinks arrived we had our good order taken. I... More
