When we booked lunch at this restaurant we didn't know that today was town market day. The little city was packed and so was the restaurant...to the rafters..! However the food was excellent and rapidly appeared on our table... Great starters and even better main courses exceeded our expectations in such a full restaurant. Despite the pressure the staff were... More

We received a warm welcome, our waitress introduced herself by name and explained the menu in detail. The menu was a lovely selection and we chose... More

A lovely restaurant, with equally delicious food. My only quibble was for the waiting staff who seemed to be rushed off their feet, drinks arrived incorrectly and missing accompaniments for the starters (roll). However the food that arrived was hot, tasty and filling and it would not put me off coming again. (This is my 3rd Visit)

Friendly & welcoming restaurant, close to the market square but tucked in a courtyard. Piano is played some evenings. Food is good. Nice atmosphere.

We all enjoyed amazing food and fantastic service from the staff at Cafe Piano. It was my Mum's 80th Birthday and we had travelled from all over the world to come to this lovely place. Our granddaughter is on a diary free diet and the staff were amazing sorting suitable food for her. Everywhere inside is spotless, light and airy.... More

We tried this restaurant out with a groupon voucher which was £25 for two people giving 2courses each and a 125ml glass of wine each. So, the value received was excellent. The surroundings are clean light and jazz-themed - all good. The staff were all excellent and so I would give high marks for that. The selections all sound excellent... More
