This is the second time here at The Ivory and like the first it did not disappoint. From the moment we arrived the waiting staff were polite, courteous and diligent, managing to find the perfect balance between attentiveness without being over bearing. The food as usual was excellent and if you love cocktails you must try the Pear Drop Martini... More

This was exactly what we wanted - a good quality lite lunch with a lot of choices. As it turned out I had the squid and my wife had a Caesar salad with chicken both were excellent the service was exceptional. My first choice of Sauvignon blanc wine was not as I would've wished. However it was perfectly good notwithstanding... More

We have been here a few times and each time it never fails to impress. The staff are really pleasant and helpful the food is delicious and the smoking balcony is fabulous, comfy sofas and blankets for those cold evenings.

My wife and I chanced upon the Ivory on the recommendation of a couple who found looking a little lost and lost for somewhere to eat. As such we didn't have a booking but the restaurant was relatively quiet and we had plenty of choice of tables. My wife and I both kicked-off with the scallops which were well cooked... More

Apart from the highly efficient & professional staff this restaurant has gone down hill rapidly! If paying in excess of £15 for a main meal you expect something that exceeds your own abilities but unfortunately this was not the case. The 20% discount offered was accepted but I will never return. Only attractive part now seems to be the bar.

Located in a pleasant room on the upper level of House of Fraser in the Victoria Shopping Centre, one may be forgiven for having expectations of a decent lunch. Sadly, the Portavogie scampi consisted of 90% batter with a mini sized shrimp buried within and competed with the heavily battered squid for tastelessness. The burger was served up dangerously hot...
