Electric had been recommended by a friend and I really couldn't fault it. There is a vibrant bar downstairs and the restaurant is upstairs. Staff were friendly and we were shown to our table straight away. The menu is varied there was so much that I wanted. I had the creamy mushrooms to start and the monkfish special, I ate... More

I have been here many times, it s a popular place, nice atmosphere, usually a good buzz. I find the food a bit boring and expensive for what it is.

We ate here last night. I had a goat's cheese starter with pomegranate and blood orange dressing. My partner had black pudding with a sort of sweet onion chutney. Both were delicious. Lots of flavours that complimented each other well. I had a rib eye steak which was beautifully seasoned and cooked as I had asked. The chips accompanying were... More

Went for bar food (fish) and had oysters and calamari. The oysters were fresh, well presented, great value for the money. The calamari were limp, almost no batter, no flavor (really needed the sauces for the taste), ridiculously small portion for the huge price! Very disappointed with the calamari... I had a very good pint of craft ale. Staff was... More

Three of us went to Electric last night after recommendations from colleagues. Place wasn't busy and we got a nice table overlooking the river on the ground floor, two of us ordered Dressed crab and one steak samba , but I have to say that the crab was a real disappointment and the crab was presented on two pieces of...

I ate here on Sunday night with my husband. The restaurant was fairly busy for a Sunday night, and we chose it for the fillet steak option and varied range of starters. We both had the King prawn skewers to start, which despite being over-cooked we're still very tasty along with the sauce and very presentable too. The fillet steak... More

Went there with a group from work. I liked the location, and the view from the restaurant. Staff were very polite and helpful and made good recommendations. I had the fish and chips which was delicious. And the chocolate cake for dessert which was also really good. All in all great atmosphere and delicious food. Would definitely go back again.

Excellent food and staff, only letdown is the decor is a little tired. Paying high business rates the Electric deserves the City Council to clean the awful eyesore river view from the bar that should be the jewel in the crown of any city.
