Harden's survey result
“Small but perfectly formed” – this “tiny place with an open-plan kitchen” tucked away off Northgate Street serves “wonderful food” with “great depth of flavour” and “you’re really well looked after” too.
“A lovely compact little restaurant (albeit “not quite as tiny” after a recent refurb’) serving really innovative dishes, tucked away in a passage off Northgate Street”; seasonal options use “really unusual ingredients” and “the whole experience feels special”.
“An excellent recent arrival to the Chester dining scene” – this two-year-old venture down one of the city’s cute city-centre passageways won very high ratings this year for its “fabulous dishes… unusual combinations that work really well”.
“Exceptional”, conscientiously sourced dishes and “friendly staff” (plus second-hand cookery books, craft beers and superior cocktails) have made a big name for this low-key yearling, in a discreet city-centre passage; the “only downside is that it’s a little too crowded”.
The Chef's Table Restaurant Diner Reviews
"A real find. Imaginative dishes excellently cooked so they emerge as exciting. A simple, oriental soup that is made magic by popped chickpeas and pomegranate. Grilled octopus that really taste of the fish. Wood pigeon wrapped in bacon and accompanied by gnocchi to absorb the flavours. Deserves more fame."
"This is a bit of a hidden gem down a side alley in the centre of Chester. A small intimate venue with a brilliant menu and very Instagram friendly dishes. Booking is advisable."
"Great and interesting food in a back street cafe setting"
"Wonderful meal, both my starter of a raviolo of Oxtail followed by hoggart were perfectly cooked and had great depth of flavour. The trio of woman who looked after us was really helpful from start to finish."
