At first we thought the prices were eye-watering and that we should restrict ourselves to lunch in future, but after the exquisite meal we couldn't fault, who cares about the money. Yes, I know we're lucky we can afford it.

Excellent food at a reasonable price. First class service and a boss who speaks to all his customers. We had a lovely evening at Cafe Lilli celebrating our wedding anniversary.
