Eaten at this place a few times also celebrated my mother's 70th birthday food is amazing great drinks choice all in a relaxed atmosphere with friendly staff... will be back soon 👌
Restaurant was lovely and staff very friendly, but service a bit lacking. However, my wife selected one of the the vegetarian meals, the waitress went way and then came back and advised that it was not available. Not to be deterred she then asked if she could have 2 starters (one of them as a main course). She was advised that this was ok. We also ordered some bread & olives as a pre starter....but unfortunately they served us with our main starter first, and had to remind them of the bread & olives which they then served.......this is not what we wanted as it was all a bit to much. Ok we got past that, but when my wife's main course vegetarian option came it came on a small plate along with a large bowl of vegetables which she could not put the vegetables on....... Food was good, my wife's Vegeataian was good, my chicken meal was warm not hot perhaps could/should have been delivered when it was first prepared...by the chef ....it was probably left standing waiting to be served. More attention to detail is needed when delivering food that has been ordered.....and in the right order. Last comment....I ordered another glass of wine for my wife and waited 30 minutes for it to arrive, also we had to wait sometime before someone brought us the sweet/coffee menu but by this time the moment had passed...so we asked for the bill and left....will we go again.....?
Excellent food and the staff are very pleasant although slightly unorganised. Surprised they don’t have a menu of what spirits they have, my partner had to go and look at the till to see what spirits he could choose from. Waited 40 minutes for our main meals. We noticed other tables being served their mains before us even though we had been there longer. We didn’t mention anything as we were in no rush and were enjoying sitting and drinking our drinks. The waitress eventually bought our meals over and apologised for the wait. They also forgot my dessert and it was only that one of the waiters noticed I had been given cutlery and had sat waiting for a while that he chased it up and found that our ticket had been missed by the kitchen. Not really sure what the problem was with our table and missing our orders but we didn’t complain. The lemon meringue dessert wasn’t very nice, too sweet and the meringue was a runny mess but our seabass main meals and the Thai mussels and soft shell crab starters made up for what the dessert lacked. Although service was a bit of a let down we will definately return.
I can't rate this place highly enough, that's the second amazing meal we have had at The Cliffe Restaurant. My meal was tender, full of flavour and delightful. The staff were fantastic and I can't wait to come back for more. It's definitely the best steak I've ever eaten, somebody please give the chef a pat on the back from us. I'll stop typing now as I'm getting hungry!
Booked at lunch for husbands birthday. Lovely old building decorated with a modern twist. Service was excellent. We only ordered the Cliffe burger but it was probably the best burger we’ve ever had. The manager is very welcoming and spent time chatting to us. As it was my husband’s birthday, he bought out a free glass of bubbly for us both which was a very nice touch. After our meal he let us have a look at one of the rooms which was stunning for a hotel room. Large bathroom with separate roll top bath and large bedroom with fireplace overlooking the sea. We will definitely be returning to try the evening menu and will book an overnight stay for my birthday!
It was My Fathers 94th Birthday, he is a bit hard of hearing but short as is my step mother, chairs were very low for tables and uncomfortable even forty wife and myself, cutting in on back of legs, people management should always when buying furniture should try them out first, had to get cushions for shorter older parents not a big problem but shame about chairs. Starters were OK but not wow in any sense, had Sunday lunch before here was all very good, still same chairs still cut off legs. The mains I had steak and so did my wife these were very good and enjoyed them, also prawn and muscle salad for father was good, but the lamb mum had was tough and hard work, did not complain as that is not their way, but just saying for them as not a cheap meal. Only benefit was some of the lamb went home for the dog wrapped in tissues, he did not find it tough!
Nice venue ,Service., staff a bit to over friendly no need to call a customer Mate or Buddy or tell us how much they enjoyed items on the menu they are not paying for us !!! or may have different taste buds, its ok to say thats been a popular dish re training needed on level , arrived at 8 pm ordered Main courses by 8.30, 20 mins later were told that 1 main had sold out and that A limited selection was left on a Saturday night . it then took nearly 2 hours for the mains to arrive about 10 pm , much to late . wine menu limited would like to see some higher end wines for a treat . food was well cooked and hot ,price wise it was punchy for what it was. was going to order pudding but had a cab waiting for 11.30 and time was running out
