An excellant spot for cocktails and an evening out for food. The curious cat has an extensive menu of exquisit cocktails which are perfectly blended and beautifully presented, as well as food which is cooked to perfection and varied. The atmosphere is cosy and lively and the staff are friendly and attentive. Would reccomend the visit.

We booked a table for 6 but only 4 of us could make it, the staff were not annoyed with us/did not show any attitude like some places might. They were quick with our drinks order and gave us the perfect amount of time to decide on what food we wanted to order. All 4 of us ordered the deli boards, not only were they well presented but the food was fantastic. The people sat behind us even commented on how nice our food looked. We'll definitely be going again!

Although we had a positive experience here and we did enjoy our meal, there were a few issues. The main issue, I believe, is that this venue was under-staffed. We waited a very long time before being served when we arrived. Food was requested to come without salad, etc. When the plates arrived it was clear that the kitchen hadn't paid attention to this. After we had finished our main courses we were asked if we wanted puddings. I asked to see the menu again, and decided which pudding I wanted. However, nobody returned to take our order. After half an hour of waiting we decided that enough was enough, asked for the bill and left. However, the food we did have was very nice.

Went here with my son for the cocktails to show him we have a bit of sophistication in Grimsby (he lives in Nottingham) , decided to eat here at the same time and was impressed with the quality of the food and the menu overall. Polite friendly staff and good service, would definitely eat here again and the food was not expensive unlike the cocktails. The latter is not a complaint, cocktails cost wherever you are!

Table was ready for us at appointed time and greeted by friendly staff- ample time given to peruse menu and order drinks Food beautifully presented and was delicious, too full to have dessert. Not too busy for a Saturday lunch-time so staff had time to be attentive. Prices reasonable for well cooked and tasty food served in a nice atmosphere

Fantastic place, great food and fabulous drinks. Staf very friendly and attentive. Great atmosphere but the only downside was it was a little cold towards the back as the rear door ws being opened and shut all night causing a draught and people had to sit in their coats. All in all a great venue that doesn't dissapoint.

Lovely, sophisticated atmosphere with even lovelier staff! Cocktails and food were top class and well worth the money! Would recommend for couples and big groups alike, who want something a bit different to the usual spoons. Again, cocktails were great, do the job (get you drunk), just like I am now:) PLEASE GO X
