    De Pary's Hotel and Restaurant: Family Friendly Restaurant

    by mazzap Updated Jan 28, 2007

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Victorian built hotel

    Friendly restaurant within a hotel. Victorian building in one of Bedford's prettiest roads. Lovely large garden with plenty of seating on the lawns and terraces - it gets very busy during the summer inside and outside.

    A discount card offering 2 for 1 and other deals is available for a nominal charge of £12 most of the year - good if you use the restaurant regularly - but even used just the once you wil most probably recoup your cost!

    Pleasant surroundings with lots of unusual pictures on the walls - some of old Bedford are interesting.

    2 children per adult can eat free up til 7pm (kids meal, desert and drink!) and there is a great play area in the enclosed garden - which is why loads of families use this place in the summer!

    The bar has a good atmosphere (although usually too smokey) and televised sports can be watched from here.

    Favorite Dish: The steaks are very good - also a good variety of mexican food and other chicken and fish dishes. Always a choice of fries, jacket or salad with each meal!! Large selection of scrummy deserts.........see my local customs tip!!

    Nando's Restaurant: A Lively Place, With Great Customer Focus!

    by mazzap Updated Jan 28, 2007

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Well perhaps the chips aren't so healthy!

    A great but healthy meal in a lively place is what you should get at Nando's. A little bit different in that you have to go to the counter with your table number and place your order - you pay then, or leave a credit card to keep the tab open.

    A chain restaurant with many branches to be found around the UK. This is what Nando's have to say about themselves on their website:-

    "Any restaurant group that started life in South Africa and prepares traditional Portuguese chicken with a fiery PERi-PERi kick is sure to have a unique outlook.

    Nando’s first arrived in Britain 11 years ago and soon worked its way up the pecking order so there are now 85 restaurants around the country, with more on the way. Proof, if any were needed that heat loving Brits have fallen for the combination of healthy, succulent, flame-grilled PERi-PERi chicken, excellent value for money and traditional Portuguese hospitality in a fun atmosphere."

    It really is good - try Nando's next time you see one!

    Favorite Dish: I have been here twice, but chose to have the same thing each time! The chicken wing combi - great value and just enough to leave room for a "Nata" (or 2!) afterwards! This being a delicious Portugese custard filled pastry!

    I highly recommended the dish of PERI-PERI nuts AND the dish of spicy mixed olives to nibble before your food arrives!

    Check out the menu and on-line shop on their website - you can buy various products to be home delivered too!

    NANDO'S: Chicken, chicken and more chicken...

    by nhcram Updated Jul 8, 2005

    MM_ Chicken Salad

    OK so this is a chain of restaurants BUT they are consistently good value for money. Chicken is the most popular thing on the menu and is served in many different ways. Some of the dishes are very spicy... so you have been warned!

    Favorite Dish: I had the Mediterranean chicken salad and it was yummy. We also had some olives in garlic to start. The Sangria was also very good.
