    ~ Antibo Restaurant ~: ~ Delicious Pizzas and steaks ~

    by Heavens-Mirror Written Apr 30, 2006

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Antibo's has a fantastic menu with lots of choice for all tastes, Pizzas, spaghetti, steaks, kebabs and more. The staff are great too, really friendly and helpful and always ready to serve you. The restaurant is very clean and modern and has a lovely atmosphere. Its quite busy at weekends so sometimes you may need to book in advance.

    Favorite Dish: I enjoyed the spaghetti bolognese and i also like the steak kebab on a skewer. For a starter they do gorgeous garlic mushrooms with a nice breadroll and the garlic bread is delicious too.

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    TGI Fridays is a large American chain of restaurants with predictably huge portions of American food, energetic waiting staff and a 'bar and grill' interior - great fun for kids. This branch is popular with students.

    The atmosphere at Tgi's is great too, they have cheerful waiters and waitresses aswell as lots of happy customers all around. The restaurant is very clean and well kept.

    There is a great choice of food on the menu... from steaks, to pizza to chicken wings and potato skins then finish off with cookies and ice cream!

    Favorite Dish: My favourite is the Jack Daniels Chicken wings.... grilled chicken smoothered in Jack Daniels and comes with a barbecue and garlic mayonaise dip. Yummy!

    Frankie & Benny's: New York Style Restaurant

    by Heavens-Mirror Written Sep 26, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Frankie & Benny's has a traditional 1950s New York feel to it with its original family photographs, traditional wooden furniture and old music.

    They serve a wide range of authentic American and Italian dishes at their restaurant including pizzas, pasta, burgers, ribs and fries. They also cater for vegetarians and serve cocktails, beers, wines and spirits at their bar.

    I like the warm welcome feeling at this restaurant, plus its a great start to a night out in Nottingham.

    Its good for a Birthday or other special occasions or just as a nice treat for yourself or a friend. I used to come here every week with my Dad before he moved to Egypt.

    Favorite Dish: Wow... where can i start? Theres so much to choose from at this restaurant. One of my favourite dishes is the Pizza & house salad, i love the salad dressing oh & the fries here are lush too!

    The Larder on Goosgate: The Larder on Goosgate

    by jo104 Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    My goal was to seek out a delicious sunday roast in Nottingham & I think we found a hidden gem in the trendy Hockley district. The decor of the restuarant is in keeping with the grade II listed orginal Boots chemist shop, the walls are neutral creams & greens. Chandeliers adourn the ceiling & complement the chesterfield sofas.

    They do a special of 3 courses for £14.95 & even though I am not a dessert person I could not bear to leave without indulging in their bread & butter pudding. For starters I had the skylark goats cheese, broad bean, mint & rocket salad followed by the best roast beef with all the trimmings. The portions were very adequate and extremly tasty.

    The staff were helpful & you could tell that they do not over-order & reheat as once it is gone its off the menu & we were one of the last tables to leave.

    Tues - Sat they do a lunch & dinner and sunday lunch is from 12 - 2.30pm

    Jas Cafe: Jass Cafe

    by jo104 Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This coffee shop is attached to the Jass interiors shop which sells some funky gadgets. There are different areas you can sit & sip lovely coffee & think my house could do with this they stock tables, chairs, lighting almost anything you can think of.

    There are tables outside with a very pretty little central garden & one would never guess you're on a busy main pedestrian street - the perfect hideaway.

    For me the coffee was a good hangover cure

    What have they put in this coffee!

    Le Bistrot Pierre: French cuisine

    by iwys Updated Jan 24, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Le Bistrot Pierre won the 2008 Best Casual Restaurant in Nottingham award, having won the Best Value for Money award at the Nottingham Restaurant Awards three years running. Their head chef has also won the Best Chef in Nottingham award.

    The food is superb. The best time to eat is from 6 to 7pm, when there is a special pre-theatre dinner offer of two courses for £11.50. Also, after 7pm it is usually completely full. So, you'll need to make a reservation. The atmosphere is informal, so don't feel you need to dress up to go there, although you can if you want to. Two evenings per month there is a Soiree Gastronomique with 6 courses for £18.60.

    I would say if you are only going to be in Nottingham for one day, then this is the restaurant you should eat in.

    Favorite Dish: The carpaccio of beef entree is superb and the rib-eye steak, with peppercorns and garlic, is a delicious main course.

    Antalya Restaurant: Turkish cuisine

    by iwys Updated May 25, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This restaurant has an authentic atmosphere. The decor, the chefs and waiters are Turkish, and sometimes there is even a Turkish belly dancer. Turkish food is, of course, very meaty. so, if you don't like a lot of grilled meat, this may not be the ideal place for you. Main courses cost around £9. Mixed kebab, for example, costs £9.25.

    Dim T

    by northeast80 Written May 24, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We were quite a large party of around 15 so we booked ahead and had the set menu to choose from at £15 each.
    Starters were prawn toast, dim sum served in nice woven baskets to keep them warm. We had seperate soy and wasabi sauce and ginger.
    For a main there three choices, all available as vegetarian with tofu. However one of my friends wasn't very happy when she was served a chicken dish instead of her tofu dish and was very releved when the none-vegi noticed before she eat the meat! This was the waitresses fault for getting them mixed up. We could have had Thai Green Curry, a Black Bean curry or a sweet and sour one.
    Desert was decidedly less Chinsese - chocolate foundu! Which was a great idea though we could have done with a lot more food to dip into the chocolate than we were given.

    Frankie and Benny's: Italian American

    by iwys Updated May 23, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Frankie and Benny's is a fun place to go to. Its decor is based on 1950s New York Little Italy, with black and white photos of people like Rocky Marciano on the walls. It has a great atmosphere, and a lot of people come here for birthdays. The main items on the menu are pizza, pasta, ribs, steaks and icecream. It is part of a massive chain, so you have probably come across one before. There are actually two in Nottingham, the other one being in Redfield Road, Lenton.

    Favorite Dish: One of the best value dishes is the Sampler Platter at £10.45, which is more than enough for two people. It is a large dish covered with entrees, served with dips and celery.

    Wagamama: Noodles

    by iwys Updated Jun 6, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Wagamama is part of a nationwide chain of restaurants. It has one of the healthiest menus in Nottingham, with the most popular dish being ramen or Japanese noodles. The restaurant has a minimalist design, with lots of light and very little in the way of decoration. You can either sit in a stool or on a communal bench.

    This is definitely the best place to eat noodles and drink sake in Nottingham. I like this place a lot.

    Favorite Dish: The Wagamama Ramen for £7.80 is a good introduction to this restaurant's food. Don't leave without trying one of their innovative desserts, like the white chocolate and ginger cheesecake or the tamarind and chili pavlova.
