Ristorante Sergio: The Godfather
This restaurant was tucked nicely away from the main streets and perfect for a hungry crowd of, well us!
Me and my eating habbits as usual had something to say about where we ate but I had a fab steak here and some garlic bread all served in an authentic, ambient surrounding with the italien chefs just behind us, two beautiful italien girls serving and a big guy, presumably Sergio watching carefully over everything. You got the feeling that if anything went wrong this would have things sorted pretty fast!
Favorite Dish: Steak again as the favourite, served with the salad I said I didn't want (what's new) but it was cooked to my liking and pretty lean.
A clean plate says it all!Add to your Trip Planner
"La Brasserie" at the Chester Grosvenor Hotel: the ultimate elegant lunch
La Brasserie is the restaurant attached to the Chester Grosvenor 5-star Hotel. It is open to non-residents for coffee, lunch, afternoon tea etc.
You feel very splendid as you go through the main entrance to the Hotel past the doorman - the entrance to the restaurant is on the left.
The atmosphere is expensive and refined and quite 'french' as suggested by the name. The restaurant is large with a separate area with sofas and low tables for coffee etc and then through to the dining room which has leather banquettes around the perimeter of the room and tables beautifully laid out, a discreet distance from each other. There is a wonderful stained glass ceiling in the centre of the dining room, allowing light to flood through.
The service at La Brasserie is very high as you would expect for a 5-star hotel. At least four different people will look after you throughout the meal and you will feel very relaxed and pampered. You are allowed plenty of time to make your choices and enjoy the food.
Although you do not have to be smartly dressed to eat here, it is worth dressing up a little so that you don't feel out of place, so no cut-offs and rucksacks!
Favorite Dish: I have to say that I nearly always have the same meal here. The 'Traditional Caesar Salad' for 7.50 pounds. It is prepared at your table, which, if you were not expecting it, can be quite surprising. Now, I know what's coming and I sit back and enjoy the show!
The menu is extensive and unusual, for example, Duck and Beetroot soup at 4.95 to Terrine of fois gras layered with smoked duck, grape jelly and brioche at 12.72 and that's just 2 of the 12 starters. There is also a children's menu from 2.50 to 4.25 and they do appear to welcome children and babies - which is nice for such a fancy upmarket place.
There is a wide range of prices for the dishes and wines so it needn't break the bank. On the other hand, if you are very rich, it is a good place to take someone you want to impress! "Cote de Beouf" for two at 40 pounds and the highest-priced Champagne is 105 pounds! (I didn't have that to go with my salad!)

Gabby's Creperie: chocolate fix!
On the advice of a choir girl at Chester Cathedral I walked a short 50 yards or so to find Gabby's Creperie. It's not much more than an enclosed crepe stand but there was a constant parade of what appeared to be repeat customers stopping by. I know I'll be back next time I'm in Chester.
Favorite Dish: If you're in need of a chocolate fix get the chocolate marshmallow crepe. It was a little messy but oh so delicious!Related to:
