I've been to Lussmanns twice for lunch: great quality food and very nicely presented. I think I had a salad decorated with pansies. Nice building too.

Amazing restaurant with fantastic service. The duck salad with a side of pomme frites was stunning and the steak was outstanding. Service was excellent. We can't wait to come back.

Can't recommend this place enough. The crab mac and cheese was sublime. The waiter made the day though. Pablo was attentive, fun and definitely one of the best waiters we have had.

Twice I had to send the mail course back for this reason. Also the side dish of vegetables was bland and starter was tasteless. They staff were v apologetic but at these prices its a pretty poor and wont be returning.

Description
Lussmanns is Hertford's busiest independent restaurant. Since opening in 2004, they have really come to understand our locals and what they want from their restaurant. Centrally located in the historic 'Egyptian House' (for Da Vinci Code fans, this was rumoured to have been a meeting place of the Knights Templar), this Hertford restaurant is bijou and full of atmosphere at any time of day.
