Excellent food and service. I had the tagliatelle to start and fish stew. We were seated on the upper level. Nice atmosphere not too noisy.

Lussmanns St.Albans is situated is in a beautiful position so close to the cathedral. The restaurant is on two floors and I would recommend that you book a table to make sure, as it does get busy at weekends. The food is delicious, would you believe even the cabbage is tasty! Modern,clean and tasteful decor, a lovely place to eat.

We went as a family for mothers day, but its difficult to write a review where the author had a poor meal, but two of five of us had a very good meal? But there are some telling attitudes to relay. I was not expecting tat the menu would be restricted to a mothers day special only, so that's a... More

We'd been here several times in the past so thought a revisit was due. The restaurant was busy, we were shown to our table, drinks ordered. The menu was small with a few choices, there was a specials menu too. The food was ordered and arrived, a 'well done' steak arrived 'medium' Ooops not good, it was returned to the... More

And fully satisfied. I had Devon crab and macaroni cheese for starter and duck leg confit. Happy with the choices, and would come back for more. Friendly waiting staff!

Booking was easy over the phone..we had been given vouchers (a very thoughtful present :-) which we put towards our meal. I enjoyed whitebait, fishcake and lemon posset and my hubbie had seasonal soup, main course (sorry cant remember) and sticky date pudding..food delicious and flavourful, service exemplary. We had the special set menu which has limited but good choices... More

We enjoyed a 3 course dinner at Lussmanns for our Christmas party. The starters and desserts were tasty, however my main stood out the most. I enjoyed a very tender, delicious duck - best I've had in a while. Atmosphere was great and the staff were very friendly and attentive.

Having moved from St Albans three years ago we really miss Lussmans. There is nothing like it in Malvern or Ledbury. So going back there with friends -- would it still be as good? I think it is better. Very good service, friendly and efficient without being ott. My hake was cooked perfectly and the wine and beer selection is... More
