We visited on Saturday night and walked in (without reservation) at 7pm. Despite being full with bookings for later that evening, we were accommodated. Service from the first greeting was A1. All staff were attentive without being over-bearing. The food was stunning. I squeezed down three courses and i had only intended to eat a main! This place deserves to... More

Spent Saturday evening, 18th March in this delightful restaurant. Staff friendly and knowledgable. Food was good and reasonable priced, menu varied. A lovely atmosphere. Would certainly go there again.

We were a loud group of 50 who staged a musical quiz between courses, yet staff coped fantastically well with each table served in turn (very organised) with excellent food at all 3 courses. The welcome was friendly, the service efficient, really tasty meals. Only 2 minus points: one for not asking if you wanted a small or large sized... More

As a small group we were obliged to order our meal and pay two weeks in advance for our Christmas meal. This was a massive disappointment, with the restaurant empty and quiet. My chicken liver and bacon salad was just a muddy mush, prawn cocktails tasted off and contained the smallest and soggiest shrimps ever! Turkey meal was tasteless with... More

Visited The Courtyard Restaurant with my boyfriend and a family member during a recent trip to Wells. We came in near the end of when they were serving lunches but fortunately the chef and staff were very obliging about it. I had the vegetable basket, while my BF had the roast beef and family member had an omelette. Top marks... More

The best place to eat in Wells. Food is always excellent, staff couldn't be more helpful and friendly and nothing is too much trouble. Home cooked, fresh, delicious food. Portions are excellent, everything is reasonably priced. A very welcoming restaurant.

Not been since it was Cafe Piano. Looks big with no piano and no stage. It is also now a Restaurant. For all that, it has lost none of its allure or stunning cooking. I couldn't resist the prawn cocktail (sad, I know). It was a wonderful take on an old favourite in a large cocktail glass half (vertically was... More
