We had a simply wonderful evening at this restaurant made all more entertaining by the interaction with the management. This place is unique. The food, although these days a reduced menu, is amazing. Not now Michelin starred but the food is just as good. I'd go there quick before the chef decidedes to retire again!

As a regular 'dine outer' my least favourite time of the week is Sunday lunch when establishments offering delicious and varied food in the evenings dumb down for the roast brigade. Not at Apicius where the same exemplary menu is offered for lunch service on Sunday. Six courses, one of which is sweet and another cheese that you can create... More

The whole experience at this restaurant was fantastic. Everything on the menu sounded delicious so we had a small portion of everything, like a tasting menu. None of the courses disappointed. The only thing that could have improved the evening was for the chef to come out so we cold thank him personally.

Ate the entire menu (was 6 dishes) Mr Creosote style, admittedly in smaller portions. All were delicious and some were absolutely outstanding, The service is unpretentious considering the quality of the food and the atmosphere is cosy and friendly. Cannot recommend highly enough.

Amazing food, unpretentious service, excellent wine menu and great cheeses. Will definitely be back, very glad it's reopened as was disappointed when it had closed and we hadn't had a chance to come!

What a find! We went for dinner on a Friday night, the food and wine was superb, the service attentive and friendly, good ambience and we never felt rushed. This is an absolute gem of a place.
