Description: Balance restaurant in Bowness brings together the best of traditional dining with fresh ideas and a smart interior. The tables are beautifully set with linen and candles, the music is soft and ambient, and the atmosphere is calm and relaxed.

Ate here on sunday night, only one other couple dining when we arrived but few more ventured in while we ate, typical safe menu nothing to get excited about really, all tasted ok but could of been better, would return but would look elsewhere first.

My husband and I stumbled on this little restaurant and I am so pleased we did. I had the Smoked Salmon Pasta and can honestly say I haven't eaten anything as good in a long time. The owners of the place were so happy and welcoming and really made us want to return, not just to the lake district but specifically to the restaurant. Wonderful! It was very reasonably priced and definitely worth a trip!

We ate twice during our stay in Bowness and on both occasions were not disappointed. The food was beautifully cooked and presented and the staff were very welcoming. We will return again, the Lakes are one of favourite haunts and have been numerous times.
Fat Olives is well worth a visit.
Pleanty of choice and specials that don't break the bank.

We popped into this little cafe as it was so cold outside, and had the most delicous thick hot soup and then a sandwich which was very generous with it's fillings.

One of the best restaurants I've ever been to. Not too expensive, really friendly waiters and incredibly tasteful Italian food!
