Aveika is a lovely restaurant and the food is really delicious with an amazing atmosphere. However, the price of the food and service is quite cheeky and deceptive. The waiter asked me and my partner if we wanted prawn crackers whilst we wait which we said yes to. At the end of the night when we got the bill, we noticed we had been charged for the prawn crackers which he never told us about. There was also added sneaky supplement charges which we weren’t aware of and then a £5 service charge on top of that. The service is great and the food is fantastic, but they easily add £10-£15 to your bill without being aware of! Definitely just bear this in mind when visiting- but I do recommend!

Starters were lovely however I felt the main courses were very overpriced. The atmosphere is great but the noise level is abit too loud and there are flashing lights everywhere. Very overrated.

It was just about ok. Made the mistake of telling our server just to bring the small plates as they became ready but the reality was they all arrived at the same time which was a little intimidating and then you rush through it whilst it is still hot/warm/not cold.
So overall, we just felt a bit rushed from start to finish.
Clearly a lively place as the noise levels increased between the time we sat down and when we left.

Avieka is a very nice restaurant, my wife and I went for our anniversary.
When we arrived, we were seated and drink order taken, we ordered food and it arrived after around 15 mins which is good. When it arrived the food was very nice.
Once we were served, service slowed down, the waiting staff ignored us for a while which is disappointing as the food and drinks were really nice.
Once we had finished we asked for the bill and were given a totally different table’s bill which was more than ours. Luckily I checked before I paid.
The ambience was a little dull and overpowered by the adjoining Avieka nightclub which had thumping music playing at 7pm.
Overall - food, drinks good. Ambience ok. Service average at best.

Booked Prosecco lunch , turned away from restaurant due to husband wearing shorts (dress not sports) it was 29c outside , said dress code was on booking email , showed it wasn’t still would not allow us in we had prepaid therefore we’re made to sit outside on wobbly small table in unbearable heat to eat. Service was poor , manager door staff arrogant .

We booked the restaurant for food however we were not allowed in as my partner was wearing smart black jean shorts which was annoying.

We decided to stay and eat outside the food was not worth the price. I was disappointed as I have heard so many good reviews however the food did not have much taste.

The woman serving us was lovely & polite - this was the most positive part of the experience.

The food was well cooked but relatively tasteless, the rainbow rolls stole the show and had the best flavour of what we ordered. The staff weren’t rude but they were the most dead behind the eyes monotone people who came across as hating their jobs. The nicest woman was a blonde manager bringing us the bill, had she served us it would have been a much nicer experience

Service was shocking, plenty of staff but seemed like they didn’t have the time for my table. Sat for half an hour before we even ordered a drink, to which we had to get the attention of the waitress to order every time.

The only thing that put us off was we were asked to finish are drinks as we just got them! As they needed table we only sat down at2.30 they asked for table at 3.45!!! They were rude as well and miserable! The young girls who served us asked us 6 times if we were finished with are good when we were still eating! Lovely food and drinks but put us off with the service

Food was stunning, they were night club music fairly loud during a early evening meal when the nightclub side wasn’t even open yet so it was a bit of a strange vibe, had to wait 20 minutes to order a drink during the meal, other than the music and wait for a drink it was faultless.

We decided to order 3 small plates each to eat tapas style. All of the food was very tasty, the only criticism was we thought the squid was slightly overcooked as it was a bit chewy. Service was good although my husband is never keen on a service charge so we decided to ignore this and leave a tip of our choice. The change was given back to us and my husband thought the attitude had changed.

Upon arrival I was welcomed by a friendly polite member of the team who quickly showed me to my table. Once I was seated another member of the team came and asked if I wanted a drink while I waited waited the rest of the party which was ideal. Through out the meal the staff checked everything was going well, if we wanted more drinks and then asked if they could take plates which is a refreshing change. The food was exceptionally well priced, full of flavour and very filling. The drinks made up the majority of the bill which I thought was a little on the expensive side. They do add a service charge to the bill with the comment saying its optional and to speak to the server. I don't particularly think its correct to put the paying customer in the position to have to have a difficult conversation. The only reason I left it alone is because of the pandemic and feeling sorry for the staff who have been out of work for some time. Poor decision from management.

After travelling up from leeds and arriving later than expected, the staff we extremely helpful and friendly and still managed to accommodate us, not only getting us seated in the restaurant area but also squeezing us in for a table of 4 in the outside courtyard area afterwards as we liked it so much and didn’t want to leave. Thankyou! We will be visiting again ❤️

The service was slow, the music played at a volume that made the furniture bleed, few of the staff were wearing their masks properly, nobody challenged the many patrons not wearing masks at all, and despite the slow service the staff still tried to charge a service tip without saying anything along the lines of "there's a service charge, we hope you don't mind". I've rated 2 out of 5 as it was a place we were able to get in to at relatively short notice and the drinks were OK. Food has been nice in the past though. Maybe go during the daytime.

One of the staff had an attitude from hell. Very rude & extremely cheeky.
I ordered a drink and did not receive it AFTER paying for it. She said she’d refund me & im still yet to be refunded. I also paid £40 for my reservation which is supposed to come off my drinks. And I paid for every drink, not one drink came off that £40 after telling the rude waitress multiple times. They then tried to tell us to leave almost 30 mins BEFORE our time was up as ‘they needed more tables’. We had 2 tables booked & some of our party off the second table got up to go to the toilet and they gave our table to a different group of people & went on to say ‘we moved tables’ we paid for those tables so we should be able to keep them if we get up to use the toilet! Customer service is absolutely shocking. & don’t think I’ll see my my money back in my bank anytime soon considering the waitress won’t even know what card it came off to put back into the bank as she wouldn’t take anyone’s orders separately as it was ‘too much of a hassle’ but proceeded to get restless & bratty when having to wait for 2 tables of 6 to work out the bill ourself. Terrible! Will not be back and don’t recommend.
