Weekend away with friends. We booked about 5 days before as it's very popular. Food and drink was excellent. Our two waiting personnel were efficient and polite. We're planning our next weekend break and Avanti will be part of it. Thank you.

Have been regulars over the last five or six years on visits to KL. First time disappointed. Of the six meals we ordered three were Pizza. Find it very strange that an Italian/Mediterranean restaurant cant make a fresh pizza. Two other chicken dishes adequate but overpriced and third just bland in a bowl of over boiled tomato sauce.

shame,

We arrived promptly but were kept waiting for our table and our food.
The portion size of the calamari was disappointingly small, and squid is not an expensive commodity!

Usually great food, ordered 2 steaks, one was perfect the other was more well done than medium rare. My family are mainly all gluten free and recently there has been only 1 gf pizza base available, no gf bread/toast to go with starters and no gf crackers to have with cheese or any dessert. Ended up going to the Royal Hotel for a starter and then Avantis for our main. Really enjoy Avantis normally though.

Having eaten here on several occasions we were looking forward to visiting again. The food did not disappoint, it was excellent, very tasty and generous portions. The service however left something to be desired. It started off well , we were served promptly and efficiently with the starter and main course. We were then asked if we would like to see the dessert menu. We asked to have a little break and 45 minutes later we hadn’t seen anyone again. The serving staff seemed to be more concerned with chatting to locals at the bar. We asked for dessert menu’s at the bar but just decided to pay the bill and leave. Very disappointing.

Relaxed atmosphere, attentive and helpful staff. Range of dishes to meet most tastes and able to adapt a dish to be dairy free for two people in our party. Delicious food, we all enjoyed our meals. Definitely on our list to return to. Lovely evening.

No negatives at all.
Service was very good even though it was a Saturday evening, and a little short staffed due to illness.
Menu was very Good, and food standard was excellent.
I think that the menu wasn't overpriced, and also the wine list was pretty good and again not ridiculously priced.
Will definitely visit again

We were celebrating the special occasion of my son's 21st. A family group of five, we seated by the ground floor windows. The overall experience was a little disappointing due to the level of noise in the restaurant and bar area at the time of our meal. It was only afterwards, on a visit to the toilets, that I noted there is further seating upstairs. I think if we had been seated at a table upstairs then the ambiance would have been better and perhaps we may not have had to shout quite so much to hold conversation.

Due to a misunderstanding regarding time and place by two of the guests, two others sat around for quite a long time waiting their arrival. The staff were absolutely charming and considerate. When, finally, everyone arrived we ordered very late but again, nothing too much trouble and we all agreed that our risotto was outstanding.
I am just so sad that I live in Kent so it's not somewhere I can visit often.

The Avanti certainly lived up to its good reputation. The service was good considering that the place was really busy. The food was superb, a very enjoyable meal. Well worth the journey.
