High quality food, with good portions.
Service was efficient and attentive.
Nice ambiance, high quality interior.
Prices are slightly higher than average but worth it for the food and service.

Amazing food and great ambiance! Beautifully decorated and perfect for any occasion. Me and my friends had a wonderful afternoon. The only downside to it was the waitress that seated us and took our order was an absolute delight, however her shift must've come to an end part way through our meal and we felt quite ignored by the other waitress when it came to paying; she just didn't seem too interested.

Stunning restaurant paired with faultless customer service! The dishes were full of flavour and bursting with freshness... somthing rare in restaurants now. I had the Chargrilled rib eye 10/10...AMAZING. My other half had the chicken Soulvaki... felt like we’re back in Crete - just how they make back home....Really glad I came across this new restaurant! Looking forward to coming again!

This was our first time at this restraunt, we were greeted with a nice smile and shown to our table by a very pleasent member of staff. We were told of the specials menu and left too it for a short time. Our food arrived and both the starter and the main were very well put together, nice touches but not too cheffy! Nice size portions, piping hot and served with good grace. The sweet menu was a treat, two items came out wrong but this was put right with a gracious apology, its not about if something goes wrong but how it's put write that counts.
We were even presented with a celebration plate, from a simple conversation where we mentioned it was our anniversary, we had not pre arranged this and it was a great little touch.
Overall the venue is really clean, smartly presented with great staff.
Thank you.... We will be back 👍🏽

I wasn't sure what to expect but Noel's was nothing but impeccable. The atmosphere was intimate and social at the same time. The service was the right amount of attentiveness. The food tasted delicious, was the perfect temperature and the right amount for the money. Whether you're looking for a romantic night out or a catch up with friends, Noels is the perfect way to spend your evening.

I think it's fair to say in all jobs we can make mistakes, and I'm very acoomidating in all areas. But having booked a table on monday evening, iour experience ended in upset and frustration in respects to Noel's Bar. We can forgive the waitresses who smashed the persecco glass over the young gentleman, but no offer of dry cleaning for a very expensive suite after a graduation was quite poor. However, the starters were satisfactory and were on time which helped build up on a harmless accident. Yet having spoken to the waitress about ordering mash potato was just brushed under the table instead we were given boiled patato- after she would speak to the chef. Perhaps miss communication?. The mains were not brought out all together- intact there was at least a 15 min delay on the chickpea burger (which was disgusting). There was an apology from the waitresses but nothing from the chef.... though it was taken off the order it still didnt make up for sitting at the table waiting on a empty stomach with others who waited as ther food went cold waiting. The restaurant did try to bring a birthday and graduation cake out (however it was also disappointing.

Overall we are realy sad. It was meant to be a big occasion and was spoiled by the chef and service. The chef we saw laughing on the way out with no apology. Overall we paid over £160 for what?..... we ended up getting a take away on the way back which was more worthwhile. As a beautiful restaurant its clear that it's not busy due perhaps to similar experiences. We are not people do moan and honestly believe the waitress did her personal best to rectify the mistakes . However it wasnt good enough.

Lovely food, the service was brilliant our waitress was called Charlie and she was brilliant could not do enough for us. I just don’t like when places put on a service charge we would have tipped regardless it just should be optional

We attended for lunch on a sunny Friday afternoon. The setting alongside the canal is perfect and tranquil and then the walked in to loud house music. Service was mediocre and food substandard for the price paid. Very disappointing as location and decor is good

The staff were great, very attentive always on hand to top up our drinks which was a nice touch. The restaurant itself is gorgeous and a really nice setting with the canal views. We didn't have a full meal just a platter but that was really tasty. Will definitely be back have even enquired about booking the private room for an event!

The food was tremendous and really good value for money, however the server that we had made you feel like everything was an effort, her interaction was unnatural with us and came Across as very false, as soon as she stopped talking her face would just drop and looked very moody.

I went to Noel’s for dinner and it was a very pleasant experience.

The ambience was very unique and presented a great level sophistication. I would return to try more dishes.

The service was great (quick, hands on, but not overbearing), we had an informative waitress to recommend us from the wine list. Service was also well timed and considered the order of the food well.

Would certainly return again.

Lovely roast dinner, very well presented. Great location for a roast by the canal. The added unlimited Prosecco was a bonus also! Service was second to none, thank you to everyone at Noels. Recommend to families on a Sunday!

Divine Divine Divine!!! I’m so glad we came across this gem right on the canal, you honestly feel like your by the sea. The canal flows so wonderfully and the food matches the scenery, absolutely divine dishes, the linguini al Marinara bursts full of flavour in your mouth! My husband had the Pine Apple chicken which he recommended to his friends! Why go to abroad when you have Noel’s!

What an opulent restaurant. From the food to the decor to the wine list I can not fault anything. FRESH FRESH AUTHENTIC FOOD! Must try the monk fish and my husband had the fillet on the bone - so tender and full of flavour ( they have set the standard so high) Service could not have been better. What a humble friendly team :-) See you again

Great food and service at this canal side restaurant. Slightly noisy in the bar area but once seated it was all good. The Mediterranean theme played out in the food with great fresh flavours. Good wine choice and staff were great. First time at this restaurant but won’t be the last
