We had a lovely experience and the restaurant provided a lovely atmosphere/ambience. The staff were friendly although service was a bit slow (having to wait for our plates to be cleared between courses). The food was mediocre - this was disappointing as the menu looks very nice. The food was not very tasty, although it was presented nicely.

I do like the restaurant however menu hasnt got much to offer its either steak or fish, on arrival there were too many waiters around the desk chatting. Made sence to me why i had to ask where my drink was on 2 occasions... more attention to detail as waiters should be more focused on tables that need assistance.

The place has lovely decor, with an art deco feel to it and the music created a nice atmosphere. There was a good selection on the menu and it's quite pricey but we'd decided to treat ourselves and we weren't disappointed. Our food was amazing and my waiter's willingness to replace my main when I'd made a mistake in my order was very kind.

We had a fantastic time at Noels. We went for lunchtime so it was a bit quieter but that didn’t detract from the experience at all. The staff were super friendly and I would definitely recommend this restaurant to friends and family. Thanks for a lovely lunch!

Always great to return to Noels! I was really looking forward to celebrating my mother’s 50th in August, but due to Covid guidelines at the time, we had to cancel. Noels were really good about and it was much appreciated as it was a large booking.

Hence at every opportunity I continue to return. Food is great as is the service. Recommend the monkfish and the cheesecake for dessert! Will continue to return!

Food is excellent and I have been several times and never been disappointed with the quality however going on a Friday evening was quite a different experience. Maybe as people are going out earlier and getting drunk quicker with the present circumstances we found it really noisy and lots of drunken screaming from several parties. Manager gave us a free cocktail each to apologise for the craziness which was unexpected so thanks for that.

Excellent overall experience. Food ( Seafood Platter followed by the seafood linguini, finished off by a fresh pistachio cheesecake was impeccable. Very good wine list. Covid-19 safe and service was delightful. Already booked for another day.

The best date night of my life!!
My husband booked us to have dinner here and it was the best "date night" of my life. The food was exceptional. The service was outstanding. The ambience was warm and welcoming. We stayed here for over 3 hours eating and talking and drinking ( cocktails are excellent ) This is a must do for a special occasion. We will be returning very soon!

We wanted to express our sincere thank you to Noel’s and the staff!

Unable to seat us at 8:30 as per our reservation because the restaurant was “busy”. Food and wine was good maybe even very good but the service was incredibly slow. Staff very friendly and attentive but the overall experience really disappointing and limited by an overwhelmed kitchen.

The table we had was at the back of the restaurant. It was under a cold draft and quite out of the way so the ambience and service wasn’t as good as we had hoped for.
The drinks menu was lovely and the cocktails were very nice.

We were left disappointed by the food. Although the menu seemed fairly good, we had scallops and prawns to start and then we ordered steak and muscles for main, it was a let down. The food wasn't very exciting or tasty. The scallops were nicely cooked and personally I did enjoy those but my partners King prawns were bland and his steak was below standard. He asked for a rare steak and received medium well done. For the cost of the meal, I would have expected a much higher standard.

Despite a beautiful interior and amazing service the food was very over priced for what it was and wasn’t that tasty or as amazing as it should have been for the price. However I could not fault the staff.
