    Disappointing. No warm welcome, slow service, some courses lacking in flavour, some very salty. Lacklustre end to a very good day out and certainly not worth the price sadly.

    We had a fantastic meal at Pupa last night, the quality of food was incredible. The service was good, but could’ve been better - there were several occasions we were left waiting for a drink, in the whole 2 hours we were only offered another round once, and even when we made that order they forgot two of the drinks. However, the overall service was good just could’ve been a better level- food again was incredible x

    Only downside was they forgot to bring our main so waiting quite a while. Food was brilliant, they made up for it with a free pint each and a baked cheesecake (delicious!) we hated meat platter, and pitta & olives to start

    5 of us went for a meal on Valentine’s Day. We were sat downstairs and they had decorated the room with lights and rose petals and table decor. The staff were friendly and attentive the food was really great. I think they had a more expansive menu for Valentine’s Day because the prices were different to what we saw online but overall we had a great time.

    I had a fantastic night with my family. The staff are professional and polite. They made me feel so welcomed and the manager was kind. The food is cooked fresh and there was no precooked food or microwaveable food which you find in many places. The tiramisu was fresh and homemade. Overall, I have no problems making this restaurant one of the best in the northern quarter. I’d visit again.

    I chose this restaurant based on previous trip advisor reviews, I was not disappointed, the food was really tasty, the staff lovely, it was quite noisy as there were a few larger tables, but it added to the ambiance of the place, its better to be busy & noisy than empty and quiet, we really enjoyed our visit, we would return and would definitely recommend to our family and friends

    Really enjoyed our visit. The food was delicious and portions are generous, highly recommend the goats cheese and halloumi starter dishes, as well as the brochette mains, and Greek salad side. We were seated downstairs and the staff were lovely and attentive, particularly Ioana. We'll be back.

    It was our first time there, and we was celebrating my birthday. When we first got there, the staff were very welcoming and friendly. We didn’t get the best seat at first, but they came over and advised they would move us to a lovely table in the window once the previous customers had left. The food was spot on, we got the sharing platter for two. Everything was lovely and a nice place to go for a date night. Great for location as in the middle of the northern quarter so plenty of other places to go after. I will definitely be returning. Thank you for a lovely experience :)

    Starters were great. Steak looked amazing, but I wasn’t in the mood for steak. My chicken kebabs looked a bit pink in the middle, but flavour was nice. Slightly pricey for what it was.

    We had the lamb supreme ( lamb cutlets ). Pork chops and chicken burger and chips. The side dishes we ordered were chips , Mediterranean rice, and roast potatoes. The lamb cutlets were cooked beautifully ( pink ), melted in your mouth. The pork chops were also described as tasty and tender. The chicken burger was given a massive thumbs up due to the portion and quality of the chicken. The rice for me was the only disappointment as it appeared to be out of a packet - however, it was still edible. It could've done with being a little bit warmer in the room downstairs, but it wasn't freezing. The staff were friendly and attentive without being intrusive. We will most definitely be returning
