Restaurant263 is the new venture of chef Keith. Wanting to make fine dining accessible, encourage sustainability and develop his own style of tasting menus.
We present dishes that represent modern Leicester that’s why our menus are eclectic. we are not afraid of using spice or taking influence from Asian cuisine because Leicester is a multi-cultural city. The menu is also inspired by what’s available at the local Leicester City centre vegetable market.

    Easily the best dining experience we’ve had in 10 years of living in Leicester. The tasting menu was stunning. Very difficult to choose a favourite from the tasting menu as each dish was exceptional. Serving staff and chef were knowledgeable, warm and genuinely interested in your opinion of the food. Thank you for a wonderful evening. We will certainly be back.

    Fantastic food at reasonable price, some of the dishes served were the best I have ever tried. Wine was also very good at the price, but no premium wine was available or any craft beer.

    An interesting experience. I thought the concept and courses were good, in particular the desserts. The portions are very small which is fine with 8 courses but felt that the initial selection of starters, which were delicious, should have been more than 2 mouthfuls in total. Generally, the restaurant felt like early days. The staff were lovely but inexperienced. Before each course, they rattled off what the dish contained but we never caught what they said ever. The drink menu was very limited . The bottle of rose wine was warm. I asked for the remainder to be chilled and they didn't seem to know what I meant. I imagine the courses will change fairly regularly so it will be interesting to return when they have been open a little longer.

    Best bit was being able to chat to Chef Keith at the end of the meal about what I thought - they were closing and I was last to leave........I needed a coffee to go with my petit four ;p Whilst there were some minor niggles with several dishes, overall spectacularly good I almost wish I'd gone for the vegan option - huge thanks for letting me change from lamb to coley (I had to Google to see that it's fish like pollock) near the start so they hadn't actually started cooking it yet...........the "tureen" dish with garlic oil, beetroot salad & the various sorbets were stand outs! My coconut rum & mango cocktail was also a great starter drink (''o) I really liked that Keith or Hugo actually came down from the kitchen to serve each course AND explain it............10000 steps a day easy but the place was weirdly empty ^(''.)^ Look forward to the next menus as it's fresher & better value than Six by Nico sites!

    Fantastic food can't fault any dish. Lights in the venue are too bright for my liking but didn't detract from the menu. Wine selection is quite basic, a great thing to see for the future would be drinks pairings with the dishes. Keep up the good work.

    A wonderful dining experience. So much care and attention has been put into crafting a beautiful taster menu at a very reasonable price. Leicester is very lucky to have such a unique place to spend an evening and the chefs were all clearly proud of their work and came out with each course to present the dishes and to expertly describe the flavours. The food is incredibly good and I would recommend anyone to go to 263 for themselves to experience it. Our party had a mix of meat eaters and vegetarians and everyone was pleased with what they were served. Allergies were taken very seriously from the start. Highly recommended. We'll definitely be going back again soon.

    The best food I’ve had in years. I was a little cold in the restaurant and the hand driers from the toilet were really noisy during our meal but none of that really mattered because the food was outstanding. Staff were lovely, they were struggling with shortages which meant our drinks were late etc but explanations given and very warm and friendly. Will definitely be returning and have recommended to others already.

    The food was fantastic, if they could just pay as much attention to the decor, the drinks and the service staff, it would be five stars all round. Staff were awkward and didn’t seem to know the product… Drinks were overpriced for the quality of the product and service (almost flat coke in my bourbon, no ice, cocktail had a little home made feel about it, no flair) Decor is uncoordinated and generic. Add a bit of style to those and this would be the best place to eat in the city, it is by far one of the best for food already.

    My third visit to Restaurant263! The seasonal menu, including the choice of main (lamb or chicken on this occasion) keeps things fresh and exciting for repeat visits. The best place to dine in Leicester, in my opinion!

    We looked at the tasting menu which seemed expensive if it wasn’t going to be our thing. We were seated in what should be described as a corridor offered two beers and then decided to leave. The young waitress ignored my husband completely only addressing me embarrassing when asked how we wanted to settle the bill. Also at 72 and 66 I don’t appreciate being referred to as guys!! We didn’t eat because we simply didn’t fancy spending £100 plus on a menu that was vague to say the least

    We saw a fantastic review of this place so thought that we would give it a go. We were not disappointed. So much thought, detail and effort go into creating their dishes, they are delicious. The taster menu provides a real variety, and the chefs work their magic on the ingredients. I never realised cauliflower or beetroot could taste so good. A wonderful find, we will definitely be revisiting this restaurant again very soon.

    Chefs came out to explain each dish and also asked for feedback on our favourite and least favourite dish. The food was brilliant and showed a high level of skill for such a great price (£38 for a 8 course tasting menu).

    We had 5 courses blind tasting menu. It was very fun and tasty experience. We can see the chefs put lots of efforts in to create interesting dishes with normal ingredients so that they can keep the cost very affordable. It would be nice to have a few more options on beer, especially nice crafty ones to go with the meal. We are looking forward to revisiting again when the menu is updated.
