    The Apex never disappoints

    Attended Elliot's on Friday 20 Oct as a treat for my frend's birthday. We were on the wine and dine deal which is fantastic value. The quality of the food, service and atmosphere was fabulous. I love the Apex restaurants and have dined in them many times over the years and have never been disappointed. I have also recommended them to many of my friends. I will certainly be back soon.

    Will definitely be back and spread the word

    Had a lovely meal as usual. The service was amazing by Alvaro. It was a new menu which was very nice. We had the set menu which cost £15 for two courses which was great value for money. We were the only people in the restaurant and then one more couple arrived. We feel that this is a hidden gem and more needs to be done to make people aware of this fabulous restaurant.

    Lovely place, standard food

    The 2 mains for £14 offer was really more of a lunch deal as several of the options were sandwiches which came only with crisps. Wasn't quite enough to fill us up even with a side of parmesan fries (which were the most delicious part of the meal!) The staff were very attentive and the place had a nice buzz. A band was about to come on as we left which I'm sure would have added further to the atmosphere. Lovely place but I wouldn't rush back for the food.

    Great value for money lunch deal

    At £6.95 for two courses this is a great place for lunch. The portions are large and the food is tasty (although the risotto could have done with something extra), and the drinks aren't expensive either. Ideal for a show at the Festival Theatre.
