Table of 3. First off, Good point - food is lovely. Now for the Bad. The lack of customer service is awful. Not just on this occasion but every time before...this time we were waiting 15 to 20 mins before they took our order and it was clear that we were finished reading the menus as we had stopped looking...

I was given a dish containing meat instead of the vegan dish I had ordered and only received a half hearted apology when I pressed the issue. Just as well I don't have any severe allergies - avoid this place if you do because you might be served nuts or eggs by the same 'simple mistake' I was served chicken!... More

I have been to Amicus many a time but my most recent visit was very disappointing. On a Sunday afternoon myself and my friend went there for lunch, I ordered a Honey Roast Ham, Brie, Roast Tomato, Mixed Leaves, Chutney & Mustard Dressing wrap with a side of fries. I asked the waitress who didn't seem overly friendly when placing... More

myself and my partner went for dinner here recently. We did not have a booking but were given a table. The restaurant was busy. There was a great choice on the menu and we were very happy with our meals. Great location too, close to everything.

It's a cute little venue. Foods nice - I had beef stew and it was good. The service wasn't that great. No check back, no water? - I don't get this. Why you have the water glasses on the table but you not gonna get the water?.. , we even got the food before we got our drinks. It wasn't... More

I went here with my boyfriend for lunch, the food was great and the staff were very helpful and friendly. I would recommend anyone wanting to go for something really nice to eat and get good service to try Amicus!

Went for late lunch on a Saturday as we'd been into town for a wander. Although the restaurant was very busy we were seated within five minutes of waiting. This is our second visit and I would certainly go again. Food was great and service fast and efficient. Good selection of food available with lighter options is desired.

When we first walked in the door , we saw that there was a staff member waiting at the till , however it still took him 2 minutes to even acknowledge that... More

We decided to meet our daughter for lunch(daughter on her lunch break)here and the guy showing us to the table said to my wife that he needed the table by 4pm and this was at 2 30pm. My reply in future to this will be "it will all depend on how quick your service is". My wife asked for a... More

Busy but very nice restaurant! Good food! Is always a queue so it's better to book a table. If you are a smoker you can find a table outside with really good heat above you. Nice decoration!
