Beautiful little Mediterranean restaurant in the centre of Kirkby Lonsdale. Very pleasant ambience. Attentive and friendly staff. Prices are very reasonable with delicious food. Don't miss this little gem tucked neatly into a block of shops in the high street.

Visited Kirkby Lonsdale a year ago and couldn't get into Avanti, a year was worth the wait, great food, staff setting etc. I'd come back to Kirkby Lonsdale just for this place. Its the number 1 restaurant for a reason, a must in Kirkby Lonsdale.
