My mussels were huge and in an extremely delicious sauce. three of us had duck which almost melted in the mouth accompanied by a lovely selection of English... More

We visited Chez Denis last year and on our two night stay in Nowich we ate here on both nights. The food was fantastic . Since then my husband has been diagnosed with a terminal illness. One of his requests was to eat another meal from this fabulous resturant. We decided to ask if it would be possible to arrange... More

We went with a big group of friends and had pretty much the whole restaurant to ourselves. We had planned and booked this in advance - so the chef had adequate notice to marinate the goat meat which was amazing. We had pre ordered menu for the whole group. The service was amazing and the food was amazing. The chef/owner... More

Me and my family ate here (again) for my birthday. As there was 13 of us we had pre ordered our food and it was all served together and no one was left waiting which can sometimes be a problem with large groups but not here! The flavours of the food are just stunning it is proper authentic Caribbean food... More

Very traditional Caribbean food. Every course was full of flavour, chickeb was so tender it fell off the bone, creme brulee was delicious! Owner is so friendly and comes to chat to you after service. You can tell you cooks to please his customers. Would love to go back if we are ever in Norwich again.

Just had an amazing goat curry, full of flavour and can be made extra spicy with Denis's home made hot pepper sauce, which you can also buy to take home.

Found the food ok but nothing special. Waitress friendly but the owner seemed keen for us to leave and was noisily resetting the tables. Shall not be in a hurry to revisit. Disappointing!

Fell upon this while visiting a kitchen store opposite,not located on a high street but found on a side street and well worth the detour. The menu has a French / Carribean twist as the owner chef is St Lucian Nice menu with lovely selection to suit many tastes. Chicken Roti was authentic and jolly good,as was the chilli beef... More

Visited Norwich with friends and we were introduced to this charming little restaurant. Absolutely wonderful in every way. Denis and all his staff were warm, welcoming and friendly and the food was beautifully freshly cooked and attractively presented. Delicious! I will certainly return when next I visit Norwich. Denis's new recipe book is a delight and the recipes well presented... More
