I had booked this place for my husband birthday! It was just wonderful. Food, deco. The staff was friendly, on point. Food was served on time. We had a great time there. We just couldn't go home. We later moved over to their bar area, where everyone was professional.

NICE serves good quality fare at a reasonable price. Most importantly, it is one of the few good restaurants open on Sunday evenings.

A lovely place, with excellent food, very reasonable price and such a lovely staff. It is an excellent restaurant, with a really nice atmosfere. There are quite a number of different rooms so that one can easily organise a function, a party or a business lunch/dinner without being involved with the remaining part of the restaurant. It's great also to... More

Great central location, good food and friendly staff. All employees were under a training scheme and their efforts were noted. There was an enormous thunder storm when we went there and the atmosphere was wonderful. Lots of shaded parking too.

Good place to have lunch. Always parking and good prices for good food. The lunch menu is nice but try the specials where you can find some really good deals for about 70$

Found everything to be very good. Nice table by the water feature and service was good. They gave a decent wine list and a well stocked bar.

NICE was recommended to us by our taxi driver. Being foodies, we immediately loved the concept and made a reservation. The location and setting is lovely, and the service was friendly. To be honest, the food was just okay, but these are culinary students so that didn't offend us (and it looked good). All in all, we really enjoyed it.

The place is quiet, the food is great, the service also good, and the ambiance of the several types of rooms can give you like a private party table room to 12 people to a nice table for 2 or 4 room with only 4 tables, over...
