Working in the industry, I have been blessed to have eaten in some of the worlds best restaurants. The modern trends of deconstruction, fusion or molecular gastronomy have no place in Michaels. A food philosophy based on traditional Italian simplicity is almost perfectly replicated in this unassuming venue.

Anthony (The Chef) is truly a genius. I have probably tried 20 items on the menu from bruschetta to lamb back strap and everything he creates is packed full of flavour and devoid of pretence. With everything made fresh on the premises including the bread, this is truly is a place you can dine at least once a week.

Walking in on a Sunday night to a busy restaurant is always a good sign. Food was beautiful, very filling, and served quickly.

Always enjoy the food, great service. The only drawback is that when the restaurant is full you can not carry on a conversation with people on the other side of your table as it is so noisy

Everything to eat at Michael's is delicious, but I also had the best steak I've ever had there. Atmosphere can be quite crowded and noisy sometimes, but friendly.

I went to Michaels for a friends birthday, I had not been there before. The food was fantastic and the atmosphere was great. The staff were polite and efficient, even though the place was full.
I highly recommend this restaurant.
