The food was FANTASTIC! The type of food you find yourself dreaming about for no reason... the image of the plate when it first arrived, food steaming, on your table, the first time it touched the tongue setting off taste buds that you never knew existed.Although the cafe is open for breakfast, the evening meals are the best. I had vegetarian moussaka.The presentation was faultless and the taste should be illegal it was so good. Without doubt the best vegetarian meal I have ever eaten. The lamb meatballs were, apparently, equally as good.Don't even get me started on how unbelievable scrumptious the dessert was........

Wonderful - review added on Thu 25th Aug 2005

The atmosphere of this small restaurant is relaxed and modern with lowered lighting to create a warm ambiance. The service was unrushed allowing us time to fully appreciate each course and enjoy our evening to the maximum. The menu is very varied to include a couple of safe options for the less adventurous along with some out of the ordinary dishes for the more daring diner. Overall a truely enjoyable evening and will definitely be returning with friends and family to introduce them to this exciting discovery.

Cancelled Booking!!! - review added on Wed 19th Dec 2007

My partner booked this restaurant for 29th December back in November. On 17th December ( over two weeks later ) the restaurant phoned her saying that there was a problem with the booking as they had a party of 35 in that night and asked us to move to another night. So either these guys can't run a booking system or they bounced us in favour of a larger booking!!!! Not exactly professional!

What has happened to ceiturica - review added on Sat 22nd Sep 2007

When it first opened I enjoyed going to ceiturica for breakfast. The food was excellent and the service exceptional. In the past six months I have been for dinner there which I found overpriced for the standard of food served. I also recommended the cafe to two friends for breakfast and was very embarassed when they came back and told me they had waited an hour to be served and then their food arrived seperately and cold. When they asked to see the manager they were rudely told that there was no one who could help. I went for breakfast today and found that the standard of the food and service has dropped here too. It seems that, perhaps due to the initial success, they have stopped trying which is a shame because it was good. I will not be going back in a hurry, if at all, as there are many other better priced cafes in the area whose food and service are at this time far superior to that currently at Ceiturica.

Ceiturica still great - review added on Sat 25th Oct 2008

That other reviewer must have had a bad day, because Ceiturica had always been fantastic as a cafe and as a restaurant in my experience. Unfussy and relaxed, friendly staff, and amazing food. In the morning and afternoon it's a continental cafe with a well-priced breakfast menu (french toast, fruit, syrup and cream for £3,50) and in the evenings the more mediterranean/persian dishes have just been amazing (wasn't so happy with the pasta though). They seem to have taken some of the tagines off the menu which is a terrible shame (it would have got a 9 otherwise). I've been proud to take visiting friends here, and am going there tonight. You all ought to be jealous.

Amazing - review added on Fri 12th Dec 2008

I have eaten at Cafe Ceiturica twice - one lunch, one supper - and on neither occasion could I find a fault. The food was delicious and the servings ample, the service was impeccable and both evening meals were excellent value for money. I'd go again and recommend it to others.
