Restaurant Philosophy

Novelli at City Quays is a stylish Mediterranean and French influenced brasserie open all day offering lunch and afternoon tea through to dinner, a great place for after work cocktails and tapas at our bar.  Why not enjoy al fresco dining on the terrace when the sun is shining.

Bon appetite!
