Booked a table at short notice for Sunday lunch. Everything was perfect: the staff were friendly and helpful, and the food tasted great and was immaculately presented.

We were in the area for business and stopped bye here for a meal. Some of the food was ok. The bread was good but the meat tasted shall we say "funny" It would appear from comments made by the serving staff that the chef monitors the room with CCTV.I don't like being watched. This restaurant has no atmosphere. Overall... More

We eat out every Saturday night and despite always trying new places, we cannot help but migrate back to nova. The menu's not massive but done to perfection, the bellinis are top notch and a great way to start the night. The desserts look fabulous but even if we avoid them we get complimentary petit fours! They know about food... More

The food is excellent and innovative with a French twist You will be served an amuse bouche pre dinner and other tasty extras.

As regular visitors to the Wirral from Wilmslow we have been introduced to Nova by friends. It's an outstanding restaurant always maintaining the highest standards from the quality of the food to the friendly professional service. Imaginative dishes lift this restaurant above the ordinary and the offerings often found in the burgeoning system of chain restaurants that seem to sprout... More

We enjoyed our last meal off the lunch weekday menu. BUT We wouldn't return as there is no right to complain or send food back to the kitchen without the chef/owner getting annoyed. I see in one review a regular diner was refused service. We find this amazing especially as recently 2 of the restaurants in Heswall have closed down.... More

This was a party of ten, the food was excellent the service very good ambience and decor extremely good. A special mention must go to the home made bread. If I had a gripe it was difficult to park handily, also a tad expensive. I will be back.
