Great ambience .A totally different feel to your regular setting. Had pot of tea with scone,jam and cream all served using bone china. Jam and cream lovely but scone could... More

Atina K, Owner at Atina Kitchen, responded to this review

Dear Simon, thanks very much for the double visit - so pleased you enjoyed it, both times. It is uncanny how many people try us out during the day and when they come back in the evening are really knocked out by the food and service. Hopefully we will see you a bit more often down the "wrong" (but improving... More

Atina is a centrally located eatery in an appealing and comfortable set of rooms with considerable character. There is quite a "bookish" theme to it, with plenty of books about to pick up and browse, and the menus presented inside back copies of magazines - my daughter spent quite a bit of time reading the edition of the National Geographic...

Best breakfast I've had in ages, loads of choice. The rest of the food on the menu looked fab too. Lots of passion for food goes in to this menu... would happily eat anything on it! Great service & coffee. Loads of choice for veggies. Will defiantly be in here when we are back in Chester next.

This was my second visit to Atina Kitchen and the food was delightful, the atmosphere was warm and very friendly and the cocktails were great. The gnocchi for starter was made to perfection and all of the food was a lot better than the Mediterranean food I've had in the UK before - very authentic. I'd recommend this to both... More

Thank you Kristina for the very informative review. We do try to cater to as many tastes as possible while keeping the menu to a manageable size to allow us to make it all fresh in our ( what seems increasingly small ) kitchen. See you when you are next up our way ! More

Had a quick lunch here today and was totally impressed with the food and service . Didn't know a cheese & ham toastie could taste so delicious and the sweet potato fries were perfect . The dip that was recommended was also very tasty. We can't wait to return and sample the evening meal . 😀

Came here with my girlfriend this evening and it was brilliant! Super friendly staff, delicious food and lovely atmosphere! I had the pork ragu pappardelle which was amazing, the pork was so tender! Meanwhile, my girlfriend had the salsiccia tagliatelle which was bursting with flavour! I wholeheartedly reccomend this restaurant!

Visited Atina for a Saturday evening meal. Not the most atmospheric place in the world but the food was really good & all the staff seemed genuinely interested in making your visit as enjoyable as possible, which goes a long way.

Nice quirky restaurant with additional hidden seating at the back so don't be put off if it looks full through the window. My breakfast (Attina breakfast) included two pork and leek sausages, two rashers of bacon, two poached eggs (you can choose what eggs you want), mushrooms, beans, a baked tomato and thickly sliced fresh toast. I did really enjoy... More

Description
Enjoying & sharing great food, drink & conversation with family, friends & even strangers (at times) is where we take our influence from. It's how we grew up. Although our roots are firmly in Italian cooking techniques, we love all cuisines & cooking styles at Atina Kitchen & this is reflected throughout our menus.
