We visited on xmas eve and we chose from the xmas menu. 2 of our party wished they had chosen from the normal menu as there was more choice. I was very pleased with the jerk chicken. Overall we had a nice time and look forward to returning. Also the rum punch was gorgeous

My son and I had lunch here just before Christmas and the meal was very well cooked and very well presented. The staff were very friendly and the prices reasonabe. The restaurant itself is by Looses Cookshop just off Red Lion Street - don't walk past the entrance to the passageway. Well worth a visit to a well run and... More

Before I start, I have to admit that I have absolutely no experience with Caribbean/Creole cuisine, so my comments are simply based on the taste and quality of the food, not any past experience or benchmark on which to base my remarks BUT.....the food is DELICIOUS !! I am a great believer that when there is ownership of the business... More

My wife chose this venue for my 50th, I had been before and enjoyed the food so I was not unhappy about this at all. Family members travelled many miles to be there and my wife had left some 50th birthday decorations to be put out (she was miffed however when they hadn't all been done as agreed). Nevertheless, as... More

We found Chez Denis by accident coming out of Looses cook shop while Christmas shopping. We were then thinking of lunch and the wonderful aroma of the restaurant reached our noses. We were quickly shown to our table. We selected from the toasted sandwich selection but the menu was much wider. Our food was well presented and service was faultless.... More

She told us that they didn't usually open on... More

We used to go to Denis' restaurant out at Easton. Chez Denis has a similar exciting menu, with beautiful waitresses. Well, that's Denis' style, of course! Atmospheric, Cosy, great meals, friendly staff. I loved the Cajun Chicken Curry. My wife thought the Chicken Roti was great. Sorry - photos only of avocado salad and eggs Florentine. Forgot to snap the... More

Having eaten in the restaurant many times myself and my family were delighted at Denis launching his very own cook book! We attended the charity book launch on 3rd December and what a tremendous evening this was, the restaurant was full to the brim with people supporting both Denis and the sickle cell charity. The book has numerous flavourful French/carribean... More

The food, the presentation, the service and the personal attention from Dennis. Dishes were explained by the staff when taking orders and Dennis himself took time out to ask our opinion on what we had. If you go, ask him if you can try a tot of his special rum...wicked!
