Our first visit to Chez Denis and we were not disappointed. A very friendly welcome and relaxed atmosphere. The food was excellent and can recommend the salmon in creole sauce with spicy rice. Followed by coconut and honey cake with cream which was moorish. Well worth a visit.

You must hurry to visit Chez Denis in the heart of Norwich. You need to hurry because sadly for diners he's retiring, happily for Chef Denis, he's having a well deserved and earned retirement. We dined today, lunch time, the house Rose was lovely, we shared a bottle. The good lady had the Creole Fillet of Salmon was was beautifully... More

Very nice atmosphere with friendly chef. The starters we had were amazing, and the mains were also of very high quality and delicious. Would definitely recommend and revisit. Any fish on the menu is a must order.

We visited Chez Denis last year and on our two night stay in Nowich we ate here on both nights. The food was fantastic . Since then my husband has been diagnosed with a terminal illness. One of his requests was to eat another meal from this fabulous resturant. We decided to ask if it would be possible to arrange... More

We went with a big group of friends and had pretty much the whole restaurant to ourselves. We had planned and booked this in advance - so the chef had adequate notice to marinate the goat meat which was amazing. We had pre ordered menu for the whole group. The service was amazing and the food was amazing. The chef/owner... More

Me and my family ate here (again) for my birthday. As there was 13 of us we had pre ordered our food and it was all served together and no one was left waiting which can sometimes be a problem with large groups but not here! The flavours of the food are just stunning it is proper authentic Caribbean food... More

Very traditional Caribbean food. Every course was full of flavour, chickeb was so tender it fell off the bone, creme brulee was delicious! Owner is so friendly and comes to chat to you after service. You can tell you cooks to please his customers. Would love to go back if we are ever in Norwich again.

Just had an amazing goat curry, full of flavour and can be made extra spicy with Denis's home made hot pepper sauce, which you can also buy to take home.
