We were completely shocked to hear this restaurant had closed. This was a cosy restaurant which had the best service until the manager left. The quality of the food was unbeatable and the vegetables were the tastiest I have had in my whole life.

It was with sadness that we learned that Brabanecs was to close this week. It was our favourite restaurant in Northampton with a lovely atmosphere, great staff and delicious food. The Sunday roasts cooked by Matthew were, in our opinion, the best for miles around...More

Beware ! Booked family meal for 10 persons well in advance, queried the fact of high number of people and was assured no problem. 3 days prior the restaurant rang and cancelled the booking and while apologetic refused to give a reason for cancellation. Have...More

I've been here a few times, and it's excellent every time. The menu is phenomenal, locally sourced meat and game, super fresh fish and the only thing frozen is the ice cream. Only negative comment I had from my last visit to this one was...More

I appreciate that perhaps not everyone immediately aims to pair food and wine together - however unfortunately I am one of those people. The chef here really caters for great food, the menu is varied and provides one mouth watering dish after the other. I...More

I visited this restaurant last night with a friend, I have been many times before, and the food as usual was top class. In terms of value for money and fresh, quality food Brabanecs cannot be beaten. I had the mackerel as a main, and...More

I love Brabenecs and have been several times before. First with friends, then with family, and back again with my sister. Every time I have tried something new and it has been exceptional! However, each time I have been, I have waited at least 45...More

The food was excellent - contemporary style yet traditional flavours, served piping hot and excellent value for money with a wide choice. The atmosphere was lacking (although it was Tuesday night!) and the venue is dated but the food more than compensates. Only critical comment...More

We took over Brabenec’s in July 2007 and introduced a British menu using only the best fresh ingredients, changing our menu regularly in keeping with the seasons as much as possible. Our food is kept simple with no frills! It is all about the flavour and consistency of quality that we have worked hard on over the past few years. The same is to be said front of house, with skilled staff working very hard to create a warm and relaxed atmosphere in the restaurant at all times. At Brabenec’s we value all of our customers very much and as a thank you we offer a loyalty card. Every customer that dines with us is offered a 20 per cent discount card to return and use within the month. We look forward to welcoming you in the near future.
