We had our wedding breakfast & evening reception at Masa in February this year. The decoration and atmosphere was wonderful all day- candles and flowers looked great. Staff was lovely & polite with all guests, no issues from the bar at all- good selection of drinks. Wouldn't say it's over priced- standard bar cost & what you expect to pay... More

Fantastic! Have visited a couple of times now with my partner and both times its been great! On top of the courses they offer there's always extras! A few olives etc as u sit in the bar before you eat. Then an amuse bouche which is always very tasty then also a pallet cleanser in between courses. Both times we... More

Although this is a higher end restaurant the food quality and unique tasting menus are incredible. The food is incredible and it always has something new and personal to try. I have eaten here on a number of occasions and honestly can not tell you how fantastic it has been EVERY time. From Sunday roast to tasting menus of themed... More

The venue is amazing! Really cannot fault the layout, decor or ambience of the restaurant. The staff we encountered were all lovely and service was excellent. Unfortunately, we felt a bit let down by the food which is a shame as we had heard very good things, maybe we just visited on an 'off' night? The 3 pig terrine starter... More

I am a repeat visitor to Masa. Decided to try one of their themed evenings - Chocolate Taster Menu. The menu was absolutely beautiful - nothing disappointed. Complemented with an excellent service from the front of house staff this proved to be another successful and enjoyable visit to Masa. I look forward to trying some of the other themed events...

When here with my other half the food was tasty and very good. But whilst we were there the fire alarm went off and the staff didnt know what to do, badly organised. We were eventually ushed into their outside bit which was too close to the restaurant if there was a real fire. When we returned inside people were... More

I've been in Derby for ever and never got round to trying this place, my loss. I visited in April with my Goddaughter to celebrate her 22nd birthday. We had a super evening, our waitress was friendly, relaxed and very knowledgeable about the food, which was excellent. My crab starter had a real punch to it, and then the flavour... More

This was our first visit to Masa and definitely won't be the last, the food and service were both very impressive. There were a number of touches which really added to the experience...the amuse-bouche, homemade bread, the knowledge and enthusiasm of the staff, as well as a lovely setting!

Service was great, beautiful venue but the food was just OK. Was expecting something a little more special for spending £230 for lunch. It just lacked a certain special something. wouldn't go back again which is a shame.
