Amazing service and the majority of food was lovely, garlic petal starter was too hard and the carbonara was too greasy, pizzas were perfect 👍

Food was lovely but unfortunately service was not great. It seemed as though it was everyone’s first shift. Also the restaurant had ran out of the food and wine we wanted.

We had relatives up from down south for weekend and visited Fiume for a meal and a few drinks and we were not disappointed. We all had fillet steaks, the food was amazing and the service was first class. Our waitress was so attentive and could not do enough for us. We will be back soon.

I was really happy with our server, Rhiannon. She was so sweet and helpful and didn’t stop smiling (even under a mask!). She made conversation and made us feel very comfortable. What a lovely lady!

No happy hour so bill was ridiculous for 5 people. Understand business has struggled but don’t get greedy and charge a ridiculous amount. Won’t be back until offers are better.

My first visit since lockdown and very pleased with the food which was top quality and great value for money. The tables were spaced far apart which felt much better than before COVID.

Food was outstanding and really tasty. Unfortunately the loud family was in so noise level not great. No special on again when kids off school makes it more expensive and not good value.

The noise level was down to a rather loud customer shouting across to another table in conversation and letting her toddler run riot. Other than that I enjoyed my tea as always at Fuime . Thank you

Maybe chef changed since lockdown? Food not as good as we are used to especially sauces. Muscles tiny. Service not usual standard. Bit disappointing used to be our favourite restaurant.

We really enjoyed our meal at Fiume. The service was great and we were particularly impressed with how well they handled my partner's nut allergy. The waiter was aware of this from my special request note on booking and was more than happy to help us look through the allergen book.
The food was delicious and we were so full by the end of the meal. We were really impressed with the new decoration and layout of the restaurant and the ambience was really nice.
A very enjoyable meal and atmosphere, even during the current restrictions with Covid, the staff were hospitable and welcoming.

Thanks.

Mark the waiter was BRILLIANT
We have never had service like this in sooooooo long
My friends son has allergies and intolerances Mark went through every meal to check what he could and could not eat
But it came as effortless to him and ax if we were not causing him extra work
Well done Mark employee of the year 2021!!!

Have dined at Fiume for many years and also enjoyed it. However after last night we won’t be returning. The service took ages, food all looked the same and wasn’t even hot!
Restaurant was absolutely freezing, I actually had to put my coat back on and felt the whole place needed a good clean, which I was very suprised about due to extra cleaning being required because of Covid.
