Enjoyed the food but don’t think the restaurant looks as classy as it used to be.

All at 1539 made my Mum’s 70th Birthday lunch a special occasion. Food was amazing as always, service exceptional as always. Plus ŵe had a lovely sunny day so the views were stunning. My Mum felt very spoilt, so thanks again for making it the perfect birthday meal.

This is the 4th annual dinner I have held at Restaurant 1539 and yet again I couldn’t fault it. The service is impeccable and the food was amazing again, we were a group of 45 guests and the evening was just wonderful, I have already booked for my 5th dinner! Thank you to Andre and all his staff.

Excellent food and service, very accommodating as initially no vegan option but the chef went out of his way to make something. Very pleased and would highly recommend.

We had a lovely meal, celebrating our son's birthday. I particularly enjoyed my sea trout with lovely fresh vegetables. Calm and efficient service and a good evening all round.

Wonderful staff, they found out it was our anniversary half way through the meal, the sweet was served on a plate with the words written in chocolate "Happy Anniversary from 1539". This made the evening. Good food as well.

My friend and I enjoyed our fresh flavoursome lunch. The views from the windows are amazing and the awful weather even looked fabulous. The service was great and food cooked to perfection. We will be visiting again.
