'Great food, superb service and a friendly atmosphere make this one of the best places to eat out in Northampton.

The steak here is highly recommended, cooked to perfection and served with a smile! I have eaten here on a Sunday where the carvery is the order of the day, with a fantastic selection of meats and vegetables, and also a Thursday which is Steak night with meals starting at 2.95 providing a very good value meal with no denigration of quality.

This restaurant is highly recommended, one quick tip here is to pre book, especially on a Sunday to avoid disappointment.

'Had a great Authentic Italian meal here, a bit lacking in atmosphere but it was midweek and fairly quiet. The food and service was excellent and I would recommend it to anyone.

The meal also proved to be very good value coming to around 40 for 3 courses and coffee for two people.'
Nando's  Xscape Complex, Milton Keynes Tel: 01908 609503

We at Northants Online have often descended on this fantastic restaurant, and with it a new approach to eating out! The philosophy at Nando's is to grab some friends, order great food and tuck in!

An informal atmosphere with mostly chicken dishes on offer, all seasoned to your requirements. If you like spicy, you'll love Nando's!

Popular restaurant so probably advisable to book. Very good value, great concept and fantastic food - what are you waiting for?

'Spend a Friday evening at La Lucerna for an authentic Italian atmosphere! Small and cosy would best describe it, and although the decor isn't top notch, the food certainly makes up for it!

A 3 course meal for two would cost around £35, with generous portions making it an achievement to finish! Well worth a try!'
