Lilac Cottage Tapas Bar is relatively new to the dining in scene in Prestbury but has wasted no time in establishing quite a name for itself. It offers a delightful selection of Spanish and Mediterranean-style tapas and mezze, as well as a fine list of wines, cocktails and beers. Of course the most brilliant thing about tapas is that it’s built for sharing and social occasions, and given Lilac Cottage’s location on New Road – right in the heart of Prestbury and just a short stroll from the train station – it’s an excellent spot for all sorts of gatherings. The food is as beautiful to look at as it is to taste and the service is always warm and welcoming. We love Lilac Cottage Tapas Bar and it’s absolutely worth a trip from wherever you are in the Macclesfield area. Reserve a table now.
I had a friend staying with me for the week and we just wanted a casual light ‘eat out’. Lilac cottage fitted the bill exactly for us. Charming staff and very helpful. We were dining on a Wednesday evening and good for them, it was extremely busy, but not unpleasantly so, it was a good atmosphere. It did mean we had to wait to eat, which I suppose wouldn’t suit everyone, but it didn’t bother us. We booked for 7.30 and our food arrived about 8.15. The food was excellent and a very varied menu of choice.
Restaurant excellent but they don’t take bookings online so reservation with you did not work! Need to phone them up to make reservation the old fashioned way
An excellent addition to Prestbury - and it's proving very very popular. The food and overall ambience is just perfect. Even on a Sunday night. A few of the dishes were no longer available, but still, a great choice. Good selection of wines too. Can't be faulted.
Excellent food. We were on a slightly smaller table than would have been ideal and there were other larger tables which seemed to be free during the time we were there.
Good friendly restaurant, food good with good selection of Tapas on the menu. Booked online with through Quandoo 10 days before, had a confirmation but when we arrived they did not have the reservation. Found us a table and would suggest a telephone call instead. Would recommend a visit. Friendly staff
Food was nice, tasty and good choice on menu and specials. The food could have been a little hotter (temperature). We all enjoyed it. Service was fast initially when we arrived as it was quiet, but later it was slower as the restuarant was busy. Maybe they need more serving staff?
Food delicious service hit and miss takes a while to get drinks order and menus. Then some of our order didn’t arrive. If they could get the service as good as the food you would have a perfect restaurant
