    We had a fabulous experience in Host yesterday. Really lovely staff and fantastic food, thank you! The only things I'd change is that the music was a little too loud and it was too hot inside! But otherwise a great experience ☺️

    The food in Host is superb. We shared two starters the burrata and the crab tostados. So tasty. We then shared a pasta dish. Again fantastic flavours. We shared the chicken Piri piri. So tender and flavoursome. We then shared the cheese cake which is worth the trip alone.

    We celebrated my retirement with a delicious dinner at Host. We’ve eaten here several times and love the selection of small and larger plates to share. The top quality ingredients used in host make this a memorable dining experience together with the wonderful service and fabulous wine list. We will return soon.

    Food was incredible and the service from the staff was of the highest quality. They were attentive but not overbearing and were very informative on menu options and recommendations. They went out of their way to assist us with a seating requirement which was really appreciated also. The food itself was exceptional with great variety and flavour. Couldn't recommend more highly
