    Being vegetarian, I opted for the Moroccan tagine which was delicious and a good sized portion. Its nice to see something different on offer, other than the usual vegetarian options :) we shall definitely return soon.

    The food was fine but the menu seemed a little limited from the last time we went. However, we will go back at some time in the future to Fat Cat.

    Had a great night at Fat Cats, I was a bit dubious due to some other reviews but service was great and the food was good. My only criticism was that the menu was different from the online one and had to choose something else but overall good relaxing evening!

    To start apparently we weren't expected but there was enough tables so that wasn't too bad a problem. The menu was not very extensive and the starters were a long time coming but the actual food was good. The cocktails were very expensive for what you actually got. It's probable we won't go there again for an evening meal but a daytime meal perhaps.

    Once again we had a fantastic time at Fat Cat, nice food, great service just 1st class as always!

    The menu at Fat Cat in Nottingham was different to the menu advertised. The food was OK but could be better.

    A very nice meal at Fat Cat, cool surroundings and excellent value too!

    Looking forward to coming back to Fat Cat Notts, it was excellent!

    Great food and value in a buzzing atmosphere!

    Booked for dinner and cocktails with friends before cinema. Great food, ambiance and service. 2 for 1 cocktails went down well. Will definitely book Fat Cat again.

    Lovely meal and delicious cocktails! Difficult to talk due to live music, but overall a lovely evening.

    The chili was very good at Fat Cat apart from being less spicy than my brother makes it. The cocktails are more and more disappointing however as there seems very little alcohol in them, which affects the taste.

    Good food, good portion size. Very attentive Waiting staff. Would definitely go back.

    Menu not as advertised. Food OK.

    The portions were very generous and the quality of the food was excellent!

    Great service, great iced tea, a bit dark and noisy for my taste.

    Not been for a long while, but very good all round!

    One of the best meals we have had, the atmosphere was amazing and the food was delicious. Will definitely be going back again!

    The food was lovely and good value. Service was slow but they were very busy and our waitress said they were short staffed, it did mean that we didn't have time for a desert as we were going to a show so that was a little disappointing. Would still recommend though.

    A nice meal in a lively atmosphere, though sometimes difficult to enjoy conversations with the loud background music.

    Excellent value set menu at Fat Cat in Nottingham and very good drinks offers too.

    It had a really friendly atmosphere and you definitely got a lot for your money!

    Really enjoyed our evening there, a large party of 30 in the back did not disturb us at the front of house, although it did slow the service down a bit, but the food was wonderful!

    Very pleasent meal, good value, was a little dissapointed with the starter.
    Nice room ambience was warm.

    A bit surprised when the 241 cocktails were brought as 2 each. Good value Ladies' Night menu. Food very tasty and well-presented. Staff welcoming and helpful.

    Very relaxed evening with friends.

    Fat Cat is great place to eat quick food while out in a group. The food was above pub food though tasty with good service. Fat Cat make great cocktails as well, will be going back.

    We had to wait a long time to be served a drink, but the food was nice and good value at two courses for £11.95. Would go again.

    We had a very good meal last night.

    Requested a booth downstairs. Restaurant had translated this to table upstairs by the window? Very poor! Food was lovely and the waiter/waitress lovely when you could actually get there attention! Football was being screened and there was no way to avoid the noise overpowering the meal! would have been useful to know they were screening the game when the booking was made!

    Wonderful night. Staff very friendly. Food excellent.

    Had the ladies night menu (2 for £10.95 or £11.95 including cocktail) and was excellent value. Not full menu but plenty to choose from and huge portions too! Atmosphere was buzzing and service from the ladies upstairs was excellent. Not been to FC for ages but would definitely return.

    Great! fantastic value for money on the £10.95 two courses deal.

    Great pasta dish.

    We all had a lovely time. It was the first time at Fat Cats for some of us and i can honestly say when i orgainse another meal out i will look at Fat Cats again.

    Had a fantastic night, good food great company. The staff were very accomadating and attentive.

    As always good choice on mains, a little short of choice for starters and dessert. Very good value for money. Service great.

    Great value for money thanks to the Ladies night special offer with good food. We all had a fantastic night.

    Went on Thursday night which was ladies night: £9.95 for 2 courses and a free cocktail. Bargin. Would recommend.

    A restaurant with lovely ambience but waitresses all seemed to be in a bad mood! The food was ok but we were in the restaurant for a total of 2 hours 20 minutes because service was so slow. A lovely place to have just drinks though as there was a good atmosphere.
