Jamie's Italian - Super Lunch Deal Review

Monday, 29 February 2016

Last week we enjoyed a family meal at Jamie's Italian in Milton Keynes. We've never been to a Jamie's before, so we jumped at the chance when we were invited to review the restaurant.

I asked my parents to join us for lunch as a treat. Milton Keynes is about half way between us both so it's a great meeting point.


On arrival, Little Miss A was given a 'Little Pack of Fun' and my Mum had also bought her some new dinosaurs, so she was happily distracted whilst we looked over the menus and waited for our food.

We ordered from the Super Lunch Deal Menu which is available Monday to Friday from 12pm to 6pm and is very good value with 2 courses from £10.95. You choose from a small selection of dishes - 4 starters, 6 main courses and 4 puddings. We were offered a kids menu for Little Miss A but she is so hit and miss with her food, that I thought she would just share some of ours and I was right.

Mr MoaB was the only one to opt for a starter - Fritto Misto. Little Miss A was offered a small bucket with a selection of bread and breadsticks. A great idea to keep the kids satisfied whilst they're waiting for the meal to arrive. We all pinched a bit of her bread and it was really nice so we ordered the Artisan Bread starter from the normal menu to munch on whilst Mr MoaB enjoyed his starter.

My Mum and Mr MoaB ordered the Italian Steak & Fries (£2 supplement), whilst my Dad and I opted for the Tagliatelle Bolognese. They were good size portions - just right for lunch, leaving room for the puddings - the Epic Brownie for me and the Italian Apple & Blackberry Pavlova for both my Mum and Dad. The puddings were a really big hit!

Here's what each of us thought of our meal at Jamie's Italian Milton Keynes:

Mum: "Good service, great company a flavour-some steak and a Pavlova to die for - what more can one ask for!"
Dad: "Pleasant dining experience. Nice food, good service and good value for money. One complaint would be the hard chairs - sore bum!"
Mr MoaB: "Really enjoyed my Fritto Misto starter, a lovely combination of fish and calamari. The steak as a main course was well seasoned and delicious. Little Miss A thought so too!"
Me: "Very nice family meal at a great price. Main course was just the right size portion to leave me room for the best brownie I've had in a long time!"

If you're looking for somewhere that is family friendly whilst you're shopping in Milton Keynes, then this is definitely a good choice.
