A converted grocer’s shop houses this excellent restaurant, producing exciting modern tastes – and grocery furnishings are still in evidence in the décor of the light and airy dining room. There's a sitting room area, from which you can see the chefs at work.
The kitchen offers a brave modern menu of small tapas-type dishes, based on those of the Mediterranean, these change a little on a daily basis, but they are typified by ‘Charcoal-Grilled Leeks with Yoghurt, Chili & Dried Mint’; ‘Turkish Falafel with Tahini Sauce’; ‘Cornish Clams & Mussels with Chicken Stock & Saffron Potatoes, Parsley & Garlic’; ‘Slow-Cooked Octopus with Peas, Potatoes & Mint’; ‘Charcoal-Grilled Lamb’s Breast, Slow-Roast Tomatoes & Tzatziki’ and ‘Slow-Cooked Rabbit with Marinated Peppers & Morcilla Burgos’.
Finish with something like ‘Flourless Chocolate & Caramel Cake with Vanilla Ice Cream’ or
'Lemon Meringue Tart – or one of their excellent artisan cheeses.
Service is both friendly and professional.
