My sisters hens was coming up and she requested something more low key. So we decided to have a bridal/ hens dinner at Moda restaurant and it was fantastic. The staff were very attentive and so flexible, we were able to play our own music and even have a slideshow which included all the photos of the bride to be... More

Friday lunchtime in the city, Moda was fairly full with diners, both larger groups and smaller tables when we were seated. The chef is Spanish, but the Maître French, and the European vibe is obvious. Loved the olives and ciabatta bread followed by 3 mixed tapas. The servings were quite small but delicious, in particular the sardines. Extensive wine list.... More

We tried here with some friends after wanting to try it out for a while. We had booked in for a Saturday evening, it was pretty busy which gave the outdoor setting a nice atmosphere. Although dining outdoors in winter it wasn’t too cold nor were we melting from too many heaters nearby. We all decided to have ‘Javier’s Table... More

Have been wanting to visit Moda for a little while now. Dined here on a Saturday night. Restaurant was fairly busy and outside setting nice. Seemed like a good balance of heaters around so temperature not too bad. We all decided to go with the chefs choice for three courses. I couldn't fault any of the food. The black pudding... More

The food at Moda is really good. Our share plate of 3 different starters was great; liver parfait was silky smooth and served with an excellent Pedro Ximenez jelly, jamon and melon was fresh, grilled sardines were less successful being small fillets rather than the whole fish we had been expecting. Mains of duck confit and delicious stuffed zucchini flowers... More

Dined here recently and the food was very good. The entrees and desserts were yummy but the mains were the standout. They had a special of beef cheek which was incredibly delicious! We also had the duck leg which was just falling off the bone - yummo! The croquettes for entrée were also really tasty. Pleasant atmosphere however as the... More

we have been to Moda several times and always find the food wonderfully fresh, delightfully tasty, light and full of flavour. Seasonal menu, lovely produce. Great restaurant, wonderful service and always a pleasure to dine there.

The title depicts a perfect restaurant. Javier's table experience consist of a chefs selection of entres, mains and desserts. The entres are really something, light and really tasty, I wanted more!! Mains were well cooked and season, not overly amazing. The desserts were really good as well. In house made chocolate mousse, I'm not a big fan of mousse, but... More

It was our first time at Moda last night and what a great night it was. The food, service and ambience were all wonderful. We had Javier's table and it was exceptional. We can't wait to return to sample the rest of the menu.
