Nestled in the heart of Temple Quarter, with views overlooking Temple Gardens, Recess offers a wide variety of dishes that can be enjoyed at any time of the day or evening. Recess offers fantastic value with light bites, an array of burgers, salads and pasta dishes in a modern setting. The recently refurbished outdoor terrace is very popular throughout the year with young professionals and our weekend revellers, with a retractable canopy and heating for your comfort. The recent enhancements provides both lounge seating and restaurant style for you to enjoy throughout the year. Continuing on our reputation for providing excellent value and high quality food over the years in Recess, our newly appointed Head Chef's creative approach to local and international produce ensures this is at the heart of all he does.
