Beautiful restaurant with themed tasting menu based on ‘book of the week’. Luckily managed to pick one of the three books I’ve actually read, what’s the chances!! Lovely staff, talk you through each course, and a different wine to match each course, highly recommend!

an assortment of architectural styles, and its cafes
and bars are frequented and loved by the enthusiastic
crowds. Grand and magnificent, the striking star of
the district is the Great Synagogue, the largest in
Europe and one of the biggest in the world. Distinctly
