Hi, yes we do gluten free pizzas and can do pizza without the tomato sauce. As the base takes more time than a standard base it would be helpful if you let us know in advance. If you don't want a tomato sauce topping we can... More

Description
A small restaurant in the heart of Seaton. We serve a wide range of Tapas and make changes to the menu each month so you can assured of variety! Our desserts always include a small selection plate where you can try a selection of 5 small dessert samples! We are fully licensed with a range of fine wines. We also use locally sourced produce whenever possible and our meat comes form Norman's the butchers next door. This is an eatery with atmosphere and great ambiance. We also offer a cocktail menu every Friday night. Booking recommended
