I booked the table using the on-line facility. That was really straightforward. I received a call during the day to confirm that the table was still needed which i like as it confirms they have the booking.
Arrived at the restaurant at 7pm and shown directly to our table. The restaurant was proably 1/3 full at this time (Thursday night).
We ordered our aperitif at the same time as our meal and was a bit disappointed that whilst this was bought first, the starter was served before we had finished. No real issue, but it would have been nice if the starter had been held back.
I had "poached egg in yoghurt" to start - unusual but delish!! Served with fried sage leaves at pine nuts.
Helen had cuttlefish which she said was very like squid but very tasty.
I has the lamb as a main, served with black beans in anchovy sauce. The lamb was amazing and whilst the beans were good i didn't really get the anchovy taste. My desert was a yoghurt cake with pistachio and pomegranate. It isn't really a cake at all - more like a plate of yogurt with a cake mixed in sprinked with nuts etc. That description doesn't do it justice because it was a great desert. I had it with the recommended fino and i would tell everyone to have the same. It really compliments the dessert.
Service was great - attentive but not in yur face and food was brought promptly. Service of 12.5% is included
We left at 9 and by then the restaurant was virtually full. Its got a great informal atmosphere. Tables are quite close and normally that bothers me but it didnt here. I think that was becasue the vibe is so good.
A summary would be "Good food - great night". Its definitey worth a visit and there are a couple of good pubs nearby too!!
