We were supposed to go to the 'Morito' restaurant next door to this place, but it was fully booked, so ended up here. I was glad we did, the food was fresh, delicious and full of exciting flavours.
We had the 'Globe artichoke with fava bean purée, chopped egg, dill and pine nuts', which was my personal favourite out of the two starters. The winning ingredient had to be the pine nuts, something which I've rarely experienced in restaurant food. The second starter was 'Prawn and Seville orange rice' was also good, it had a very sweet interesting flavour when drenched with the accompanying orange slice.
'Wood roasted sea bass with braised spinach, moghrabieh and pistachio sauce' - This dish was light, well cooked and the pistachios added an nice contrasting savoury taste.
'Wood roasted black pepper chicken with pumpkin borani and sprouting broccoli' - Out of the entire evening, this was my favourite dish. The pumpkin borani tasted like an indian lentil dish, but not as heavy. Combined with the broccoli and chicken, it was simply heavenly.
'Yoghurt cake with pistachios and pomegranate' - I really didn't like this, it was a mush or cream and eggs with little "cake" inside of it. Having said this, the flavours were refreshing, but the lime / tangy taste was a little overpowering.
'Chocolate and apricot tart' - This is the dessert the go for if you don't want something too sweet. A perfect end to an amazing meal. The smooth texture of the chocolate combined with the subtle crunch of the thin biscuit base was amazing. If anything, a little more biscuit would have made it into perfection!
In conclusion, a must visit restaurant if you're in the area and probably even worth a special visit considering there aren't many places serving up such exciting flavoursome cuisine.
