Having read the reviews on TA went to have a look but was not impressed by the small rather dreary facade. Went back when the restaurant was open and asked to have a look around and was really amazed at how large it was and how pleasant and nicely decorated. There is a small terrace at the back with just a few tables. A group of 5 of us went for dinner on a Sunday evening and found the place full and buzzing. We all had a set menu and found plenty of choice and it was excellent value and included half a bottle of wine each. A really good find. My sister and husband (who is Spanish) live locally and will definitely return.

I used this restaurant when it first opened a number of years ago; it was then called The Buddha, not long after that its standards went down hill and its charges up.
Now under new owners I decided following a recommendation to give it a try. I can now say that should any one wish to give this restaurant a try they should not be disappointed.
3 Menus of the day plus one daily special menu which is changed daily.
I was very impressed and can say that I will be back for more.

The title says it all. Third visit in the last three months and the quality of service and food was top notch each time. Coupled with an attractive setting this is one of the best in the area. Thank you Classica Gourmet.
