THE FOOD You would not ex­pect such ex­quis­ite fare, all beau­ti­fully plated, from this easy-go­ing restau­rant. I started with Leek and Po­tato, a creamy, richly flavoured leek stew that ac­com­pa­nied a tofu-like block of po­tato con­fit and thyme crou­tons. My main course was a seared sea bass coated with a sweet and savoury gar­lic soil – a sur­pris­ing crum­ble of choco­late bits with minced roasted gar­lic and shal­lots. The mango cake, adorned with sprouts, blue­ber­ries and diced man­goes, tasted as good as it looked. If you are hun­gry for fine-din­ing fare that you don’t need to dress up for, and doesn’t burn a hole in your pocket, you’ll find it here.
