Nine years on, this all-day dining venue remains a popular place for inspired Mediterranean fare. Granted, there are dishes that could be a little more polished, but there are clear standouts, too, such as the delightful Mediterranean mezze platter and the pan-seared seabass served with green peas, kumquat, black garlic and cashew sauce. The former is a selection of slow-cooked octopus leg, homemade ham croquettes and tabbouleh salad, that is ideal for two to three diners to share; the latter has a firm texture complemented by piquant and creamy sauces. For dessert, stick to classics, such as churros served with chocolate sauce, whipped cream and lemon curd; simple yet satisfying. Service is warm and courteous.
As some areas of the restaurant are warmer than others, it’s worth reserving the more comfortable window seats in advance—where there’s also a nice view.
