With a terraced garden plus a children’s play area, this stylish brasserie has all the attributes needed to make a family-friendly venue all year round. Inside, there’s a contemporary space in greys and silvers with a mixture of artwork in the softly-lit dining room. The menu embraces local ingredients whilst looking to the Mediterranean for additional inspiration. This is evident in clams, nduja, samphire, lemon and tomato focaccia, perhaps followed by chorizo and chicken risotto, basil pesto and lemon balm. At the end, white chocolate fondant comes with cranberry caviar, pistachio and white chocolate ‘Aero’, cherry and cranberry sorbet.
