We had the tasting menu. It was very very good. Use of local ingredients was the inspiration for the menu and it did not disappoint. The lamb was superb, the pollock excellent, the egg yoke and beetroot dish was a real surprise and the dessert...More

We were left with much food for thought after our visit to Idas this week. The inclusion of a vegetarian tasting menu greatly whetted the appetites, and this can't be applauded loudly enough. It was very imaginative, and included much locally foraged herbs,greens and sea...More
