I always head to Simply Tapas and Vinho when I'm in the area. They do a great lunch menu with a really good selection on it. The chef's amuse-bouche is delicious too (pate). Great service by Fred and his team!

Description
Simply Tapas and Vinho has taken the locals by storm and has quickly established itself to be the place to be and the place to be seen in. After considerable research in Spain, chef has put his own slant on many well known and traditional favourites as well as other more adventurous and interesting fare. If you are with a large party the Chef's Table provides the perfect setting. Whilst there check out the wide selection of gourmet delicacies on sale as well as a great selection of fine wines at reasonable prices.
