My friend and I decided to come here after we realised they done a cheese board. After traveling south east Asia for the past three months, it was an absolute treat coming here. Without a doubt some of the best food I have had in that period of time. Each of the tapas we had were on point: taste, presentation,... More

Impeccable food & service as always. Red Snapper never disappoints! This establishment has been around for a long time & has a well deserved reputation as being one of the best, if not the best restaurant around.

Amazing food! They really take an effort in here to the presentation of dishes. You eat food first with your eyes and, when our orders arrived at the table, they were stunning to look at and delicious and tasty to eat. Food is plenty with fresh ingredients at a good price. Staff is helpful, friendly and courteous. Atmosphere is lovely... More

What a find this was! Our host Kim at Thai House Beach Resort recommended this place and it was amazing! The menu is incredible and offers a wonderful array of perfectly executed fusion dishes. The food is that of a restaurant that would be way beyond our budget in London and so we took full advantage of their culinary delights... More

Looks like a canteen but the food is delicate and glorious. Carpaccio, spinach cakes, crab croquettes, roast salmon with pomelo were all superb small plates.The large green salad was made of the freshest, perfect greens with flowering chives, green sprouting shoots and a wondrous dressing. Great servers.

We ordered 6 tapas dishes which was more than enough and each one was superb after travelling throughout Asia for 3 weeks it was soooo good to taste some new flavours and cooking styles. The tortilla and... More

Just returned from an unplanned meal here this evening and I feel compelled to say how great it was. I had a pork loin with chorizo dish and my friend had a cauliflower fallafal dish that was far better than it sounds! Both meals were exquisite and very reasonably priced for the quality. Everything else that came out of the... More
