WORDS Tom Henshaw

A new and exciting restaurant owned and managed by Katie and her partner Danijel, not only bring excitement to Luz but absolutely great food.

We had the pleasure of being there for dinner the day after the opening and we were all blown away by the choices BUT even more so by the standard.

Situated on the street along from the church it has a great outdoor dining area alongside a very well-designed indoor dining room which is light, airy and comfortable.

This is definitely a restaurant where you really feel you need to be back soon as there are so many really good choices and just to give you a ‘flavour’ of that I have just selected two starters and two mains –my starter was Crispy duck with Asian salad, soy and mandarin sesame dressing.

Julie had salt baked & pickled celeriac, charred Smokey aubergine, sweet chilli dressing and then the two mains I suggest are Posh Lasagne, parmesan and rocket salad and slow-roasted pork belly, accompanied by Asian caponata. Both delightful and light in spite of the wordy menu information! I must not overlook the fact that it is Vegetarian and Vegan friendly as well.

Just to finish I ought not to ‘miss out’ on the desserts! Again a couple to whet your appetite. I can personally recommend the crème brule, shortbread biscuit (magnificent) and as an alternative the chocolate fondant with vanilla ice cream!!

I think I could go on and on about this splendid night out which was hard to beat and I really believe Katie and Danijel will maintain the quality and standard because that will be the test! Great staff too and Mary, Andre and Victor made the whole evening special!
