6. July 2014: Restaurant The Delaunay

The “Steak Tartare” (GBP 10.95) is not really a British dish but I must admit that it was actually very tasty – the beef is of good quality, smooth in consistency and aromatic. The fresh egg yolk refined the steak tartare perfectly – smoothened it out even a bit more. The “French Fries” (GBP 4.50) […]

5. July 2014: Restaurant sketch

The start of the evening was the “‘Ajo Blanco’ which was served with melon sorbet and julienne of palmhearts” (GBP 12.00). While the combination of a quite strong garlic soup together with a rather light sorbet and melon slices was definitely not only an interesting but a good one, the palmhearts did not cause much […]

5. July 2014: Restaurant Zoilo

The Restaurant Zoilo was again somewhat like a pre-dinner – although rather unplanned. While walking by and finding out that they are a nice winebar with quite great wines at display it felt logical to walk in and enjoy a glass of wine. The “house breads selection & butter” (GBP 1.95) was already quite nice […]

The “West Country beef burger with tomato chilli relish, smoked aioli, Emmental, crispy bacon and coleslaw” (GBP 9.90) is a hefty dish. The burger is quite okay as the buns are nicely toasted, the beef is of fair quality, the bacon is actually crispy but what I liked the most was the coleslaw as it […]

5. July 2014: Restaurant Il Blandford’s

After a short night’s sleep there is nothing more helpful than a short and intense hearty breakfast – the “Spanish Eggs (two eggs oven baked on a bed of tomato sauce with piquillo peppers, cooked onions, black olives, chorizo and jamón íberico served with toasts)” (GBP 7.50) was quite a punch when it arrived. The […]

One hint already here, make sure you book in advance as else you are most likely not getting a table. The tasting […]

4. July 2014: Restaurant Cocoro

When my friend suggested to have a pre-dinner I was absolutely astonished but who am I to decline such an offer to yet try another restaurant? Well, exactly, I did not decline the offer so we went for dinner at Restaurant Cocoro and as it was pre-dinner I decided to go for “three kinds of […]

4. July 2014: Radio Rooftop Bar and Restaurant

The top floor of the Melia hotel hosts the “Radio Rooftop Bar” which is absolutely worth a visit when the weather is good. In the late afternoon when the sun is about to set it is absolutely perfect to be there and sit outside enjoying the last sunbeams. However, it is rather difficult to find […]
