We love their Aged Goat Cheese Salad {ask for Smoked Salmon or Aged Parma Ham as topping} as we do their Pesto Rubbed Carpaccio. For mains, look no further than Toscano’s thin crust pizzas, Aglio Olio style pasta, sinful risottos and lamb chops stuffed with mint, apricot and feta. Toscano also gets a thumbs up from us for its events calendar choc-a-bloc with baking and cooking classes, kid-friendly birthday menus and elaborate brunches.

Chez Mariannick

This endearing little creperie offers a set menu, and is known for their wonderful crepes {made out of wheat flour} or Galettes {crepes made out of buckwheat}. The set menu allows you to order a salad and choose either two, three or four mains {with unlimited salad, water, juice and bread}. We suggest you go for the Le Bergerie, French Goat Cheese, cream, and onion jam galette from the savoury options and choose the La Belle Helene, a sweet crepe stuffed with pear, chocolate and cream. Their thin crust, wood fired pizzas are equally popular and you can ask for a wholewheat base at an extra cost. And if you are alive after the French-style onslaught of cream, cheese and all things heavy duty, do end your meal with a Creme Caramel.
