OK…. So it’s not a regular restaurant, but this gem has a hundred different ways to win you over!
It’s a platform, a nest for young chefs, where they can create and experiment for a short-spell, before taking flight to take residence in their own restaurants. Every chef is united by their passion for cooking and creativity with an aspiration to impress.
It’s been established as a permanent restaurant since 2013 and now runs from Thursday to Sunday offering a simple menu from the best produce around. The space is comfortable and informal, unpretentious and unconventional, serving great food that you order directly from the bar.
We were lucky enough to meet the charming chef Leandro Carreira who offered his brilliant version of grilled “Red Mullet”, accompanied by peas and apple sauce. A delicious dish, which is as innovative as it is surprising. Great creativity mixed with great ingredients, what’s not to like!
Recently they’ve opened a café space: Climpson & Sons Coffee Roastery & Coffee Bar.Take advantage of sunny days and visit this corner… it’s well worth it!
