Why has it taken me so long to get to this incredible restaurant! It’s officially my new favourite. The food was 10+ such incredible flavors. I must go back to try all the tapas. The halloumi & watermelon with pecan nuts, gnocchi with various mushrooms,...More

Great way to welcome new year. We enjoyed New Year’s Eve at Boucher with never ending Tapas table. Excellent fine dining with great wines. Expensive but worth it.
