Having been given a taster menu for 2 voucher for Christmas , visited Belle Époque this week with my wife .
Initial impression on arrival was excellent , it was a very cold evening and the door was opened for us in to a nice warm room with a burning log fire . The staff were friendly with good humour , our coats were taken and we were shown to our table . The table had been set with the necessary range of cutlery for the taster menu to come .
Included in our offer was a glass of prosecco which was poured in to our glasses at the table and we were invited to sit back and enjoy the food .
My description of this review is a food experience which indeed it was , the menu had been well balanced with an array of ingredients . As previously mentioned in reviews the 8 courses amount to a nice sized meal in total , introducing you to ingredients that you may not normally have chosen . Each dish was beautifully presented and the timing between dishes I felt was just right . This probably rates as one of the best meals I have had and will definitely return and perhaps consider staying overnight next time .
As you will have gathered by now this carries my recommendation for you to consider trying the restaurant .
