The Invaluables

Press & Awards

An amuse bouche of duck liver pate with Calvados and apple syrup did indeed amuse and stir the taste buds. The three small plates were wonderful; I defy anyone to make a better crispier, crabbier lasagne, while the lovely langoustines were coated in rice flakes (Pawa) and deep fried, so they end up really crunchy outside, but still soft prawn within. They were brilliant with a red pepper dip. The rabbit and Iberico pork meatballs were very identifiably rabbit and again the flavours were great. 

Starters proper brought us a plate of snails, which were very garlicky and very light, and a plate of the excellent Jamon with aged pecorino. This dish isn’t about great cooking; it is about finding excellent producers and respecting their product by leaving it alone, and that is what we got.

Gerard Carthy , Taste of Ireland. March 2014.



It happens a few times a year. I get excited about about a restaurant because it has somehow managed to tick all of my boxes. I've been trying to pin down exactly what makes this happen, but the answer seems elusive. 

Good food is an obvious ingredient, as is good service and pleasing surroundings, but there's more to it than that. I think the final ingredient that transforms ordinary to exceptional is passion and enthusiasm. That's not something you can quantify, it doesn't get marks out of ten, but it's something you sense. 

When that sense of passion pervades every aspect of a restaurant, then you have one of those rare cases. The serving staff seem to actually care if you're enjoying your meal, the sommeliers really know wines and specifically their wine list, and the menu reflects the fact that the chefs are trying hard to be original and inventive.
