  2. Retour Restaurant

    * * * *

    It was a stormy night as I looked hopefully for a car park close to the Retour restaurant. My luck was in as out of the shadows loomed a space right outside. We dashed in, were promply met and seated in a great spot - cunningly I'd pre-booked with the words 'Special night - wifes birthday'. The waiter returned with menu's and wine list. After careful consideration I had a beer - I like beer. The atmosphere was electric (maybe something to do with the stormy night) and the full restaurant gave an indication of it's popularity. The food arrived and as expected was top quality and served by the attentive waitress. This is a restaurant I have been trying to get into for a while and I wasn't disappointed. Make sure you book ahead.
