There is something so beautiful about a delicious hot meal on a crisp winter's day, and one of our favourite winter dining spots is Safran. Their Seafood Risotto or Paella will always hit the spot with its bright flavours, and the spicy chicken wings with Tzatziki will have you coming back time and time again. If you are settling in, grab a decadent espresso martini and take your time.

Located on Davis Crescent, this lively Italian restaurant will have your tummy grumbling from the moment you step in the door with the aroma of fresh creamy pasta and crispy wood fired pizza. The welcoming atmosphere will have you day dreaming of a trip to Italy in no time.

White & Wong's

One of our favourite spots to head with a few friends, order a selection of dishes and taste the fusion flavours on offer. We love the soft duck pancakes, delicious mushroom dumplings, and zingy crispy fried chicken in its delicious sticky, spicy sauce - yum!

Bodrum Market

If a trip to the Med isn't on the cards right now, you can still indulge in their delicious cuisine and imagine yourself there in spirit thanks to Bodrum Market. Think bowls of creamy hummus, flavour packed grilled cuts of meat, and fluffy, crisp pide. Taste your way through their extensive menu, or grab a Mezze platter to share, a large glass of wine and enjoy a long, leisurely lunch.
