About Galvin Brasserie de Luxe
Warm and welcoming on a freeezing cold Tuesday evening
A warm welcome greeted us as we arrived
The staff are always so intersted and attentive ,they remember you !
We were the first to try the new seasonal menu
As always it is an imaginative combination of flavours ,ingredience and colour
The salmon marinated in beetroot was a flavousome and very pretty starter
The new pork dish is “ melt in the mouth “ a must
Anything with ice- cream is on my list ........the chocolate delice that accompanied it was beautifully intense .
I nearly forgot to mention that the breat arrived warm ,fabulous
No wonder that this is our favourite restaurant
excellent and attentive service from friendly wait staff. food was all beautifully presented and of excellent quality. coffee was also excellent. In order for us to keep returning, perhaps the seasonal menu could have one additional choice. Highly recommend.
