Providores is a wonderful and consistently excellent place to go for a drink, a light snack, or a fully meal. Have been here many many times and staff have always been warm and welcoming and chef Peter Gordon's wonderful menu is complemented by great New Zealand wines. The downstairs is small and does get very crowded and prices are higher than that other neighbourhood establishments, but the quality of food is reflective of this. Even simple dishes like grilled Chorizo and poached egg are standouts. Well worth the wait.
