The latest review for the Temple Bar says that it's closed and the owners have gone to the Gambia, is this true does anyone know?
Gambia? I didn't know that, although I did know it had closed.
But it's already re-opened under another name (can't remember it for the moment) and it's being run by Italians. They specialise in fish and vegetarian meals, in fact I suspect there isn't any meat on the premises. I can't give you any idea of what it's like because we won't be trying it.
Thanks, another one of our regular eateries bites the dust.
Any recommendations for good restaurants gratefully accepted. Our regular places are: Fifth Avenue, Rosie O'Grady's, Infusion, Trattoria Nonna Pasqualina, La Luna. We like to try somewhere new each year, this year thinking of trying Alis Tavern and Rompeolas - comments????Edited: 01 September 2013, 17:49
A couple that have opened in the last year or so, and I can personally recommend, are An Caisteal (Scottish) and Boa Vida (Argentinian). They both have good reviews here.
Thanks Sheila, is Boa Vida near Avenida?
Definitely try An Caisteal - lovely people and lovely food. We found it by accident in March and enjoyed breakfast there every morning.
Hi, An Caistel had lovely food & well done but the only downside was we did wait quite a while.That said we would go back. Boa Vida we seem to believe is Brazilian cuisine & having had Brazilian food before (Dom Rep) it really is worth having & plenty of different meats served over & over again. We will be going there on my b'day in dec to try it. It is also located really near to Avenida. Hope this helps!
Thanks for the info. We are staying in the Bristol Playa area so will try Boa Vida, unsure where An Caesteal is.
