We visited the Cookbook cafe for Sunday brunch yesterday, and cannot praise it too highly. We discovered it last Christmas, when we attended a work Christmas outing lunch there, and knew we just had to return, accompanied by our dearest old friends, to celebrate my husbands birthday; we were not disappointed. From the booking process onwards, the service was outstanding. The restaurant hostess, Maria Fernanda Galve, welcomed us warmly and showed us to a quiet, comfortable table, and Marine, our charming waitress, introduced herself and explained how the brunch buffet worked. We were offered prosecco or peach, raspberry or pear belinies, and these were topped up for the rest of the meal. The variety and quality of the food catered for every taste, roasts and all the trimmings, delectable seafood , imaginative salads on the buffet table, and a range of pretty and tasty desserts. Tea and coffee were also included, and we were made to feel welcome to stay and enjoy these for as long as we wished. Maria Fernada had also remembered that I had mentioned a birthday when booking, and a cake was produced, making us feel extra special. Marine noted that we were not eating it, as we'd already had such an excellent meal, and without prompting , popped it in to a box for us to enjoy at home. Whilst the food is fantastic, it is the service which makes the Cookbook cafe really stand out; the atmosphere is brilliant, as all the diners are clearly having such a good time. So , many thanks to Maria , Marine and all the team at the Cookbook cafe and we can't wait to return!
