We chose to eat at Respite because it was very near our hotel but we were very pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food and the atmosphere. We thought that eating locally was a compromise, but it certainly didn't turn out to be. Respite is only a small place. It's cosy and intimate, and the food is packed full of interesting and unusual flavours. I had the scallop starter, which was tiny but delicious. My main was fish, which was perhaps a little heavy on the fresh ginger but still very good. Portion sizes aren't huge but luckily that meant I had room for the taster desert menu, which was heavenly.
