Visited on a Friday night after a recommendation from a friend, and will definitely be back. The sea bass and lamb mains are delicious, with large portions. Good wine list, and nice to have the owner/chef pop down and check on everyone during the evening.

Welcome Classic-Contemporary Mediterranean and European Cuisine. Prepared with Passion - Served with Pride. lavanta_60At Lavanta we create fresh, authentic Mediterranean and European cuisine learned over a lifetime in family kitchens and restaurants from the south of Turkey to the north of England. From amazing mezes, flame-seared mixed grills and succulent steaks to seafood platters, gourmet burgers and woodsmoked pizzas, our dishes are prepared with the finest ingredients, locally sourced wherever possible, but always with passion and a good squeeze of imagination. Since opening in October we have been overwhelmed by all the kind messages and compliments you have posted about our food, as well as our stylish new interiors and warm, welcoming atmosphere and we promise to keep that passion and the high standards that have earned your praise. We look forward to many more wonderful Lavanta occasions with you, and if you have not already, please, come and say hello, and do tell us about your Lavanta experience and, hopefully, also your friends and families. See you soon, Orhan Girgin Chef Proprietor, Lavanta Restaurant
