Amazing Experience

My Partner and I recently dined here on the 30th of September and I have to say we thoroughly enjoyed our experience. The food was amazing, the selection of cocktails was impressive and tasted great. I also have to commend the staff for their attentiveness we were never left waiting for anything.

Just fantastic!!!!

An amazing experience, those cocktails are simply epic!!! I had the crab salad, which was so light and delicious and very generous portion size. Hubby had Prawns pil pil, and a steak, also fab. I had the monkfish scampi for main, so yummy and the batter was soooo light and crispy. Chilled chocolate fondant was a dream. Of course more cocktails were had, The Aviation is a revelation to me. It is just such a treat to eat such gorgeous food in such a lovely buzzing atmosphere, and best of all we felt so safe, everything is done by the book and once we were in the magic happened. Can't say enough about this place, wonderful, and did I mention those cocktails?!?!!!!

Friendly, comfortable, enjoyable atmosphere and good food.

The taste of our starters of Gambas al pil pil took us straight back to a small eaterie we used in Lanzarote some yers ago. Nice plump prawns and delicious sauce. The wife had sirloin steak well done and I had the fillet steak medium. Both arrived cooked as asked for and were very good. Too full for a desert we settled for liqueur coffees. The staff were friendly and happy to have a bit of banter in between serving and made for a very relaxed and enjoyable evening. At €130 (including a bottle of wine) we thought it good value and will definitely be returning. PS booked using online booking system and no problems.

Great food, great hospitality

Lovely meal. Had the crab salad and baby carrot and celeriac risotto, both of which were delicious. Very accommodating and slipped us in without a reservation. Very appreciative of the manager who unfortunately had to deal with difficult patrons trying to enter without covid vaccination certs.
