Gourmet Mediterranean dining in a characterful, traditional house.

I use any excuse to dine here - special occasion, friends visiting, a 'y' in the day...it's a real favourite. I've never had anything less than an excellent meal here and I'm working my way through the entire menu. And as if the food wasn't a good enough excuse for eating here, the building's fabulous too.

Food and drink

It's mediterranean with a contemporary twist and exactly what it says in the name of the restaurant - a thousand flavours. Well, maybe not a thousand but, lots.

Recommended dishes

Sample the Tower of Babel beef and pork medallions; shoulder of lamb in garlic and rosemary sauce, roast duck or skewers of duck breast and don't leave without trying the chocolate profiteroles; they're the best in my known universe.

Ambience

There are a mix of visitors and locals, and it's always busy at weekends. As it's only open in the evenings it tends to be adults rather than families. The atmosphere is informal, particularly on the street tables.

Service

It's the perfect mix of friendly, professional and attentive but unobtrusive.

Location

It's on a narrow cobbled street filled with candlelit tables from restaurants in the Ranilla district which is known as the restaurant quarter.

Price advice

Starters average at 8 euros; soups average 4 euros; main courses average 12.60 euros and sweets average at 4.60 euros. An extensive wine menu starts from around 9 euros.

Tables to book

On warm summer nights for casual dining, ask for a pavement table to get the ambience of the Ranilla District. On cooler winter nights book a table in the upper level of the old mansion beneath the wooden rafters.
