La Caleta Restaurant

A great FISH restaurant. Facing the sea at the Arenal beach, take the coastal road to the right not quite all the way to the end (Cala Blanca) - be sure to keep the sea on your left at all times - and you will find the restaurant on the left side, over a white wall and situate right on the rocks by the water. Does one need to say more of such a beautiful location ? Well ..... excellent fish - good service - not cheap BUT you must book (at weekend at least 24 hours in advance). Plenty of shade and NO PIPED MUSIC - just listen to the sea !!

Ristorante Ribot: a quiet and good restaurant in Venice:

Decent restaurants are notoriously hard to find in Venice; quiet restaurants are even rarer, as most places seem filled with piped music. This makes the Ristorante Ribot even more of a find for it is a seriously good restaurant - though it's not cheap, even by Venetian prices. Located in the Santa Croce district, on a quiet canal near the train and bus station, it has a pleasant courtyard garden. Here Italians come to eat proper Italian meals. Dishes such as 'sardines “in saor ” and creamed cod with polenta' or black hand-made tagliatelle with scampi and julienne of zucchini are typical.

Dev's Kerala Restauran

Simple and very cheap South Indian restaurant. Very popular with a good athmosphere. I have been three times so far and have only had the vegetarian options. While not as good as London's Drummond Street eateries and a bit less specialised; they advertise tandoori dishes as well as vegetarian ones, it is a very useful piped music-free oasis in a popular eating area of Bristol. It is also the cheapest way I have found to have an evening meal in Bristol.

Zedel's Brasserie

Buried deep under Piccadilly Circus, this was once the Atlantic Bar (among other incarnations). Now it is a remarkably successful attempt to recreate a French brasserie with a resplendent 1920s decor - huge gilded marbles pillars, mirrors and other aspects of elegant splendour.
The food is unapologetically French and there are good value fixed price menus. The wine list is interestingly French too and the service friendly and efficient.

Osteria la Candina, half-hidden gem in Ostuni, Puglia

Half-hidden in an alleybehind the Piazza della Indipendenza in the hill-town of Ostuni in Puglia, the Osteria La Candina claims to offer 'cucina tipica' (typical food). It is too modest. Its food is excellent though simple, like the somewhat subterranean restaurant itself. The staff are friendly and WILLING TO TURN OFF THE MUSIC WHEN ASKED – it's fairly soft anyway. (The magic phrase is 'può abbassare la musica, per favore?'). La Candina specialises in fish and seafood. Both are very good. So is the house wine.

Inn at Whitewell

This is a pub and restaurant with rooms.
I haven't stayed overnight.
The food and ale is worth going out of your way for, as is the scenery (The Hodder Valley) surrounding the pub.

Bridge Inn

A delightful pub at the end of a lane. Good ale (Wye Valley's Butty Bach is the regular one) and local ciders. And the food is excellent. Wood burning stoves.
The pub is beside The Escley Brook. There are tables in the garden, overlooking the brook.
There is also a campsite, if you don't want to have to make your way home after the Butty Bach!
