Café Andaluz

Spanish city centre restaurant from the Di Maggio’s group, with lots of character, atmosphere and plenty of creative dishes

Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2017 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

Lighter and brighter than the West End branch, this ever-popular restaurant couldn’t wish for a better location. Being within easy walking distance of a subway stop, a major train station and the city’s main shopping street means it’s usually busy with tourists and flagging shoppers. The menu is a safe and steady cruise around familiar dishes with occasional Moroccan touches. The pork cheeks are juicy and ready to fall apart and the spicy beef strips match nicely to the peppery rocket they arrive on. Fuel for shopping or visits to art galleries comes in the form of a hearty potato gratin while the most interesting combination on the menu is the Spanish goat’s cheese served with orange and chilli marmalade. Custom flows in mini-waves from workers on lunch breaks through afternoon window-shoppers and on into the evening; even when packed though, an industrious serving team keep the dishes flowing with efficiency and a smile.
