Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2016 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

This review is taken from the 2012 edition.

In an original low stone building in the pretty Monikie Country Park, the recently refurbished Café Byzantium serves a light lunch menu and a fuller à la carte evening menu on weekend nights. There is plenty of outdoor seating and whether enjoying a coffee or ice cream, a panini or Greek salad and hummus, it is a nice place to sit and watch dog walkers and young families go by. The evening menu reflects more of the owner/chef’s Mediterranean heritage with a wonderful mix of Greek-inspired seafood, meat and veggie dishes including Iskenderoni (chargrilled supreme of chicken, lamb kofte and thin sliced minute steak topped with Greek yogurt and Byzantium sauce) and Melanzana (stuffed aubergine). There’s also a range of pizzas at lunchtime and in the evening.
