- Great food

Café Panache is a really attractive space, a real looker. Spot-lit, with lots of greenery to warm the rather raw, corrugated walls, the stylish use of wood and colourful tiles make it easy on the eye. We like the pot plants which act as a room divider and the weathered parquet. The menu has a European vibe with lots of fresh seafood dishes – ceviche, mussels and razor clams – as well as other tasty mains and small plates including a crisp frogs’ legs salad. On the liquid side of things they serve cocktail pitchers to share if you’re in a group, including a coriander and chili-laced G&T and a luscious vodka and mango affair, as well as a number of perfectly executed classics – including a top-notch Dark ’n’ Stormy and a punchy Paloma. Their range of G&Ts is impressive in and of itself and the wine list is also well worth exploring. If you’re feeling flush they serve a vast seafood platter which comes with a bottle of crisp, chilled Sancerre.
