Harden's survey result
“You can choose between full meal or tapas” at this white-walled (slightly “stark”) yearling run by Kiwi Stephen Gilchrist and Devon-born Kathryn Curtis, which is split between a NZ-inspired restaurant and ‘Argentinian Tapas Bar’ (Chandos Social @ Otira). The smaller plates are “highly original and so delicious” and the well-rated more adventurous fare features “interesting combinations of sometimes-foraged food, from a limited but frequently changing menu”. “Friendly and efficient” service completes the picture.
“This warm and charming new venture, from a well-travelled Antipodean chef, is a fantastic addition to Redland’s Chandos Road, which already boasts a few amazing venues”. Stephen Gilchrist (with help from his British partner Kathryn Curtis) serves some “inspired food combinations and all are delicious and perfectly cooked”. “You can eat in the restaurant or the next-door tapas bar. Both offer original ideas which are superbly executed and presented. Five visits, and everything was simply exceptional!”
