97 month anniversary - Giaconda Dining Room

Over the years, its a sort of tradition that JD and I head somewhere nice for dinner once a month to celebrate how long we have been together and this month, we decided to head to Giaconda Dining Room. We had been wanting to go and try it for a while but just haven't managed it until now - its a tad more difficult to organise going if you work a normal working week cos they are closed at the weekends so managed to bag a table for Friday night. 

Its a pretty small restaurant but not as small as I was expecting - the closeness of the tables reminded me of bistros in Paris :(

Our meal was lovely, food was yummy, service was friendly and prompt and it was excellent value for money - starters, mains, desserts and tea/coffee for 2 as well as a glass of wine for c.£60!!! Definitely somewhere to come back to :)
    Unlimited sparkling water, and olives and bread for the meal, all for a bargain cover charge if £1 per person!

Boneless pigs trotters, spuds, egg mayonaise and salad leaves - mmmmm :)

Duck confit, lyonnais potatoes and watercress salad - delish!

JD's main of ham hock hash - tasty but sadly, the egg was overcooked so no gooey yolk oozing into the hash :(

 Eton mess - definitely not a looker but oh so good!

JD's pud of banana split
