Charlie Roadley-Battin enjoys a meal at Delia’s Restaurant & Bar
I am lucky to have lived close to the fine city of Norwich for some years now, but I rarely venture further than the city centre when I have the chance to dine out, so with ample free parking and not having to negotiate the city’s traffic, Delia’s Restaurant & Bar on Carrow Road makes a fantastic choice.
On entering the restaurant, straight away you are taken in by the warm ambiance with it’s highly stylish decor, lovely subtle lighting, easy listening background music and very classy and clean cut furniture.
After being very warmly greeted we decided to sit and have an aperitif before dining and we were soon given complimentary nibbles of Casablanca olives and homemade sweet potato crisps which were truly yummy.
After perusing the mouth-watering menu we were shown to our table by a very friendly and attentive waitress, who like all the members of staff, was immaculately turned out.
We were then offered three types of focaccia which were freshly baked and not too heavy. To start my husband elected to try the tomato, mozzarella and avocado salad with a herb dressing which he said was very well flavoured and just the right amount. I on the other hand opted for the Greek squid with lemon and olive oil and to make you feel you were in Kos or Kefalonia, a cheeky side order of a small glass of ice cold Ouzo was presented – a perfect combo!
