Cannibale Royale

Appeal to pop’s inner caveman with this meat-lovers mecca, which scores masculinity points with its gallows humour and quirky interior, hefty slabs of steak and massive knives to match. We recommend the ‘L’exceptionnel,’ 600 g of rubicund rib roast from Irish Shannon beef – or if he likes his bones, ‘Cannibale’s favourite ribs’, which are sticky and tender.

The Grand Afternoon Tea

Spoil mum with a classic afternoon tea in the serene courtyard garden of a former 15th-century convent. She’ll enjoy delicacies such as crostini with smoked eel and basil cream, soft-set eggs with caviar and crème fraîche, scones with lemon curd and clotted cream, Opéra cake and la religieuse – choux pastry berry bombs – a subtle nod perhaps to the building’s beginnings.

The Seafood Bar

Seafood-loving parents will find a port of call at this sustainable seafood specialist: from ocean-fresh oysters, local smoked mackerel and Volendam eel to flawless fish and chips and lavish platters of fruits de mer. An unwavering focus on fair and transparent fishery translates to a light, bright interior, which eschews seaside clichés in favour of repurposed wood, exposed brick and polished stone.
