Azzurro, 255 Eltham High Street, Eltham, England

I do enjoy Italian food! So when my daughter and son-in-law booked dinner for us at Azzurro in Eltham, I was looking forward to the meal as well as the company. The restaurant is quite small and very busy but everything is spotlessly clean and the service is attentive, but not intrusive.azzurro out

Azzurro in Eltham is a family run restaurant and the food is freshly cooked to order, so it is not fast food. But it is delicious food. My husbad and son-in law shared a garlic bread pizza for starters while my daughter and I nibbled on some marinated olives. azzurro-italia

For our main courses my son-in- law and I chose pizza while my daughter had pasta and my husband tucked into an Italian lamb dish. Only my husband had room for a pudding and enjoyed the tiramasu and we all had teas and coffees to round off the meal.

The restaurant is not austentatious, but it is good value. I highly recommend Azzurro, if you are in the area.

Star of India 267 Eltham High St, Eltham, London

There are no local Indian Restaurants in our village, so, on a recent visit to London my husband and I treated ourselves to a meal at the Star of India, 267 Eltham High St, Eltham, London. What a lovely meal we had. star of india inside

We went for dinner fairly early after visiting relatives. The restaurant was cool and the service was relaxed and unobtrusive. The crisp, white linen table cloths made the place look clean and fresh. We ordered drinks and then our meals.

My husband started with chicken pakora while I had a poppadum with pickles. Both of us enjoyed these very much.star of india outside

For our main courses my husband chose lamb passander and I ordered saag paneer. We requested basmati rice as well as side orders of daal and aloo gobi. It was all absolutely delicious. We thoroughly enjoyed the meal and our evening at the Star of India. If you enjoy Indian food, this restaurant is well worth a visit.

Delicio’s Restaurant, 116 Eltham High Street, Eltham, Kent, England

ImageMy husband and I stopped off here for coffee one morning to Delicio’s in Eltham High Street, and enjoyed the friendly service so much we returned the same evening for an evening meal with our daughter and her fiance.  The waitress remembered us and made us welcome.  It made us feel like really valued customers.

The restaurant was warm and very clean. The menu contained a wide choice of dishes. Our order was taken promptly. Our first courses included fish cakes, deep fried brie and also hummus. They were all very tasty. The main courses we chose were also varied. These included lamb kebab, pizza and falafel burger. We all had soft drinks.

We enjoyed a good meal with good company. There was only one fault with the service: my husband was offered a choice of fries or rice with his meal. He ordered fries, but the meal came with rice. When the mistake was pointed out to the waitress, she did not take the meal away and have the error corrected, she ordered an extra portion of fries from the kitchen.

When our bill came, it included an extra side order of fries. I did feel this should have been absorbed by the restaurant, rather than the error passed on to the customer. This action did take the shine off my experience here.

Gusella’s Ristorante, 90 Eltham High Street, Eltham, Kent, England

This is a small family run restaurant.  It is warm, the staff welcoming and the menu wide and varied.  When my husband and I recently visited London, England, our elder daughter suggested we go to Gusella’s on Eltham High Street, for a family meal.  There were six of us, so she booked a table in advance.  This proved to be a very wise precaution.  We were there on a Friday evening and the restaurant was busy.  Nevertheless, the service was friendly and unhurried.

The menu includes a wide variety of Mediterranean dishes.  There are also main course specials, but none of these was vegetarian.  Indeed,  there is not a wide choice for vegetarians, the options that are available are very tasty.  Access for disabled people is very good.  The restaurant is bright and clean.

Each of us had a starter, just salads or brushetta.  We all enjoyed them.  Our main courses were more varied.  Our choices included Cypriot slow cooked lamb, a seafood platter, pasta dishes and chicken.  The men all drank beer, the ladies had gin and tonic or soft drinks.  Some of finished our meal with tea and coffee.

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal, the company and the surroundings.  This is a restaurant that we will certainly make a point of visiting again.  I highly recommend it.
