We had our first Christmas night out last night with Martin and Mary in La Lavanda, an Italian Restaurant in Douglas Village East, Cork. It is an easily accessible restaurant with ample public parking nearby. There are also a number of designated disabled parking spaces in the vicinity.
The food was faultless and all the plates were cleared. Martin started with Crostini & Pate and followed on with Roast Chicken with roasted veg and sautéed potatoes; Mary started with Antipasti and followed on with a Fish Pie and salad; Jean started with Bruschetta and followed on with Pollo a la Creme finished with a glorious helping of Tiramasu; I had Italian Spicy chicken wings to start with followed on with a seafood spaghetti and rounded off with a Meringue and Fresh Fruit Salad. Martin and Jean finished with Cappuccinos. We had 2 lovely bottles of wine. We felt it was good value at €155.
There is ample circulation space in the restaurant and there is a wheelchair accessible toilet on the premises which is a fine size but the access corridor is used for storing chairs which makes navigation a bit difficult but it really didn’t detract from a lovely evening. Well worth a visit.
