    The story of Les Foodies starts at the prestigious cooking school, Le Cordon Bleu, where Alex Kogan, the owner, and Davide Galloni, the chef, met. Together, they opened their restaurant in March 2017 with a vision to create a neo-bistro where cultures meld on your plate. Davide’s Italian-Thai background appears in every dish as he fuses the freshness of the Mediterranean with the flavours of Asia.

    Once we had been graciously greeted and seated, Chef Davide came to our table. We discussed his food philosophy and mentioned that my friend is a vegetarian. We agreed to trust his judgement to prepare what would work for both of us – an excellent decision on our part!Les Foodies

    Our first course was a delicate cheese on a crispy flatbread plus a unique Mozzarella di Bufala camembert. This was followed by a cauli- flower velouté with finely diced beets and a delicate Roquefort mousse.

    Next came an artichoke gnocchi, featuring three versions of artichoke accented with rounds of Pecorino cheese. Finally, my friend enjoyed a large ravioli with black truffles and egg – the egg was inside the pasta so the yolk oozed out when she cut into it. I had octopus and salad with a sesame-based vinaigrette. Several aromatic sauces on the side complimented the octopus perfectly. Although we didn’t really have room for dessert, we tried their unique raspberry tart. The extra-firm crust allowed the turmeric-based flan to be ‘croquant’. Neither of us are big dessert eaters but this was a hit! The combination of flavours and textures was perfect.

    The dinner menu features starters from €12-€18 and mains from €19-€26. They offer a lunch special at €14 for a main or €21 for two courses plus have weekend brunches. Their seasonal menu changes monthly.With a warm and welcoming ambience, the restaurant itself is a mix of stone and opaque glass walls, with one stylishly wall-papered, and tiled flooring. The combination makes you feel luxurious and at ease, especially in the velour seats. The tables are a glistening black with elegant glasses. This elegance extends to the crockery as each course is served in a unique dish, creating a stunning presentation. We were truly delighted on many levels and our only regret is that we took a year to discover Les Foodies!
