16 Feb Restaurant Review: Cigala, WC1
By James W. Phillips
It was a visually stimulating winter evening where a visit to Cigala was purely our pleasure. Set in a warm and life-filled street in WC1 it boasts of quiet and affluent surroundings whilst being closely located to various nearby amenities.
Being at the forefront of food fashion, the restaurant is a bright white minimalist space of stripped floorboards with an open kitchen in the corner.
Being at their peak time of Dinner the restaurant was moderately full with waiters ensuring every table is carefully tended to. The atmosphere beaming of excellence.
A visually stimulating Paella de marisco rice with monkfish, prawns and mussels served its purposed as my main meal after having enjoyed starters of Jamón Ibérico de Cebo with succulent tomato toast. My dessert which was made without much waiting was Frutas al vino and the red wine added succulent texture to this dish to sum up my night.
For me Dinner, including wine and service for two £70
The Verdict: 4/5
An exquisite environment with great service and greatly prepared dishes.
How Much? Starters from £2, Mains from £14.70
