“Great tapas”
Review of Franziska Seatoun

We stopped in to Franziska for a light lunch after a walk. they serve a great selection of tapas. The liver pate and hummus were particularly good. Don't know what the more substantial dishes - pizzas and main course items - are like, but for a good selection of tapas, this place is ideal.

Really nice experience. The staff are an interesting group of people, the food is an experience with several quite unusual items and while they have the usual mainstream drinks, they have several different coffees on offer that are not widespread. All the staff connect with their customers in a family sort of way and take trouble to explain and guide your choices if you are unfamiliar with the menu items on offer and are universally cheerful and interested in what they offer to customers. The courtyard at the back on a sunny day is lovely, with a real likelihood of a Tui singing in the tree that leans over one corner. very relaxing and casual with great food. Several staff are from Argentina and that seems to be the theme of the restaurant with the unusual items added from there (I think!)

We didn't know this place existed, we haven't been to Seatoun for years. We were walking the Eastern Walkway and wandered down into Seatoun in search of food or at least coffee. We saw the little table outside on the footpath, a welcome sign for a weary walker. We ended up having prosciutto, hummus, the pizza of the day ( absolutely delicious), Greek salad, flan and wine by the glass from Portugal and Patagonia. The staff were fantastic, the place is cosy, it was busy but not noisy. It looked like a few locals were in, lucky things. Everyone should have a local like this.

2nd time here in as many weeks. Delicious food and very nice wine list. This could easily become our new regular Friday night out.
