I had cod cheeks, wrapped in pancetta (£14), pan fried, on top of a jammy,   red-pepper mulch, some flaked almonds, grilled pepper and just a hint of   heat from a guindilla chilli. Sweetness and heat were grounded by the rich,   slick cod cheeks. (…) This is a stunning addition, not just to the posh-curry fraternity, but to the   entire restaurant landscape…

A courgette flower stuffed with crabmeat, then battered, fried and served with a samphire garnish, roasted tomatoes and a squeeze of lemon is evocative of the seaside. Seafood is a strong point, with two meaty monkfish tails pan-fried then served on a bed of borlotti beans. Italian influence is evident in the combination of fennel, olives and pungent shavings of bottarga, the dried fish roe giving each forkful surprising depth to the monkfish…

A spring broth, grilled asparagus with imam bayildi, ox tongue with duck egg and  pickled herrings with grapes and wild fennel made for a fine lunch – with the  lure of outside tables providing a further inducement to return one sunny day…

Now here’s a ridiculous idea for a restaurant: sell good food at reasonable prices, employ engaging staff who look happy to be there, don’t mark up wine greedily, take reservations. (…) A muscular tentacle of octopus has the kind of tenderness I can never achieve at home, with an almost-scorched – in a good way…

Like some of the other dishes on the menu, the clams, chorizo and prawns in Fino is available in both a small and a large size. The large portion doesn’t embiggen the small, bitty clams. The chorizo was also a little disappointing – at best, it was mildly fatty. The prawns were fresh though, while the thin Fino-based sauce was lip-smackingly good with a lightly spicy, slightly sour and acidic taste to it. It almost makes up for the limp clams and chorizo…
