relaxed, cool + quaint...

i've driven by i don't know how many times but this week i finally entered the quaint coastal restaurant called samuels. we were greeted with young, relaxed, yet professional staff in a simple, elegant dining room. the food, the wine, the atmosphere, the company and the service was everything you could ask for when you are looking for a little something special without mortgaging your house. *i'd suggest to book as its pretty popular...

before dining you must meet your friends for a drink. neighbouring samuels is a great bar, appropriately named "the bar next door to samuels". the bar has a relaxed vibe with a super cool simple fitout. the menu's are written on the pristine white walls and quirky little quotes posted on the rafters [how can i not love that]. i have a feeling many of sunday afternoons might be spent here in summer...
