Goliard is currently one of my favourite restaurants for both lunch and dinner

Here are 10 good reasons why:

Taste:
  • The food offering here is an inventive, flavour filled, balance of re-imagined classic Catalan and Spanish dishes combined with a hint of Japanese finesse and slightly off-piste choices such as kangaroo. Delicious.
