From Uyen’s native Vietnamese to Simon’s Spanish Tapas, all home cooked and prepared with a twist of their own on offering to anyone who loves to have an evening spent with good company and delightful food.
Guests are welcomed with cocktails as they enter their setting and seated among a collection of vintage and modern crockery and furniture. As well as being welcomed to hang out in the kitchen, guests explore old celluloid cameras, darkroom equipment and the 16mm film edit machine, graffiti the bathroom mirror or sit on the garden sofas exploring its toys, potted plants and making friends with all the other guests.
A unique and intimate dining experience is happening at Fernandez & Leluu – its like being at someone’s house party. You bring your own wine and you eat what is given to you – but you eat well – like in a good restaurant.
