A few weekends ago we headed to Aurora restaurant in Nottingham. I had never been before but had heard loads about it from a few people who are self confessed foodies so trusted it should be our next spot to visit.
I feel like I need to write a blog purely so this spot can be found. It's nestled on the edge on the Lace Market in the city and apart from the small sign above the entry way, I would have never found it. You walk in through what looks like a Greek Taverna, a beautiful candle lit cave stairway leading down to the restaurant, which despite being hidden in one of Nottingham's famous caves, or maybe just a Victorian basement is bright, modern and romantic.
As we were a pretty large group, we were asked to pre order when we booked the table, which I'm not a huge fan on honestly, you never know what you're going to fancy on the night. I played it safe with my favourite and chose a Seabass dish & then tried something new with a Pineapple Tartin for dessert.
They offer deals on 2/3 course which make it easier to treat yourself to a big feast on your night out. They had ran out of prosecco which, if you've read any of my previous food posts was a little bit of a hit for the group but we managed to get by, it may have also had something to do with a huge bridal shower also siding that night.
- Service, was attentive but maybe a little inexperied
- Atmosphere, really good
- Book in advance
- Parking available all over the Lace Market
- Go on a Friday/Saturday night for the best atmosphere
Have you been to Aurora before? Do you mind pre ordering?
Until next time,
