14 South End Road, Croydon, CR0 1DL



ApaturaThe team at Apatura restaurant have been hailed as local heroes for bringing high end modern European cuisine to Croydon; many a south Londoner rates it as the best restaurant in the area. Located on busy South End, the d?cor at Apatura is slick and modern. Low lighting and backlighting behind the well-stocked bar lend a theatrical air, and slate floors and dark wooden furniture add to the sophisticated ambience. The food, too, is on trend, striking the right balance between simple and interesting; typical dishes include slow cooked pork belly with spring onion mash, roasted pear and sherry jus. The lunch menu includes a range of lighter options like the artichoke, red onion and mozzarella tart, or the Aberdeen Angus beef burger. As well as the appealing menu and high quality, well presented food, diners rate the friendly and professional service and stylish surroundings. Desserts, too, get a special mention but if you're too full, a drink at the trendy bar is a good alternative.
