Tucked away in an obscure little arcade in Redcliffe, What's in the Pot? is reminiscent of a restaurant in a small Mediterranean village. A tiled terrace with overhanging roof and potted plants gives it an instant holiday feel. The unusual location is lovely and quiet, away from the hustle and bustle of the main road.
Inside, the colours of the décor are warm and bright and accentuate the homely atmosphere. This could be a simple but cosy family dining room where the family has just dropped in to see 'what's in the pot' tonight. Depending on what the cook fancies cooking on the day, as well as the availability of fresh produce at the time of year, you can be assured of a rustic Italian meal every time. We were there for lunch and were welcomed by friendly staff members who treated us like long-lost relatives who had been invited for a meal.
Only very slow and careful frying can bring out the beautiful caramelised onion flavour we experienced. The side salad was a little heavy on spinach but fresh and tasty and drizzled with a subtle dressing.
