    What a fantastic time we had at Picnic. Great vibe and All the staff are amazing, especially our waitress who was attentive, engaging and helpful. I recommend for anyone wanting delicious tapas and cocktails to try Picnic. We tried the miss match and sangria cocktails- so delicious and we shared the manchego and mushrooms, duck confit, oysters and the fois gras… all were delicious , our favourite was the fois gras - really amazing. Wish we didn’t live so far away or we’d be frequent customers here for sure .

    Great tapas selection and quality food. Cozy yet informal setting. Interesting feature cocktails and engaging and friendly service. Had pork belly, cauliflower, oysters, roasted peppers, duck confit. Also had the octopus (which we wouldn’t reorder as we prefer it grilled) - but it was still good). As a provisioner there is an Interesting selection of wines, craft beers and spirits for sale at the back - in addition to the meats, fresh homemade breads and specialty items. Would highly recommend.
