Café Restaurant Leto

I have noticed the Café Restaurant Leto already for a while. Probably because it lies on my way home when I feel like walking. So on a recent evening I lured the book club to this restaurant with the promise of a separate room. Unfortunately the room had been double booked and we got the short end. The restaurant though more than made up for it.

Only one person ordered a starter which was a vegetable soup. The soup tasted rich in vegetables without the added calories of cream. It also had a hint of spice in the back.

Three of us went for the sweet potato avocado salad. I love this combination especially when pomegranate seeds are involved as well. The portion was more than filling, the sweet potatoes disappointed me though. I would have loved them to be warm or at least a bit crunchy. Like this they tasted bland and boring.

The spaghetti with shrimps fared a lot better. They tasted sooo good that my friend wanted to order another portion right away. Have never heard of anything like this.

In the end she chose mussels in white wine sauce which were also lovely.

Unfortunately someone else finished the grilled calamari (I quite like it when food gets eaten), so the choice fell on octopus. It was a winner nonetheless.

The vegetarian eggplant ragout with feta cheese was tasty and much appreciated. Overall except for the bland sweet potatoes there was no one complaining.

The service people were definitely trying their utmost to make us happy and they succeeded. We had a very pleasant event. Looking at the pictures now though I really think they have to work on their lighting. All in all Café Restaurant Leto was a pleasant surprise. Yours, Pollybert
