This lovely boutique bistro, Fifty Two, in Bangor, has a tempting menu based on fresh, local produce. For a romantic fine dining experience, the a la carte menu is varied, original and delicious, and the food is beautifully presented - think Master Chef! Last week I started my meal with langoustine risotto (£7), followed by perfectly cooked pigeon breast with spinach, hazelnuts, celariac puree and roast potatoes (£14.95). I finished off with coconut pudding with rum custard and ice cream. My hubby had the best steak he has eaten in years (and he is an expert in this area!) And a fabulous cheese board with port. The wine list is exclusive and very well priced. We had a wonderful Shiraz for £13. Service is excellent, friendly, knowledgeable and efficient. For a cheaper option go for the early bird set menu, meal deal for two or lunch. Lunches are currently £6.95 per main course. This restaurant is worth coming to Bangor for, and if you already live here, give it a go - you'll be back!
