Flamenco Spanish Restaurant
Flamenco specialises in offering a wide range of tapas and many vegetarian dishes, so deciding what to eat took a while. Should we have meat, fish or a vegetarian option? The wonderful thing about tapas is that you can have them all and Flamenco provides the best – tasty and traditional, simple yet sophisticated.
The restaurant is delightfully intimate – think flickering candles and flamenco music in the background. With 34 dishes on the menu, including a comprehensive range of vegetarian dishes alongside the list of specials, there truly is something for everyone. My friend and I opted for olives, cheese-topped garlic bread, lamb casserole, prawns with garlic and hot peppers, aubergine with mozzarella, chorizo pan fried in red wine, and chicken and spicy sausage paella. The dessert menu included popular choices like apple pie and profiteroles, but we simply couldn’t resist the exquisite figs in Pernod and cream.
Flamenco Spanish Restaurant is just a short walk from Buxton Opera House. There could be no better way to begin an evening at the theatre, or to just relax with friends, than with a visit to Flamenco. Catch the early-bird special (available Sunday to Thursday, 6pm to 7pm), which offers two people the chance to enjoy four tapas and a salad for £19.95. And there’s more: between 6pm and 7pm Sunday to Thursday – excepting bank holiday weekends – you can enjoy two tapas dishes for just £7.50.
