The Looking Glass
Wonderful meal in a fabulous little "local". The team who run this restaurant have put their heart and soul into the place and it really shows through in the food and the staff. Brilliant concept with the entrée tapa selection and really good value. This is the kind of local, small, non-chain place that needs supporting by all of Cheltenham.
What a lovely little restaurant just on the outskirts of Cheltenham in the classy Charlton Kings area of the town. Free parking is available directly across the road accessed through the entrance leading up to St Edwards School.
We went to the Looking Glass on a Tuesday evening and it was very quite. We were the only booking that evening although another couple took a table later in the evening. However, this did not affect us as we welcomed the quiet environment and full attention of the staff.
The Looking Glass prides itself in providing locally sourced food whenever possible. And it showed in the excellent quality of your dinners. The menu is not vast, but it has something for everyone. Two of particularly enjoyed the "Small Plates" where we had 5 very tasty Tapas type dishes. These I would describe as "luxury" Tapas. They were all gorgeous. Our fellow guests each had a Rump Steak and Fish Cakes between them. Both excellent as was the Malbec Wine from the wine list. The deserts were to "die for" with the Cheesecake being the most popular in our small group of four.
An excellent evening out. Great food and nice ambience. Great Service too.
Menu was varied and interesting and not run of the mill. The food was excellent. Service was friendly and helpful. The decor is lovely and ambience was good as the restaurant was not ‘echoey’.
Looking forward to eating here again soon.
We had an amazing evening. The chef was very flexible with me and my daughter. The tapas starters were exceptional, a real surprise treat. Would highly recommend.
Beautiful food, great service...Will definitelt visit again...
A wonderful evening with friends. The food was delicious and the service appropriately attentive. We were a little disappointed that some of the options weren’t available but we will definitely be coming back.
Excellent food and drinks at a great little restaurant
