Last Friday, my partner and I decided to have a drink over a delicious meal in honour of the weekend ahead. As we live in North London, Cockfosters is one of our most favourite places where we love to go out. We always like to visit different places and try out a different taste of the area. Thankfully, the area is more than willing to provide – new places pop up regularly here, which is exactly why we love this part of the capital.
Turkish restaurants seem to be the highlight in this area with so many of them competing next to each other. We love Turkish food, as it is quite diverse. There is literally something for everyone and trying out different recipes is more than enjoyable. This time, however, we decided to venture and try something entirely different. Once we saw it, we knew that we are going to get a taste of it. It stood like a miracle in front of us – an Italian cafe restaurant called…..Miracles, of course.
Without further ado we walked in and were immediately greeted by the staff. It was at these initial moments we knew that we were at the right place. The staff was so welcoming and friendly. They were all smiling and acted very professional – the way you would expect from a
well-trained staff. We were sat at a nice, snug table.
It wasn’t too long before we both agreed on a starter – king prawns with garlic tomato sauce and lamb meatballs with salad. While waiting, I had a cup of flower tea. Delicious to say the least. Heading on to the Main Course with a Greek salad and some crisp curly chips – greatly cooked and kindly served. I think it is such delicious cooking that contributes so much to the charm of such local restaurants. The food of this place was so good that it truly has the potential to make me associate the entire area with it!
Since we pay great attention to how clean a place is, we should discuss hygiene. Without any delay, I want to say that the place looks immaculate. I went to the Ladies for a sneak peek on the cleanliness and can frankly say I wish all restaurants, clubs and pubs used Miracles as an
example. The lavatories were no less clean and fresh than the dining salon. It was obvious that they pay great attention to the place. I can only hope that the cleaning company they use or the staff they have trained to maintain the place clean only continues to do such great job.
I want to make one small point, if I may – the bartender was seen sweeping the floor which could easily result in contamination of drinks, glassware or crockery. They need to wait for that when there is no one around the table, just to avoid any unpleasant scenarios.
All in all – awesome place, highly recommend it to anyone looking for delicious food and a good restaurant experience in Cockfosters. 10 out of 10!
