Luca's is one of the best ice cream restaurants in Britain and has almost 100 years of history to prove it.
In cornets, you get a choice of vanilla, strawberry or chocolate - none of the fancy flavours as all their expertise goes into making these just wonderful (you can get tubs of different flavours). Soft and creamy, they're popular all year round. And in winter in Musselburgh, that's saying something.

Pataka is simply one of the best Indian restaurants ever - with no flock wallpaper or fake Indian music. It's decorated in the style of Rennie Mackintosh and the food (plus the service, atmosphere etc) is simply wonderful. If you don't believe me, ask Inspector Rebus. He goes there!

Fusion food, without the pretension or price, from the La Finca de Susana group. Beautifully decorated in white and cream, Bazaar has an intimate atmosphere with friendly and attentive, yet never overbearing, staff. Best of all, it has the most amazing desserts. Try the chocolatissimo - you'll think you're eating the food of gods even if you're not a chocoholic.
Expect to pay about £20 for two courses for two with bread, water and wine. And get there early (8.30pm).
Calle Libertad 21, close to Chueca metro station. Telephone 91-523-3905.
