From The Argentine to Andalusia

July 30, 2014

“Life is a journey. To travel is to live twice ” ( Omar Khayyam)

Our new dinner menu starting Thursday 31st July on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings each week, is inspired by a journey from The Argentine to Andalusia and beyond. It’s a journey taken by our chef Sebastian who has created this menu .

SebSebastian started working at St. Giles’ Cafe in December 2014. He works closely with Head Chef Dave on a day to day basis, making sure that the daily specials menu and cafe menu are interesting and using the best seasonal ingredients available. Although Sebastian heralds from Argentina, his culinary repertoire is heavily influenced by the Andalusia region of Spain. His passion of Argentine and Spanish cooking has seen customers return for his evening menus and he has enjoyed taking the helm of our events at St. Giles’ Cafe.

Our evening menu is priced £18.50/£24.50 for 2/3 courses a well as bring your own wine (£3.50 per bottle corkage).

Comments from our customers on TripAdvisor:

“Last week, for our birthdays, I took my wife there to a Spanish-themed meal. A guitarist was playing discretely in the corner, and an Argentine chef served a memorable steak cooked in sherry. The three-course meal for two came to £46, the Spanish waitress was enchanting and efficient, and I count the evening among the most memorable culinary experiences that we have had during the five years we’ve lived in Oxford.”
 
“We went to St Giles cafe on a Friday night with some friends. It happened to be Argentinian night, as the chef was cooking his cuisine. It was superb. The waitress was one of the best we’d ever had. So friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. 10/10. The food was really unusual, we each had something different from the menu and tried it all. Not a bad dish going. We will definitely be returning with more friends.”
