With a style of ‘neighbourhood casual dining’ all its own, Ortolana is a chic little bistro concentrating on garden-to-table dining in a very verdant setting at The Pavilions.
Set within an elegantly sunlit conservatory at the heart of Britomart, Ortolana – meaning ‘market gardener’ – is a 90-seat contemporary bistro serving fresh, light food for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
An open kitchen implores diners to watch as their food is prepared, and the fitout is classic and understated, with textural organic linens, natural stone flooring and exposed brick walls offset by shelves laden with gleaming copper pots and jars of colourfully preserved produce.
EUROPEAN INSPIRED FOOD FRESH FROM THE GARDEN
Aptly nestled beneath a lofty glass canopy within the garden-esque Pavilions complex, Ortolana’s ‘garden to fork’ philosophy dictates that all food served is locally sourced.
A boutique selection of wines has been carefully chosen, and ambrosial house-made syrups of rhubarb, rosemary and passionfruit are served with sparkling water.
Ortolana’s breads and baked goods are prepared fresh each day at sister eatery and artisan bakery The Store.
