Bayona is a cosy restaurant, with a pleasant courtyard area for drinks (useful, as the table was not ready for some time after the time we had reserved). We had the unusual spectacle of a clearly drunk maitre d’, who managed to pour water into a half full wine glass but was at least very apologetic and produced a new bottle of wine. Good wine list, including the lovely Zind Humbrecht Gewürztraminer. Corn biscuit with shrimp was pleasant enough, with nicely cooked shrimp (14/20). A double cut pork chop (i.e. twice the size of UK pork chops) was very nicely cooked, with excellent snow peas and good sweetcorn to accompany it (15/20). Salmon with sauerkraut was also capable, with well-timed fish and fair cabbage (15/20). A lemon tart was not very good, with acceptable pastry but a rather sludgy lemon filling (11/20). Apple pancakes were also mediocre (11/20). Overall, desserts and sommelier aside, a pleasant experience.
