Unique multi-award winning restaurant located on Grape Lane. El Piano’s menus are all gluten and nut free – as well as being vegan. They also try and promote sustainable food, sourcing their ingredients from as near as possible (each dish has an average miles travelled estimate). A bit hippy-ish, but the food is really good.
