Plate at No. 6 is an intimate tapas restaurant in Windsor, where diners can enjoy Mediterranean dishes in an open kitchen setting. Head chef Olindo Donadio, having worked at Michelin-starred restaurants all over the world, here crafts elegant plates inspired by the cuisines of Spain, Turkey, France, Italy, Greece, Morocco and Lebanon. A versatile space, the restaurant is well-suited to casual get-togethers as well as special occasions and dates. Furnishings are pared-back, with red banquettes lining the walls and plants lining the shelves.
Sip on summery cocktails while you sample the menu, with options like a cucumber martini, basil mash with Tanqueray gin or pineapple mojito. There is also a varied list of European wines with about half of the bottles also available by the glass, and plenty of spirits too. Start off with some rosemary focaccia and olive oil to go with your drink, or dive straight into the more substantial small plates, including cod and leek croquettes, smoked duck breast carpaccio and beef arancini with fior di latte and pea puree.
Larger vegetable plates feature options like ratatouille and tortellini parmigiana, while the seafood offering leans more towards octopus with creamy paprika potato, seafood gnocchi or a tuna fillet with salsa verde. Meatier entries include risotto Milanese, beef fillet with polenta and spinach or a rack of lamb with courgette, pine nuts and manchego. Finish with a choice of tiramisu, chocolate three ways (dark chocolate brownie, milk chocolate mousse and white chocolate cream) or pistachio baklava with raspberry sorbet.
Plate at No. 6 also offers a rather enticing brunch menu, with options like cod fingers with tzatziki, patatas bravas with garlic mayo and mussels with parsley and white wine broth. For the plant-based population, there is even a full vegan menu, featuring the likes of stuffed aubergine, gazpacho and bruschetta.
