Promised to buy my folks dinner before Christmas. Have just moved to Bermondsey and want to show them the best we have to offer. Any ideas? Delfina is booked unfortunately.

Agree with Siduhe Tentazioni is divine (Italian) - not the cheapest, but definitely worth it.|311/

Lobster Pot in Kennington is supposed to be yum also, tho have never been.

Lobster Pot is brilliant but not cheap and the area (and security code to get into the restaurant) might scare your parents.

Champor Champor if you're feeling flush (but not hungry - the portions are tiny) and the Laughing Gravy as an all-round good egg!

The best place for special meat has to be Briss Butchers though Royston Vasey is a bit of a trek from here.

I'm with birdie Have lived here 15 years and Arancia still remains my favourite restaurant. Small and friendly, fabulous food, good service and fantastic value for money.

A friend recently recommended La Barca on Lower Marsh, I think it is a bit pricey though. My favourite place for taking family members at the moment is Mar i Terra near Southwark tube/ The cut. Espinicas Catalana, yummy and exciting flamming coffees.
