The exposed brick walls and dim lighting with it's bouquet of wired-together fluorescent tubes with incandescent bulbs in their centre giving the restaurant a romantic and bistro-cozy feel. Delux is a mix of a French and Cuban dishes featuring daily specials and certain classics. Service was very knowledgeable and friendly. They seemed to consciously fill our water glasses and check in at a few points but not to be over bearing and intrusive.
For our mains- Steve decided on the veal cheeks which were so tender, they simply melted in his mouth. They were perfectly cooked. They came presented with beet juice and at first glance - it looked like a bloody plate which to me but the jus when mixed with the veal was delicious. The veal cheeks came over a bed of sour creamy potatoes which was a good balance.
