Head Chef Jonas Lodge and his team at Resturant GL50 are getting amazing reviews for their food.
“We were blown away by how good the food was and were impressed that the food was served by the chefs who made it, so they were able to tell us about the dishes. The head chef was also very excited to talk more about how he came up with the menu items. There is clearly a lot of passion in this restaurant – will definitely be going again.” Tripadvisor customer review.
