European dining in Dartmouth
Born in Paris to Italian parents and trained in the UK, Luca Berardino merely has to retrace his roots to find inspiration for the modern European menus of his Dartmouth restaurant.
Named after the Puglian town of his ancestors, Andria is where the talented chef turns his memories and food experiences into unconventional tasting menus and a daily line‑up of carefully crafted small plates. Presentation is clean, simple and designed to let bold flavours shine.
Given its location in the smart harbour town of Dartmouth, it’s no surprise that Andria’s menus often swim with the likes of Brixham crab, local cod and hand‑dived Torbay scallops. There’s a good showing of local meat too, including Devon‑reared beef, pork and lamb.
However, this is not a dining spot solely for carnivores. Vegetarians are also well catered for via a dedicated menu that features creative compilations such as Dawlish hen of the woods with parmesan cream, slow‑cooked egg yolk and chives.
The pleasing food is accompanied by a great playlist, relaxed atmosphere and top‑notch wines which include an impressive selection available by the glass.
