Eat & Drink at The Slow is a contemporary take on ingredient-focused cooking with an island accent. Chef Robbin Holmgren draws upon his prestigious career at the helm of world renowned kitchens, creating an ever-changing menu of revamped classics injected with bold, exotic flavours, and his iconic “contemporary European” style. Always with an emphasis on seasonality, sustainability and sane eating.
The light and airy restaurant, under a high-line of botanical chandeliers, is a magnetic meeting spot with friendly service and a bohemian sensibility. A laid-back and intimate dining experience through the afternoon and evening, the menu focuses on impeccable, seasonal produce, with Holmgren creating dishes that marry bold flavours with beautiful presentation. The use of techniques such as curing, fermenting, pickling and smoking showcase the chef’s passion for nature, turning traditional methods into innovative cooking.
The inventive drinks selection, inspired by mythology and history and designed by London bartender Maya Jaworska, highlights specialty batch spirits, extractions, and tonics, with all cocktails pre-batched in-house. Revitalisation comes in the form of freshly made infusions, blends and tonics featuring ingredients like hibiscus, lemon leaf and moringa.
A carefully selected wine list presents small growers, regional styles, and quaint vintage wines, encouraging guests to try some of the best old and new world wine the island has to offer. A small collection of local craft beer completes the thirst-quenching offerings. The restaurant connects to Room 13, The Slow’s gallery space, which features a barista station and rotating art collection.
