The 1886 is the fanciest restaurant in the town centre, serving inventive Mediterranean-French food and a few Egyptian dishes with a twist, all in a grand old-style dining room. The waiters are in formal attire and guests are expected to dress for the occasion – men wear a tie and/or jacket (some are available for borrowing). A grand evening out!
The menu changes with the seasons, but expect delicacies such as grilled spine lobster in a butter sauce, or risotto of prawns and truffle. Pressed duck is a speciality, and there is an extensive (and expensive) wine list.
