Discover the Essence of Culinary Delight at poca: A Review of Pontcanna’s Hidden Gem

poca is situated on the Kings Road, technically Canton- depending on the current postcode boundaries- but let’s not argue: it’s Pontcanna. If you’re looking for an intimate restaurant with a dollop of dolce vita then you’ve found your culinary home.

An informal and relaxed dining room, with a focus on humble ingredients of the highest quality. There is a commitment to working directly with local suppliers to create a menu that reflects the seasons, as well as the creative touch of Chef Patron Antonio Simone. You’ve probably heard of him (Humble Onion and alium). If not, now’s your chance to experience classic combinations with unforgettable, rich flavours and textures.

The emphasis is on sharing, from smaller plates showcasing meat, fish, and vegetables, to larger plates such as glazed neck of lamb. All wines are also sold by the glass. Whether it’s a light lunch or dinner with family, friends, or colleagues, or a special occasion or celebrations, the menu at poca will not disappoint.
