Default Chez Antoine

We are a couple of doors down from Chez Antoine. It used to be Tonik Bar on Roger de Flor. This is small bar and restaurant which is owned by Chris, formally of Centric. You could not meet a friendly guy whose food is so tasty along with great value for money. The food is tapas style and they are generous with their portions. Delicious plump mussels in garlic butter is a must to try. At the moment mostly locals but as more people hear about them they are getting a few more tourists. Itís a great addition to PP we think and letís support them if we can.

Sounds great! - I do feel for the bar and restaurant owners who have opened new businesses in the midst of this crisis as it must be so much harder than usual to build up a regular clientele and turn any sort of profit without the support of tourists. Let's hope they all survive this season, we will certainly be there as soon as we can to support them.

If it’s the one I’m thinking of, I remember it before it was Tonik, when it was owned/run by an older couple. I used to pop in there for a beer on my way to buy a lottery ticket on Tuesdays and Fridays. Their were usually 2/3 locals in there having an after work drink, but it was never busy. The man would be pottering about behind the bar, and the lady would invariably be sat in front of the TV watching a Spanish version of Jeremy Kyle or similar, whilst drying/polishing cutlery. When it became Tonik, it seemed to become popular for children’s parties ..

I must be getting old!! But I did used to like those bars and restaurants that were run by their owners personally.

They have the right attitude about: quality of food, value for money, genuine friendship. Loyal customers.

Sadly few now exist, successful establishments closed or taken over by chains due to competitive pricing versus quality and service.

I feel like launching into song again... Mary Hopkins...Those were the days ...

Support these small establishments else they will disappear!

Leave off, If you keep that up I'll be wiping a briny tear from my eye.

Oh Dear, reading that back it dosen't read well, but you get my drift.

I remember having a couple of drinks in there once it twice with Roy Regan and his pals. Also the menu del diamond was cheap and plentiful. The owner was called Juan, and he ran it with his wife. Loved it there.
Happy memories.

If we can get this conversation out of the toilet, after having bought my lottery ticket, on the way back I sometimes popped into another bar, a few doors away from the small Esoski local (almost opposite O’Lume/Portofino). This was run by whom I thought was the owner (a short, stocky, moustachioed man) who, when he spoke in almost perfect English, sounded quite like a Londoner, owing mainly to the fact that he had worked for many years in London, and was proud to be a supporter of the most disliked football team in the league - Millwall. The last time I was in PP (September 2019), the window frames and frontage of the bar had been painted dark grey, and it was closed. I suppose he had retired. It was a real pleasure to chat with him..

I agree regarding the previous owners.We always went there for a snack on market day. The last visit in 2019 we were led to understand that the young guy then running it was the son!
