Designed to bring joy, comfort and pleasure. Flamed, charred and smouldering from fire, alma’s food style travels through seasons, produce and localities from our own neighbourhood whilst nodding to a few from afar.
A broad and playful wine list houses Spanish wines and a captivating cast of New Zealand grown Spanish varietals. Explore an array of Spanish sherries and vermouths. Or meander through a purposely constructed gin list for your own curation.
From dawn to dusk sit amidst Andalusian tiled colour and contrast, or nestle outside between native grasses and shady pohutukawa. Come for a morning coffee and freshly baked Spanish pastry, breakfast, lunch or dinner, and those slower moments in between...an afternoon sweet and sherry or aperitif and gilda.
