My first visit here was last year, but it was only for beers and not food so tonight it was all about the food.

The Food…

I was hungry tonight and wanted to try here’s burgers, as I have a favourite place in Craiova for burgers but will this one be as good?

Starter

Burger Downtown 28 Lei

Yip your seeing right two burgers…..that’s because the burger I order was a slider so you get two small to medium sized burgers.

The chips were nice but needed some salt or the dip.

Both burgers were very good and packed with flavour, and I would have them again.

Overall it was a very enjoyable meal and I would order the burgers again.

The atmosphere was nice as I sat outside, and it was a nice evening people watching and eating.

See you again Down Town

I asked the waitress about this and from her description it sounded good, so I had to give it a shot.

OH MY GOD!!!!! this is amazing!!!! I could have easily had this dish again but I was being good.

I have not had a bread and butter pudding for ages so it was time to try it here.

On arrival, this looked very nice and smelled nice to…

To be honest, I was a little disappointed with this, it lacked flavour for me and tasted more like a big bland pancake….this could be just my taste buds so don’t let this put you off trying it.

Overall my second visit was more YUM than meh…I loved my burger and those fries mmmm but the pudding was just so so.

I can’t wait to return to have those chips and try other dishes.

So since my last visit in 2017, I decided to pop back into the Swan and get some food as it was again another lovely day.

The Food…

I was happy to see that basically, you can get practically anything! and I really mean that. The menu has a vast choice, so you will always find something you like.

Main Course

Chicken Burger & Chips £7.75

IMG_8865.jpg

This was a nice burger and excellent value for money as there were two chicken burgers between the buns.

The chips were nice and many of them as you see, but I needed to add some salt (this is more a personal taste thing)

Well I can say tonight’s visit was much better than my last one, the atmosphere felt good again and the service was good.

If your visiting Troon this is a place to visit, as you will definitely find something to eat as the menu has a massive choice.
