- What is it good for?

This is a great spot to have an informal meeting with creative clients. The restaurant is open all day and food is served until 1am weekdays and 2.30am weekends. There are indoor tables that seat up to 24, a sheltered table area outside or if the sun is shining sit beneath the trees next to some Banksy murals.

- Signature dishes

The menu is a mix of tapas such as Serrano ham croquettas and Pan con Tomate. For something heavier there are burgers such as the 6oz with Picos blue cheese and red onion salsa, and for diners watching their weight there is a selection of salads such as the watermelon, feta and pumpkin seed salad.

- Who's the boss?

Cargo is owned by the Cantaloupe Group, which also runs Market Place, Big Chill House and Big Chill Bar. Head chef is Serhiy Horibets and the manager is Anna Guzielak.
