Gotta be honest, I found Automata purely from someones Instagram photo and because the food was so simple and pretty I had this place flagged on my to go list until an appropriate reason came up. To my luck, surprising and celebrating the husbands achievements gave us a reason to spoil ourselves lol. Now days with a mortgage and commitments, eating lavish meals like this is most likely going to be less frequent and cheap eats will soon be the food we resort to the most.. – not that there’s anything wrong with that!
I totally recommend you give this place a try! The food is presented absolutely stunningly and it packs a punch in your mouth. The atmosphere consists of mainly communal shared tables which gives off an amazing vibe and the staff are absolutely friendly! Anyways, i’ll let the photos speak for it self and you can be the judge by making a visit to their restaurant!
