Purple Feet

In Italy, it is believe that ancient method makes the best wine. Ancient method READS treading the grapes with bare feet until the juice is squeezed out and you'll have a purple feet, so, if you're cynical about dining in a place with "feet" on its name then better wipe it off...

Purple feet is inside wine depot in N. Garcia/Reposo, and offer “freestyle cooking”. The restaurant itself is situated at the end of those wine cellars (be careful not to break those bottles while you walk to the resto), before Lighting here is subdued which give the place a sheltered feel. It also has a small garden which you can also dine Italian style.
There is no actual menu here; their common to diverse ingredient is written on a black chalk board. Since this resto offers choose your own adventure type of cooking I am unsure of its consistency but our main dish is good.
Oh I have to mention their lack of drink list, yeah you can buy wine in wine depot and drink it while you eat, also the server can also suggest a wine that matches you dish but they don’t serve regular water nevertheless if you really want water you have no choice, but to buy a bottle of San Vittoria mineral water is available for P150.

For appetizer we ordered for stuffed mushroom for P300, topped with cheese,has tomato based sauce, is yummy and filling.

Salad with fresh greens, fruits, nuts and shrimp for P315.
Our main dish is the fish cobbler P400, our server suggests for crusted fish but we opt for mediterranean style. P400, our fresh cooked fish is served on top of risotto with veggies, olives and caper; the serving is good for one but can also be for two. We asked for their chili-sauce which by the way is homemade and is astounding (made our dish more palatable).

Oh, they also have a coffee shop named Vittoria’s Coffee; I thought it was Italian coffee but it is premier Australian brew, I haven’t tasted it yet… next time!

If you want to dine here, I suggest you made a reservation since the place is limited only for 30-40 people.

That's All!
