3 months before our wedding, I finally found and ordered my wedding dress! And actually, Jess did too (unexpectantly)! Thank you to Gladstone Bridal for everything… which I will share more about in another blog post 😉
After our dress adventure, we met up with Michael (who was killing time waiting around for us and Mike R to catch up over dinner. Both Mike R and Kon were in Gladstone doing an Emergency rotation, but unfortunately, Kon was working the evening shift.
Michael has been to lightbox for tapas dinner in the past and loved it. We have also all enjoyed an awesome breakfast there previously… check out this lightbox breakfast with eggs your way, bacon, sausage, roasted roma tomato, mushroom, baked beans and sourdough ($24).
Given our previous good experiences, it was a no brainer to meet up at lightbox for dinner!
Service was impeccable as always. We arrived a little early for dinner but the place was packed later in the evening.
We enjoyed a number of tapas dishes including the following:
Leek & manchego croquette with spicy mayonnaise ($9)
Crispy Moroccan wings with lime aioli and lemon ($14)
Lemon pepper calamari with tartare and lemon ($12)
Sweet potato wedges with sweet chili mayonnaise ($8)
Bruschetta with mushrooms and savoury schurros with cheese (sorry, I can’t remember exact name and price, and they are no longer listed on the menu)
All the dishes were nice and as stated in the menu. Good serving size for price and I always appreciate generous servings of sauce! Great food, day and night, always friendly service and a changing menu. Would love to go back for dinner and try their main dishes! Definitely worth a visit if you’re in Gladstone!
