The BBC2 Restaurant TV Show on Maple Road

12 years ago...

I have noticed that the owners of the Italian on Maple Road have gone on holiday and let their premises to the BBC2 show - The Restaurant.

Was thinking of heading down and trying it out tonight. Wondered if anyone has been there or knows much about the owners/contestants?


The final is on BBC2 tonight (wed 29/10)

Apparently hey get assigned their restaurants on tonights show (Thurs 11/9)

'The Restaurant' starts on BBC2 tonight (Wed 10th Sept 2008)

Apparently the the air steward couple got the Surbiton restaurant but were voted off when the cook got gastroenteritis.

It is all over. Da Lucio re-opened on Thursday evening (5th June) after the BBC filming finished.

I'm guessing those contestants were knocked out.

I don't suppose anyone here ate there?

It was sorbet and seasons, so it is the two gay guys I think.
