Osta Cafe and Wine Bar

All the best places to eat, shop and stay in Ireland. A local guide to local places.

Brid Torrades is the great hero of Sligo’s food culture. Through different places and locations and propositions, through different decades – Ms Torrades was already running a restaurant in Collooney when we were writing the first Irish Food Guide – Ms Torrades has maintained an affable, creative and adaptive culinary personality, all the while enriching Sligo’s food profile. She has the perfect feel for good food, and the ways and the places in which people like to eat and enjoy it. She sources from the best local suppliers and champions their produce in the most delicious ways. She can make you the most delightful breakfast, and also cook you the most delightful dinner. Her adaptability is the stuff of legend: she has that modest-multi-tasking capacity that the best female chefs all share, and that auto-didactic zeal that means she is always ahead of current trends and the food world. For the last ten years, Osta has been the stage on which she performs her quiet magic, leading up a great team who produce beautiful things. She’s a hero.
