And now fans of the restaurant, which opened its doors in Edinburgh in March following huge success in Glasgow, can see what they'll be dining on.

The restaurant concept that creates a new menu every six weeks has gone through a number of themes since opening their first restaurant site in Glasgow’s Finnieston area last year, from Childhood to Forest and Illusion to Disney but now, for the first time, guests at both city locations will soon be able to enjoy the same menu.

Chef Nico Simeone and his team invite guests to re-live those childhood fantasies by entering into the wonderful world of Roald Dahl's chocolate factory with the Wonka theme menu kicking off at both Six by Nico restaurants in Glasgow and Edinburgh on Tuesday May 15th.

The new six course tasting menu includes a reverse cheese board; duck sweetie jar; beetroot dib dab; cod blackjack with Shetland squid, liquorice and cauliflower; cornfed chicken with chorizo popcorn, candied olive and mole poblano sauce and - of course - a dessert made famous by the movie, 'The Wonka Bar' with cherry parfait and peanut butter cheesecake.

And it wouldn’t be Wonka without unwrapping a golden ticket with six lucky winning tickets to be found inside Nico’s Wonka Bar dessert.
