Olives were cheap, cheese board had one tiny piece of cheese on it, bread was too crusty and hard. I could put together a better cheeseboard from the normal contents of my fridge.
Plus the evening was made worse when I arrived home tonight to find a rather snooty message on my phone telling me off for not honouring my booking when I had been in the restaurant, most strange.
For mains the party had the chicken, duck and venison and sides of fries and cauli – all were pleased with their meals. Staff were helpful and attentive. We ploughed on to the desserts and between us we had the milo pudding (everyone’s favourite), rhubarb, apple crumble.
Staff were great and organised a candle to be placed in the birthday boy’s dessert which was a nice touch. A little bit of inattention at the end when we wanted to pay the bill but all in all a great night with food that was different and tasty. We’ll be back.
Pretty much everything was superb. My only gripe would be one inexperienced waitress, but even she wasn’t so bad.
The decor is a mixture of low light/white subway tiles/greenery/metal chairs/recycled paper menus, but all put together in a lovely way – not too over the top nor cheap-looking. You could see the open plan kitchen from where we were sitting but it wasn’t in your face at all. I really liked that I could watch the chefs do their magic. Service was better than only ok – our coats were taken off us when we arrived, and we got lots of attention throughout the meal. The music was a mixture of 70/80s soft rock – awesome mix
And then there was the food…! We all got straight into the shared plates; the crispy wings & lamb hotdogs were delish, although the banana prawn lettuce dish looked better on paper to be honest.
We then all ordered a main to share which is such a great way to eat in a group – and the dishes are all cut to small serving sizes to make sharing easier. We had the poisson, beautifully cooked sirloin, venison, cauliflower with a very tasty harissa sauce, but my fave was the duck. Everyone needs to try the duck.
The desserts were all trialled too of course. Would have been rude not to, really. They had the most interesting dessert menu – churros, truffles, chocolate sorbet, AND s’mores with the PROPER Graham crackers too. YUM! Double thumbs up on the s’mores.
I was so astounded with the cost – after ordering all of the amazing food, a few bottles of wine, beer, cider (they ALSO sell Rekorderlig cider!!) we only paid $80 each. Not bad at all.
After 5 hours in this place and having a fabulous evening, I’m pretty sure its safe to say we’ll definitely be back.
