Lucky to be passing by we managed to get a last-minute reservation here which upon arrival was quite busy for Tuesday afternoon. It seemed to be popular with ladies who lunch, business people and golfers alike, and given the spectacular setting should suit anyone really. Not only was it the oasis within a barren part of an increasingly epicurean country, it happened to be the sort of place which rouses in-party fighting to get the seats facing the gardens. Having read reviews I had high expectations.
After a disappointing start where good tuna and brown shrimps were overpowered by dressings, one creamy plus an oil overdose probably delivered by a wobbly hand, I was very relieved that the dishes got progressively better. The ultimate lip-smacker being the plum tart with praline ice cream which was quite finely balanced in all respects. Offer as per previous review is certainly good value.
It’s true that this venue is a bit grand and formal but a truly stunning setting which will be added to list of places to re-visit.
