Who loves a good deal? Me… come to think of it, who doesn’t love a great deal?
For just $59.00, a table for two got 2 entrees, 2 mains, 1 side, a bottle of wine, 2 cocktails and 2 affogatos. Our table of 4 bought 2 of these deals and prepared ourselves for a hefty feast!
The (overexposed) Treasury signage, interior decor shots and olive oil for our bread.
Inside the restaurant, it is warm and cozy even with the super tall ceilings. The restaurant fills up quickly with people whilst waiters are attentive and friendly. A much more preferred setting compared to the cold wet weather outside.
Half of us start off with these alcoholic
Caipiroska – fresh lime, sugar and vodka are smashed together and served short over ice. – OH. SO. GOOD. and refreshing!
French martini – vodka, black raspberry liqueur and pineapple juice shaken hard.
Next, we moved on to the 4 entrees to share:
Peppered beef fillet carpaccio with wakame, wasabi aioli; $14.90
Spiced crab with spring onion, mint, cucumber, sesame & crisp noodle salad; $16.90
House smoked salmon with green beans, cherry tomato, white anchovy & vincotto; $15.90
King scallops with caramelised apple, walnut & cos; $16.90
The beef carpaccio was a hit with the table whereas the crab was the least favourite. Shame that the crisp noodle salad was on the soggy side as that would have been a nice textural contrast to the crab. I thoroughly enjoyed the smoked salmon although most found the intense smoky flavours a bit too strong. Last but not least, the king scallops! They weren’t joking when they said that these were king scallops (can’t really tell from the picture), they were humungo and juicy and cooked perfectly. The caramelised apple was so good and sweet – perfect combo of flavours with the scallops! 😛
Fish of the day – barramundi
This. Was. So. Good. The fish was cooked to perfection – the flesh moist and juicy; the contrast of textures between the fish and vegetables were delightful as were the colours and flavours! A winner in my books!
Grain fed scotch fillet with roast garlic potato, feta & spinach; $34.00
Duo of pork: Belly with braised apple and shoulder with remoulade & port jus; $30.90
Roast pumpkin with thyme butter; $7.90
Steamed green beans, olive oil, pink salt; $7.90
As for the rest of the table, they didn’t seem to enjoy their mains as much as I did, mainly commenting that their dishes were on the heavy side.
We all finish off with an affogato each.
Rich velvety shot of coffee poured over a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Can’t go wrong with a hit of caffeine and sugar to end a delicious meal.
Thanks for the company ladies! Looks like I might have to come back for another visit soon. 😉
Value: 5/5 <== thanks to the scoopon 😉
