We began our meal with beautifully fresh oysters.
Both our mains were delicious - showcasing premium ingredients; each perfectly executed with expertly balanced flavour combinations.
Our dessert of bay leaf panna cotta, strawberries, strawberry sorbet was of particular note. The panna cotta was a well-executed and enjoyable dessert that was notable for the fresh and sweet fruits and its flawlessly smooth and creamy texture.
Pure South's exceptional menu of fresh and flavoursome cuisine will take you on a culinary journey across the southern islands which will leave you wanting more.
