Left: Roasted squid, chorizo, parsley, pickled onion
Right: Smoked chicken wings, pork belly, mustard fruits
Organic tomato, buffalo mozzarella, herbs
Simple, elegant and impactful, the dish of Organic tomato, buffalo mozzarella, herbs was exceptional. We enjoyed the beautifully fresh tomatoes which worked in sync with the buffalo mozzarella, herbs and lifted by the balsamic vinaigrette to produce an enlivening dish.
Left: Grilled Robbins Island Wagyu bavette steak, herbs, potato, egg
Right: Scallops, bacon, truffle, watercress
Grilled goats’ cheese, beetroot, quinoa, hazelnut
We were particularly pleased with our entrée of grilled goat’s cheese with beetroot, quinoa and hazelnut as it had perfectly balanced flavours. The grilling had increased the intensity of the luxurious goat’s cheese and each element of the dish matched the other. The slight acidity from the beetroot brought a lovely tanginess that cut through the creaminess of the cheese. It all came together beautifully.
Left: Whole 1kg crispy fried snapper, asparagus, sauce grenobloise
Right: Cape Grim Black Angus 2+ tri tip, charred onions, roasted carrots, duck fat potato
Smoked Saskia Beer corn fed chicken, roasted celeriac, brussel sprouts
The smoked chicken was another highlight. It was wonderfully tender and beautifully smokey courtesy of Miss Fitzy’s custom-built smoker and curing room which provides a variety of smoked meats, fish, vegetables and ingredients.
Dessert tasting plate
Our meal finished on a high note dessert tasting plate which featured (amongst other delights) a velvety smooth Armagnac ice cream, fluffy cinnamon doughnuts and decadent bitter chocolate.
