This was a mock non alcoholic mojito which tasted of lime and mint - it was refreshing and delicious!
I don't know the name of this but it tasted of a Hawaiian beach - basically of pineapples and passion-fruits.
We chose to eat from the restaurants 2013 Christmas menu, each course had three different options so there was a variety of meals to choose from.
For the starter I chose the Orange and Gin Cured Salmon, Dill, Honey Mustard Dressing & Rye Toast - The orange and gin flavored salmon added a gentle tang but didn't overpower the taste and the rye toast added an amazing texture - I'd recommend trying it!
One of my friends ate the Beef Fillet Rossini, Foie Gras, Celeriac, Wild Mushroom, Creamy Spinach & Port Jus - although I didn't try this I thought it looked too pretty not to be included.
For the main I opted for the Rosemary Gnocchi, Pumpkin, Pearl-Wen Brie & Tempura of Squash Flower - I have never understood why the a la carte menu's food are so minimal, that may be because I'm a big eater, however this was surprisingly filling! I love anything with brie and pumpkin so this dish was a top choice, the tempura of squash flower added an incredible texture against the soft gnocchi, it tasted like heaven. - I'd highly recommend this dish!
The desert was like heaven on a plate! I had Mont Blanc of candied chestnuts, Vanilla Cream, Chocolate Meringue, & Vanilla Ice Cream - the mont blanc had a heavenly taste of candied chestnuts which made me feel all festive and the vanilla ice cream was incredible - One of the best deserts I've tried.
I'd highly recommend this restaurant if your looking to celebrate a special occasion or just looking for somewhere luxurious to go,
