Esca is our new local restaurant, and it is magic. WE had a weekend breakfast there recently and gave it ticks all round. Then we went for dinner. On my right was a bloke having a steak and it was perfect medium rare. He had this little pot of sizzling potato. Smelled amazing. But on my left was a bloke tucking into a slice of pork terrine, home made, that was so big it should have been a main course. So beware. I had the best chicken I've eaten for a long time and Karen had a little vegetarian pie thing. It too was great. It's a family restaurant, headed by a chef who was trained in top establishments in London. He wants to do simple Australian modern, he told me, but with top ingredients. For instance, they import wild barramundi from north western Australia, would you believe. Esca is a great place in a Queensland summer to just sit outside in the shade, listen to the birds all around and order something to eat when you feel like it. No rush. Check the website for opening hours.
