We attended on a friday night the 19th choosing the 10 course degustation. My partner had the matching wines. The food was just superb.
There is such drama, theatre and presence to the meal. We enjoyed being able to spend a nice night together enjoying the food and company.
Degustation does take over 2 hours, I think our 10 course took about 2.5 hours. We watched people order a la carte and their dining was less than 1 hour for their 3 (or 4) course meal and drinks.
We each had our favourites. But we both agreed the seafood dishes were superb. My partner enjoys all dishes that have vinegar pearls, I enjoyed the wasabi pearls for a bit of fire but not much heat.
My partner has always maintained he does not like beetroot and is fairly dismissive of tomato.
After our meal this second time he confessed maybe he likes beetroot and tomato, I think it is more he enjoys they way it is cooked and presented but it is lovely to see such a fussy eater enjoy new and wonder food, and that is what Absynthe has given us
This was our second time dining please see my review for September for our other experience.
