We were the first couple in the back Gaia dining room for dinner. We felt that service was friendly and attentive. The very interesting head waiter chatted with us at length, and the manager came by to ask how we found the dinner. Gaia provided complimentary potato and rice crisps with bread and bread sticks that were not remarkable, several amuse bouche and a complimentary sampler of desserts that were very good and very much appreciated. I ordered the special of the night, salmon, which I felt was between average and very good. I felt my wife’s slow-cooked pork belly was quite delicious. The tiramisu was like many others with a lot of mascarpone without alcohol or coffee flavor. We were pleased with the sweet wine on the menu, Moscato d'Asti. The atmosphere in the back room is romantic-intimate with many booths (we sat at a table). Compared with other restaurants in the Goodwood Park Hotel building, the price was expensive for what we got. We feel that you have to know what to order and what to avoid at Gaia, so it would fall into the "adventure" category rather than the "reliably excellent" category of fine dining places.
