Wonderful break with fantastic food!
Stayed at St Petrocs in Prospect House just around the corner. We had a fabulous room with a terrace which had table, chairs and sun loungers, pity it was in winter our stay as this would be ideal for chilling out in the sun.
The room was beautiful, modern and was suitable for disabled too. Even had a little lift which I used after a night out to save the steps up!
The breakfast was lovely with first class muesli and fresh fruit...masses of strawberries and raspberries in November! The cooked was good too and the walnut bread just made it.
The Bistro food was lovely but for an experience the Seafood Restaurant was AMAZING, and not silly small portions either.
I had deep fried Helford River shrimp to start with garlic mayo dip, the plate was piled high with these little wonders, which you eat whole, no fiddling around with these. Main course was a lovely dish, fish, scallops, mussels and langoustine in the most delicious of broths, with a hint of India methinks Rick after your lovely trip there?
Well maybe I shouldn't have had dessert after all that which was very filling, but who can resist, not me, so I had the Pannacotta with plum and ice cream, wow!
My only disappointment was the fact that there was Pâté foi Grasse on the menu, which should be a no no, Rick please note.
My hubby had booked this couple of days break for my birthday and I have to say, "we'll done Phil, you surpassed yourself".
We will put this on our list of favourite hotels and restaurants which we hope to return to.
