‘Perfection’ is the word that springs to mind. Totally owner-driven and by such a charming and affable couple. Wonderful, relaxing surroundings, great food of arresting quality and freshness. I loved it – everything worked!
All the dishes were more than the sum of their parts, the balancing and combination of flavours were spot on, turning what might be considered ‘simple’ ingredients into a taste sensation. White gazpacho – wonderful! Great consistency, perfectly balanced flavours of almonds, garlic and lemon, quite intoxicating. Confit of duck, succulent soft meat and crisp skin, but what raised the dish above the ordinary was the addition of the mustard infused lentils lending rustic flavour and the preserved naartjie the juice of which could be used to ‘dress’ the lovely fresh leaves and the soft skin acted as a perfect foil to the richness of the duck. I skipped dessert – although I did taste a pretty perfect crème brûlée, with a glass like topping and heavenly rich cream below – in favour of another starter – a gruyere soufflé with a red pepper cream - aromatic and light as a feather and actually a great end to a most enjoyable lunch.
