We celebrated a friend's 50th birthday here along with our two children aged 6 and 7 who delighted in the fact that all of the food in some way is 'laced with chocolate'! We watched in amazement as our youngest smacked her lips in appreciation over the pumpkin soup and the incredible salad with white chocolate dressing. A child who prior to this evening would run screaming from the table at the mere sight of vegetables (okay.. a slight exaggeration perhaps!).
The service was impeccable and could not be faulted. Presentation superb and of the highest standard. The food was delicious.. not the very best that I have sampled but it could not be faulted. My husband found the 'chocolate' in every dish a bit tedious and was very slightly underwhelmed but he isn't a chocolate lover so I don't count his verdict. Anyway.. it was not always evident that chocolate played a role in every course.. cacao beans are actually quite bitter on their own.
Completely recommend the restaurant especially for Valentines, a wedding anniversary or any other romantic or memorable ocassion or simply 'just because'. Fabulous in every way!
