A few of us visited one Sunday evening last month, all having the tasting menu.. Firstly the bread selection was nice, and foie gras amuse bouche was great.. The two wines were had were also- one being a Montrachet that was much more rounded than any we've had before.. What (slightly) let the meal down for us was the first two courses: #1 being a stick of asparagus, balsamic and goats cheese- I don't know if this was acting as a second amuse bouche but it was certainly not a worthwhile course on the menu... #2 was salmon, prawn and samphire- which was nice and refreshing- but maybe a course which would be better suited between heavier courses: by the third course we were praying for something rich and flavoursome- in comes the langoustine, which for me was the best dish, and will stay with me for a long time!
Then the foie gras came, and delivered well- although the orange curd was slightly overpowering and sweet.. We then had Brill (I think) which I remember to be very nice.. Followed by lamb which had well paired, deep flavours.. The cheesecake was very nice and the soufflé was a knockout- almost literally! At the end of the meal we were well satisfied, but it just had a slow start until the serious flavours came out!
