Upon my second visit to Jervois Steak House I brought along a colleague from work from Australia. That day I had been talking up the meal that was to come, although in hindsight I should have kept quiet to maximize the WOW factor. From the design of the old Victorian building to the quality of the sides, the expansive wine list, the ridiculously high standard of service (massive props to the girl that served us and the English waiter with the chops) and of course the steaks themselves, this place is hands down the best steakhouse I have even visited any where in the world.
There I said it.
My colleague also said it, and from the look on the other patrons faces, I could tell they were thinking it.
I highly recommend the Angus eye fillet with bearnaise and horseradish sauce. Your premium Japanese steel knife will slice through the fillet effortlessly like a samurai sword through butter. For sides I would suggest the mac and cheese fritters and the kumara. For dessert we had the butter scotch pudding and the chocolate fondant. Both incredible.
So for all you Trippers out there reading this and then reading some of the not so glamorous comments underneath, I suggest ignoring them, get in a cab and get down to Jervois for the meal of a life time.
