Dinner for two at Little House last night was just delightful.
We each had the seafood chowder as an entree, served with a small rosemary bun. The mains and desserts looked very appealing so we asked for small serves of the chowder; a good idea since the mains were substantial. The staff were accommodating too, no problem giving us smaller serves. And it was a really good chowder, with a variety of seafood, potato and carrot and a thick flavoursome broth.
I had a chicken ballotine for main, and my dining companion had a sirloin. We added a side of chat potatoes with paprika. Everything was good. My dish came with an interesting garlic-tinged puree (I've forgotten what it's called, a Greek mixture), capers, olives, artichoke hearts and little tomatoes. The steak came with kipfler potatoes, asparagus and some other veggies. Everything was cooked appropriately. We were pretty full so couldn't manage a dessert each, but were relieved to see that a dessert tasting plate was offered, so we shared that. Each morsel was very nice, but the passionfruit truffle chocolates were particularly memorable. The coffee was spot on, too; not too strong.
It's BYO, but we were happy with water and soft drinks. I had sparkling apple juice which was the best I've tasted in some time. The staff were all attentive and helpful. I need a walking frame to get around at the moment and they helped me in and out of the main doors, and when we left the chef actually helped me get into the car! All up it was under $120 for two people to have entree, main, dessert, soft drinks and coffee.
