My wife and I recently stayed two nights at the Requa Inn and for the most part, thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The Inn is beautifully restored and the people are very accommodating and friendly. The room we had was wonderful, looking out on the Klamath River and very comfortable. The breakfasts were fantastic.
Our only negative was the gourmet dinner we had. We made reservations for the 4 course dinner after reading the elegant description of it on their web. We were very disappointed. It's apparent the "Chef de Cuisine" is more interested in attempting to create bizarre and strange items rather than an enjoyable dinner with local foods. Here is the menu: first course was beetroot, carrot and sea lettuce soup, (tasted bland-like beets and water). Second course--lamb loin, fennel, nasturtium and wild ginger. The lamb was served cool, with the strange "foraged" items and was a tiny piece of lamb maybe 2 ounces--very odd. Third course--true cod, quince, parsnip and delicata squash. Again an extremely small piece of cod (odd choice for gourmet dinning) was served with a single tiny piece of parsnip and squash alongside. Finally a dessert--almond cake, blackberry, chèvre, and mint. This was the only part of the meal that was good. We left still hungry and very disappointed. I suggest that the "Chef de Cuisine" take lessons from the breakfast cooks who truly know how to create an excellent meal and one that satisfies your hunger.
If you go, forget the dinner and enjoy the Inn, the people and breakfast and you'll go away blessed!
