We have stayed at the West Wind Inn for the past 10 years in early January however for some reason we have never dined at the Normandie so we decided to give it a try for dinner on Saturday evening. I understand it is only open Friday and Saturday evenings between November and March.
The interior is cosy and the use of pews as benches is a nice touch.
We both had the Parmesan grouper with red pepper and spinach risotto. This came with fresh bread and dipping oil and a house salad. The bread was warm and tasty. The salad had just the right amount of dressing and was crisp.
The entree of grouper was simply delicious and melted in our mouths. The risotto was cooked perfectly and the accompanying vegetables of carrot and green beans were cooked properly - not mushy or soft.
Sadly we had no room for dessert, just a nice glass of wine to accompany the meal.
Our server (whom we are meow used to seeing at the pool bar) was great and we thoroughly enjoyed both our meal and the atmosphere in the restaurant.
This may well now become a tradition when we visit the West Wind. I can't believe we didn't try it years ago!
