We were amazed to find a restaurant of this calibre in a small town not located on a wine route.
The menu is small but still introduces enough variety to satisfy any diner’s cravings. It is divided into four sections: Starters, First Course, Second Course and Desserts.
We were not hugely hungry so preferred not to have a four course dinner. I chose a First Course of porcini mushroom ravioli, and the owner recommended that he serve me 1.5 portion as I was not having a starter or second course. The ravioli was delicious, cooked to perfection and flavoursome.
My partner chose the rolled shoulder of lamb which was tender and tasty. Three lamb noisettes were presented. The vegetable accompaniments however took nouvelle cuisine to new minimalistic levels: three string beans, a tablespoon of couscous, and a button mushroom on which wilted baby spinach leaves were placed.
We each had the Italian cheese platter to end the meal. It included a good variety of imported cheeses.
All in all a great taste experience. If you are hungry, please have all four courses. South Africans may find La Sosta a tad expensive, but the taste sensation is well worth it.
