This place caught our eye in the passing (we were staying nearby) and a quick glance of the menu gave us plenty to choose from so we took a chance with getting a table. Although it was a warm, pleasant Friday evening we were in luck - there were quite a few people on the decking but inside it was quiet and we got a table next to the open glass doors. This was handy as when it became cooler later we just closed the door over with minimal disruption - a few others moved indoors to join us.
Our female server was pleasant throughout the evening and our food was served in timely fashion to allow for short breaks between courses.
We ordered a bottle of Saint Clair Pioneer Block 18 Sauvignon Blanc from the decent wine list but nice as it was, at $55 I think it was showing a healthy mark-up.
For starters my wife enjoyed a mixed vegetable bruschetta and I opted for scallops served with chorizo and a cauliflower puree - a dish full of flavour. For mains my wife had a beautifully cooked piece of fish and I chose duck confit served with caramelised onions, baby carrots and cherries - again full of flavour and both dishes were nicely presented. For dessert I had fruit spring rolls with distinct orange flavours whilst my wife had carrot cake with ice cream to round off a fine meal. The food was $134 bringing our total bill to $189 (£100) which was not unexpected for the standard of food and service.
It was Paul, the owner, with whom we settled up and he came across as being a friendly guy, happy to chat with us prior to us leaving.
Based on our experience we could easily recommend The Post for a nice meal.
