Before the new cook took over one could wait a good hour for the first course. No more, but perhaps because we were seven and had a pre-ordered menu. Still we arrived early (7:30p.m.) and didn't get out until 12:30. It was worth it though.
The amuse bouche was a little strange with flavours I could not identify. Then came two perfectly fried scallops in a light curry with a tiny banana. Next came a small piece of cod fillet sitting on a carrot cream with fennel – lovely, but then a strange celery flan thing came with clashing flavours that that I didn't understand, though everyone else found it wonderful.
The main course was a venison fillet with cumquats and beets, and a squirt of blood sausage, which sounded strange but tasted great, and the venison was cooked perfectly pink.
The dessert was another strange thing, chocolate and black olives. I am an adventurous eater and like strange combinations, but the amuse bouche ( a foamy truffle sauce with a hard piece of veggie under it) and the dessert were not just strange, but somehow the flavours did not harmonise for my taste.
The wine pairing was excellent. The sommeliere is a lady who really knows her stuff.
Get there early. Once it fills up the kitchen scrambles to keep up I have the feeling.
