My husband & I had dinner last Friday night in the restaurant after driving past every day on our week's holiday in nearby Goodwick. I looked at the menu on the website which sounded amazing so we turned up on spec at 8pm. As we hadn't booked we assumed we'd have to wait or not be able to eat at all but the restaurant was not that busy at all - surprisingly. The waiting staff of four were all young people and pleasant enough, but very lax in their customer service - the only negative comment I have.
We sat in a cosy booth at the back of the stylish and lovely restaurant. There were five other parties eating when we arrived.
Our 1st waitress took 10 minutes to take our drinks order which was disappointing. Then another 10 mins to take our meal order. However the food was simply stunning so we accepted the extremely slow and lacklustre service!
Complimentary savoury brioche & slice of granary bread & butter (without asking!) we're delicious.
My starter - asparagus, wild mushrooms, poached egg & peashoots was absolutely beautiful - best I've ever had. My husband's chicken satay skewers were similarly amazing. My main was shoulder of local lamb, gratin dauphinois, French beans & peas with lardons & a delectable jus. The lamb fell apart, it was so tender & perfect, everything was fabulous - personally lardons are not my bag so I merely took them out but the meal was sublime. My husband had chicken supreme with a wonderful light sauce, triple cooked chips, roasted vine tomatoes & Portobello mushroom & he loved it too.
We were too full to sample the delicious sounding desserts unfortunately so contented ourselves with coffee - Americano with home made, melt in the mouth fudge for my husband & a liqueur coffee for me.
Overall, despite the frustratingly slow and impersonal service - 4 different waiters over 90 minutes - we had the most fantastic meal out we've ever had.
Highly recommend this restaurant to anyone in the local area or any visitors. Am seriously wishing we could make the 190 mile round trip for another stunning meal but don't think my husband would go for it!
Bon appetit to those who do go - it really is worth it!
