We don't often return to restaurants endlessly, preferring to try new venues, however we've now made St Isidore an Easter tradition, returning for our third year in a row. And it really is a Blessing !
A demonstration of culinary 'Etymologiae', deserving of great recognition, and certainly a reference in that 'bible' SMHGFG.
Endless superlatives about the food cannot really do the menu justice - a broad pallete of the chef's skills and influences are sure to find something to your tastes here.
Prawn Wontons - subtly expressed broth with that 'zing' of unadulterated freshness in a homage to great Asian cooking.
Trevalla and mussels - a delectable combination of flavours, traditional yet novel at the same time.
The sides - the Warrigal greens were just superbly delicious. Who would have thought? Eat your greens people...and be amazed !
The kitchen garden has been fully landscaped and is really worth a walk, it truly demonstrates the depth of passion and belief (and hard work !) in supplying the freshest and best ingredients for the menu.... and a nice view.
This time we were able to compare with 'that winery restaurant' up the road. Suffice to say it was a pretty easy decision to make that I won't be breaking with tradition again next year.
Unpretentious service, some might find it a bit slow, I prefer it relaxed and un-rushed and have no issues. The one exception to haughtiness was being "introduced" to our dessert, though we found this more comical than anything else.
One small error in the rib eye being medium, not rare, was recompensed vastly more than necessary - guys, that wasn't necessary, but I was pleased to see you really care.
Traditions being what they are, I do look forward to my pilgrimage to the Saint against next year. They are truly blessed, as are we to eat there.
