Same tranquil setting, faultless welcome, professional service and good cooking as ever, but the lunchtime formula has changed. It's now shorter and slightly simpler bur still the same quality cooking. The lunchtime formula is now a choice of 2 starters, 2 mains, plus a dessert and coffee - and a snip at just 16.50 Euros. A short but good wine list.
The starter we chose was softboiled egg on a bed of celeriac puree, with crispy onions and balsamic dressing. A mixture we'd never eaten before but it was a clever, delicious combination. The main course was a succulent fillet of hake on a bed of couscous with calabrese spears; another winning combination. We finished with a pear tart; flakey pastry, ripe pear and egg custard were all spot-on. A great lunch at a modest price.
Much better than most restaurants in town serve, so well worth the short trip to find the Rooy.
