I had the scallops. Oh! It reminded me of my youth. My mother was great at cooking them and this is the first time I had lovely fresh scallops. Cooked with perfection. Thank you so very much.

We visited the wild geese last night and I have to say it was really delicious. I had the goats cheese to start and my fiancée had the duck spring roll- very tasty on both parts and the spring roll was very meatily filled with soft duck. Then I had the scallops and pork belly for main and he had... More
