Went here for a Friday night dinner for two. The experience was very enjoyable overall, I'm just not sure that Michelin star hasn't slipped a bit. The welcome was excellent, and the staff lovely, very knowledgeable about the menu and wines and hugely attentive. You need to order a starter, main course and the dessert, or you'll get left hungry....portions are definitely 'Michelin' (read small and bijoux). Complimentary mise en bouche of duck liver parfait was gorgeous, the cod beignet less so. Nice homemade bread and delicious olive oil from Sardinia to dip it into.
Started with asparagus with black olive tapenade, crispy fried quails eggs, and some slices of salami...the combination of flavours was masterful! Thoroughly enjoyed that course.
Main was monkfish wrapped in prosciutto (2 medallions), served with 2 scallops, some cherry tomatoes and pesto sauce. My monkfish was a bit overcooked, making it dry, while my scallops were undercooked, so white on either side and well caramelised on the outside, still opaque inside. Now I love raw scallop, so I'm not on the squeamish side, but when its served cooked, it should be cooked so that the meat is sweet and slightly flakes apart when cut with a fork. It was neither and the dish just wasn't particularly flavourful. I could taste the saltiness of the pork, and the tomatoes were tart and sweet, pesto was ok...but the seafood which should have starred...just did not.
Dessert - we went for the sharing platter which gives 2 a taste of all the desserts, plus the raspberry soufflé, which turned out to be the absolute masterpiece of the evening! It was tart and sweet, full of raspberry flavour, and light as air! Once I tasted it I had no desire to dilute the taste with any other dessert. But beware, you cannot order it without ordering the entire platter. I did decide to taste the chocolate ganache, which for me was too dense and bitter. My eating companion tasted all the desserts, but also concluded that when you had that raspberry soufflé, the rest paled by comparison. We enjoyed the evening, but wouldn't go out of our way to go back for the food.
