The Special Menu

Having never tried one of these types of menu, where you get...
A) What you are given. (Actually this is what we have at home).
B) lots of courses. (Not what we get at home).
We thought it was time to give it a go. And this is what we ate....

A pre starter of Sherry Bloody Mary with Parmesan Lollipop.

An extremely tasty Duck Ravioli, yes kids mushrooms were involved.

Fish, described as "typical Mediterranean" complete with silver guilder violet potato. The waiter was a bit sad that I had realised that it was indeed a potato.

Main course of Duck, easily the best course!

Never had pre-dessert before but here you are, yogurt mousse with red berries.

All rounded off by deconstructed tiramisu. Don't get me wrong dessert was nice but kind of disappointing. I thought it would finish on a bang but more like a banger.
All of the courses were tiny but we finished feeling we had had enough but were not totally stuffed which was good. Back to like it or lump it tomorrow though!!


  1. I've never seen a gilded Violet potato before - this meal looks divine, especially the duck ravioli and parmesan lollipops.
