We decided on eating here last week because they have a beautiful set lunch that is $28 for 2 courses, and $33 for 3. Their food has never disappointed us once, except for the afternoon chocolate fondant cake - for some reason it is always
overcooked when we go for lunch. We haven't really sent it back, because it takes extremely long for them to whip up another one. They have a huge selection of desserts though, so you can order anything else. When done properly, their fondant cake is very nice though.
We started with the cos lettuce salad with prawns, desiccated prosciutto, and ebiko. I had the breaded portabello salad with a poached egg [$18]. It was pretty amazing.
I ordered the crayfish mac & cheese [$16], which is one of the best mac &; cheeses I've had on this side of the globe. It's not super legit in that the sauce is not creamy and most of the cheese is piled on top; but the non creamy sauce that surrounds the penne and chunks of crayfish was excellent.
My bf ordered part of the lunch set, which was the braised pork cheek with mashed potatoes. It was divine, and I don't even like pork. Even more divine than the Japanese way of doing toroniku. Every little bit melted in your mouth, and all the fat had rendered. The red wine gravy was excellent. I still dream about this pork cheek.
So everything was a 10/10 except that fondant cake that they can't seem to get right. All in all, still a pretty good meal by my standards.
The place is pretty crowded for lunch, and the interior decor is all grey and classy. I like going here for dinner too, they do a fantastic grilled cod, prawns en papillote, patatas bravas, probably everything they do is excellent especially if you order meats you are predisposed to. It's pricey but one of the most consistently good places I've been to i.e. you can bring guests here.
