I was craving for good steak and wine one day. So, I searched high and low for one that pleases the tummy without hurting the wallet.
Once I stepped into the restaurant, I was transported to a quaint lil French place. All homey and cozy. Since it was at Robertson Quay, it was a away from the hustle and bustle of town. All the guests were sipping wing, winding down from a long week, and appreciating some fine dining.
Upon sitting down, they’ll provide with you with this hearty basket of bread. The bread is really good – not the full of air kind. And, it is served with warm butter!Plus, it came with all these spread and dips -– horseradish, bearnaise, mayonnaise, whole grain mustard and dijon mustard. Our adventurous streak went full gear as we tried all these explosion of flavours! The butter and mustard seeds ones were good. But, the horseradish was something else. Okay. Some flavours are a bit strong and slightly addictive – so go mild on it. Anyway, the variety is bound to satisfy everyone’s palate. And, let me remind you to save space for your steak!
As an appetiser, the meals come with a refreshing bowl of salad too! They were very generous with the dressing – you may ask for them to lessen it next time. I thought it was good to save some salad and have them in between the steak/fries as a contrast.
My friend had this Grilled Rib Eye Steak With “Vigneron” Butter ($38.80). He had it medium rare and I must say, it was amazingly cooked. The butter was fantastic and the rib eye truly just melts in your mouth. Perfecto!
On the other hand, I had Grilled Sirloin Steak With Herbs ($38.80). Just look at the thickness of that steak! Yummy yummy!
And, did I mention that all the steak are served with salad and free-flow of fries? The fries were mouth-watering good! I think they are fried in duck fat or something. Plus, the seasoning was just brilliant. I couldn’t stop munching on them! But, honestly, the serving was so generous I don’t think you’d actually need another serving.
And, of course we had to enjoy all these with White Chardonnay ($12.50) and Cockburn’s 20 Years Tawny Port Wine ($16). The Port Wine was simply amazing – it was strong and smooth. Just like how you’d like a man to be. Hahaha!
Given the ambience, quality of food, and reasonable price, I’d definitely love to come back to this place and recommend it to other as well. It’s perfect for a romantic dinner. Our damage cost was about $50-60 per person. Oh! And, I’d suggest making a reservation before going too! You can choose between an indoor or al fresco table.
