You cannot go wrong with this place for your romantic dates and other special occasions. Tow things I recommend in the menu:
- Sea bass
- Braised Lamb Shank
I recommend having wine with your drinks from their extensive selection. This is not just an eating place: This is a dining place. Savor every sip and slice of the experience :)
We went there for our wedding anniversary dinner celebration, including our kids. The ambience when we entered was awesome. It has a romantic and rustic air but matched with elegance as well. I enjoyed the risotto which was cooked perfectly. My wife liked the lamb which was tender and not gamy. The kids loved the ravioli and pork belly. The riesling wine we had must have added to the overall experience of aahhhh. . . . .
Walnut and Focaccia Bread with Sun Dried Tomato and Butter (Free)
Walnut bread was moist, not too crumbly and had the right texture. It certainly whets the appetite for what’s more to come.
Mushroom and Gruyere Soup PHP 320
Generous portions that start with fresh, high quality ingredients make up the menu and the specials. We had the soup split into two and it seemed like the chef added more so we can share it satisfyingly in bigger portion. Gruyere with its somewhat beefy taste heightened what’s already a flavorful mushroom soup. Note that they also did not scrimp on the Gruyere cheese.
Chris wanted to order wine to go with the Sunday lunch but I declined since we were going to get a massage right after.
Braised Lamb Shank with Apricot and Red Wine Sauce PHP 880
I was undecided between the rib-eye or the lamb shank (having had this only a few days before) but trusting Marjo’s recommendation, lamb was again the preference that day. This was the only miss among what was prepared for us. It was a big chunk of meat, which made the carnivore in me really exuberant, positioned upright on soft polenta bed. The polenta was perfect and I wish I could say the same for the lamb shank. The lamb shank was quite dry sans a healthier color. The dish was accompanied by an extra serving of red wine sauce but the luscious sauce was not enough to mask the meat in drought.
