The interior is nice and clean and just a beauty to look at.IMG_8503

We were started off with some Charcoal Bread and an amuse bouche of Salmon Gravlax. The bread was fresh and warm.   Freshly baked, just a nice way to start it out.IMG_8504

The salmon was nicely smoked and a good way to start the meal.IMG_8505

Our appetizer was a Mango Scallop.  Seared Scallops with Mango Salsa and Mango Gel on top of Parsnip Puree with a Sesame Tuile.  The Scallop was cooked perfectly and the mango tastes weren’t too sweet, balanced our nicely.IMG_8506

A palate cleanser of Green Apple Sorbet with Orange Slices.  Cool and refreshing, for sure!IMG_8507

Lamb Rack on a bed of Spinach and Cous Cous with a Pistachio Foie Gras Roulade and Rosemary Lamb Jus.  The lamb cooked perfectly, the jus gave it a nice pleasant zing.  Just a well rounded dish. IMG_8509

Roasted Chilean Sea Bass on a bed of Mushroom Bacon Ragout and a Yuzu Truffle Butter.  The Bass was so tender and well cooked, the Truffle Butter was not too strong in taste and the Mushroom Bacon Ragout was not too oily either.  A great balanced dish.IMG_8510

Dessert was a Frozen Nougat with fruits and a Lychee Sorbet.  A nice way to end the meal.IMG_8513There are many options here, and the service was great without being overbearing.  Each dish was described by the servers in detail and a great place to have a quiet meal, especially with a loved one.
