Paul ordered the Veal Involtini which contained crumbed veal filled with ham, roasted capsicum and cheese, served with mash and spinach. It tasted very nice and the tangy flavours of the tomato type sauce worked well against the veal.
I decided to order the Twice Cooked Duck with spinach, crispy polenta and a sweet balsamic sauce. The flavour and texture of the duck was very nice, with a crispy skin and tender meat. I liked the sweet balsamic sauce at the beginning, but after eating more and more of it, it started to become a bit too much. The crispy polenta didn't do anything for me, it was bland and tasted funny, guess I will never be a polenta fan.
Service was ok and the meals arrived quite quickly, which was good since we were running short on time. I liked the look of the place as the view out into the harbour was very calming. There was plenty of sunlight streaming in through the mainly glass walls, which made my feel even better. The prices of the dish is quite fair for good food.
Overall Rating: 12/20, Food and service good. Ideal for a lunch or quick meal where you want something decent without being overpriced. The menu looks a bit plain and I probably wouldn't travel all that way out there for a dinner though.
