1st course – alaskan crab, tomato gelatine, cucumber sorbet was exquisite,
2nd course = mozambique scampi basically lobster size, with seafood bisque. simply delicious.
3rd course = linguine with baby squid & squidink sauce very good standard, al dente pasta and very tasty.
4th course = choice of pan seared cod OR lamb loin, herb crust, egg plant. lamb was great as before. cod the usual good standard.
