Started with the Buffalo Mozzarella and Plum Tomato “Caprese” where the dish is well made with the cut sliced of cheese. The combination of cheese together with the fresh salad is appetizing and yet filling as well.
Carpaccio of Hirame with Wild Rice and Soft Aubergine is the healthy combination which is being served to our palate too.The healthy and delicious wild rice is topped with the soft eggplant or so called aubergine on top. It is then lay with the seasoned of Hirame on top which gives a blend of soury and yet appetizing taste of it.
Next comes the Spaghetti Tomato Sauce with Sea Bass and Grilled Vegetables. The spaghetti is well served with the blend of the pieces of sea bass and grilled vegetables together with it. The dish is well prepared with fresh ingredients especially the spaghetti sauce. It is overall superb and delicious.
We completed the lovely meal with the Espresso Pannacotta. The Espresso Pannacotta is well made with the hint of espresso flavor which is well delivered. I love it so much and the berries are well place on the plate with the honey which makes the desserts even more perfect and delicious.
