We were given a voucher for the signature tasting menu paired with wine (worth €135 total each) & availed of it on a Wednesday night in March. I noticed there is a table d'hote menu & vegetarian tasting menu also. There are two rooms to sit in & we chose the bigger room which had a lovely atmosphere. It was a 3 & ½ hour tasting extravaganza which we thoroughly enjoyed. We had prosecco to start followed by a pre-amuse bouche of smoked mackerel lemon & horseradish in a cone, a delicious mouthful that whet the appetite. One of the waiters briefly explained the amuse bouche, but I didn't understand so asked for a repetition & still didn't understand exactly what the ingredients were however it was mouthwatering. We were offered warm bread twice & I savoured the curry & cumin bread & sourdough options. The next course was scallops with leek lardo sourdough & ash which was paired with a 2016 Sancerre. Fabulous & my favourite: I could've have eaten 3 times the scallops as they melted in the mouth. Next was cod with lime, cucumber & seaweed butter, paired with a 2016 Oropasso, the meal was getting better & better. The main course was wild wicklow venison cooked to perfection & served with beetroot, black trompettes & juniper berries. I felt there could have been more venison or some form of potato/carbohydrate on the plate to make it perfect. It was paired with a full bodied 2015 Chateau Pesquie. Divine. Predessert was orange sorbet with a surprising sensation. This was followed by deconstructed tiramisu served with an espresso martini. Finally we chose coffee served with 7 delicious petit fours (I particularly enjoyed the mini lemon meringue & chocolate sour cherry ones). The pace of the meal was perfect. Service was efficient & friendly. What a heavenly meal! Compliments to the team of chefs involved in their flavourful food creations. My dining partner said it was the best meal in her life & it was in my top three. We hope to return some day!
