To start, we ordered an entrée to share. The tuna was seared nicely while the salad was zesty in flavour.

I was after something simple so I went for the special of Angel hair pasta with crab. With the classic flavours of garlic, chilli, parsley and crab, it was a great pasta dish. The serving portion was on the small size though, especially after returning from America, and you can see from the photo it was plated up very awkwardly.

The suckling pig was nice but not very tender and the soft and sweet baked apple was a great accommpaniment to the dish. Mr A found the greens on the side were extremely salty though. Mr A still enjoyed it but did not think it was anything spectacular.

My Apple pastry dessert was delicious and very fresh and light. All the elements were perfect and there was only a hint of liquor from the Calvados.

The crumbly and flaky pastry went well with the rich sweetness of the blueberry but I feel like ice cream would have been better with the pie instead of the cream. Still, it was a great dessert.

Overall, our meal was nice, but not exciting with the desserts being the highlight of our meal. The service was a touch stiff and not very warm but all our requests were met promptly.
Will I return? No, there are too many great restaurants in Melbourne and this was my second visit here so I would rather try new places.
