Last night we were treated to a Vegetarian Culinary Experience at the Luke Dale Roberts x The Saxon, celebrating 10 years of families uniting (Traditionally) with my husband bae, my ride or die, homie, lover & friend:-)
We received a warm welcome from the hostess who took us to our seats. Our waiters then explained the tasting menu options. There are 6 menu offering, a standard 5-course tasting menu with Pescatarian or Vegetarian options and an 8-course menu with Pescatarian or Vegetarian options.
After long debates on what would be a great dining experience, we went with the 8-course vegetarian option.
The meal started with a cleanser, amuse-bouche course and bread for the table. We were then transcended on an extraordinary fine dining journey completed with tea pairing from Yswara.
The food portion sizes were perfect, neatly presented and cooked to perfection. Unconventional combination of flavours and textures to tantalize the taste buds. Every meal that was served had some unique taste to it and made it difficult to select a favourite. The tea pairing worked well, we drank some really gorgeous teas.
The restaurant is well run, great ambience and not too noisy. The service was impeccable with eloquent waiters attending to us at all time, from explaining the dishes presented to the teas paired with our meals.
Overall the dining experience was lovely, we did feel that the 8-course meal was beyond substantial. By the time we got to the dessert we were tired of eating. We both concluded that the 5-course would have been enough of an experience.
An amazing way to start our year of milestone celebrations. Thanks to ‘our people’ (you know who you are) for this incredible celebratory dinner experience. It was a splendid Saturday out.
