- the relaxed but initmate feel to the restaurant
- the cosy piano cocktail bar downstairs and the piano playing and singing on Friday and Saturday nights
Add to that, we only live 10 minutes away by foot and it's no wonder Entree is in my top 3 local picks. This visit was our second trip, again with Matt and Tom who were with us last time for dinner followed by singing or should I say, screaming, in the cocktail bar until the staff were ready to turn off the lights (still with a smile).
This time we were there to celebrate Dave and Tom's birthdays, starting with some bubbly served by Jayke, the awesome owner/manager of Entree. The food was just as good as we remembered it - Dave and I put this to the test by ordering the scallop and crab lasagne with chive beurre blanc which we had last time but was equally good second time around. Matt and Tom had the duck ballotine (sausage) with duck jelly and purple seed mustard. Both entrees were fab.
The mains were impressive again with the perfectly cooked free-range pork belly the pick of the bunch, nicely served with parsnip puree, sage jus and Chanteney carrots. The main was only beaten by Tom's dessert choice: the sticky fig and ginger pudding with brandy caramel and ice-cream. The pudding was so warm and moist with the right hint of ginger, making it a perfect finish for a winter meal. 10 out of 10 again for Entree....I'm already looking forward to the next visit.
