Just spent a lovely Friday evening dining at this fine Ladner restaurant. Have visited this venue on occasion for many years now and have had mainly very good experiences with just the odd time where either the food was not necessarily that terrific or the service a bit lacking, but not enough to deter us from returning.
Last evening though, everything fell into place in all respects. Had a wonderful appetizer of grilled prawns in a delicate sauce and followed that with the rack of lamb which was accompanied with a medley of varied vegetables, all delicious.
Finished my meal with a very tasty trio of dessert consisting of a delicate choc. mousse, ice cream and poached fruit, served individually on an elongated plate.
My spouse had a different seafood appetizer followed with the beef tenderloin and then fresh seasonal fruit and sorbet for dessert. All were wonderful as well.
The proportions of each dish were more than adequate and it was all good value. The owner Bruno Marti was in attendance that evening and is always the charming host. Briefly came out to say hello to the diners but was definitely kept busy in the kitchen along with his executive chef, as the restaurant was quite busy.
Also had a fellow playing classical guitar which added to the overall pleasant experience.
Would not hesitate to recommend this top notch dining venue to anyone who wishes a quality meal in an attractive and comfortable setting.
