It's been a little while between visits so it's time to redress the situation.
Cheese Soufflé, pineapple & ginger chutney, parmesan tuile (from Lunch Menu)
You really can't go wrong when you order the soufflé - the interior is deliciously soft and creamy
Appetiser Plate - top row - Cheese Soufflé - Oysters with Salmon Roe - Caramelized Scallops potato blini, mushroom duxelle, horseradish foam
bottom row - Duck Liver Parfait toasted brioche, blood orange reduction - Escargots de Bourgogne gently cooked in garlic butter - Atlantic Salmon basil & tomato spaetzle, olive tapenade
I did manage to nibble on a few of these - Paalo generously handing over one of those fantastic scallops.
As a treat, the kitchen very kindly sends out this next dish for us to share
Soft Shell Crab zucchini & lemon spaghetti, smoked tomato gazpacho
I just love soft shell crab and this was an exceptionally good specimen - a great combination of crisped shell and fleshy interior, the smoked tomato gazpacho is quite special.
Chicken Breast parma ham, forestierre mushrooms, pomme rosti , truffle jus (from Lunch Menu)
The fantastic presentation is equalled by the taste. The chicken breast is stuffed and rolled, served in thirds that sit on small potato roesti rounds.

This comes served with pommes frittes and scissors to cut through those excellent meaty sausages.
