Lunch @ Montalto Restaurant

After a bit of back and forth we eventually decided to try our luck at Montalto Restaurant, located at the Montalto Vineyard and Olive Grove in Red Hill South.

It may be cold and rainy but that certainly didn't stop the punters turning up and without a booking, we are indeed lucky to get a seat.

On weekends, lunch is offered at a set price of $65 for 2 courses and $75 for 3 courses.

~To begin~

Pure flavours served in a smooth creamy soup.

A good combination - only negative was that the scallops had been cooked a fraction too long for my liking.

A very generous portion, in some places this would be classed as a main but we are in the country so different rules apply.


~Mains~

Tender lamb, sweet fennel, well cooked veg

Loved the skin with its toffee like character. Very tender belly.

~Dessert~

Although it looked very rich and heavy, it's actually quite light, mostly due to the dacquoise.

I've never seen a brulee "naked" so to speak. Thick toffee crust, vanilla seed speckled custard.
