The inspired menu was the brainchild of Executive Chef, Sofiane Kaced. He has drawn on his 20 years of culinary experience and fond love of travelling to create a refined and delicious menu that will appeal to curious foodies.
Here are some highlights from the dinner at the W/A restaurant. The oysters were beautifully fresh.
Healthy salad options are available
However, I couldn’t resist the waffle burger. I chose mine plain but you can have all the glorious toppings to bring out more complexity in this inspired dish.
If waffles aren’t your thing, then you can’t go wrong with their steak – succulent, flavourful, and perfectly seasoned.
For those preferring a lighter meal, we loved the salmon which is perfect for lunch
However our youngest diner jumped straight in with dessert, which was so good
he had to order more. A dessert platter is a great choice but only if the mini taster decides to share.
