23 Oct Georges On Waymouth
Georges On Waymouth is a beautiful fine dining restaurant serving contemporary European food.
The venue is classy and elegant with its minimalistic style, warm wooden floorboards and crisp white table cloths.
Cosmopolitan. Bright pink, sweet and tangy.
Coffin Bay oysters with cabernet sauvignon vinaigrette. The oysters were so large, plump, juicy and fresh. The vinaigrette was light, tangy and really tasty.
Raw scallops with fried baby squid, salmon roe, avocado and apple. The scallops were really soft and delicate and just melted in the mouth.
Veal tartare with hazelnut, white pepper emulsion and bok choy. The veal was very tender and mild in flavour and the hazelnuts added a nice crunch. The dish needed more seasoning but a different and interesting version of tartare that was lovely and clean on the palate which I really liked.
Barbecued octopus with beetroot pesto, squid ink mayo and spring leaves. The octopus had a beautiful barbecued crust that was full of smokey flavour.
House made linguine with South Australian mussels, tomato chilli, balsamic relish, cherry tomatoes, baby spinach and panne fritto. The linguine was magnificently soft with a slightly chewy texture but the dish itself was bland and needed more seasoning. The mussels were quite minuscule and scarce.
Local South Australian snapper with salad of nuts and grains, baked mixed beets and dill yoghurt. The snapper was delightfully moist and flakey but also needed more seasoning while the dill yoghurt was wonderfully creamy and zesty and really made the dish.
300 gram scotch fillet served medium rare with asparagus, shallot and white anchovy. The steak was chewy, dry and a little over cooked but the dish itself had really good flavours.
Chocolate textures with cardamom and blood orange. The chocolate was rich and decadent while the cardamom and orange provided a spicy and citrus contrast. The dish really achieved different and varied textures.
Strawberry with tapioca, attiki honey and lemon myrtle. This dessert was really light and fresh with clean and simple flavours. My favourite out of all 3 desserts.
Warm treacle tart with popcorn ice cream. The treacle filling was rich, thick and sweet while the pastry crust was buttery and crumbly.
Georges On Waymouth serves up dishes that not only taste good but are beautifully plated. Each dish was just stunning and the attention and detail in all their dishes really shows.
