WHY GO

For a full- on, un­for­get­table French din­ing ex­pe­ri­ence com­ple­mented by an ex­tra­or­di­nary wine list, one can’t go wrong with Lafite.

A starter of lightly grilled oc­to­pus gar­nished with a dol­lop of corn cream, gourmet red pep­pers from Espelette and black gar­lic makes for a mem­o­rable opener, largely due to its in­spired plat­ing style which draws in­spi­ra­tion from the ‘splat­ter­ist’ school of de­con­struc­tion.

The Wagyu ten­der­loin main sees the meat be­ing cooked as re­quested to en­sure its rich flavour is re­tained while the sub­tle Sarawak pep­per sauce en­hances its taste.

It's worth fol­low­ing the French tra­di­tion and order a cheese plat­ter be­fore dessert as the five por­tions of ar­ti­sanal cheeses from Brit­tany are ex­cel­lent.

Dessert is just four en­tries, with the madeleine and pas­sion­fruit ice cream stand­ing out from three oth­ers con­sist­ing of a choco­late dish, braised pineap­ple and car­rot cake. While gen­er­ous in por­tion size, the rather bland madeleine does go very well with the de­li­ciously tart pas­sion­fruit ice cream.
