Restaurant Review: Bistro 1800

Restaurant Review: Bistro 1800

10 February 2014

What better way to start the weekend, than with a fine dining experience at Bistro 1800 restaurant situated in the beautiful Cape Royale Luxury Hotel and Spa. Last Friday night Ritza and I was invited to see what this restaurant is all about and experience the incredible food and menu they had to offer and I  must say it was nothing short of amazing! 

For me, a dinner always start off with a good glass of red wine and to accompany it, we were served homebaked bread and bread sticks to wake up our tastebuds!

When reviewing a restaurant, I always prefer the most popular dishes on the menu or of course the special menu of the evening to be my dish of choice and for starters I had the pan fried kingklip with cashew nut and lemongrass pureé, shredded Asian salad and coconut-lime foam. They always say you eat with your eyes and this dish was beautifully presented with fresh flavours that are perfect for summer.

While enjoying our meal, Chef Bevan Webb of Bistro 1800 surprised us by taking the mic and singing as entertainment for the evening. After chatting to him later, he told us that as a chef he can only satisfy 4 of the 5 senses and that is why he added singing to his dining experience for his guests, so he can satisfy all 5 your senses! What a talented man!

Mains were an easy choice for me as Bistro 1800 is known for their incredible flame grilled steak and mine was the special of the evening served with wild mushrooms,camembert cheese, green salad and cous-cous. The steak was cooked to perfection and it was an interesting combination of flavours with the cheese and the meat.

Ritza had the twice cooked Pork Belly with apple parsnip pureé, bacon and peach chutney with crackling and a micro herb salad. Besides the fact that it was presented perfectly, it was the best pork I have ever tasted and the crunchy crackling just sold me completely on this dish

Dessert is always my favourite part of any meal and with all the fantastic options Bistro 1800  has to offer - the choice was difficult! But they even have a solution for that! The dessert menu has a option for you to try every dessert on the menu in small portions! Unfortunately my stomache did not allow for that, so I went for a lighter option - a white chocolate and kiwi semifreddo which is kiwi coulis wrapped in in white chocolate, strawberry carpaccio, lychee sorbet and kiwi gel. It is the perfect ending to a meal and gorgeous on a plate.

Ritza loves chocolate and according to her, the Chocolate Bomb at Bistro 1800  is the best in town! With a gooey chocolate fondant, chocolate soil and vanilla bean ice-cream - you cannot go wrong!
