[invite] Bianca: French dining at Quay West Suites, Quartier in the heart of the rocks. With a warm and inviting dining space, with plush lounges if you feel like indulging in items from the bar menu. Or head to the main dining area for the full a la carte menu.
The menu is geared towards classic French cuisine. Service is friendly and unobtrusive.
Beginning our meal with the Charcuterie Board – Salami, prosciutto, mortadella served with Onion Jam & Brioche $32. Undoubtedly delicious and an excellent grazing board but I did feel the serving size could have been more generous for the price. And a small gripe but I don’t believe it was served with brioche, it appeared to be slices of sourdough.
Grilled King Prawns -w/ Garlic Butter $19 were juicy, well seasoned and full of flavour. I’ll admit, I ate the whole thing to myself!
We went for the classics. The Steak Frites – 200g Rangers Valley black Angus eye fillet $39. Cooked perfectly, my dining companion opting for a medium cooked steak. A thin
The Char-Grilled Chicken Breast -w/ Cafe de Paris butter & pomme frites $32 was equally tasty. The chicken moist and juicy, I just would have loved more butter.
Dessert was definitely the highlight. The classic Tarte Tatin -w/ caramel ice-cream $12 a real winner. Flaky, buttery pastry with the cinnamon apple, just a divine combination. All tied together by the caramel ice-cream. This was probably my favourite dish of the night.
And to finish, De-constructed Mud Brownies -w/ vanilla ice-cream & mixed berry compote syringe $16. Decadent and rich, we loved the playful element of the berry syringe, as well as adding a contrasting tart element.
There were some hit and miss dishes and prices are on the higher end of the scale but Quartier still reminds a good option if you’re in the Rocks.
