The Atlantic, Southbank

·         Spaghetti of Grilled Capsicum and Eggplant – basil, olives, Napoli sacue, toasted brioche crumbs ($33.00)
·         Pan-fried Hapuka Fillets – celeriac, snow peas, pipis, shallot, garlic, parsley, and clam essence ($45.00)

·         Cinnamon Panna Cotta – mandarin ‘three-ways’, meringue, Moscato sorbet ($22.00)

It was a cold night so I decided to have a comforting dish, the ‘Braised Wagyu Beef Cheek – ragout of autumn mushrooms, baby onions braised in port wine, celeriac purée, sauce bordelaise ($45.00)’. The beef pulled away easily with my fork and was delicious. The onions added sweetness to the dish and the sauce was exceptional. The celeriac purée was gorgeous, but would have loved to see more generosity of this element on the dish.  

My dining companion opted for a seafood dish, ‘The Atlantic Beer Battered Fish and Chips – russet Burbank chips, lemon, tartare sauce ($38.00)’. Inside the cone was a bounty of crunchy chips and two succulent fillets of fish. The tartare sauce was marvellous with a good hit of acidity.

We started the night with some cocktails… I chose the ‘Strawberry Caipirovska – Absolut Vodka, Monin strawberry shaken with fresh strawberries, lime and sugar ($20.00)’. My dining companion picked the ‘Passionfruit Mojito – Havana Club 3 year Rum, with an explosion of passionfruit and mint, soda water ($24.00).

For date night, we dined at The Atlantic, which is part of the Crown Entertainment Complex at Southbank. Executive Chef, Donovan Cooke, has created a fine dining, seafood restaurant that is perfect for a romantic night with your loved one. Although the restaurant focuses on jewels of the ocean, there are plenty of options for vegetarians and carnivores too. A wonderful place to dine in Southbank…
