I chose Harbourside Grill to spend Christmas lunch this year! With all the dining restrictions in place, lunch was the best we could do. It was a great choice, the dining room is surrounded by windows so it was lovely to eat with so much natural lighting. For Christmas, they had a set lunch for $448 per person. There were 3 starters to share, a main course each and 2 desserts to share too. I love bread baskets! This one had 2 brioche and a baguette, served with butter. Nothing too special but co

I love bread baskets! This one had 2 brioche and a baguette, served with butter. Nothing too special but complimentary bread always makes me happy!

To start was this smoked salmon dish. The smoked salmon was filled with cream cheese and placed on top of the beetroots. Also accompanying was a soft boiled quail egg with caviar on top. The elements were pretty good, but because everything was so separated, it was hard to eat together (I'm not even sure it was supposed to be eaten together?). The quail egg was perfectly soft-boiled but I wish there was a bit more caviar on the plate because I couldn't really taste it. Smoked salmon is always such a strong flavour such that it often overpowers the more subtle flavours.

The next starter to come was the foie gras and quince dish. The piece of foie gras was cooked perfectly and really yummy! I didn't have the duck leg but it was wrapped inside a pastry and fried, my bf enjoyed it but said it was a little dry. Quince isn't something I've ever had before but I felt like it went with the foie gras really well.

This is also my first time trying Jerusalem artichokes but I don't think I am a fan (it's a unique taste that I haven't gotten accustomed to). Overall the veggies and quinoa were quite nice, all cooked nicely. I think it could have a dressing to go with it as it ate a bit dry and was lacking an underlying flavour.

Then came the mains, I got this seabass dish. I was quite surprised by how much I enjoyed this! The foamy bisque had a punchy lobster flavour and went really well with the potatoes (which is sitting under the fish). The fish was cooked quite nicely too and there was also a tiny piece of lobster tail on top (if only it was bigger!).

The other main we got was the vegetarian quiche dish. Definitely quite far off the kinds of quiches I'm normally used to, but I really enjoyed how delicate this tart was. The tart shell was thin and crisp, and the medley of vegetables on top complimented the tart really nicely. Overall, really well constructed but I wish I could taste the Comte Cheese! I couldn't tell it was even in there to be honest, and I LOVE Comte.

This was probably the highlight of the meal -- dessert! As their signature dish, I had really high expectations for this and it absolutely didn't disappoint. It definitely tastes as good as it looks. The apples were perfectly tender but still holding together, the caramel wasn't too sweet and the tart pastry was really delicious (esp after it had absorbed all that caramel!). I would honestly just come back to eat the apple tart, but would just order a whole one for myself. 10/10 would recommend 💯💯💯

Again, I had a problem with locating the ingredient listed on the menu, I really didn't know where the chestnut was. But nevertheless, this was also a super tasty dessert! I especially loved the salted caramel ice cream, which had a deep caramel flavour with just the right amount of salt. The chocolate delice was also really great, it was rich, creamy and really chocolatey, it was a hefty sized portion too!😍

We also ordered 2 lattes to accompany the dessert and to round off the meal, it came with 2 pieces of fudge with smoked salt -- love! 💕

Overall, a really great meal at Harbourside Grill. I liked that the dining room felt really open due to the windows (even though the blinds were down as it was quite sunny!). My personal take is that the desserts stole the show -- I am obsessed with that apple tart tatin, I can't wait to eat it again! The salted caramel ice cream on that chocolate delice was pretty unforgettable too. As for the savoury food, I think because I don't eat meat, I can't really enjoy the 'grill' element of this restaurant, so I can't make a fair judgement. This place is worth a try for a nice meal, but definitely don't skip dessert! 😌
