Restaurant Review of the Month - JULY
GARIBALDI, H. Park Club
Garibaldi, H. Park Club is a restaurant which no discerning diner should miss. It is not the cheapest restaurant in town but the quality of food and the general ambience are well above the level of most other establishments in the neighbourhood.
This restaurant exudes class. The tables are large, well-appointed and there’s plenty of space between them. The waiting staff are well-presented and always just an eyebrow raise away. The décor is modern and bright without being garish. Wi-Fi is available and there’s a taxi rank right outside.
A good range of Spanish wines is on offer with some excellent choices from France and Italy, too, including champagnes. We chose a crianza and were not disappointed.
The menu, too, is extensive and includes lots of Italian choices, several Spanish favourites and the expected steaks and pork dishes. The sea-food is a speciality here, offering fresh lobster, locally caught fish and a wide range of other ‘fruites de mer’.
Children and vegetarians are well catered for, too. And, with a wide range of salads, everyone should be able to enjoy a fine dining experience.
Our starters arrived only a few minutes after we had ordered and we ate to the accompaniment of the lounge pianist, who plays every night of the week.
My main course, chosen from an impressive list, was the Black and White, a combination of fillet of pork and fillet mignon steak served with sauce Béarnaise, port, asparagus and king prawn. A side dish of Canarian potatoes completed the presentation. My wife had the house speciality of chicken breast with zucchini, smoked salmon baked with feta cheese, served with a Marsala sauce. Excellent quality, great presentation and cooked just as we had ordered.
The restaurant was filling up as we left and booking is advised. Be prepared to enjoy yourself!
