Our first visit to Simon’s Restaurant was indeed a pleasure. We chose this as the 1st for our Restaurant Week experience and it was certainly a good choice. Groot Constantia certainly lives up to its name, in all aspects.
For Restaurant Week they have 2 offers either Lunch or Dinner.
Lunch (choose 2 for R 95.00)
Chicken Liver Parfait
Or Salmon Fish Cake
Dinner (choose 3 for R 175.00)
Creamy Blue Cheese and Broccoli Soup
Salt & Pepper Fried Calamari
Slow braised Lamb Shoulder
Pan Fried Line Fish
½ Mozambican Chicken
Salted Caramel Panna Cotta
They are so accommodative and we could order from their Daily Specials as well as the A la Carte Menu.
We tried dishes from all three options and we were not disappointed.
These were the choices we made:
Restaurant Week Menu:
Starter – Creamy Blue Cheese and Broccoli Soup – delicious and moreish.
Main – Slow braised Lamb Shoulder –succulent and melt in your mouth.
Dessert – Cheesecake Mousseline – not too sweet, perfect ending to the Restaurant Week Menu.
A la Carte Menu:
Starter – Fresh Black Mussels creamy white wine and herb sauce – one of the best sauces and they don’t skimp on their mussels either.
Starter – Spicy Mozambican Prawns with toasted bread – Authentic Mozambican Spice. Not for the faint hearted, but so heavenly you can’t resist.
Mains – Slow Braised Pork Belly creamed potato with a smoky jus – Smokey jus and the Pork Belly perfectly cooked.
Daily Special Menu:
Starter – Chorizo & Calamari – Dish of the night, just the right amount of spiciness from the Chorizo brought out the best of the calamari.
Mains – Eisebein & Creamy, Garlic Mash – Literally fell apart, tastes of Christmas, loved this one too.
We really enjoyed our first night at Simon’s Restaurant; we loved the relaxed atmosphere, excellent service and delicious food.
We will be back for sure!
