THE SHORTMARKET CLUB – TASTING MENU – René Petersen

Having visited shortly after they opened we were eager to head back and see what has changed and what has remained the same. The setup largely remained the same, guess if it aint broke don’t fix it… If I am being honest I do still find it quite dark but I guess that’s the ambiance they going for.

The waiters, host, hostess, chefs and kitchen staff all work together to ensure patrons have a seamless experience and yes they achieved this effortlessly.

Each dish was deliciously from the bread and butter at the start to the dessert, even the coffee was yummy. If I could you some advice if they have the tasting menu on offer rather choose that instead of the a la cart as this way you get to experience more of the dishes and it’s so much more worth your while.

I am happy to report back that even though I still think they need more lighting the food and service remained top notch.
