The Conservatory – April ’19

Cellars-Hohenort Hotel is one of our favourite places to visit, we love both The Greenhouse and The Conservatory previously. This time round we would be “Dining in the treetops” again.

The staff are always very welcoming and even on a rainy autumn evening the establishment was warm and welcoming. Service was exemplary as expected from all establishments in the Liz Mc Grath Collection.

The Autumn Lavash was some welcome respite from the normal bread course, don’t get me wrong I love the bread course, but after having a bread course for every meal since the 18th of April one needs a break…

Being three diners, we were able to sample every dish from the menu and believe me it was worth it, and I opted for the Vegetarian Option.

That Cheese Souffle was probably one of the best, we all agreed the portion was just right for the rich dishes which were to come.

Starters were amazing the Calamari seems to be the winner though.

Mains the beef fillet was cooked to perfection.

The Lemon and Mint sorbet wasn’t my thing, but I kept going back and before I knew it, I had finished it, so much for it not bring my thing.

We all chose the Flourless Cake, yummy.

As usual they didn’t disappoint, we were feed and happy!
