The Terrace Hotel, Perth CBD

Luxury hotel, modern Australian dining and a Bar – all situated at a historic location right in the middle of the Perth CBD.

The food experience was complimented by beautifully prepared produce and a ‘well-taken-care of’ service by the wait-staff.

Mains for the night included:

Amelia Park rib eye, wild mushroom ragout, ricotta gnocchi, slow roasted vine cherry tomatoes, watercress butter, bone marrow jus - $40

Rib-eye was ordered to a Medium – meat was still tender, soft, slightly pink and tasty. Watercress butter enhanced the steak and the mushroom ragout was deliciously buttery and mushroom-y. Gripes would be the tomatoes – slightly cold inside and the ricotta gnocchi wasn’t very ricotta to me.

The best friend had:

Five spice duck breast, seared scallop, fondant potato, spinach, duck jus - $40

I had a little bit of the duck – very tasty and well-cooked indeed. Scallops was cooked right as well. Not a fan of the fondant potato though.

And we could never say no to a good dessert menu.

I had:

Rhubarb & ginger mille feuille, green apple sorbet - $16

Light, fluffy pastry in a good, many layers of rhubarb and ginger. What I liked, the ginger was not over-powering yet I could taste it in there somewhere and the dessert was refreshing because of the green apple sorbet. But, in the end, the sorbet and rhubarb together became too sour.

Best friend’s:

Mango & passionfruit parfait, rice pudding and crispy chocolate ganache wonton - $16

Loved the parfait as it wasn’t over-sweet and tasted just right. The friend wasn’t too keen on the chocolate wonton though.

Service was excellent, not pushy and very helpful. Ambience was nice as I had requested a quiet table indoors in my booking. I was delighted with the very comfy leather corner seat. The outdoors and bar area was a whole different story as it was crowded (and noisy!) with the after-work crowd looking for drinks.

Overall, a good dining experience and great place for a heart-to-heart catchup session.
