C Restaurant is Perth’s only revolving restaurant. It is 33 stories up and has amazing and sweeping views of the city.
The restaurant was built in the early 80s and has changed its names, management and chefs many, many times. Understandably, with each changeover, the owners have tried to do something different, reach a different clientele, bring in a new eating concept and new menus download the website structure. So over the years, I have heard many different reviews and conflicting opinions about the place – and I’m sure everyone who has lived in Perth feels the same!
I was invited to try out the new midweek menu, and took the opportunity to have a date night with my husband!
I have previously been to C Restaurant for dinner (about 10 years ago) and for a fashion show (3 years ago). I was very keen to put aside all the reviews I’ve heard, come to it with fresh eyes (and taste buds), and just have a lovely evening with my husband download fairytale audiobooks for free.
We enjoyed a 4 course meal from the Midweek Summer Menu at $99 per person, available Monday-Thursday only. However on the website, I notice that it is now 3 courses for $99.
We arrived at 6:30pm and the view was AMAZING!
When I was here the previous two times, it was winter time, and so it was already dark. I can honestly say that I’ve never seen Perth like this before download icloud all photos at once!
Perhaps it was because my husband and I grew up in Perth, we’ve lived here for years, we know all the landmarks and all the areas… to be able to see everything in one sweeping view was just incredible!
It was SO enjoyable to talk about the places, the river, the parks, the buildings, the history and recollect all the events and happenings that have taken place in the city. Then to be able to see everything cast in a golden light from the setting sun, was just so cool! My husband and I talked so much that we were a bit slow to order our food download microsoft office with code.
First up were my oysters. My husband is allergic to oysters, so I take every opportunity to eat them when we’re out!
Natural, fresh, creamy, soft… oh my, these were heavenly. I haven’t had good oysters in ages. I was veeeery happy.
My husband ordered the goat cheese panna cotta with vinegar glazed beetroot, fig gel, golden beetroot, apple jelly and roasted pecan nuts windows 10 bei microsoft kostenlos downloaden.
I was quite impressed with this dish. There was such a fun mixture of flavours and textures – sweet, tangy, soft, crunchy, salty, gooey. I took a few spoonfuls, and wanted to have more. But I was annoyed that I couldn’t swap dishes with him, because of that pesky allergy!
The restaurant takes 90 minutes to do one revolution. When you look outside, you can’t really tell that you’re moving.
But when you measure the distance between a window frame and your wine glass, you can see that the floor (and chairs and table) are sloooooowly moving herunterladen.
I am – famously – very sensitive to motion sickness, but I didn’t get any head spinning sensations throughout the evening. Phew.
For the next course, I had the 36 hour pork belly with a celeriac purée, apple & rhubarb chutney, chorizo crumb and a calvados jus.
Again I was impressed. The pork was soft, juicy and succulent. The crackling was very satisfactory. All the flavours went so well together. It was delicious herunterladen von aktualisierungen nicht möglich failed to refresh cache!
My husband had the slow braised spring lamb shoulder roulade with minted pea purée, parmesan custard, cumin foam and ham crisp.
Although I liked the flavours, I didn’t enjoy the texture of the lamb roulade (a kind of roll). It was more of a soft lamb patty?
The sun was setting and the lights of the city started to twinkle. My husband and I talked and talked about the landscape and view around us.
The waitstaff were lovely and friendly. They could see we were talking, and guessed that we were a bit full after that last course, so they offered to hold back the next course for a bit ö3 radio. They didn’t hurry us and they did not give any indication of being bored, irritated, or impatient with us.
In the end, the timing of the courses was perfect.
We followed through with a Huon Valley Tasmanian salmon dish and a Char-grilled Pitch Black Angus beef tenderloin dish.
These dishes lacked a bit of WOW – but then perhaps I was being too fussy? They were both nicely presented and were enjoyable to eat.
And lastly I had a milk chocolate and passion fruit tart, and since my husband doesn’t eat sugar, I ordered a meringue too.
Again, the demanding “foodie blogger” part of me was hoping for some earth shattering, culinary revelation – so I admit that the desserts lacked a flavoursome punch I was hoping for. However the sweetness and fruity tangs adequately rounded off my palate, and the presentation was faultless.
In conclusion, I think everyone who lives in Perth should try the C Restaurant at least once, for a special occasion!
Yes it’s pretty expensive at $99 per person (not including wines). The meal was enjoyable (perhaps a little bit hit and miss), the waitstaff were outstanding, and the atmosphere was lovely. Over all it was a great experience.
The spectacular view was definitely the best bit. The fact that it changed throughout the evening, added a whole new level of entertainment and dynamic conversations to the evening. It was just fantastic!
Next time, I would definitely time my arrival a bit earlier, to get the most of the view and the sunset.
Also I don’t think that I needed a 4th course. I was really full and would have been happy with just the 3 courses.
C Restuarant also offers a more affordable set lunch menu ($55 per person) or high tea ($44 per person).
