Adelaide Eats: D’artagnan

Saturday night date with the housemates. An excuse to dress up, have dinner at a fancy restaurant and then proceed to end the night off on a sweet note with dessert. So the fancy dinner part saw us paying a visit to D’artagnan- a very pretty and cosy French restaurant in North Adelaide and a dimly lit too one if I might add..  But somehow the three of us still felt sort of like fish out of the water because laughing or talking loudly seemed inappropriate in such a place. So when dessert time came, it was an unanimous decision to move across the road to Chocolatree instead of ordering it here because we really wanted to just ‘let loose’ and enjoy ourselves without feeling too self-conscious.

Pan roasted orange glazed duck breast $16- with parsnip purée, brandy sauce, witlof and hazelnut salad

Oven roasted Tasmanian salmon $34- with poached Moreton Bay bug tail, brussels sprouts, confit fennel, salmon roe and light bisque

Pan fried kingfish $32- served with cannellini beans and seafood cassoulet, asparagus and baby herb salad

Oven roasted beef fillet $34- with braised beef cheeks, potato gratin, baby spinach, glazed shallots and horseradish gremolata 

Dont get me wrong, we could not find any fault with the food and the service was impeccable as well. But perhaps Im just not used to the concept of fine dining yet. It seems a little all too stiff and uncomfortable for my liking. I still prefer the rowdy family restaurants where the atmosphere feels a tad more chilled,
