Spoil your sweetheart on Valentine’s Day with a romantic four-course dinner for two, courtesy of Captain Cook’s Cove restaurant.
A choice between Oyster Bay Sparkling Cuvee and Sparkling Cuvee Brut wines on arrival sets the tone for a lush menu that begins with a selection of two well-presented entrées of freshly prepared cold or hot seafood platters to share.
Prahbat Dua, Captain Cook’s Cove executive sous chef said his team takes great pride in catering to the needs of all their guests.
‘‘We like to ensure all tastebuds are tantalised: get it right once and we hope to welcome them back again,’’ Mr Dua said.
‘‘However cliché it might be, you can never go past these natural aphrodisiacs, especially on Valentine’s Day.’’
The main courses of grilled beef tenderloin glazed amply with green peppercorn sauce and baked chicken breast supreme with port wine jus are both complimented with warm potato salad and asparagus. Assistant food and beverage operations manager Todd Neesam said the establishment was offering value for money for the four-course menu at $75 per head.
‘‘While some restaurants tend to overplay the evening and mark up their prices, we pride ourselves with offering fresh produce and impeccable service,’’ he said.
‘‘We’d like to think that when love is in the air, we are here to make the evening memorable.’’
Finally, the specially created dessert menu is served with complimentary glasses of dessert wine and chocolates.
You and your beloved can choose from either the chef’s dessert assiette or a dessert tasting platter thanks to the Cove’s artistic pastry chef.
‘‘It is the detail that people remember,’’ Mr Neesam said.
‘‘We are committed to creating a romantic ambience for our guests’ experience on Valentine’s Day.
‘‘There are certainly no oversights for the occasion, which is a testament of why we have so many regular guests booking in with us again.’’
Lovebirds can enjoy a candlelit dinner from a tailored menu in ambient surroundings that include a complimentary rose for the ladies.
