THE SIMPLE THINGS
In Casino Royale,James Bond’s dinner companion asks him,
“Isn’t it shameless to be so certain and so expensive?”
This after ordering caviar,rognons de veau, pommes soufflees and fraises des bois.
“It’s a virtue,” says the high living spy, “and anyway, it’s good plain wholesome food.”
We agree fully with Bond; the best and most luxurious things in life are the pure and simple things. We endorse good taste rather than opulence and extravagance. We chose classical recipes from various cuisines, including of course Goan and other Indian cuisines.
The emphasis is on quality of ingredients and consistency, and of course we do exploit our natural bounty of fresh seafood, vegetables and fruits. And evening style with full table silverware, damask linen, candles etc.
And no, we are not too expensive.
The beautiful old Portuguese house now houses the Green Fairy Absinthe cocktail bar, and around it are the long verandahs, with dining tables looking out over the soul soothing, romantic garden setting. For that special occasion, indulge in our full silver service Champagne Breakfast for Two!
