Travelling up the Wild Atlantic Way, Mom and I wanted to explore more of the food our country had to offer.
And so we headed to Sage in Westport, a recommendation we got on Twitter!
I began with a glass noodle salad with seafood (including smoked eel) and with a fun crunch and soft fish, I was in heaven. We were off to a good start.
For mains, Mom selected grilled turbot, lobster and brown prawn butter, and I chose to have a surf and turf (pork belly and scallops). We were utterly “wowed”. A dazzling array of flavours, we marvelled at how the restaurant got it all so right.
Dessert was Mille Fueille with pistachio and chocolate and I chose a baklava with orange. Quite simply a joy.
Every bite was a treat, every bite was a different experience. We couldn’t get over how tasty the food was and how creative too.
Completing the meal, we were given apple schnapps with petit fours. A delightful end to an astonishingly great meal and welcoming staff bursting with energy.
The total came to €95.50 but it was undoubtedly one of the best, if not the best, meal that I’ve had in 2016.
Come again? YES.
