Last Sunday me and hubby dropped the little one off and ventured into London for a meal at Maze Gordon Ramsay in Mayfair London. We booked via Bookatable Star Deal, this is part of their Counter Dining campaign! Since it was a Sunday evening we booked an early meal at 6.30pm to make sure it wasn't a late one...nothing worse than waking up on a Monday morning shattered. The restaurant had relaxed lighting so it was actually very difficult to take photos and I ended up having to use the light on my phone shining onto each of the dish and used my camera to take photos so the lighting was bright enough! Anyway I managed to capture mostly everything to share with you all.
We were quickly shown to our table in nice quiet corner of the restaurant and looked through both the star menu to see what was on offer this evening and had a quick browse through the A La Carte menu also. While waiting for our starters we sipped our refreshing Maze Martini! For starters we decided to order one of each the Burrata which is basil pesto and wood sorrel. The burrata is fresh Italian cheese made from mozzarella and cream so it was so so creamy it just melted in your mouth. The other option was tuna tartare roll with avocado and sesame. I love how the tartare is put on top of the roll and it was a good size portion.
For mains I picked Roasted cod with runner beans and dashi butter. The cod was nice and crispy on top and the dashi butter was so creamy, quite a heavy dish so the portion size was actually just right. Beef belly was the other option served with heritage carrots, peanut and coriander. The beef was very tender, even with the portion looking rather small it was actually very filling. Each time a course is served the waiter would explain the dish which was lovely and he kept our drinks topped up and when one of the waiters saw hubby top up his drink he rushed over quickly to help and needless to say service was faultless rest of the evening.
Desert white chocolate mousse with cherries and aerated chocolate and a simple strawberry tartlet with elderflower and vanilla. Obviously we shared but I wasn't particularly keen on the chocolate and much preferred the tartlet which was unusual of me. If it wasn't a Sunday night we would have stayed for an extra drink but sadly that was the end of our 3 course meal.
For £30 each it was certainly great value indeed however having looked through their A La Carte menu which offered scallop ceviche, king crab, foie gras and black cod it's certainly a place to head back for that special occasion.
