If you’re after a good French meal in a posh setting, minus the snob factor, then we strongly suggest giving Brasserie WOLF a go. This bistro from the Esmirada Group of Restaurants has just the right relaxed vibe and its prime locale along Robertson Quay makes for some very decent people watching opportunities. But that’s the extras. It’s the comforting classics care of head chef Claudio Sandri, a walk-in wine cellar, well-stocked bar and attentive waitstaff that’ll keep you coming back time and again.
This offering from the Esmirada Group of Restaurants, French eatery Brasserie Wolf boasts a posh décor and ambience, but without the snob. It achieves this by having friendly staff that dish out a few jokes now and then, and placing tables closer to one another as compared to most fine dining outlets. A well-stocked bar at the side and a walk-in wine cellar in the corner suggest you’ll leave a happy person. We started off our meal with the traditional French onion soup with comte cheese. It comes piping hot, with chunks of bread thrown in. Watch out though, for this appetizer is very filling and every sip only makes you want it more. The burgundy snails were chewy and prepared with garlic and butter. Although fairly average, we think it definitely tasted better while hot. For the main course, we tried one of the more popular dishes–the honey baked duck breast with pieces of poached peach. We got it cooked medium well. The duck slices were slightly tough, but juicy, and a safe bet if you’re looking for something tantalizing and light. Rounding up our meal were three choux buns filled with vanilla ice-cream and topped with chocolate sauce. We highly recommended this very yummy dessert as it didn’t disappoint; and in fact, it earned our thumbs-up.
