The immediate area surrounding the hotel offered an expansive choice of cafes, restaurants and pubs and we dropped in on a few; however we were up the hill (way up) from the lake front and we wanted to check out what the lakefront had to offer in the way of places to eat and drink.
We took a taxi from the hotel to the café and before we had travelled even halfway we both acknowledged that the decision to take a taxi instead of walking, which we had foolishly considered, was one of the best ideas of the day; yes it was that far.
A short time later while enjoying the view and the exceptional company of my wife a staff member approached the table with a small dish containing a single spoon, holding steak tartar, propped on a very small stylish support making for an elegant presentation.
Out of the countless restaurants that I have ordered steak tartar this is the first time that I have been offered a taste and asked if I desired any change prior to serving my meal. This particular dish rates in my top five servings of steak tartar and as I alluded to previously I have eaten steak tartar in many restaurants in a number of countries so as you can see I was thoroughly impressed with the dish.
After eating we walked along the lake shore and the vistas were amazing. People were everywhere enjoying the beautiful day and if you’re ever in this area don’t miss the opportunity to be one these people living life large.
