Advice: Reservations are a must.
This is one of those classic restaurants that has been on the scene for many years, I first dined here well over 15 years ago and it hasn’t changed much. The menu is classic French and many of the dishes have been on the menu for years, some would say why change a good thing if it works. You’ll always see beautiful fresh flowers in the dining room which adds a fine touch to your dining experience. For my latest visit, Chef Lina Cashetto joined me for lunch and we were served a complimentary mini onion tart to warm our taste buds.
I had the ‘le Crocodile Classic’ Tomato & Gin Soup ($5.50) that was rich and delicious, followed by the Mixed Grill of Halibut, Prawns ($18) Wild Salmon with squid ink linguine. Lina had the house pasta creation of the day.
At the end of the meal we were served their classic Crocodile Chocolates that are made for them by local chocolatier Daniel Chocolates. Chef/Owner Michel Jacob runs a tight ship so to speak, offering traditional French cooking and a classic dining experience that hasn’t changed much over the years!
