What a wonderful and glorious day again dining with Yvonne, Jeanne and their little prince n princess. Unfortunately Renie, another "kaki makan" can't make it. But today we have another new "kaki", that is Philip, my husband. He is able to join us for lunch because the restaurant is just located above his offiice. What coincident! Our target today is C Restaurant, located at the top of St. Martin's Tower has truly become one of Perth's most iconic places to dine in luxury.
Currently, till November, the C restaurant is having a promotion for lunches Monday to Friday where the patron is able to select from one to three meals that they offer and 'Pay what they think it is worth'. Thus we are here today to dine at the top of Perth in a constant 360 degree revolution.
I had my first experienced years ago in 'M' Revolving Restaurant (Meritus Mandarin Singapore). In Perth, This is my first attempt. I have always imagined the classy and romantic settings in the restaurant. Two people sitting at a table, holding hands, face towards the high window, enjoy a panoramic view without leaving their seats with fragrant of wine lingering at the tip of the tongue. But... come back to reality, food is still my main concern.
We had a 3 course meal, the entree, main and ends with dessert. I and Yvonne have the same entree and main. And both of us were satisfied with it. (The entree is Grilled Exmouth prawns, garlic and herb butter, potato saffron pave with tomatoand fennel concasse and main is Crispy skinned saltwater Barramundi fillet, caponata vegetables, lemon basil aioli ). While Phil and Jeanne have the same entree, Brown sugar and lime cured salmon, avocado carpaccio with a blood orange and basil vinaigrette. Phil choose Pork sirloin as main and Jeanne took smoked lamb shoulder as her main. The dessert was fantastic in their outlook but taste too sweet for me.
Overall, I am happy with the food today but not the service. The bill then came out to be $180.00. Well, thanks God for this 'pay what you think it is worth' promotion. In the end, Phil had decided to pay $100 for it. The stunning and magnificant views of Perth really worth the amounts :)
