I had been intending to visit Must for some time and eventually booked it after seeing that a friend had thoroughly enjoyed a meal there. I booked online, which was easy to do and was pleasantly surprised with the surroundings when I got there. It was lively, well stocked and welcoming. the seats were a little close together, but had been staggered slightly so that it was still comfortable to leave the table when necessary.
The wine list was extensive and also contained cocktails and mocktails. I chose a glass of the Spanish treixadura which was fruity and delicious.
When bread was provided I asked for olive oil instead of butter and the waiter quickly filled my request.
I chose oysters to start with a lime and cucumber dressing.
My partner chose the chicken liver parfait with Riesling jelly
Both starters were of an excellent standard. the oysters were fresh with a divine dressing, the parfait was light and smooth and flavoursome.
For main I chose the seared Huon Tasmanian salmon with a fennel and orange salad and saffron vinaigrette
My partner chose the Arkady slow cooked lamb shoulder with couscous, fennel puree, tomato confit and olives.
Again both mains were excellent with every ingredient adding value to the overall effect of the dish, definitely fine dining at it’s best.
After the success of the previous courses, we had to make room for desserts, and I chose the cognac chocolate truffle – dark, luscious and supremely chocolatey.
My partner chose the pears with vanilla caramel, spiced gingerbread and cream.
What a wonderful meal and a shame that we hadn’t discovered this wine bar much earlier. We will definitely return – it had the wow factor.
