Now, I know what your thinking… a restaurant in a casino? It wouldn’t be an obvious choice for dinner with the girls thats for sure. However I was recently invited along to try out the new restaurant in the Southamptons Grosvenor Casino along with the Southampton Bloggers. We had an evening of sampling their new menu, cocktails and dabbling on the roulette and black jack tables.
The menu is so diverse and delicious, I really struggled to decide what to have, I could have devoured the whole lot if someone allowed me to…
For a starter, I went for the chicken strips which was accompanied by a rich, smokey BBQ dip. I honestly could not get enough of it. The chicken strips were tender and the coating was bursting with flavour. Perfect size for a starter too.
After changing my mind several times, I decided on a steak for the main course. I can be a bit picky with steak when I go to a restaurant, but can confirm that the Grovsenre have got you covered when it comes to steaks, great selection from rump, sirloin, rib eye and fillet. I opted for the rib-eye with a peppercorn sauce (obviously!) the steak was simply delicious, I just wanted it to go on forever. Paired with the best peppercorn sauce I have ever had the pleasure of eating. This meal was so satisfying. cramed with flavour and cooked to perfection.
Of course, sampling the food means… DESERT! I had to try it all out for review purposes. Again, spoilt for choice, I ended up going for the salted caramel roulade, which was a super luxurious treat… all i can say is, it maybe a moment on the lips a lifetime on the hips, but that moment was worth it.
What is great is that after a fabulous evening meal there is so much variety of entertainment near by, you could spent a few hours drinking cocktails and dabbling on the tables in the casino or just sit at the bar and watch the world go by. Not to mention its situated in the leisure park with odeon not too far and Southampton city centre only a stone throw away if you want to move on to somewhere else after a fabulous meal.
I am already looking forward to going back for another girls night and more delicious food!
