|Amuse-bouche - Smoked salmon, crême fraîche and icewine grape.|
Meanwhile, though a Chef's Tasting Menu was available, we decided not to chance it in case some of the dishes could not be altered sufficiently to cater to some of our fellow diners' dietary concerns. It's not often that I'm indecisive between choosing several dishes, but on this occasion I couldn't decide between two appetizers and two main courses. Fortunately my waiter was helpful in suggesting one of the main courses, which led me to choose as my appetizer...
|Beef tartare with BBQ chips and honey mustard.|
|Mandarin and carrot sorbet.|
|Qualicum Bay scallops with Jerusalem artichoke, horseradish and double-smoked bacon.|
|Chocolate, Beer and Snacks - Soft dark chocolate, Guiness ice cream, crushed peanuts and pretzels and toffee.|
Courtyard Restaurant provided my family and me a pleasant dinner and enjoyable service, and was a good recommendation by a fellow foodie. My parents definitely enjoyed their meals, and my sister and I certainly didn't mind returning there the next day for lunch with that same food blogger who recommended this place.
Happy Anniversary, Mom and Dad, 30 years and counting!
