Another weekend has gone by and I have been eating out again. This time it was Sunday Lunch at Restaurant Christophers in Mar Azul. Their ambition and motto is “Fine Dining” so they had to live up to that, which usually is a good way to set me up for disappointment. Not so at Christophers… First of all I have to say the service by all members of staff (they have quite a lot of personnel there) was prompt and cheerful, which I appreciate. I cannot stand being served by miserable waiting staff, but at Christophers there was no sign of misery. Also it was good to see the place bustling with customers, actually you should reserve a table to avoid disappointment.
The ample choice of starters is an extract of the weeks menu and we choose peeled thai prawns and soup of the day, which was cauliflower and blue cheese. Both were delicious. We had the house white wine, which was nicely chilled and medium dry. Also we ordered sparkling water. It came in a 1.5 l bottle and saw us through the whole meal. That was another plus point as it was a hot day. For main courses we sampled the lamb and the chicken. Both were very tender. Veg of the day were cauliflower, broccoli and carrots, all of very healthy color and not overcooked as I have seen it in many other places before. The gravy was very tasty and I could not detect the taste of bisto in it. The only thing I have to remark is that it was not the largest of Sunday Dinners. It was however enough to fill me up and leave room for the choice of 8 home-made desserts. They all sounded mouthwatering but we decided to try the lemon merenge pie and the cadbury delight chocolate cheesecake. The pie was excellent, neither to sweet nor to sour but the cheesecake was divine. If you like chocolate like I do, it is worth visiting just for that. All in all a perfect sunday lunch, thank you very much Restaurante Christopher. We will be back to check out the week menu which was a promising thing to read…
