Green Herring Restaurant – Gold Creek

Standard

Having heard plenty of good feedback about the Green Herring Restaurant and it’s lovely open fire it was a good spot to head on a Saturday night in the middle of a Canberra winter. The duo of dips with bread $5, was a good nibble to have with wine ($9 corkage), but the accompanying thin garlic toasts were a bit too salty. I preferred the look of the cob loaf that went past (also $5). The steak was tender, tasty and well sized, but quite pricey at $38. The Venison was a smaller serve (also $38). The table next to us shared the dessert platter for two ($32), and it had interesting accompaniments along with the individual apple pie, chocolate spring rolls, brulee and steamed pudding. It could easily be shared between 4 people as it’s large and there are really four desserts on the plate. The fire was impressive, but a bit too warm. Service was efficient and included a surprise of complimentary chocolates. 20140721-072507-26707958.jpg   20140721-072506-26706616.jpg
