Pomegranate, Kingston – trying the Banquet Menu

Ever since I noticed Pomegrante’s Banquet menu, it’s been on my Wishlist to try.

It wasn’t perfect timing – I’d not long finished an amazing lunch – but I couldn’t let that deter me.

Having said that, it could have been a lacklustre appetite, the lack of good lighting, or my determination not to be too annoying to my friends, but I do have to apologise up front for the following severely sub-standard photos.

Please do use a little imagination and know that my pics don’t do justice to the quality or presentation of the dishes.

Our $62 per person banquet began with

Chilli, humus and eggplant dips with bread and assorted olives

We finished with dessert which was my highlight of the meal – a delicious…

Everyone enjoyed what they’d ordered.

But I think, as the standout for me were the seafood and fish dishes and the desserts, next time I’d skip the banquet (great value that it is) and order a la carte.

Lovely decor and excellent service.
