\"A place to talk, drink and share the pleasures of the table...\"
Lake House shows no sign of waning as it celebrates its 30th year. Alla Wolf-Tasker\'s restaurant has lost none of its charm or dressed-up country ambience, and the cooking remains as finely tuned and ambitious as ever. Local pig appears as a disc of juicy meat with crisp skin revved up by fried morcilla and a tangy chorizo dressing. Sashimi kingfish and spanner crab are given a verdant lift with dabs of green gazpacho dressing, fried jalapeno rings and nasturtium leaves. Wild rabbit appears as a parsley-crusted loin with a rich cassoulet and a cotechino salad. All is dispensed by a highly skilled wait-staff, while sommeliers work magic with the outstanding wine list. The menu\'s welcome message aptly sums up Lake House\'s goals: \"A place to talk, drink and share the pleasures of the table. Fine dining with its top button undone.\"
