Wooden Spoon Bar and Restaurant in Cremorne. The Hubby's Mum had got us a Red Balloon voucher for their 5 course degustation meal for Christmas so we figured Valentine's Day was the ideal time to use it.
We arrived at the restaurant and we greeted by the server (who I believe is also the owner) who showed us to a table in their stunning inside courtyard area as there was a party going on inside. She remembered that my mother in law had bought us the voucher so she bought us the degustation menu (which she left with us so we can see the elements in each dish) and a glass each of complementary champagne and took our drinks order.
She returned pretty quickly with our water and a slice of bread and butter each which the Hubby and I quickly gobbled as we were both starving. The Hubby inquired if the bread was made by them or bought in (professional interest and all) and we were informed the chef made it by hand. It was a white loaf with a beautiful crust and I thoroughly enjoyed it although the Hubby (being the perfectionist he is) said he thought it was slightly underbaked and a little doughy in the middle still.
Overall we had a fabulous night the meal was beautiful and amazing reasonably priced at just $56 dollars a head for the 5 course degustation. Drinks were also well priced as I ordered a vodka martini which was $15 which is quite reasonable compared to some places in the city. Service was fantastic as the wait staff were friendly and personable and very helpful, the decor was lovely and the atmosphere was perfect for a romantic meal with a loved one.
Whilst driving there we questioned whether we would normally go to a restaurant that take us an hour to drive to and if it will be worth it but having tried to food we would definitely go back although we may use public transport next time as we did have a little trouble finding parking.
Wooden Spoon Bar and Restuarant is located at Shop 3/362 Military Rd, Cremorne NSW 2090 and is open 5pm until late daily.
