Where to Eat : Cilantro's Restaurant

We've got a place that will knock your socks off. The chic Cilantro Restaurant is most suitable for dining over business talks, power meetings and high class romances. Things run like clockwork, service is unobstrutively attentive and food comes on time. Ambience is simply serenely modern. The decor is creatively designed with mirrors extending halfway from the floor to the ceiling, modern table seatings and great lighting, giving Cilantro that chic spacious look.
Cilantro likes truffle, be it truffle oil, truffle sauce or others. Foie Gras is also used rather a lot and is one of their specialties. If you are seated and hungry, you must start of with the flavoured butter accompanying the warm soft bread, before pressing on to the main fare.
The chic restaurant has a good set of menu ranging from beef to catches of the sea. But we like the braised cod with shirauo and truffle sauce. Comes imaginatively garnished with squid rings in batter. The cod is a tad soft for our liking but surprisingly melts in the mouth! The shirauo and truffle sauce is akin to a superhero sidekick, elevating the dining experience several notches with its flavourful taste. Portions are small but perhaps good things come in small packages...
Cliantro's Crepe Suzettes are a good bet for desserts. Expertly prepared, glazed with blueberries and topped with ricotta ice cream, best eaten when the ice cream is still cold and crepes hot. Sounds tricky but the melting combo is a wonderful dessert to end the meal. All other desserts are delicious as well at Cilantro's, especially anything with chocolate. Oh yes, reservations are a must...
