Described by my boss as "The Happening Place" these days in the North of the island, Flowers of Paradise proved to be one of the best restaurants I have ever experienced.
Duo of Foie Gras and Scallops turned out to be just one of each, but the flavours were so intense that it took a while to savour. My wife's Ravioli of Lobster Tail was also divine.
I think I first enjoyed Tournedos Rossini at the Plough Inn at Rhosemaen in Wales in around 1969 since when I have eaten it whenever I see it on a menu, but last night's was not only cooked to perfection and accompanied with a perfect selection of vegetables, but was topped with another fried Fois Gras rather then the ubiquitous pate - which made the dish positively different. Congratulations Chef. My wife's Pigeon was (like the other dishes) a bit on the small side, but both mains left enough room for 2 exquisite desserts.
The wine menu and the wine "cave" are extensive, predominantly French, sorted by wine region,certainly not cheap, but when you have exceptional food, it deserves exceptional wine.
The only negative for me is that they do not accept American Express, which I usually expect from this standard of restaurant, but that is more than compensated by the fact that it is less than a mile from my home in Bain Boeuf.
First Class Gourmet food. I will certainly return soon.
