Hi Lovelies, for all you foodies out there keep on reading!!
Pigalle is a restaurant well-known for a stylish night out, not only do they serve superb dinner courses but they offer live entertainment from the dance floor as well. Yes, there’s a dance floor. Pigalle’s menu consists of classic dishes with a subtle Portuguese flair, a direct influence from the Goncalves brothers who own the restaurant group.
The venue looks like the ideal place to be for a date night or even just a fun elegant evening out with your friends/family. The restaurant will be serving a Winter Seafood Platter for two (R550.00) consisting of two Natal Lobsters, prawns, line fish, calamari and mussels, prepared to their special recipe.
The greatest thing about diving into their seafood platter is the fact that their seafood is sourced from local suppliers who are aligned with the South African Sustainable Seafood Inititative (SASSI). Not only are you getting a great meal and entertainment, but you know that what you are eating is within the sustainable guidelines. I encourage you to read up on the SASSI guidelines and see how you can start making better and greener choices.
Now to all the meat lovers, here is something for you. They serve meat sourced from all over South Africa, namely Chalmar beef which is known for its superior quality and tenderness. On their two or three-course Winter set Menu they have dishes like the Balsamic Beef Fillet with mustard mash. wilted spinach and a balsamic beef. The great news is that they have created a smaller menu which offers a complete Pigalle experience from start to finish but you get value for your money (double win)
“This set menu, which includes Queen Prawns grilled in lemon butter and lightly brushed with garlic and Wild Mushroom Risotto served with asparagus spears, also offers a recommended wine pairing for each dish. For example Black Mussels prepared in a white wine veloute with a touch of paprika paired with Paul Cluver Chardonnay and Beef Carpaccio thinly sliced and served with a confit of beetroot, herb roasted baby tomato, wild rocket and pecorino paired with Rupert and Rothschild Classique”.
Sounds delicious doesn’t it?
But there’s more….. the menu ends on a sweet note with classic desserts like Crème Brûlée served with homemade biscotti, Malva pudding served with a crème anglaise and decadent Chocolate Mousse. This is a restaurant that I am so eager to try out, Not only does the menu sound absolutely delicious but scoring free live entertainment is definitely a big bonus (let’s just be real quick, those desserts though?! cannot wait to sink my teeth into that mousse)
Two courses cost R250 and three courses R280. Pigalle’s Winter Specials are available from Mondays to Thursdays (dinner only) and Tuesdays to Fridays (lunch only).
I will do a review on my experience at the restaurant, atmosphere and (most importantly) the food as soon as I try it out (which I am dying to do) but for now I say HURRY and make your booking so you can have a lovely evening of fine dining with your loved ones.
p.s leave a comment if you’ve tried it out or after you have experienced it, I would love to hear your thoughts!!
