Savour Desserts

Finally, a 5 Star Sunday Lunch worthy of a 5 star rating.

Savour @ 15 On Orange holds their luxurious Sunday Lunch buffet on the first Sunday of every month.  But it comes at quite a price.  R495 per person. However, not only does it include enough goodies to feed an army, it also includes bottomless Graham Beck Méthode Cap Classique bubbly.

The starter section was quite spectacular and included items like Prawns and Avocado Cocktail, Fresh Shucked Oysters, Cobb Salad, Beef Tataki, etc.

The Entrées were unfortunately on a much smaller scale but the quality of the food was very good.  The selection included Hazelnut Crusted Beef Filet Mignon, Chermoula Lamb Cutlets and Royal Thai Seafood Curry.

The desert section was also rather impressive and included items like a hot pudding with custard, cheesecake, fudge, etc.

Of course, we can’t forget to mention the Graham Beck bubbly was divine.

The service was very good – our waiter was very attentive. We had a few small irritations like no butter our table and having our soup getting cold while the waiter goes off to find us soup spoons.  Other than that everything ran very smoothly.  Food was replenished quickly and we had no issues with waiting around for any items.

We thoroughly enjoyed the experience.  However, we really can’t justify the price of the lunch. You would really need to drink quite a bit of bubbly to justify paying R495 for the experience.

My suggestion would be to have the option of the buffet with or without the bubbly, as not everyone drinks alcohol.
