Fine dining in Hamilton

Tonight, we had a fine dining experience. En Q Restaurant & Wine Bar in Hamilton was last week voted best restaurant in the 2007 Tempo Readers Choice Awards, and I can see why.

En Q has had mixed reviews in the past, and apparently has had a change of ownership which has seen the restaurant revamped and the food and service totally revitalised. The table settings were superb and the service was immaculate - friendly, efficient, and very polite. The meal started with a small creamy potato and watercress soup to prepare the palate and some delicious tomato and basil bread. (All complimentary - even better!) Our main courses were delicious beyond belief. I can highly recommend the honey & orange marinated chicken with mild chilli & apricot sauce while my two friends enjoyed the pan cooked pork fillet on creamed leeks & oyster. We topped it off with dessert (of course), decadent chocolate & hazelnut pot and banoffee pie En Q. Absolutely delicious! Belissimo!!
