A date night should comprise of good food, good company, romantic atmosphere and incredible service. Well that’s exactly what Meletso got when we visited Maximillien to sample the new Spring date night menu. Located at Nelson Mandela Square in Sandton on the 4th floor, Maximillien Restaurant is situated below the DAVINCI Hotel and Suites.
We were treated to the new menu by Executive Chef Sylvester Nair. Maximillien serves french cuisine with a modern twist and the menu certainly did not disappoint. As we were seated at our table or should I say booth, opposite the grand piano, we were serenaded with romantic melodies.
Our server Gift provided us with the menu and we started with the Chef’s salad to share which was made up of: biltong, blue cheese and butternut, also artichokes which were a delicious surprise, I must say it was delightful!
We paired our meal with Fleur de Cap, Sauvignon Blanc 2015 , which complimented the main dishes very well – a sure hit that is also unfiltered.
Speaking of mains, I had the Sole en Papilote, cooked in a paper bag and served with mussels, clams and a white wine veloute, tomato and spring onion. The fish was cooked to perfection and the white wine sauce was velvety and I just wanted to eat it with everything.
Tc had the rolled chicken stuffed with hazelnuts and parsley butter, bacon, wild mushroom, green pea puree, confit cherry tomatoes and creamed potato, the chicken was very moist complimenting the palette texture on the exterior.
For dessert we were wowed with a spectacular dessert platter paired by a sparkler to end our meal. The dessert platter comprised of chocolate brownies, macaroons with chocolate mousse, a blue cheese cake with summer fruits and chocolate truffles.
The date night menu is available every Thursday night at only R400 per couple and this includes a bottle of wine, which is paired specifically for this menu.
Meletso thoroughly enjoyed our evening from the fine dining, romantic restaurant ambiance and the gracious hospitality from the staff, make sure you treat your loved one to this fantastic special!
