Formerly known as McLaren's on the Lake, now called Serafino Restaurant. It is literally 40 minutes away from the Adelaide CBC, Serafino is situated at McLaren Vale overlooking the lake, it is truly beautiful.
We did some wine tasting at the cellar door earlier on in the day, this cabernet sauvignon was very smooth to drink.
For entree, I had the seared tuna with prawns. The tuna was cooked perfectly, it was pink in the middle rested on a bed of mushrooms. The honey prawns were coated with sesame seeds, A very delicious dish to eat.
Quails and scallops were cooked in a light batter. This dish was a little dry for me. I would have enjoyed the scallops to be seared, that way it would bring out the juice and tenderness of the scallops.
The duck was the highlight for the evening, two big pieces of such meat and they were to die for. I couldn't fault this dish, it was gastronomical.
Seafood risotto was cooked in a broth with creamy consistency.
Why not book a night or a weekend getaway at Serafino? That was what we did, after dinner we made our way back to the room which was located right behind the restaurant. Deluxe spa rooms overlooking the gardens, surrounded by gum trees and swimming pool in a tranquil environment.
We enjoyed our stay at Serafino. It was the perfect place to stay, relax and indulge ourselves.
