Hubs and I were able to head out to dinner on Saturday night, just the 2 of us, and we both agree that it was one of the nicest meals out we have had in a very long time. We went to the Watermarc restaurant in Wangaratta - we hadn't been there before but had heard good things about it. We arrived around 7pm and sat at a table outside, along the river. We really wanted to take our time and make the evening last, so we ordered some wine and started off with some oysters kilpatrick. They were fantastic - a great start to a delightful culinary experience. We then ordered 2 more entrees - a margarita pizza and soft-shelled crab. Our theory is that if a place can simple things well, they are onto something. The margarita pizza was delicious and the soft-shelled crab, delightful.
We then went for 2 more entrees to share - house made fettuccine with calamari ragu (yes, we love seafood) and the house made gnocchi with pumpkin and shredded boccocini. Scrumptious! We then went for the jugular and ordered dessert. I had the vanilla creme brulee and Hubs had the Affogato with Frangelico which looked something like this:
The presentation of the meals, the service, the flavours, the freshness, the wine and the company were all sensational. We took our time and didn't feel at all rushed. It was one of those nights we will remember for some time, and a great way to celebrate the end of 4 and half tough years of study, moving around, and great times that we have had.
It was just one of those meals that reminds of this scene from one of my favourite movies, What About Bob:
Every mouthful left me wanting more, and I'm so glad we could end our time in Wangaratta with such a lovely memory.
