Who doesn’t love the soft hum of jazz music over a mediterranean dinner? The decadent, white-washed paradise that is Bagatelle, invites you to attend an exceptional evening of French cuisine and funky jazz every Saturday night. An uber-classy crowd frequent this upscale eatery every night of the week, where a dubious party gets underway every night of the week past 10pm.
The doors open to reveal an extravagant, art-deco inspired interior, crowned with chandeliers. It’s white, with nothing but hot pink accessories providing a much-needed pop of colour. It’s Saturday night, yet the French fusion restaurant is overrun with customers dining and drinking at the bar. A vibrant, up-all-night energy is present all night long and the crowd cheers as the house jazz band enter the stage.
Starters range from a humble, yet tasty heritage beetroot salad to tempting black truffle pizza. Accompany these delicious dishes with one of Bagatelle’s signature cocktails. The Lolita is worth a try, packed full of zesty guava, lemon and lavender.
There’s a variety of mouth-watering main courses, from the tender filet mignon and pan-seared sea bass to a wintery flavoured black truffle gnocchi. Expect explosive flavours and decadently prepared dishes with beautiful aesthetics and side dishes that are to-die-for, such as pommes puree and kale.
Desserts are expectantly over-the-top with lavish candied peanuts and abstract-shaped toppings. We end the meal with a unique dessert of pineapple, pomegranate seeds and vanilla ice cream.
