It was lunch time (after our first Chiropractor visit at Seaford – Southeast of Melbourne CBD) and we were looking for a restaurant around this area. We found a Mediterranean-Italian place called Caesar’s Bar Restaurant Cafe through our Greater Melbourne 2011 | 2012 Entertainment™ Book.
Caesar’s Bar Restaurant Cafe offers Lunch Specials (1 course $20, 2 courses $29.9) but they were not valid with the Entertainment™ Card. We decided to just have mains as we had breakfast not to long ago. Ms. L. ordered a main from Caesar’s suggestion board, the Atlantic Salmon – Fillet grilled medium on baby spinach risotto and grapefruit veloute garnish with caramelized grapefruit and salmon roe ($36.9). The dish looked good but the salmon was a little overcooked. However, the risotto was the saviour.
There were quite a number of interesting main dishes on the menu. I was a little adventurous and went for the Capretto – Victorian boned baby goat slow braised with black olives, casalinga salami and winter root vegetables served in ‘hot pot’ with panfried lemon oil black Tuscan cabbage ($37.9). (Ms. L. immediately recognized the brand of the cast iron pot being sold at Aldi!) The baby goat was very tender and the stew was quite tasty.
Lil’ M. gets a little bit of mine and Ms. L.’s in addition to a side dish, Potatoes with garlic and rosemary ($4.9).
The dishes we’ve tasted were not bad, enjoyed my baby goat, and the service was excellent. We might return to try the other main dishes when we have exhausted our choices around this area.Caesars Restaurant
