The George

Cuisine: Modern Australian
Location: Perth CBD

Situated at the transformed London House, this newly opened venue at the time was host to a Christmas lunch for several of the teams at work. It was a set menu with a couple of choices for the entree, mains and dessert. For the entree I went with smoked trout with capers which was a generous serving of trout but it tasted more like smoked salmon and the capers which I had for the first time completed the meal extremely well. The other alternative was carpaccio which I had no idea what it was but later discovered is raw meat. I exchanged a bit of my entree with the other alternative from one of my team members. Carpaccio, didn’t have much taste but the capers with the addition of lots of cracked pepper goes really well.

Can’t remember exactly what I had for mains but I’m pretty sure I had crispy pork belly or bacon encasing grilled prawns served upon a light mash or was it fish. Tasty meal with the saltiness of the bacon balancing well with the other ingredients.

For dessert I chose a dark chocolate and raspberry tart served with milk chocolate ice cream. The actual dish was huge but off centre was the bowl holding the dessert which was unusual. The unusual thing was a huge dish with a little dessert. The tart was lovely but a little dry and quite rich so the ice cream went well. Pretty good but not memorable.

Verdict: Tasty. Great venue for an enjoyable time by all. The mains stood out for me but the entree doesn’t really involve much preparation and the dessert was serviceable without being spectacular.
Taste: Delicious
Price: Moderately Expensive, glad the company was paying and not me!
Value: Reasonable
Recommendation: Recommend

It's subjective but I base my reviews on 4 key areas:

Price: Bargain > Reasonable > Moderately Expensive > Expensive
Taste: Poor > Average > Great > Delicious
Value: Poor > Good > Reasonable > Excellent
Recommendation: Eat At Home Instead > Try Once If You Want But Not Worth Visiting Again > Worth Visiting > Recommend > Highly Recommend

The final recommendation will consider the price, taste and value. Value will be based on price and other factors like service and serving size.
