The Roundhouse Tavern

I think it was the Friday after we got home that GG and I did the right thing and did our food shopping after we got home from the gym, but when we got home after that, cooking wasn’t high on our list of things to do. So we thought we would peruse the Entertainment Book for places close by. The Roundhouse Tavern fit the bill perfectly. Located on the corner of Amelia and Main in Balcatta, it was all of a 5 minute drive away from home.So we arrived, fair to say it didn’t look all that flash from the outside, and perhaps after a recent night out, also courtesy of the Book, I was a little wary.

But once we walked in side we knew already that just visually it was miles in front. Had a nice relaxed atmosphere and friendly staff directed you to a table with a menu and explained that it was bar service. Worked fine for us. So we sat down and perused the menu that was pretty extensive – a lot of choice. They also had some great $20 dinner specials – that include a mains and a piece of cheesecake – great deal.

We decided we’d just go with mains though and in the end both couldn’t go past the lamb skewers. They came marinated in mint balsamic and garlic, served on roast vegetables, rocked and Danish fetta salad ($25.50)I guess I wasn’t too sure what to expect but I was more than pleasantly surprised with what was presented. Perhaps the deep fried pasta on top wasn’t required, but it looked a little bit fancy. And the lamb was delicious, really good quality and nice flavours. And the salad underneath – excellent – plenty of rocket, roasted sweet potato and beetroot and then soft goats cheese, all with a balsamic vinegar dressing. The combination worked really well together.

It was a really enjoyable meal and I would definitely head back for another visit. So don’t be turned out by the outside, its lovely inside, nice and casual vibe, and great for a quick and tasty meal on one of those nights you don’t fancy cooking.
