Many moons ago GG said he was taking me to dinner, somewhere I hadn’t been before, which is always an exciting proposition. We ended up at Trigg Island Café – a beautiful spot right on the water. I hadn’t actually ever heard of it, but I imagine it’s been around for a while – big crowd the first time I was there. So I thought I’d do the right thing and book this time, so we had a table guaranteed.
It was an absolutely beautiful evening – weather was perfect and there’s a lot of be said for watching the sunset with your favourite fella, while happily sipping on a glass of WA wine. The service at this place is also brilliant – attentive and friendly.
The menu isn’t overly extensive, but there’s enough choice that everyone should find something. I especially like that they have some lighter options or offer things in entrée or mains size. I went with the chicken stirfry in entrée size, while GG went for the steak and calamari combo. His came with some amazing chips, a side salad and an absolutely incredible pepper sauce on the steak. So delicious tasty – a little bit creamy with a little heat from the peppercorns.
And I really enjoyed my stirfry – nice chunky bits of chook in a tasty marinade, with an abundance of fresh vegies, served on rice. For entrée it was an incredibly generous serve that definitely had me glad I didn’t try to tackle the mains size! I was actually too full from my meal that I couldn’t even contemplate dessert.
I would totally go back to this place. Perhaps its not fine dining, silver service style, but the food quality is very high, service is excellent and you can’t beat the view for that added something special. Wonderful spot!
