We went for lunch on the third day:



Hahn light beer ............. $6
Gin and tonic ........ $16
Cape Schanck Pinot Grigio ........... $36 Lamb Tartlet with cucumber yogurt, lemon and paprika ........ $6
Flash fried calamari with paprika, lemon and pink river salt ....... $14
Butter fried Spanish Mackerel with steamed broccolini and bok choy ......... $30
Mixed green salad with olive oil and balsamic dressing ...... $10

Total $118
