The Croft House is located at the Sebel Hotel on Charlotte Street and offers breakfast, lunch, dinner and drinks. The restaurant is dedicated to bringing you the best local produce, focusing on authentic Modern Australian, share platters, specialty drinks, and a large selection of craft beers. We recently visited the restaurant to try out their dinner menu – after hearing some rave reviews we were looking forward to trying the menu for ourselves.
Pulled pork and potato croquettes – before visiting the croft house I had seen these delicious looking things pop up on various foodie social media accounts and heard nothing but good things about them so I was excited to give them a try. They did not disappoint! The coating was crunchy and golden and the filling of pulled pork and potato was amazing – to put it simply! These are quite large and because I am greedy I ate all of them. If you plan on having 3 courses it may be a good idea to share these so you can save space at the end for the textures of chocolate dessert – you don’t want to miss out on that!
Marinated Binnorie goats cheese – this starter was simple but delicious. The cheese was fresh and tangy and tasted delicious spread over the bread sticks. This is a nice, light option to start with.
Darling Downs 150 day grain fed bavette steak – sweet potato, cafe de paris butter, lemon and watercress – The steak, where do I even begin with this succulent piece of meaty goodness? Perfectly cooked (medium rare) with the buttery-ness and sweet. Every bite left me wanting more.
Ricotta gnocchi – assorted mushrooms, wild mushroom cream, sage and brown butter. This has to be the best gnocchi dish I have ever tasted! I am a huge fan of mushrooms so naturally this dish stood out for me. The flavour combination was perfect and not once did the dish get boring (sometimes I find that gnocchi can be quite bland after a few mouthfuls). The gnocchi itself was light and fluffy and deceivingly filling.
Textures of chocolate – bittersweet mousse, chic fudge brownie, peanut butter malto and espresso ice cream. This is The Croft House signature dessert and we can certainly see why, each mouthful of this dessert was a surprise with many flavours and textures throughout. The mousse was rich and creamy and was accompanied perfectly by the malto, ice cream and brownie. We would definitely recommend that you save space so that you can try this masterpiece!
