the fig and olive.

while on my whirlwind trip down to the country the week before last, my cousin and i stopped in at a newly opened restaurant in cowes, the fig and olive.

any restaurant with macrame pot holders in the front window is always going to be a winner in my book, but the food was super delicious too!

i had the claypot garlic prawns. the prawns were beautifully cooked and served in a tomato-y sauce that went perfectly with the crusty bread served on the side :D

my cousin and i purposely got entrees for mains, so that we'd be able to fit in dessert!

after spending AGES and AGES trying to decide what to have, we ended up each having a serve of the chocolate fondant.

it was DIVINE! perfectly gooey in the middle, and superbly matched with the pistachio ice cream and crunchy almond crumble.

it was a truly delicious night!

have you eaten anywhere new lately? where's your favourite place for dinner?

oh yes... one should where ever possible go the entree for mains in an effort to fit in dessert.
