Ever seen the tallest building in Wales…? It’s in Swansea and has a beautiful restaurant at the top.
I was lucky enough to attend their first blogger event! I was so thrilled when I received my invitation. Ive always wanted to go there and see all the amazing panoramic views of Swansea. And what a great way to experience it, by trying out there Christmas menu.
When we arrived we got to the entrance and looked up… wow what a height!
The grape and olive is situated on the 28th floor. As we got off the elevator we had a flight of stairs to go up and we were there. As soon as I walked in, it felt like Christmas. The decorations were out and fairy lights over the railings giving the room a warm and cosy feeling.
Ffion from (shemeansbusiness) and Gavin (General manager) were the organizers of the event, and they greeted us at the top of the stairs. Lottie (lottielately) and I were the last to arrive at the event. After Ffion offering us a welcome drink she explained the itinerary for the evening.
We were going to taste starters, mains and deserts from two different Christmas menus. The Christmas festive menu which had 3 courses for £25. And the Christmas menu, which had 4 courses for £60.
Out came the starters! The smell of food quickly filled the room and I knew it was going to be great! My favorite starter by far had to be the potato and leek soup. The flavor was incredible. And it left a light peppery taste on your tongue. Best soup ever!
Then came the mains… the beef looked so good, very well presented. But unfortunately, I can’t eat beef as it doesn’t agree with me. I chose the fillet of hake with dijon mustard and I really enjoyed it. I also tried the vegetarian option, which was the sweet potato, squash and feta muffin.
The deserts… brilliantly decorated plates of tasty food, ready for us to try. I tried two of the deserts. A chocolate orange fondant and treacle tart. Heaven… that’s all I can say! What fantastic deserts! And just the right portion sizes.
The tallest building in Wales really has it all. Great panoramic views of Swansea, and a great restaurant which provides delicious food at very good prices. I would like to thank all the staff at the grape and olive for a great evening. And a special thank you to Ffion and Gavin for the invite.
If you haven’t already been, I strongly suggest getting over or up I should say, to the grape and olive.
