I went to Chez Olivier last night for an impromptu dinner date with the husband. ^.^ The food was ......... *went speechless from the memory of it* - amazingly good.

I tried Bouillabaisse...
A fish soup containing different kinds of cooked fish and shellfish and vegetables, flavored with a variety of herbs and spices such as garlic, orange peel, basil, bay leaf, fennel and saffron. The broth is traditionally served with a rouille, a mayonnaise made of olive oil, garlic, saffron and cayenne pepper on grilled slices of bread. In Marseille, the broth is served first in a bowl containing the bread and rouille, with the seafood and vegetables served separately in another bowl or on a platter.
-- From the Wikipedia.

The combined taste that was created by the bread, the rouille and the broth was just HEAVENLY... I love it!

The restaurant itself has jump right up the Shelvia's Highly Recommended Places to Eat in Melbourne list. We'll definitely return... with camera! I can't believe I didn't have it with me yesterday. Argh!!! But it's OK - even the more reason to return and check out the cassoulet... :)

Look what I just found on the restaurant's Menu and Wine page.. Special Deals from Sunday to Thursday!!!! =D)
* Our LUNCH MENU is also very attractive with Some Entrees at $9.9, Mains at $17.9 and desserts at the same price of the entrees.
* Lunch Prix Fixe - Combine an entree and a main for $24.0 only and what about three courses for $29.0 only.
* Dinner Prix Fixe - A three course dinner at Chez Olivier for $36, that is thirty six dollars including the GST, YES YOU CAN!!!!

Ah... I love Melbourne, and the Internet. :)
