(sorry about the quality - iphone photos!)
yesterday was my 3 year anniversary with my boyfriend, and without a doubt, it was one of the BEST nights i've ever had. we booked a room at the establishment hotel, a beautiful little boutique hotel a 5 minute walk from circular quay. our package included a 7 course degustation menu at est. and a continental breakfast buffet the next morning, and everything was perfect from the moment we arrived. the hotel is gorgeous - i highly recommend it if you ever feel like you need to escape. the room was HUGE and beautifully furnished, with lovely big windows, a very comfy bed & sofa, marble bathroom & a complimentary ipad with wifi to use during your stay (which my man made very good use of. he now wants to buy one for himself.)
dinner at est. was most definitely the highlight of our stay. it's definitely pricey but we got quite a good deal by getting it as a package with the hotel, and every one of the seven courses took our breath away. whether it be the quality, the tastes or the presentation, it was all impeccable and could not be faulted. the service was attentive without being overbearing and if you want to treat yourself or someone special, you MUST go to est. and have the venison main - it was the first time my man had experienced venison and he didn't stop raving about how incredible it was for the rest of the night.
breakfast was in the gin garden and had a lovely assortment of sonoma breads, pastries, fruit salad & toasted muesli, which was completely perfect after the epic meal the night before! and they serve T2 tea, which just happens to be my favourite. so i may have enjoyed an earl grey or two. or three.. but overall the stay was perfect. and to the man who's made me incredibly happy over the past three years: happy anniversary
