Restaurant Saucier

Introduction: One of a bunch of slightly better than average restaurants on High St. Armadale

Ambience: Pleasing

Service: More pleasing

Food: Most pleasing! Entrees rather expensive and not outstanding. The Confit of Duck on a bed of parsnip mash excellent. Desserts also excellent

Wine: Adequate range by the glass Tamar PinotNoir very good $7.5 The $6 Sauvion blanc quite acceptable

Price: About $100 for two courses for two

Comments: Aspiring to fine dining

Second visit - The cigar smoked salmon trout on a bed of kipfler potatoes had a significant smoky taste Searerd but almost raw Excellent
Third visit: Once again the food was extremely good. Entree of tiny oysters the only poor note. Pork Belly delicious Barramundi fillet beautifully prepared. Pork loin also tops. Filet minion blue as requested but had rested so long I suspect rigor mortice was setting in. The accompanying marrow, a piece of cold fat would not appeal to my dog. Unfortunately the service has deteriorated sadly. I did not appreciate the waitress addressing my wife, many years her senior, as "sweatheart" and having to wait TWO hours before the second course was simply unacceptable.
Score: 15/20 for food 12/20 for service
