Morri's Place

Introduction: Formerly Cafe Renzi, after several changes of owner, this 1121 High St Armadale restaurant seems to be thriving.
Ambience: Gave me a feeling of an unpretentious 'good restaurant'

Service: Efficient, informed uniformed young staff

Food: The Oysters Alaska - stuffed with smoked salmon and crab meat with grilled Mornay sauce ($19.50 for 6) were fabulous. The oxtail and beef cheek ragu with baby turnips, shallots on a bed of crushed chats was filling and tasty, the meat cooked beautifully 'till it was falling off the bone. Crispy skin roast duck with prunes, blood oranges and armangac served with lightly cooked peas in the pod, young carrots and broccoli was also a handsome well prepared serve but sounded a lot fancier than it was

Wine: Licenced or what I rarely resist - BYO corkage $5

Price: Entrees about $12 Mains $21 to about $27 Desserts $10.50

Comments: Cuisine bourgeoise no doubt tasty substantial and sustaining

Score: 13.5/20
