Romance and roses at Radisson Resort

Make Valentine’s Day on Saturday February 14 extra special with dinner at Radisson Resort Gold Coast. Dine indoors and enjoy views of golf course greens and the palm-fringed swimming pool or dine under the stars on the pool terrace.

The AUD$140 Valentine’s Night dinner for two includes a three-course gourmet meal with a glass of sparkling wine and a beautiful red rose on arrival. Book before January 31 and receive a complimentary bottle of wine.

Executive chef Volker Koepke has designed a menu of sensuous dishes to whet the appetite. Choose the Ocean Trio or Meadow Trio entrée and be prepared to be impressed.

The Ocean Trio features poached prawn tails with northern mango and thousand island dressing, a Pacific oyster on wilted leek with tomato and coriander salsa as well as
Tasmanian smoked salmon on an oriental mushroom risotto.

The Meadow Trio tempts the tastebuds with minted chicken and lime salad in a crispy cornet, petit lamb rubbed with smoked paprika accompanied by lemon and cucumber raijta, and a pork tender filled with brie, rolled in crumbs and served on beetroot hay.

Move on to gourmet main courses based on either beef, fish or chicken. Volker’s
beef tenderloin topped with a grilled field mushroom and fried quail egg on potato
roesti with broccolini, asparagus, and bourbon butter will satisfy the heartiest appetite.

The grilled king snapper with garlic prawn tails on green pea purée with kipfler potatoes,
asparagus and roasted capsicum salsa is a melody of tastes and textures.

The corn fed chicken filled with peppered mango and sweet tarragon with pumpkin risotto, buttered spinach, broccolini and smoked tomato coulis is a feast for the senses.

Sweet lovers will find the desserts irresistible. Try the Semifreddo Amore, concocted from fig and pistachio semifreddo and served with Galliano coffee jelly and chantilly.

The Dark Temptation is a decadently rich dark chocolate mousse with vanilla anglaise and lychee salad. The grand finale is coffee and Friandise liqueur.

Book a Radisson Romance package with the Valentine’s Night dinner, overnight accommodation in a stylish room and breakfast for two for AUD$319.
