I had wanted to visit Ananas for quite sometime. Luckily, it was chosen for a work client lunch. Unfortunately, because it was a client lunch I couldn’t exactly take pictures of the food.
Despite the lack of pictures, I still feel like my Ananas experience requires a post. Firstly, I actually think it’s a great option for business lunches as you can actually hear each other talk. We went on a Monday and it wasn’t overly busy. I could easily imagine the place being quite lively during dinner service, especially on Saturday/Friday nights. The decor is positively French with a bit of quirkiness, much to my liking.
For an entrée, I had the ‘Le Filet En Tartare’ – Steak Tartar Hand Chopped Filet, Capers, Quail Egg, Toasted Brioche. Having tried a few steak tartars, this one did not disappoint however, I could have gone without the large serving toasted brioche as fresh bread is offered to the table. For the main, I enjoyed ‘La Daurade Grillé’ – Provençale Grilled Snapper, Tapenade, Beans, Confit Tomatoes, Lemon. The snapper was cooked perfectly and the flavours balanced well. Although it was a delicious dish I probably will try something else next time.
