Booked a room and a table for my bride's birthday. We stayed at the Best Western Yacht Harbor Inn in Dunedin with dinner reservations at the Bon Appetit Restaurant and Bar.
Robert was our charming server providing us with celebratory food and drink. We started with a couple of cocktails, and moved on to a Mediterranean Octopus Salad for me and a dandy blue cheese salad for she.
My octopus salad consisted of artichokes, pancetta, tomatoes, roasted garlic and kale. The octopus was very tender to the tooth and while big enough to be a main dish my buds of taste clamored for the excellent Half Rack of New Zealand Lamb.
For her entree my birthday bride reveled in the tasty Pan Seared Salmon. Both the salmon and the lamb were perfectly prepared.
Next up were the dessert shooters. The diner has a choice of six of these sweet delights. I chose the raspberry shooter and my bride had the chocolate peanut butter shooter with a little something extra thanks to Robert.
After dinner we wandered over to the adjoining outdoor bar for more celebration and conversation with neighboring patrons. We closed down the bar and made our way home - room 111 about 50 feet away.
The Yacht Harbor Inn isn't real fancy but it is clean, comfortable and convenient with a dandy bar, restaurant and view.
Dinner with cocktails and a bottle of rose' wine came to a pleasing $128.67.
We didn't stray too far from the hotel since the weather gods appeared to be angry, but we did wander about the marina.
