Seawatch Dining Room, White Point Beach Resort: Don't Think They Can Make a Bad Meal!
Seawatch Dining Room at White Point Beach Resort has a great menu, utilising local produce, and offers something for pretty much every taste. Seafood, of course, vegetarian selections, and comfort foods that even fussy children would enjoy. The dining room, as the name implies, overlooks the ocean, and the choice tables are the ones by the windows. There is east coast/celtic music played, and it is very relaxing. Guests can buy a meal plan, and only about 4 items on the menu are not covered (A meal plan voucher for dinner includes an appetiser/starter/salad, a main course/entree and a dessert, plus tea/coffee/milk/soft drink (pop), with taxes, but not gratuities included, and then any alcoholic beverages is paid for separately.). I've been here for breakfasts and dinners, and am convinced that they do not know how to cook poorly! Everything is terrific down to the last detail.
The staff are great - friendly, helpful, and very good. They add to the whole dining experience.
Favorite Dish: The breakfast buffet on the weekends is marvellous - but be very very hungry. The omelets that they make to order are HUGE! The weekend dinner buffet is very extensive too, with several salads, veggies, 2 or 3 meat selections, and a great selection of desserts. Nothing is done second rate!
The "Elevated Seafood Stew" contains huge hunks of haddock, salmon, scallops, shrimp and lobster done in a brandy-cream sauce and served in a vol-au-vent pastry shell, along with a lovely selection of perfectly cooked veggies. Marvellous!
The Caesar Salad is wonderful - none of those awful heavy cream dressings, this is a lovely light olive oil based dressing, with parma chese shredded on it, real bacon bits, and wonderful croutons, and a slice of lemon to let you add a bit more tang. I haven't had such a wonderful caesar salad in years, and had to have it 2 nights in a row. Might try the Spinach salad tonight it looks interesting.
The steak (8oz Striploin) was very good, with a mound of roasted garlic mashed potatoes, and some perfectly cooked snowpeas.
The desserts... oh... the desserts! Last night I had the Cappuccino Creme Brulee, which was heavenly - light, and just the right amount. The night before it was the warm gingerbread with an apricot and golden raisin compote, and some fresh whipped cream. That would be lovely just on its own with a cup of coffee... a little big after a rich dinner.
Breakfasts... well the "Continental Continental Breakfast" is a lovely way to start the day - a lovely warm croissant, with a couple of pieces of cheese (yesterday it was brie), and lots of sliced fruit (pineapple, honeydew melon, cantelope/rock melon for you Aussies, orange slices, and a huge, sweet strawberry.
Today I had the eggs benedict - 2 with hollandaise sauce, and Canadian back bacon, on an English muffin (crumpet), with lovely homefries. Excellent.
