As you enter a modern building, you are unaware of what you are about to experience at Akelare. The first sense stimulated was sight because of the amazing view. We chose lunch as we had heard of the beautiful views overlooking the water. Our table was adjacent to the window. We were rewarded with a beautiful luminous bright day, allowing us to see far and wide as we were high on a cliff overlooking blue, blue water.
We were offered the option of three different tasting menus. One was classic signature dishes, one was more experimental dishes, and one more seasonal dishes of the Chef. Our Keeper Team consisted of 2 couples, so the guys chose the more experimental menu and the girls chose the seasonal menu, so that each couple could share and have tastes of two menus. Knowing that we would have over 2 dozen different dishes to taste, we decided to pair with Champagne for the entire meal.
