We first heard about this restaurant when we went to watch the documentary movie about the restaurant Noma located in Denmark.
After watching the movie a chef from Paper Daisy was a guest to address the audience and to discuss the period of time he spent at Noma.
Lucky for us the chef, Ben Devlin came back to Australia and set up a restaurant called paper daisy at Halcyon House at Cabarita beach in Northern New South Wales.
As usual we are able to find something to celebrate and headed down to Paper Daisy for lunch. It was early June and the day after a massive storm had hit the Gold Coast in Queensland. For a moment we thought we may not even get to lunch since the usual road was totally flooded – in the end we had to go another route.
From the moment we arrived we really loved the decor with blues and whites and yellows it was very inviting and very serene.
You have the choice of a three course or two course menu. We opted for the two course menu at $65 per head. Since there were three of us we ordered two entrees (starters), three main meals and one dessert.
We started with a gorgeous prawn dish that had some amazing flavours. We also had a char grilled fish to share that was very delicate and had some lovely citrus tastes.
For main our meat eating friend ordered pig and we opted for a pumpkin dish and another fish meal – snapper wrapped in bark. The mains came with the side of beans and broccoli and a delicious salad.
We were quite full by this stage but it didn’t stop us sharing a mandarin and almond tart with cheese ice cream. Three spoons, one dessert and three happy campers.
We asked the waiter if she could enquire whether Chef Ben would be willing to have his photo taken with us and, with a little bit of cajoling, he agreed.
Total with drinks for three $236. Visited June 2016.
