Take a journey to Echo on the marina located on the serene Roseville water front. A licenced restaurant, as the name suggests situated on the marina. This place is what we have been looking for: a great location, food and service, not too expensive or pretentious
The beautiful setting making this restaurant suitable for any occasion, be it a nice breakfast, family lunch, a catch up with friends or for an event. The restaurant is child friendly with kids menu’s and food for them to feed the resident fish and ducks.If you drive, there are two locations to park, both with a short but scenic walk involved. If you aren’t so mobile take a ride on the travelator. Take a boat if you have one or if you want to work up an apetite you can also kayak or SUP(stand up paddle) in, just take note of tidal movements.
On this occasion we visited echo on the marina for a fabulous Sunday lunch. The service is attentive, yet relaxed. The staff enjoyed their work and had a good dynamic which adds to the great dining experience.
They cater to allergies and dietry requirement, just let them know in advance. To start we enjoyed the fresh flavours of the seared tuna tataki with a celeriac and caviar salad with a fluttering of beetroot leaf. An ideal way to start the meal.
We followed this with something substantial. We odered an amazing rib eye and smoked duck with a side of parmesan crusted, pesto green beans.
The rib eye cooked to perfection, served with roasted baby beets, heirloom carrots, green beans and mushrooms sauced with a jus and a side of horseradish cream.
The smoked duck was succulent and has me salivating just thinking about the dish. Accompanied by sweet potato mash caramelised pear and green beans.
Although the desserts sounded inviting we passed on this occasion due to the generous portions size of the meals we ordered. Enjoyed a meal by the water in a tranquil setting surrounded by the boats moored on the marina. We will definitely return.
