Last weekend, a no particular destination morning drive, saw us end up at Mon Komo Hotel. Located directly across the road from Suttons beach, the sea breeze is a refreshing change to the city air.
Water themes are continued, with gently cascading and pooling water, greeting you at this particular entry. Areas created around the hotel, flow into each other, almost like waves lapping gently at a beach. The big covered deck area, flows down into the main restaurant bar area on one side, as the other end of the deck flows into a huge outdoor seating area sprinkled with shade areas. Inside and outside, different areas merge seamlessly, leaving you with an impression of the sheer size of this hotel, but still a comfortable feeling, not lost at sea in amongst the vast areas surrounding you.
The covered deck was a nice area to enjoy breakfast. Staff here were efficient and friendly. Orders were taken and drinks/food delivered in a timely manner, all with a smile an some light banter.
Food was neatly presented, fresh and cooked to a high standard. Hubby enjoyed his Mon Komo big brekky. The bacon on this particular dish was among some of the nicest we have tasted. I followed with my theme of trying something a little different, this time round I opted for the corn cakes.
These were beautifully soft, nicely cooked, maybe a little too oily for my taste, however that would be a preference as opposed to a criticism.
We took the time to enjoy breakfast and relax into the day. When you are presented with a venue which offers this opportunity, you grab it and enjoy.
This is a place we would like to return to, probably for a long lunch sometime. I could just picture myself here, glass in hand, a cooling sea breeze, kicking back over lunch and a quiet drink or two, watching the world go by. Stop in sometime, it’s definitely worth a look.
Yes we will be back…. . 😄
