Beautifully located on the side of Clear Mountain, with incredible vistas to the side and front, you will find the Mecure Clear Mountain Resort. Two restaurants are onsite. One being the general Lakeview restaurant boasting a wide wrap around verandah area giving you a choice of indoor or outdoor dining.
The second is the adults only dinner restaurant Mandy’s on the Moutain. Menus are similar and simplistic, in a good way. We enjoyed a lunch at Lakeview on a balmy weekend day, followed by an intimate dinner at Mandy’s, with a backdrop of wine, and nightcaps on the balcony overlooking the evertwinkling Brisbane & surounds lights.
This soft shell tempura crab lunch special, was incredibly soft, with the light tempura giving some crispness to the dish. Presentation was superb.
Pairing well with the stuffed jalapeño dish and delightful platter, lunch was most enjoyable.
With lunch definitely not disappointing, we were left wondering what delights would be in store for this evenings meal at Mandy’s..
We had a lovely conversation with new restaurant managerduring lunch. Interesting to see new staff learning the ropes. Certainly no complaints from us regarding staff, everyone we came across was friendly and helpful.
Natural oysters displayed on a bed of salt with crisp lime slices, provided that wonderful raw seafood flavour to the tastebuds. They were also a perfect starter to our dinner at Mandy’s on the Mountain.Crispy duck was my dinner choice. Never have I eaten such a delectably soft duck. With a crunch on the outside, the inside meat simply fell apart and melted in the mouth.Hubby declared his bangers and mash to be superb. Apparently a very enjoyable dish.Why not finish with a dessert? This tiramisu with pistachio ice cream, finished off hubby’s meal with that taste of sweet, but not too sweet. Again service here was superb.
There is no doubt we will be going back to either of these restaurants. To combine this wonderful food, with the atmosphere, views and service, why would we not return! Look forward to our next visit.
