In a tweet: An affordable brunch with good quality food just off The Walk in JBR. Best for a family-friendly brunch.
The venue: Just off The Walk and on the ground floor of the JA Ocean View Hotel is Le Rivage, a light, airy and spacious restaurant.
The food: To start off there are exquisite ‘little dishes’. We can’t get enough of the avocado mousse with shredded crab, shots of creamy leek and potato soup, bite-sized quiche lorraines and tiny pastries filled with cream cheese and topped with herbs and fish roe. Next up there are duck pancakes, Chinese dumplings, sushi, octopus, potato salad and sweet, hot edamame beans. Late-risers will appreciate the ‘breakfast bar’, with a full fry-up on offer, including crispy hash browns and eggs cooked how you like. And if you’re missing your mum’s roast dinner, there’s juicy chicken with almost all the trimmings. The roast duck with orange sauce is slightly pink in the middle and perfect with baby new potatoes and roasted veg. There is no chocolate fountain, but Le Rivage serves an impressive hot chocolate pudding with chocolate sauce, or an equally comforting hot bread and butter pudding. Try the delicate pear strudel with vanilla sauce to finish off a very good meal.
