Angsana Laguna Phuket's signature restaurant, offering an extensive selection of fine wine and quality steak in an elegant indoor or al fresco setting.
High quality steaks, fresh local Thai seafood, mouthwatering desserts and robust wine offerings paired with contemporary, romantic al fresco dining or air-conditioned comfort, combine for a polished dining experience at Bodega & Grill at Angsana Laguna Phuket.
Upon arrival, we were escorted to a lovely corner table romantically lit with yellow lights. Sparkling water was poured as we appreciated the quiet calm of the restaurant’s location and dove straight into the menu.
The restaurant manager came over and offered us some advice on the in-depth menu, and while we unanimously decided on 18 Months Aged Burrata Cheese for a starter, a waiter appeared and served us a refreshing welcome drink combination of prosecco, honey and lemon grass. Cool and crisp, it paired well with the creamy textures of the Burrata Cheese.
We decided on steaks grilled medium well for our main course. I chose the Australian Grass Fed Black Angus Tenderloin while my dining partner fancied a 12 oz. U.S. Chilled 250 days Grain Feed Prime Beef Rib Eye. Both steaks were grilled to perfection and featured a simple olive oil and black pepper rub. Our waiter recommended Dijon Mustard on the side to bring out the flavour of the meat. We choose sides of Creamy Spinach with Nutmeg and Peanuts and Wild Field Mushroom with Shishito Peppers. Served in individual crockery, the dishes taste smooth and earthy.
Bodega & Grill features a fully-stocked wine cellar with over 150 varieties of international wines. After a short tour of the cellar, we made a decision. Choosing a glass of savoury Cabernet Sauvignon we decided to order dessert. The Tiramisu was light and fluffy, more resembling a cheesecake than the traditional Italian dessert.
If you are looking for an upscale dining experience in a romantic setting, featuring premium cuts of steak, fresh local seafood, an extensive wine list and sumptuous desserts, Bodega & Grill located in Angsana Laguna Phuket is a wonderful choice. The ambiance and the service alone will guarantee a return visit.
