Loved Up Valentine’s At Whisper Restaurant and Gin Bar

This Valentine’s Day, let romance and love wash over you with this special evening catered by the dedicated team at Whisper Restaurant and Gin Bar.

This bespoke and intimate evening, set to the beautiful backdrop of the pristine Whisper Bay and Coral Sea, speaks to love and romance.

When you and your loved one arrive, take a sip from a chilled glass of bubbles, relax at your table and indulge in the sumptuous five course menu, carefully curated by Whisper Restaurant Head Chef Troy Fuller.

“We begin with a platter of freshly shucked oysters with ponzu dressing, a Japanese citrus dressing which tastes of lemon, with sweet and sour nods,” Troy explained.

“Our second course is a selection of zucchini, both charred and pickled, with lemon labneh, dill oil and tempura zucchini, which is a light course that eases our couples into the third course.

“Our third course is a seared kingfish, on a bed of pearl cous cous, gin-soaked raisins, toasted pine nuts, and citrus gel,” Troy explained.

“Fourth is the main course, with Riverina eye fillet, a fricassee of wild mushrooms, shitake and black garlic puree, on a bed of spring onion and potato gratin.”

Troy and his team are sending this romance-laden evening off with a delectable fifth and final course.

“This dessert is special; one we’ve created ourselves.

“We call it a Tirimi-Tart, a chocolate tart shell, filled with coffee crème pat, vanilla mascarpone, and chocolate tuille, and served with fresh and pureed strawberries. Rich and decadent, we are excited to finish this evening out with a bang!”
