The restaurant has several recommended dishes that are quite special. Try the Chateaubriand steak; it’s the most succulent and most tender part of the fillet, and at Poolside it’s grilled to perfection and carved tableside. It’s a dish for two by the way, and is definitely a romantic choice, something to be accompanied by a good bottle of wine. Poolside also specialises in different cuts of steak, and highly recommended is the 120 day grain- fed beef, which is dry- aged for nearly a month Baywater 6before being chilled and exported. As you can see, Poolside cares very much about how the food comes with maximum flavour – it’s not a place that cuts corners. But that doesn’t mean dining here is expensive.
