M on the Point is located on the Mandurah waterfront and forms part of the Sebel Mandurah hotel’s dining experience. My family and I had been here a few times for their lunches, coffee and desserts. This time round we dined at the restaurant for lunch.
The reason why I’ve explicitly state that we were dining at the ‘restaurant’ is because M on the Point has both a casual bar and waterfront courtyard part (at the front) and a stylish and chic restaurant (towards the back). We thought we’ll try the restaurant this time round which was quieter and had a nicer ambience. We were seated on the outside facing the waterfront. Very good!
We ordered from the lunch special menu and had the following:
- Avocado, smoked salmon salad ($21.50)
- Spaghetti capricciossa with mushrooms, olive, tomato, basil, salami & prosciutto ($28.50)
- Prawn, scallop & snapper chowder ($21.50)
The Avocado, smoked salmon salad looked good – big halves of avocado topped with salmon pieces, very fresh and appetising. The Spaghetti capricciossa though was a miss, quite salty and dry. Would have been good with more sauce on it. I had the Prawn, scallop & snapper chowder. It looked quite plain and the top layer was already coagulated when placed on the table. Not a very good sign. However diving into the soup, I found huge pieces of prawns and scallops hiding underneath which took away the average first impression. It tasted quite good too which won me over at the end.
As the soup was not that filling I ordered a caramel and nut tart (can’t remember the exact name) for dessert and coffees for the table. The tart did the trick, quite a generous piece, almost too sweetly but really filled up the tummy. It was a nice end to the meal.
Overall it was an ok lunch. The dishes were smaller than expected for the price we were paying but tasted good, except the spaghetti. I would probably stick to the bar area the next time round but this was a good try.
A snippet of the desserts and cocktail from the bar area…
Creme brulee, Fried banana and icecream and Toblerone
Check out the size of the Ceme brulee. It’s humongous! and oh so good!! A must try! Not to forget the Toblerone, one of my favourite cocktail. The version here is slushy-like and awesome! Love the plentiful chocolate sauce on it! It’s a must try too!
