Set in one of Spring Garden’s most beautiful buildings, Grand Pacific lives up to its name – Grand! It is an absolutely stunning building and you see something new everywhere you look.

I was seated in the opulent dining space behind the very impressive bar. The menu is eclectic and there is plenty to choose from. I started with a Chirashi Sushi Bowl, which was so beautifully presented. The waiter informed me that every dish has been thought about as to how it will look on Instagram. Perfection. I paired my starter with a Bloody Mary – the drink of champions (or those needing a hair of the dog!).

For my main course, I indulged in Beef Tsukamen, Seared Rump Steak, Udon Noodles and Mushroom Dashi. It was divine. An absolute triumph and, again, looked very aesthetically pleasing.

Cocktails are one of the most exciting things at Grand Pacific, and the theatre that comes with some of them is incredible. Think blowtorches, flames and enough fruit to qualify as a week’s worth of your five-a-day!

If you like good food, amazing cocktails and awesome buildings, then visit Grand Pacific. I promise you won’t be disappointed.
