Describing the restaurant

My name is Bill and I'm going to describe a wonderful restaurant:

About a year ago, I was invited by a friend of mine to go for lunch at a local restaurant. He actually chose it, not me, but it was very good and it is one of the best that I’ve ever eaten in. Everything was excellent, the service, the ambience, the food, and obviously good company as well, so it was a perfect afternoon we spent together.

The restaurant was maybe about 5km outside of the city where we live. It was in the country and situated next to a lake with a beautiful view of the surrounding countryside. Like I said, it was actually my friend who chose the restaurant. I didn’t even know about it, although I had heard several people mention its name before. It truly was a spectacular location, quite breathtaking in fact. Maybe that’s why so many people are enthusiastic about the place.

The food they offer is what would be classed as traditional food or ‘home cooking’ but it’s of a very high standard and superb quality. The menu is varied and includes something for everyone. There are traditional meat dishes, different types of fish and they cater for vegetarians too with plenty of variety available for those who don’t want to eat meat or fish.

I decided to have one of the local salmon, which is supposedly caught from the lake in front of the restaurant. My friend had a steak, he likes his red meat! The food was excellent; I couldn’t fault it for anything. It was served quickly and was delicious. It’s a place I will definitely be recommending to other people now that I’ve been and tried it for myself.

The whole experience was very good, from the food, the scenery and of course having an opportunity to catch up with my friend, so there were many reasons that I enjoyed eating there, and it was actually better than I thought it would be – which is always a nice surprise!
