Overcooked medium rare - Beef Tenderloin - Guillaume at Bennelong - By Julia

Julia wanted her steak medium-rare, but was a little overdone, but still moist, tenderm and full of beefy flavour. Sitting beneath it were the juiciest, tasties field mushrooms we had ever had. All this was flavoured with a sweetish merlot sauce and a confit of shallot that gave it an oniony zing.

All our expectations were met at Guillaume at Bennelong! All we needed was good food done well, and we got all that at Guillaume's.

 

If we ever get the chance, perhaps we should go back for the 8-course degustation!
