I HADN’T been to Pure South for a long time so I thought it was time for a return trip. My dad had gone there about a week before and said it was a lot better since last time.

When we arrived we were given some fresh bread with butter. The fresh bread was very nice but the butter was very strong. For the entrées we didn’t share so I ordered Seafood Linguine to myself.

Before my entree arrived we were given a beetroot and goat’s cheese appetiser which looked fantastic. I’m not a fan of goat’s cheese, but I discovered the beetroot had a very nice taste.

The Seafood Linguine came next and there was a huge variety of seafood on the plate including fish, mussels, squid and clams. I tried the clams first - I’ve never eaten clams before and I thought they would be like mussels which I don’t like. But I was wrong, they tasted great and were one of the best things in the dish. The squid and fish were also both very good. The mussels didn’t taste that nice but were cooked well.

For the mains we all shared Braised Beef Cheek with Onion risotto, a pork belly dish and a big steak.

The best dish of the day by far was the Braised Beef Cheek. It was the best dish I’ve ever had at Pure South. The beef could be cut by a spoon and tasted great and the onion risotto was perfect.

Next I tried the pork belly – it was a bit of a disappointment. The pork was fine, but there were heaps of other unnecessary elements on the plate.

Finally I had the steak. Pure South steaks are some of the best in Melbourne in my opinion and I wasn’t let down. It was perfectly cooked, but it would have been way better if it had a garlic butter or something like that.

So Pure South was well worth a return visit and I probably will be going back there soon.

I visited Pure South last year when my sister very kindly offered to treat me & my partner to dinner there. She'd been a few times & had always enjoyed it.

I had high hopes, but was left disappointed - as were my dining companions. Both my sister and boyfriend ordered steaks: one medium and one medium rare. Both arrived overcooked.

The fish I ordered was passable, but for the location & prices we spent we expected much more.

Keep up the great work James!

In both men and women, I think Hermes handbags and the Rolex Watches are used more interchangeably than watches for men and women.It is particularly common to see women wearing men's Luxury Breitling Watches. Me, for example, I wear Original Omega Watches Must 21 of my boyfriend with the black rubber strap.There are many legitimate 1:1 IWC online retailers that sell new certified watches.?At their lower prices, Cartier watches become watches at discounted prices and that's a good thing! Rolex Submariner Watche have splendid styles and designs giving the product a unique style.
