This is the second part of my Turners Restaurant review. You can read part 1 here. Turners is a Michelin starred restaurant located on Harborne High Street and we attended on a Saturday night which is when only the tasting menu is available to order.
I’m going to let the food speak for itself, to a large extent, as I got some lovely pictures of the dishes and the cuisine does look stunning in its own right.
We loved this mackerel dish (pictured above). Mackerel is a favourite fish of both of us anyway and it was teamed with fresh, succulent fruits that provided just the right amount of acidity to balance the oily fish.
Not every dish pleased us. My companion didn’t care for a liver based starter dish and I wasn’t keen on the pickled vegetable accompaniment to one of the main courses. However, as he doesn’t like liver and I don’t like pickles, perhaps it’s not surprising that we weren’t wowed by these dishes.
There were no complaints when it came to dessert though. This lovely, light souffle certainly hit the spot. And there were more good things to come from the pastry section with this eyecatching finale taking pride of place.
Overall we really enjoyed our visit to Turners Restaurant. It’s a small restaurant though and I think better suited to parties with few people as the intimate size of the building lendes itself to smaller groups.
I would recommend choosing a bottle of wine rather than going for the wine flight. We did this and had no regrets. It helps keep the cost down and if you choose wisely, you can find a wine that we take you through the evening.
