Michael Caines at ABode Canterbury

High Street, Canterbury, Kent, CT1 2RX
An excellent restaurant, run under the guiding hand of celebrity chef Michael Caines.

The chef here, Toby Lin, runs a tight ship and a high level of standards are maintained.

While the menu follows the seasons, starters such as 'Parmesan Gnocchi with Black Truffle Purée'; 'Lasagne of Rabbit with Celeriac, Pancetta, Wholegrain Mustard and Tarragon Sauce' and 'Hand-dived Scallops with Wild Mushroom Duxelle, Celeriac Purée, Apple and Watercress' set the style.

Perhaps to be followed by the likes of 'Asparagus Risotto with Fresh Parmesan'; 'Roulade of Skate Wing, stuffed with Lemon Thyme Mousse, Roasted Shallots, Swiss Chard, Braised Chestnuts, Pancetta and Girolles' and 'Fillet of Beef Rossini, Port-roasted Onions, Provençal Croutons and a Truffle Butter Sauce'.

If you have room, there are impressive-looking desserts, such as 'Passion Fruit Soufflé with Caramelised Banana Parfait and Banana Disc Nougatine' and 'Trio of Crème Brulée - liquorice, vanilla & pistachio' to tempt you. While they also offer an excellent selection of British farmhouse cheeses.

Their set lunch menu, consists of a grazing menu, and although less sophisticated, but offers very good value.
