The Belmont Tavern (aka Silks) is a really nice looking place on the inside. Outside, it looks a little dodgy, but once you are inside there is a very nice restaurant section, which included table service, and a waiter that did everything with one hand behind his back. Our group felt a little out of place, though, as we seemed to be about half the age of the rest of the patrons.
Minimal. Actually, there was only one vegetarian main. A vegetable tart, and it was $21.50. Which was over budget. All of their meals were over budget, which really surprised me. There was the usual sides, as well as a Soup of the day, which was a reasonable price. It was potato and leak, which was vegetarian. However, I went for a creamy fettuccine and mushroom meal, without the chicken. It was, like everything else, over budget at $21.50.
It was nice enough. I was quite hungry, and I enjoyed it. That said, it wasn't $21.50 worth of food. It wasn't amazing at all. Overall, it was a bit bland. I feel like I could have made something better myself and saved myself a lot of money.
I wish I could comment on the soup, but I didn't try it. The garlic bread was cheesy and tasty, though. I guess, I wouldn't recommend this place for dinner as it's a bit more expensive for most mains. The options are also very limited, unless you want to eat only side dishes.
1 point per vegetarian choice (max 3): 1 - 0.5 for the over budget food, and 0.5 for the soup of the day, which may or may not be vegetarian
Quality of meal (1-3): 1.5 - A bit bland, but not horrible
Value for money (1-3): 1 - Everything was over budget
X-factor (0-1): 0.5 - Whilst we seemed to be the over young people around, I'm giving them points as it was nice enough inside, and the waiter was very professional. However, I don't want to give them full points, as two of my friends ordered a dessert, and they were told they didn't have any left. This would have been fine if it has been at the time they ordered, but the waitress had to come back twice, one for each dessert, to inform us they were out.
Guess I will have to drink my calories tonight...
