Fodor's Expert Review Azure
Although Azure's blue-and-white nautical-theme decor may feel a bit outdated to some, the restaurant's jaw-dropping sea and mountain views are reason enough to come experience the mostly inspired menu. Signature dishes like the crayfish-and-prawn cocktail, beef Stroganoff, and rice pudding have a classic old-school bent and are divinely comforting. More contemporary dishes like the prawn dhal in a coriander yogurt with pineapple salsa, or pork belly with a mirin glaze are true winners. Though appetizers and desserts are generally excellent, the mains can be somewhat less consistent. However, with this level of exquisite service, fairly reasonable à la carte prices, and the truly stunning setting, diners are in for a treat overall. Come when you can enjoy the view, and inquire about specials like the "wine journey" or family Sunday lunches. Ask for a window table.
