We can spin the sun around

Sometimes you just need to treat yourself. On Saturday the girls and I decided to head to Aurora restaurant in Nottingham for a well deserved meal and a few glasses of wine. Having never been to Aurora before, we didn't know what to expect but the menu sounded delicious and at around £20 for three courses, we couldn't pass it up. After oohing and aahing upon entry to the restaurant, we sat down and looked over the menus while we caught up on recent gossip.

As it was Valentine's weekend, Emma had bought us all a little present each to celebrate friendship and singledom. She handed out a small package each so we wouldn't know what we were opening. All of us had a different necklace with a literary quotation related to it. Such a cute personal touch. I'm still wearing my necklace.

After the excitement of presents and glaring jealously at all of the food surrounding us, we ordered our meals and then ate each course almost in silence because it was so delicious!

Beef Carpaccio, Blue Cheese with Pomegranate Salsa
Red Pepper & Vine Tomato Soup, Basil Foam, Rarebit Cheese Crouton

Seared Scallops, Salmon Mousse Ravioli on Buttered Leeks, Candied Lemon & Citrus cream

 ‘Surf & Turf’, Baby Vine Toms, Hand Cut Chips, Rocket Salad, Balsamic Glaze
Sea bass, Herb Mash, Lemon Scented Spinach, Confit Tomato & Hollandaise
Raspberry Cocktail Eton Mess
Bitter Chocolate Fondant, Praline, Cerise cream

Sorry for the poor quality photos, I only had my phone so had to rely on taking snaps with that every now and again. I must be the most irritating person to eat at a restaurant with! We finished our meals with a big smile on our faces and headed off to a few cocktails bars for the evening. I'll definitely be heading back to Aurora again and spreading the word. I couldn't believe how well priced it was for such high quality food.

If you want to check out the restaurant then here's the website: Aurora. Enjoy!
