The Joondalup Resort is a 70 room resort located in Connolly which boasts an impressive golf course, three restaurants and conference/ball facilities.
We were presented with three courses on share plates.The food was top notch - everything was delicious and beautifully prepared! Most of the dishes were gluten free or could be gluten free which is great news for the Coeliacs and people with gluten intolerance.
We were seated outside overlooking the pool. After the long (30+ minute) drive from my place to Joondalup, it kind of felt like I had escaped on a mini-holiday getaway. It was quite and tranquil around the resort... the sort of place you feel you need to speak using a hushed voice and where a big hat, sunglasses and a cocktail would not seem out of place!
I confess, my eyes apparently overtook all other sensory organs, most noticeably my ears and I didn't listen to the description of the dishes. I have been able to match most things with the menu, which unfortunately has been put on the website as a jpg file and is a bit hard to read (apologies for any mistakes).
