Head Chef Steve Smith
Awarded a Michelin star at 24, Steve Smith's culinary pedigree couldn't be better. With experience working with Jean-Christophe Novelli and at two Michelin star restaurant Heathcotes with Paul Heathcote, Steve Smith has developed a cooking style described as 'full-on rarefied dining' by the Good Food Guide.
Producing exquisitely precise dishes that add an edge to island produce, Steve Smith's signature is to give traditional ingredients a tantalising twist. Look out for some startling but delicious flavour combinations from lobster and white chocolate to teaming scallops with apple and truffle.
