lfinfo - Re ordering off menu, there were a small number of things available - chicken, steak etc, but generally I chose off the menu of the day and did not pay too much attention. However, I am a fussy eater (according to my husband, anyway!) and when I asked for small changes to be made to a set dish, this was done.
I am sure that if you wanted something different, that would not be a problem - usually we were given the evening menus at lunchtime to enable us to choose wine, so it would have been possible to order off menu at that time. A particularly memorable meal for me was duck, flambeed in Grand Marnier - delicious!
Have a lovely time.
