My girlfriend and I recently celebrated our four-year anniversary at Kost, and it was an unforgettable experience. We had initially planned to enjoy our meal on the patio, but the windy weather had other plans. The staff went above and beyond to ensure our special night wasn't affected, quickly accommodating us with cozy indoor seating. From the moment we arrived, the service was impeccable. To celebrate our anniversary, the restaurant graciously offered us complimentary champagne, setting the perfect tone for the evening. The attention to detail and the genuine warmth from the staff made us feel incredibly special. The food was absolutely delicious, and each dish was a delightful blend of flavors and presentation. As a surprise finale, they presented us with a complimentary dessert that was not only beautiful but also delectable, making our celebration even sweeter. Kost truly exceeded our expectations, turning what could have been a dampened evening into a memorable celebration. We can't recommend this place enough for anyone looking to mark a special occasion with outstanding service and exquisite cuisine. Thank you, Kost for making our anniversary so perfect!

About the restaurant
Ladurée is a world-renowned French luxury patisserie, founded in Paris in 1862. The acclaimed house rose into fame with their exquisite selection of viennoiseries and pastries – most notably, however, for their creation of the macaron.

Described as a biscuit with a delicate and crisp shell with a smooth ganache or jam filling, they come in a variety of classical and creative flavours. Ladurée’s macarons are often not mixed with more than two or three flavours to give each macaron a more pronounced taste.

Accompanying the Boutique, their traditional Parisian tea room offers irresistible culinary delights in a setting inspired by historic France, allowing Ladurée to extend their unique experience of the French art of living.

I brought my 2 granddaughters for a special outing to this cute little pastry shop/restaurant. The staff treated us very well and were attentive. Many of the items on the menu were for a more sophisticated palate than a 3 and 6 year old have, so they directed me to the more appropriate treats for them. They loved the tea service and fancy pastries and took their time choosing the just the right macaron to take away. It was a memorable teatime. Would be even more fun if I was with an adult and could enjoy more of the options. This place is special.

The location was easy to find and being a holiday, parking was easy to find close by. The exterior and interior of Neverland was very attractive and seating was well spaced that you didn’t feel crammed in. We arrive a couple minutes before our reservation and we were greeted warmly and shown to our seats right away. The waitress assigned to our table was very nice to work with and explained the menu and other options available to us. We ordered and our beverage and food arrived promptly. The presentation of the Traditional Tea items was very pretty and appetizing to look at. The food tasted delicious. One drawback was the amount of food proved for the price. We have had several High Tea opportunities and this one was a bit over priced for what you got. The noise level was another factor that made it difficult to hear each other. Not just the other guests, but the noise of the open kitchen. In summary, I would recommend Neverland for its food and beverages, but would hope they added a few more items to the Traditional tea to make it more financially worthwhile.
