When your reality is better than your dreams, you cannot help it, but shed a few tears. That’s what happened to me on our way back home from Niagara Falls.
I’ve already written here that the most famous waterfall in the world was something that I was dreaming about since I was a little girl. I celebrated there my engagement with my fiance (back then) and we went to Niagara Falls for our honeymoon. Since we had to make a one day trip there this December, we wanted to make it a little bit more special since it’s such an important place for both of us.
After the whole day, we had dinner at the most amazing restaurant we’ve ever been to, Watermark Restaurant Fallsview. One reason is that it has panoramic views of both the American and Horseshoe Falls. Can it even get better?!
A Breathtaking View
The restaurant made a breathtaking impression on both of us. It is located on the 33rd floor at Hilton Hotel Niagara Falls. Even though it was getting darker outside, the view was amazing in person. All the Christmas lights and the Falls were so beautiful and colorful. It was spectacular! I couldn’t get enough of this vision.
The inside of the restaurant was so in my idea of a perfect interior design. I always like the combination of white and blue together, well, these are my favorite colors. In a different way, my favorite color is white and my husband’s blue, sky blue :). That being said, we were in our wonderland. It is very elegant and contemporary and of course, the beautiful white (!) poinsettias for the upcoming Christmas. I do like poinsettias a looot :).
When The Food Is Better Than Your Expectations
Oh my, these starters were the best I’ve ever had. I think I’ve already mentioned that I really like seafood. That’s why I went with Octopus Carpaccio and Calamari, which my hubby ordered, as well. The second option he chose was Shrimp Cocktail. He really enjoyed that there were three sauces to enjoy and not only one.
By our main dishes you can guess, that I’m more into potatoes and my hubby into the rice. I think it’s from the way and place we were raised in :). I chose Grilled Ontario Pork Chop, which make me want to have pork much more often in our home. My love ordered Roasted Hoisin-Glazed Cornish Hen. That was the first time he has hoisin sauce and now we’re in the search of it at the stores :). Both dishes were perfectly cooked and seasoned, which we appreciated a lot.
When it was time for a dessert, we were both pleasantly full, but it was hard to say no to something that looks and sounds so mouthwatering. Most of the time I go with something with chocolate, but I wanted to change it up a little. I asked for Strawberries & Lemon Cream Cake With Aged Balsamic and I have to tell you that this balsamic in there was a game changer :). My husband, on the other hand, chose Kaffir Lime Panna Cotta, Passion Fruit Gelee & Meringue. He had this for the very first time in his life, but said that if we ever are at Watermark Fallsview Restaurant, he’ll choose the same dessert again :).
On top of the amazing food and view, the customer service was very impressive. They were all very professional and mannerly.
When we got to the valet parking, I was looking back, because I still couldn’t believe if it’s true or I was just dreaming :). Having all these pictures here, I know that I was there with the love of my life and I will never forget that day. We were also very close to our date when we first met three years ago so it made it much more special.
