We arrived at our pre-booked table at 7.15pm Monday 2 Dec 2013. Finding some where to park was a nightmare. Although there were parking spaces available, once you pull up and looked at the street sign-it would invariably state 'RESIDENT PERMIT HOLDERS ONLY 5 to 10pm'. That was no use to us since we booked for 7.15pm. We drove down several streets only to find the same sign in each street and road. The High Street that the restaurant was situated on definitely was not motorist friendly. Finally, after driving up and down for 15 minutes we spotted a space just enough to fit a car and hurried to the restaurant.
The restaurant was within a converted church and had full of character with lots of carved wood in the décor and building.
The manager took us to a table and later a friendly waitress took our order. We ordered the 'Fruit of the Loch' which consisted of: Lobsters, crevettes, and langoustines starter for 4 people there were 4 oysters as well which we requested to be done in Tempura batter with 6 extra oysters. The Platter came out on a bed of ice and the shell fish were all cold. Not quite what we expected. I like my food hot. At least the oysters were 'hot'. The oysters tasted great.
My son ordered Seafood Tagliatelle and his girl friend had the Scottish Rope-Grown Mussels whilst me and my wife had the Seafood Grill: Scottish salmon fillet, gilt-head bream, Scottish scallops, whole king prawn and Scottish rope-grown mussels, with new potatoes, spinach and chilli & coriander butter. The main course were all cooked to perfection and the bottle of Chablis was a fine accompaniment to the meal.
Overall, the meal was flavoursome and tasty.
However, at times it seems that the chef's were over-stretched with cooking the meals on time and delivering them out to us the hungry diners. At one stage the manager was clearly upset with the chef's delays and had to enter the open plan kitchen to take charge of the orders and help out.
If you do not mind having to find some where to park your car or if you were to take a taxi or walk there, then it is a good place for Seafood.
