I dined at Aurora for the first time on Saturday evening having heard both good and bad reviews from friends. I have to say it was a delight the sun was setting and there was a real buzz about the place. It certainly didn't feel like Ipswich with modern decor and high end furnishings. Downstairs hired for a private party so we had pre dinner cocktails on the boat shaped bar upstairs, they we nice and the chairs are very cool!. For our food I had the Halibut and my partner had the Skate Wing- both were fantastic, starters were good and the portions acceptable. For dessert I plumped for the Rhubarb and Custard, with my other half having the Cheesecake. We were impressed with both although my girlfriend (who had dined before) said the previous apple cheesecake was better.
All in all we were very impressed with Aurora. it's one of the more expensive restaurants along the waterfront but the quality shows. The cocktails were well made, the food was impressive and the waitresses although young were very polite, personable and all seemed happy. We were slightly disappointed not to be able to use the downstairs areas and hope this isn't something that occurs often but certainly will dine again and wouldn't hesitate in recommending.
