So that's what it is. Go for drinks and to chill out but not to get a full dinner.
The drinks are good and creative. The food is admittedly very nicely done. Perfectly grilled and fresh. The madagascar vanilla ice cream in guinness is truly a stroke of genius. Get a bit of finger food to go with it and you will be a happy person.
It bills itself as a no frills place that serves quality seafood for good value. No frills it is, and the seafood is of good quality but the portions are somewhat small and not really what I consider "value". It's frankly a little pricey for the (small) portions they serve. Ordered the full menu for 2 (for the wife and I) and was still a bit hungry until I polished off ALL of the vermicelli.
Comments on the individual dishes:
Vermicelli- This was surpringly tasty. Fill yourself up with it because the rest of dinner will leave you hungry
Grilled squid- Very tasty and grilled to perfection. But really? would it have taken that much more effort to remove the innards?
Clams in white wine sauce- Again very yummy- but a bit small as a portion for 2. I spent dinner wondering if they had forgotten the second bowl.
Scallop- Yes. ONE scallop ( per person). Very good very yummy.. but one scallop?? Again spent dinner wondering if they had forgotten to give us the second portion.
African "lobster"- This is a prawn. A very large prawn, but still a prawn. Maybe in terms of taxonomy it's correctly a lobster, but my unenlightened brain (that expected a lobster) was not impressed when I was served this. It was again very nicely done, which was its saving grace.
Barramundi- I'm not sure about this dish. The skin was very crispy and nicely done- but the flesh felt very slightly mushy. I'm very sensitive to the freshness of fish so maybe I'm being picky ( my wife felt it was just fine) but I'm not ordering this again.
All in all a good experience, but I wont be be back for dinner. Possibly for drinks and a plate of that grilled squid.
