We revisited the Fat Snook during our annual visit to Cocoa. The redecorated interior is intimate, quirky, stylish and unobtrusive. We were shown to our table by Heath our waiter, who provided us with a professional commentary of the nuances and characteristics of each dish. This was beautifully done, and helped us to make informed choices about our courses whilst heightening our anticipation as to the quality of the food. - We were not disappointed.
We both opted for catch of the day. My partner selected number one and I selected number two. Both dishes were excellent, beautifully cooked and artistically presented. We chose a lovely Shiraz from the wine list which complemented our food perfectly. Although neither of us would normally opt for a desert, we succumbed to the key lime pie which was outrageously good!
This restaurant puts so much effort into the whole dining experience, that it is important to not overlook the small, but important touches that make it so good. Firstly, the waiting staff excel at welcoming customers and explaining the menu and its individual dishes in an engaging and professional manner. Secondly, the tiny bowls of soup offered as an aperitif are a nice gesture which sets the tone for further courses. Lastly, and importantly the attentiveness of waiting staff is praiseworthy. However, on both occasions when have visited the restaurant, a waiter removed the plate of one of our party when not everyone else was finished. - Being from the UK we found this practice odd and uncomfortable as we do not expect that in a high quality restaurant.
The restaurant is not cheap and is quite expensive. However, we think that it is fairly priced for the quality of food and the very high standard of service.
Well done all at the Fat Snook. We look forward to visiting again next year!
