Overall we had a lovely evening here. We went on the BYO night so not only did we save significantly on the wine but we also drank what we liked even if (horror) it did not go 100% with the fish.
We opted for the tasting menu which was a bit of a mixed bag.
Scallops (raw) were great. Interesting flavours and a great way to try raw scallops.
Lobster risotto also fantastic - great flavours and I could have eaten 4 or 5 times the amount as it was so good.
The two mains in the menu were mackerel and bass - these felt like fillers because it is supposed to be a fish restaurant and while they were executed well they were not very exciting or very large. I know it is a (6 course) tasting menu but never the less they were little bigger than canapes and certainly not distinguishable in size from the "starters).
The pineapple dessert was great - two very tart/acidic fruits (pineapple and passion fruit) toned down to perfection. The chocolate and lime tart was dry and disappointing - a small tart served as part of a tasting menu should be more exciting than this and it was a disappointing way to finish the meal.
Overall I enjoyed the almost 4 hour dinner, and left content but not full (good and a bad thing).
Adjust the portion sizes slightly and remove the tart and the menu is a winner.
Staff were generally top notch.
