In the absence of our son I took my husband for a Fathers' Day lunch at Loch Fyne in Covent Garden. I had received an email advertising the tempting selection of specials available for this particular occasion and decided we should take a risk and give Loch Fyne what was going to be a final shot. Previously, we had had a very disappointing meal at a branch outside of London but from the moment I rang ahead to say that we were delayed in traffic I was made to feel good about our forthcoming dining experience. We were warmly welcomed on arrival, given a choice of tables and an introduction to who was going to serve us. Shortly after Darius arrived at our table to explain the specials menu and give us the opportunity to order drinks. At no time were we hustled to make a decision. The music playing in the background was at an appropriately low level and very soothing.
I chose 6 plump and juicy oysters as a starter and they were served with a full array of condiments. My husband had lobster bisque and pronounced it delicious. We both opted for surf and turf as a main course. It was not cheap but the rib eye on the bone with half a lobster tail was an absolute treat. I asked for my steak to be rare whereas himself wanted his cremated and each were cooked perfectly to order. The peashoot garnish was a fresh addition and the portion of French fries just right if a little pale. Our choice of Chablis was suitably crisp and light and the jug of tap water elegantly presented. We had no room for pudding or coffee and after a visit to the lovely clean loo we departed feeling very replete. We gathered that there is a new regime in operation at Loch Fyne Covent Garden and for us it delivered in spades.
