I tried the An Bord based on a previous reveiw and I was curious about the nautical theme it mentioned.
The dining area is one big area with a central island bar shaped like a boat.
Nautical themed restaurants I've been at in the past usually have nets and all other form of antique relics and artifacts from the sea faring world. However, everything in the "An Bord" is brand new and the Nautical decorations are minimal. So on a cold March evening, the ambience was not cozy.
Based on the previous review, I went for the fiserman platter (can't remember the exact name), with a lobster soup to start.
Soup was excellent
Fisherman's platter was very HUGE in size. A large square plate that was packed very full. When you get a plate like that it's hard not to react.....wow!!
The fisherman's platter was tasty, but greasy. Where I expected fish to be grilled, it was either fried by itself or fried in batter. What happens to greassy food?......it gets limp and mushy over the course of your meal.
note, I did experience greasy fish meals at other restaurants while in Wilhelmshaven, so this style of cooking could be typical of the region.
Service was very efficient.
