Service was good, we were attended well by an 'old friend' who used to work at another establishment. Our familiarity added to a relaxed and amusing night out.
The cocktails were inventive and well made - not many places know how to make a decent martini, my test of quality. My partners concoction was served in a teacup on a glass stem - a nice touch and a tasty drink.
As our waiter advised this is definitely a 'fish' restaurant not a seafood restaurant. Though the usual scallop and oysters were available, no mixed platters or tacky prawn cocktails, but that's not a loss.
Our entrees were tidily made and expressed a simplicity which allowed the seafood ingredients to shine through. The main fish portions were generous, well cooked and fresh.
A couple of our orders were wrong - veges instead of the salad and cooked scallops instead of the raw I was looking forward to savouring. (but maybe I wasn't clear in ordering...)
Not exciting dining, but certainly some of the better cooked seafood I've eaten.
The venue doesn't quite seem to have found it's niche, cocktail bar or high quality seafood...or a bit of both?
But as a dining experience, there was something missing, probably more the decor and fitout than anything else. The big octopus picture over the servery was out of kilter with the surrounds, and you can't order any octopus !
If I specifically wanted a nice piece of fish, or a quiet drink with a great selection of good cocktails, I'd certainly go again.
