I recently dined at The Foodstore with a number of very good clients. I was a little worried about the name "Foodstore" - but don't be put off, this is no cheap takeaway joint, this is a first class restaurant. It was so good that most of us went back the following night! You can't say better than that can you?! The food was 5 star and service was excellent. Everything was very fresh and perfectly cooked, from seafood to steak, everyone was happy. I was particularly happy as Bluff Oysters were in season and I miss them terribly (now living in Melbourne). They were incredible! This restaurant is set around an open fully operating kitchen for all to see, and to top it off there are large flat screen TV's on the walls showing your meal being prepared live. To me this says they are very proud of their food and high standards, and deservedly so. The only negative, and my reason for just 4 stars (I would score it 4.9 if possible) is that the open kitchen unfortunately heats up the dining area and makes it very stuffy. On our second night we asked if the bi-fold doors could be opened, they could and were and the environment instantly became cooler and very pleasant. I think they should consider doing this every night. It is something that would out me off in the hight of summer. Overall though a wonderful experience. I should mention too that on the 2nd night it was one of my customers birthday so we started ordering shots from the bar, we were requesting all sorts of concoctions and impressively the bar staff were up to every one of them! Now what you would expect from a classy place like this. Well done!
