Been a while since we have had lunch in the New Lewis Restaurant and my goodness we had missed it. Familiar with the staff and management from past, seem to be some changes in faces but definetely not in standard; obviously due to fine staff training; Efficient, friendly, courteous and imaculately presented in white shirt, tie and smart burgundy aprons. Also all the chefs on display in open kitchen with crisp whites and traditional chefs hats working like a well oiled machine, head chef assembling dishes on pass in full view of everyone, nothing to hide !!
My partner held back on starter but my mussels, a personal favourite combined with the addition of Chorizo was sensational, supplied with a soup spoon to finish off pretty much a second course of mussel/Wine and chorizo was sublime. Efficient time break to take on main. My partner with Chilli chicken cooked to perfection with double cooked chips, only complaint portion to big. My Sea trout with tempaura fennel and cauliflower puri was a reminder of the same course at the Witchery, Edinburgh and as Fine if not better. A meal of this standard at the price was outstanding. We wont leave it as long for our next visit.
