Review of the Seafood Restaurant from earlier this year

I was pleased to find that the service had greatly improved from my previous visit, as i felt it didn't quite compliment the outstanding food previously. This time there was more discretion and passion about the menu.

I had Quail with onion compote, grapes and onion rosti was starter, beautifully presented and an ideal size portion wise. Main course, Cod with chorizo risotto and baby leeks - again nicely presented and a filling size. Great flavours cvoming through there. Onto dessert, probably the best course for me, Valhrona chocolate delice with cointreau jelly, mandarin sorbet and oranges. The delice was outstanding and was greatly complimented by the flavours around it. The presentation made it look appetising and wasn't trying to be pretentious, which can often be a fault in fine dining establishments.

The only thing that let it down was there was only three bottles in stock of the beer we wanted. Although the waiter explained they had went through a lot the previous night and apologised several times, it was disapointing.

It was a pity it was so quiet, probably because of the weather, but it kind of gave the place an eery atmosphere - a pity because the menu is such good value. Strongly recommended
