The picturesque harbour-side venue specialises in serving delicious fresh fish and lobster caught at the nearby pier. The menu changes seasonally and there’s a large wine list to match.
Inside, the restaurant carries the same vibe as the rooms, nautically-themed but less of the vibrant blue colours and more of a classic feel. It’s ideal for intimate dining, there are lovely tables by the window or booths if you’d prefer. The whole place was dimly lit with pretty candles placed on each table – not the ideal lighting for an Instagram post but very glam and sophisticated.
I opted for the set menu, three courses for €40 – ideal.
I began with melt-in-the-mouth scallops that left me almost drooling on my plate they were so tender.
The restaurant serves a wide range of sauces for the lobster to be cooked in, which I adore. My family went for a whiskey sauce while I opted for the good-ol’ white wine and butter sauce. There’s no better way to taste the juiciness of the meat than to keep the sauce plain and simple, and for me the flavour in the meat is what I look for in the lobster because it’s like nothing else.
To my delight, the lobster was everything I had hoped for. Light, sweet, fresh and flavoursome, I honestly had to take a minute after my first bite to appreciate how blessed I felt on that occasion.
