Food

Share tasty and colourful tapas; tender calamari tubes; buttery, garlicky mussels and grilled sardines; spicy crumbed prawns dynamite; and tuna tataki marinated in soya and ginger. The preparation, dressings and sauces are classic and simple, expressing the fresh, natural flavours and textures of the fruits of the sea. The seafood is succulently grilled from well-priced butterflied Argentinian wild prawns and seafood platters to a gourmet spin on line-fish specials of the day chalked up on a blackboard.

For mains, signature dishes tempt with a popular seafood jambalaya pasta or curry; or a well-seasoned medley of calamari, prawns, mussels and line-fish in savoury rice. The food is simply plated and served on tables laid with brown paper sheets. No fuss or frills included.

The plain cream and salsa sauces that come with the platters are rather bland – so spicier palates should ask for lemon butter, garlic or peri peri on the side. Carnivores should opt for the pulled duck risotto or sirloin from the grill, while vegetarians will enjoy a gourmet spin on arancini, mushroom risotto and an aromatic veg curry.

For dessert, share decadent homemade chocolate truffles that burst in the mouth like mini fondants.

Drinks

A good selection of affordable wines by carafe and bottle for every pocket from a walk-in wine cellar – or beers, cocktails and spirits from the long bar.

Service

Attentive, but haphazard when busy. Make sure you get the right order.

Ambience

This casual, light and airy venue is set in one of the old homes on Harfield’s village restaurant row, with a great broekie-lace terrace for summertime eating – and fabulous large seafood murals.
