We went for dinner during opening week. The restaurant is near the water and will be popular in summer when it opens up its foldable glass doors.
You can tell the waitstaff are new and still learning as knowledge of the food and menu was limited.
The decor inside is elegant with an open kitchen. There's a see-through glass fridge with hanging beef and ribs inside for all too see. A strange-looking water pump jug is on each table. Push down to pump out the water. It's a quirky little thing but gets annoying after about a minute.
I picked the chowder as the entree. Coming back from a holiday in the USA and trying San Francisco's famous clam chowder, I was really craving it on a cold winter's night.
It was nicer than I thought it would be with fresh clams and fish, and was flavourful but not too creamy.
Both of the mains came with our choice of side dishes
Service - younger waitstaff are friendly and still learning. Wine glasses weren't taken away when both of us weren't drinking wine. After finishing his beer, my partner had to wait quite a while before someone asked if he'd like another one. I think this was the owner, a smooth operator who took away the wine glasses, finished plates of food and offered another beer.
I'll definitely be going back to try more dishes!
