my best friend and I came here on a very wet and windy September afternoon to celebrate our birthdays. The water taxi rides over and back were great fun. The restaurant was really well laid out and very atmospheric. I loved the pictures for sale and on our table was a little chalkboard saying "Happy Birthday".
We had a corner seat that gave us great views of the Estuary. Outside we watched water skiers, boats, Cormorants while inside we were warm and cosy. The seats had blankets we could use if we were chilly from the taxi ride.
I had Chowder for a starter and Mussels in Cider and Bacon for my main. Beck had the Deep Fried Baby Squid for starter (the Oyster Mayonnaise was heavenly) and Chowder for main. . This was paired by the most delicious Muscadet that balanced the fish beautifully. Pudding was a Tart Tatin and Salted Caramel Brownie, these came out with candles and the wait staff singing happy birthday to us. What a lovely friendly touch.
My only criticism is this: I wanted everything on the starter menu, and would happily have had an Assiette for my starters.
We have already planned out trip back - and it doesn't matter what the weather is like. The windy weather only added to the adventure and the experience.
