I can't believe it's been 18 months since my last visit to the Pelican. It was my nephew's birthday so we had ten of us at the table, which was just a little too big for their private room. I started with the oysters Rockefeller,...More

The rainbow trout was okay, but missing the cauliflower. The scallop dish was very heavy on the gnocchi and overly rich with just few odd small tomatoes. Fish with halibut and chips were all right too, but nothing memorable.
