First up....... book in advance! We we’re staying in Moeraki over Easter weekend and naively thought we could walk-in and get a table for diner, how wrong were we. Fortunately for us they had received a cancellation as I was talking with the staff, after a few moments they asked us to wait for few minutes to make sure they could fit us in, that’s when Fleur arrived, and after a few words with her staff we were seated.
We started by sharing the mussels as a starter, they were divine. They were a good size, not the big fat ones, but smaller juicy ones. We all agreed that if that was the precursor to the mains we’re in for a treat, and we’re weren’t disappointed!
Mains followed, our son ordered the trio of fish, as did my wife, our daughter had the seafood chowder, with a (very large) side order of vegetables. Myself, I had the seafood hotpot. All of the mains were very generous in portion size, and what we feel was value for money.
When the wait staff came to remove our plates she was surprised to see the clean plates, but there was no way we we’re leaving anything behind, even to the point that my wife and daughter both turned down desert. Our comment to the staff when asked if we would like desert was we wanted to savior the flavors of the seafood in our mouths, rather than tainting them with desert, she applauded this.
WE WILL BE BACK!!!
