Cloudy Bay Fish Co.: Seafood, Westfield Sydney (25 Mar 2011)

The Sydney Room, Level 5, Westfield Sydney
Cnr Market and Castlereagh St Sydney NSW 2000

Quality at a price

I’ve visited the Cloudy Bay Fish Co on three occasions now and noticed on my most recent visit the menu seems to have evolved to include A tasting plate of all seafood ($19.50) which satisfies by desire to always try a bit of everything. My favourite item to date has been the quality and decent sized Prawn cocktail out of the four offerings. The texture and taste of the Ablacore tuna, braised with lemon mayonnaise and the Kingfish poached in verjuice seemed very similar to me. I wish they had more variety to choose from with three of the selections being fish. If they really want to call it a seafood tasting plate then I think other choices like mussels, scallops, oysters and octopus should be available in the mix — it’s more like a tasting plate of fish. The salad was fresh although the dressing was fairly flavourless for me if there was any at all.

PROS: Quality ingredients, Nice clean seating around if you can find some when busy
CONS: Expensive, Three of the four items are fish on the tasting plate. Limited variety of seafood, Small portions provided
MUST TRY: Prawn cocktail is pretty good, Next visit I might try fish and chips
