Out of the Blue Review

Every fishing port should have a simple waterfront bistro like this one, serving the best seafood (the owner won't open up if there's no fresh-caught seafood available—which is almost never). Lobster, scallops, and crayfish are specialties, but also expect turbot, black sole, plaice, brill, monkfish, and even the humble pollack on the daily blackboard menu. The duo of French chefs put a modern twist on seafood classics, perhaps pan-seared scallops flambéed in Calvados, with pineapple and chili salsa, or grilled lemon sole fillet with toasted almond and lemon butter. There's a short but well-chosen wine list, and basic dessert selection. The bargain "Fish Deal," with two or three choices per course, is served 5:30 to 6:30 on weekdays.

    Well worth the wait

    So busy we had to wait 3 days for a dinner booking. The seafood was exquisite.The very modest exterior is in contrast to the highest standards of food and service in a most pleasing ambiance.

    Very popular--must reserve. We made a reservation when we arrived in town for 2 nights later. It was definitely worth waiting for. A small, rather plain restaurant, but what wonderful seafood. We had the scallops and the potato encrusted monkfish and both were exceptional. Add to that a fabulous creme brulee and chocolate covered strawberries, and some great wine, and you have a wonderful evening.
