      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Excellent restaurant, really original meals, good value too!

      "I'm like a one-eyed cat, peeping in a seafood store" Bill Haley and the Comets!

      This is the quote behind this restaurant/brasserie in truro, Cornwall. I've been to this restaurant twice in the last 3 or 4 weeks, once just as a random tryout, second as an organised meal for my mother's birthday.

      When I first went into the restaurant we were greeted by a very friendly waiter, who made us feel immediately welcome. We sat down, and had a look at the extensive drinks menuu - there were cocktails, draught beers, mocktails, soft drinks, a large selection of wine and champagne, as well as some comedy shooters. Examples...

      ELTON JOHN - Butterscotch schnaps and Baileys

      AMY WINEHOUSE - Tequila, tobasco, and white sambuca

      MICHAEL JACKSON - Kahlua and baileys

      I had a couple of beers, just to be boring! Onto the food, largely a fish restaurant - I had the "One Eyed Cat Bouillabaise" - seafood (mussels, prawns, scallops) in a rich tomato sauce, served with some fresh bread. Truly divine - very nice mix, not a big meal, but just the right amount of quality cooked food. My partner had mussels in a coconut and lime sauce, served with fries (smelt good!!) Other items on offer were the surf n turf, various burgers, sandwiches and light options, mussels in a variety of sauces, small tapas selections, and lots more nice tasty mains.

      On my second visit the service wasn't quite as good - which weas strange because it was the same man - we were seated after a couple of minutes waiting, and when offered desserts we were after forgotten about! My mother had mussels in a classic mariniere sauce, for the first time - and she loved them - very barve! My partner again had mussels in a Cornish Rattler (type of cider) sauce, again very nice. I had the Surf 'N' Turf. Not the biggest meal, but the steak was cooked to perfection, and I never have had a scallop so big and fresh. The sauce was wonderful too. Came with herbed potatoes, rather than traditional fries. More classy and a slightly different take on the classic fries or onion rings etc.

      There is an evening menu between the hours of 5pm and 7pm, a 2 or 3 course meal is available for £12.00 and £15.00- respectively. Otherwise there are tapas dishes for around £3 or £4 each, sandwiches for around £6, main meals for between £8 and £16.95 (this is the surf 'n' turf). A bit more expensive perhaps than your average restaurant but I think it is worth paying that little bitn extra for the food you get.

      All in all we had an excellent time - shame about the service on the second time - must have been an off day - but the food definitely made up for it.
