The first in a regular series of brief restaurant reviews
First visit on Thursday evening to Tugboat on the Bay for a couple of years. Chosen on the spot as wanted to get out of the CBD for once.
The view of the harbour, as always, is a great setting for dinner. Being on an actual boat not as big a thrill as when I was 12!
The menu is seafood orientated and I had a seafood bisque followed by seafood risotto. Companion had fries and the kumara and leek soup.
Food was nice, but not superb. Nothing wrong, just nothing original. Service was the same – good, but not great. The wine (Villa Maria reserve) was excellent and cost for 2 was $75 which isn’t bad value.
