The Fisherman’s Wharf, Lavelle Road, Bangalore
The restaurant is in 2 levels. We were ushered in to the air conditioned space at level 1. The Goan ambience is recreated here, very modest setting and not overdone fro any angle. Buffet spread is good here priced at 499/- with taxes. The chef treated us to a spread of his choice which was thoughtfully and excellently presented. Drinks, both cocktails and mocktails, and starters came in, in good speed and in ample quantity.
The bloggers’ meet at restaurants are fun and interesting. Nobody is in a hurry to eat but there is a rush to click and frame it undisturbed. We try to capture it from different angles and keep passing the dish till everybody has their fill of photographing it. It would be a crime to disturb the setting before every blogger has taken the photos. After this activity the digging in with spoons and forks start. The food disappears in no time. The chef made it a point to serve second and sometimes third helpings too.
Fisherman’s Wharf is well known for its sea food dishes, but there is equally good number of veg dishes too. Each dish had authentic Goan taste and didn’t look like any hybrid preparation. The service is good and refills are quick. I have made a small album of the dishes here on my FB page and I am so glad it has crossed more than 100 likes! The credit for this is the team’s talent in culinary art, their presentation of food. It is FLAWLESS! Many a time I have been left wondering how best to capture it so that it looks tempting and there is that urge to grab it off the screen.
The second floor of this restaurant has the bar and open air dining facilities. This section has a good festive look with beautiful decorative pieces. There is comfortable seating arrangements and good attention from waiters too. We had our dessert here.
Thank you ‘The Fisherman’s Wharf’ team for the good time I had there!
