Time Out Says
It’s light, nautical themed and very stylishly done. It overlooks the pristine beach at Nation Riviera so we can gaze at the blue waters of the Gulf from our spot by the window.
We start with the spicy salmon maki roll, and it’s dramatically presented on a bamboo stand. The neatly packed rolls are filled with wonderful pink fish, creamy avocado, and a hot sauce that means it lives up to its name. Coated in bright green tobiko, each bite contains layers of textures and flavours which slowly come through one after the other.
It’s a super dish, and although the miso soup is also pleasant, it seems pretty basic compared to the sensational sushi.
Next we have the pan-roasted sea bass served with coconut chutney, carrot purée and a tumeric butter sauce. It looks like a work of art, and the delicate fish tastes so fresh we think it must have just been plucked from the sea. The chutney adds a bit of bite and interest, while the sweet creamy carrot is pure luxury.
Meanwhile, the roast beef is a high quality cut of meat (in fact all the ingredients taste like the very best that money can buy). The truffle-infused sweet potato mash goes perfectly with the tender meat, and we also have a scattering of colourful organic edamame and fresh peas.
It’s all a real treat.
