Analysis:
(Be forewarned that since I eat almost everything in sight, I might be the worst food critic in town. Heh.)

Tried their supposedly award winning Seafood Platter, which came with generous portions of tiger prawns, mussels, deep fried calamari, fish fillet, chips and raisin yellow rice. Though the prawn was a little bland in taste, overall, the quality of the food served was excellent. The texture of the calamari was just right, not tough and rubbery as I’ve tasted before. The mussels was just so succulent and juicy. The sweet raisin rice also went quite well with the other stuff, the fish especially. And I particularly liked the way the food came…get this, it was served in a huge wok/pan. Very unique indeed. The meal I ate also came with the soup of the day (it was Clam Chowder day) and their signature drink (tried the Kola Fizz and some Passion Fruity thingy) The soup was slightly diluted for me, but the much of the taste was retained, so no complaints. Drinks were not too fantastic, just average.

In terms of ambience, they had most of the decor right: shark here, fishing pole there, lifeboat on the wall, etc. One could choose to sit outside or inside. Both has its own appeal and the lighting gave sufficient light for an enjoyable and romantic meal.

Service in particular was not quite up to mark though. Firstly, they forgot to serve the main course with the three fishy dip sauces. Though they did try to make it up with some minties after I paid the bill, I think. And then they didn’t have anyone opening the main door as the customer left. Minor grouches I guess but I believe there should always be room for improvement.

Conclusion:
If you love western-styled seafood, Fish & Co. is definitely a place worth checkin’ out.
