Nominated for Best Seafood

At Seafood Market, as the name would suggest, diners can choose fresh seafood from a display, before having it cooked with a choice of sauces and butters. The venue has a strong aquatic theme, right down to the wavy blue carpet, which gives the restaurant a bit of a dated look. There is a wide range of fish and shellfish for diners to choose from, and the large lobster tanks span the entire back wall of the market area. Fish is prepared in an Asian style, so you can expect plenty of flavour in the sauces, and dishes are complemented with a choice of noodles, stir-fried vegetables or potatoes, making for a hearty meal. Staff are on hand at the fish counter to make suggestions with regard to portion size and sauces, which is very helpful.
