Latino-fish restaurant with good food and friendly service

Rather confusingly, Waterside restaurant has become one with Latino House. When the weather is too warm to sit outside near the ice-packed selection of fresh fish, you can sit among those after South American bites and flamenco-inspired paintings. The menu however, is incredibly straight-forward: choose from fish classics, sea bass, salmon, prawns, cod and most things that can be caught in a net (barring hair). The impressive service buoyed up (sea-based metaphors stop here…we promise) our spirits, with orders taken quickly, and the food didn’t disappoint.
Three giant prawns are included in the starter, while the ravioli is pleasingly small (no one likes to feel stuffed after the appetiser). The sea bass with wild rice is fleshy, with mustard sauce, while the black cod arrives with a surprise helping of sun-dried tomatoes and also tastes fantastic. The only thing is take a pashmina or a man-cardi to Waterside; if you’re indoors the AC tends to be whacked up, and if you’re outside, surely it must be winter. Latino-fish restaurant confused identity aside, this place boasts great food and friendly service, with a reasonable bill at the end.
