Review on Blue Fish Café & Restaurant
On the site of a legendary Portland café called the 'Dap & General', the Blue Fish is something of a labour of love for Luciano Da Silva and family. The restaurant occupies the upper level of a sturdy seventeenth-century building fashioned from the famous local stone and it provides great views over Chesil Beach.
Luciano changes his menus every few weeks and there's always plenty of locally landed fish on offer - as you might expect. A typical evening menu might open with crayfish tart au gratin or sweetcorn and lavender galette with thyme and sherry vinegar dressing, while main courses might include scallops with black pudding, red gurnard with chorizo, baby fennel and crispy polenta or braised shoulder of venison with celeriac purée. To conclude, there are exotic desserts such as guava bavarois or chocolate and mango clafoutis with mandarin sorbet. Note that opening times vary seasonally, so ring in advance to avoid disappointment.
