Review on Seafood Ristorante

New owners of The Seafood Restaurant have relaunched it as the Seafood Ristorante serving seafood dishes with an Italian twist. A striking contemporary glass structure perched on the St Andrews foreshore it is open all day from midday offering a fine dining menu, or you can pop in for a drink and casual bite with friends. There are magnificent views over West Sands and the North Sea from the glass-walled dining room, and customers can also admire the culinary goings-on in the 'open theatre' kitchen. It's a perfect setting in which to enjoy the pick of Scotland's seafood.

Seared hand-dived scallops are served as a first course with a citrus salad, grape and hazelnut dressing, or you might prefer a salad of lobster and mango with chilli sauce and parsley pesto. To follow there's generally a choice of soup (perhaps cream of Tayside asparagus) or Kilbrandon oysters, then it's on to grilled turbot with a soft herb crust, Savoy cabbage and Sauternes sauce or seared fillet of wild sea bass with roasted fennel, truffle-scented cauliflower purée and a curry and aniseed oil.

Meat and game appear briefly in the shape of – say – roast Gressingham duck breast with leg confit, red onion marmalade and a red wine and thyme jus, while desserts could be anything from rum pannacotta with mango coulis to caramelised lemon tart with orange sorbet and passion fruit. The wine list is a clued-up list of classics and contemporary goodies, with plenty offered by the glass.
