Maestral rerun

——-02/03/2012——-

Another day, another dinner at the same restaurant  but this time with a different friend. I was excited to go back to Maestral because there was still so much to try!

Entree~

Seafood stuffed avocadoavocado stuffed with smoked trout, prawns, smoked salmon and dressed with a Mediterranean sauce ($12.50) My friend loves avocado  and she absolutely loves seafood, this was the obvious choice for her. She really enjoyed it and ate every last bit.

From the specials board~

Brudet fish stew – fish fillets, mussels, prawns and scampi ($31.00) I don’t usually order a main for an entree, but I didn’t think a stew would fill me up that much.  This was such a rich and flavoursome stew with the seafood still retaining their sweet fresh flavour, but I wouldn’t order this as a main though.

Main~

Maestral seafood platter for 2– Catch of the day, kilpatrick oysters, lightly fried potatoes, soft shell crab, jumbo prawns, scampi, fresh garlic aioli and a fresh garden salad ($90.00). I couldn’t help myself but order this again because it is a great way to sample a range of seafood and my friend hadn’t eaten here before. We loved every part of the platter.

A forever busy restaurant so booking is essential. The seafood platter can be seen as a little oily but I definitely liked it. I was torn between ordering the platter, lobster mornay and a steak though, but there is always next time!
