Casual restaurant by the Marriott's pool:
The Fish Bar has become one of our favourite restaurants in HK. As seafood lovers, we adore the restaurant's philosophy of "serving simply fresh fish", and they get extra points for sourcing their seafood from sustainable sources. The menu is simple, but there is something for every tastebuds, including a few non-seafood options. 'Today's Catch' is written up on several blackboards, and staff will helpfully advise which ones are better char-grilled, beer-battered or pan-fried. And there is the choice of creamy mashed potato, fries or baked potato.
Our 3-year-old loved the Crispy-fried Calamari, served with a jar of Fish Bar tartar sauce. Actually, we adults loved it too. Crispy and delicious, it wasn't greasy at all:
We had to order the Boston Lobster Club Sandwich on Toasted Brioche when we saw it on the menu. It came with sweet potato fries, which I thought was more yummy than the usual fries:
The sandwich came with large juicy morsels of sweet lobster meat, luscious soft mango, crunchy cucumber and crisp daikon, offset nicely by the slight bitterness of the arugula. It was a good sandwich, though hubby thought that the mango sweetness overpowered the lobster's flavour:
Char-grilled Yellow-fin Tuna with Baked Potato (the garnishes were served on the side - see next photo). Don't let the simple appearance of this fillet fool you - the fish was grilled perfectly to medium-rare, and it literally melted on the tongue:
Sliced green onion, crispy bacon bits and sour cream for the baked potato, thoughtfully served on the side with the health-conscious (me, not hubby) in mind:
We were served vegetable side dishes with our meal - leafy salad, buttered sweet corn kernels and creamed spinach. I particularly enjoyed the creamy spinach:
Excellent food and fantastic staff - it would go against our nature to dislike the Fish Bar.
