Richmond Osters (Richmond) 05/2015

 Mother in Law's choice for Mothers Day lunch was Richmond Oysters because she really wanted that favourite of the 70's, Prawn Cocktail.
We were greeted by Caleb, the manager, who knows us well, seated and the Mums offered a glass of bubbly. The new menu offers plenty of choices. 
Mum in Law started with oysters Mornay and garlic bread
while Sandra chose a chowder which I shared.
I loved it. Full of goodies, big lightly cooked muscles, scallops, salmon and more. I liked it better than the tinned chowder we were served at Fisherman;s Wharf in San Francisco. 
Fish and Chips was what I expected. There was a choice of fish and cooking methods. I picked battered flake. Nothing to complain about. 

Rather than leaving the chef to cook the whole baby barramundi Sandra suggested  the way she thought she would like it. This turned out to be a mistake. It did not show the fish at its best.

The prawn cocktail was just right and left Mum in Law more than satisfied.

Instead of dessert she finished with a frangelico affogato which was beaut too.
This is an unpretentious restaurant, food is fresh simply prepared and fairly priced.
Score:13.75 /20
