A new Spanish Restaurant has been open for two months in what I consider the top position at Holdfast Shores at Glenelg on the leeward side of Sammy's iconic Fish Restaurant.
That means it is away from the prevailing winds, which we all know can be brutal in Adelaide, if taken over the whole seasonal year, and yet still facing north to gain a pleasant view of the coast, and the traditionally fascinating entrance to the Patawolonga.
The food was good, not great, but I chose a lower priced item. It was tasty, and there was plenty, but the beef portions were a little too big, and not completely tender. But the presentation with rice and a Jalapeno Mustard dressing was lovely. I think next time I will choose something a little more Spanish, perhaps the Chorizo or Seafood.
And did I mention the view, gently shaded setting on the marina side of the restaurant strip, looking north along the pristine blue coast with the occasional motor launch in the channel on its way home?
So the verdict is I will be back, to find better menu options, and to enjoy the ambience of perhaps the best restaurant location in Adelaide.
