Above the overseas passenger terminal sits Quay. The name alone sends goosebumps down the spine of any foodie; it's always on the 'to try one day' list and anyone who goes must report in full detail to all others.
The meal began with an amuse bouche - cubes of raw fish in a shot glass... even my non-seafood eating boyfriend downed this one...it was just that good.
I won't detail too much further as the experience from start to finish really needs to be done in person. However, there are both seafood and non-seafood options for diners to choose from for each course.
the lobster is delicious, the crab is phenomenal and the Snow Egg (of Masterchef fame) ... indescribably good - the one dish combines multiple textures, tastes and even temperatures to create a memorable dessert, and one that could not even be matched by another Quay creation - the 8 textured chocolate cake (which melts before the eyes).
Excellent Samantha, it sounds like an amazing experience. I would love to try that chocolate cake dessert especially. It looks almost molten. Was it as good as it looks?
If the weather was warmer, would it have been possible to eat outside or is that area reserved for drinks only?

It was decadently rich! If you're only going to try one dessert - go for the snow egg, I'd say!
To be honest I cant remember if the outside was large enough to eat, I think it was though.
