Fresh seafood and magnificent views to "tempt' you
Last night we rediscovered an 'old' local restaurant with a new name. Tempest Restaurant, formerly known as Morgan's Seafood restaurant, operates from the same location offering fresh local seafood.

The occasion was my husband's birthday and as he loves seafood, we decided to try it out again. Arriving just on sunset, we were blessed with the beautiful colours of the sky overlooking the local trawlers.

Sitting on the deck with a glass of wine in hand, enjoying the sunset, we were in for a great night of dining.



The menu boasts locally caught seafood, straight from those trawlers we were looking at. The menu changes seasonally and is always designed to uit the customers and climate of Redcliffe.

After studying the menu, our party of 7 made their choices and then sat back and waited for our meals to arrive. Our waitstaff were friendly and knowledgeable about the menu and options.
Starting with tender calamari, flash fried and served with garlic lemon yoghurt and herb salt ($15) and garlic bread as an entree, we looked forward to the mains. The calamari was truly melt in your mouth yummy.

Our mains arrived and we were not disappointed. Our daughter and her husband shared the Moreton Platter for 1 at $65. The platter was enough for 2 and had all the favourites including oysters, prawns, bugs, fish, calamari and sushi - served with sauces, chips, salad, tropical fruits and citrus.

A popular item on the menu was the option of 'making your own plate'. This consisted of choosing a protein (fish, meat or chicken) then choosing your sides and sauces to accompany it.
My choice was fish of the day - Snapper ($17) with steamed vegetables ($7) and half a bug tail ($9).

My husband and son chose the Barramundi ($13) with vegetables and seasoned chips ($3) and Creamy garlic prawns ($8)

The choices were endless and everyone got exactly what they wanted and by all the clean plates at the end of the meal, we all enjoyed them.

We had a quick look at the dessert menu but our stomachs were too full and satisfied to order dessert, but may have to come back another time to try. Our waitress had suggested the Lava Cake, which sounded divine with chocolate and raspberry lava cake with chocolate ice cream, fresh raspberries and chantilly cream.

Being a Saturday night we also were entertained with live music, which apparently happens every Saturday night. Bookings can be made online or by calling directly. Bookings are strongly advised as it was a full house when we went. There is plenty of parking and the bar has a wide selection of wines and beers and cocktails to enjoy.
It is open 7 days for lunch and dinner and the Teppanyaki restaurant still operates on the same premise.



So if you haven't tried this new seafood restaurant in Scarborough, then hopefully this may tempt you to try.
