A friend and I dined at the Lord Bennett last night. She had the seafood platter $31 US, I had the crab leg fettuccini $30.

For the price, I was unimpressed with my meal - no complaints on the crab leg portion in the dish but the garlic in the sauce completely overpowered any white wine aspect. It was unbalanced. The side vegetables were overcooked.

Given the price and implied upscale ambiance I found it odd that while the wait staff generally wore a uniform of sorts and the hostesses was nicely dressed, the bartender donned a casual purple t shirt.

The shrimp bisque ($4 for a cup) was rather flat imho though my friend thought it very good; the spotted shrimp cocktail ($13) was good (shrimp not overdone and still moist).

Overall I expected a menu with lot more emphasis on the local seafood options, which I'd have gladly paid for.

Excellent food selections-try the prawns-they are like lobster!
Every table has a view of the ocean.

Some of the reviews I read were so-so. We thought the restaurant was very good. The views all around of the ocean and coastline are beautiful. The food was very good. As one might expect, the predominance of food was in the seafood category. Very nicely presented.

We had a wonderful dinner out with friends. Both the service and food were excellent. We sat upstairs with a view of the ocean and each ordered something different. We will definitely go back when in the area.
