BARCHICK SAYS

The fourth place from our favourite shellfish loving brothers is as good as it gets. What sets this place apart from the rest of them is the seawater tank behind the bar - filled with over 1,400 shellfish it’s like you’re picking your meal straight from the ocean! Dive on in (or not). The décor is old skool fish shop with slick green leather bar stools and fish scale tiles. The best spot in the house is at the marble bar, order in your oysters from the selection of 9 types and then watch them get their shuck on right in front of you. Next best is the "octopus" table at the back, it’s got oversized tentacles hanging from the ceiling and enough room for a bunch of seafood hungry mates.

Pick your lobster/crab/prawns from the tank but not before you've started with a glass of sherry. Their cocktail list is made up of classics: Sazeracs, Negronis, Martinis and Aviations but it's their gin list that you want to hit if you’re after oysters. There are five beers on tap, a sexy selection of bottled brews and a sh*t load of wine to choose from. Finish with a boozy pudding or make like BarChick and end the night with one final oyster… sexy.

Check out the whole ecosystem of tanks on your way to the loos, that is oyster care at its best! Oh and make sure you say a big thanks to the staff - we think you'll agree that these guys have nailed the art of good service.
