This was our second visit to Messina, however we did not enjoy this visit as much as the last. The dining room is disappointing and lacks atmosphere even when full as it was on the night of our visit. My wife and I were going to have the tasting menu however with so many strong fish elements to the menu we ordered from the main menu. We had a delicious duck tartar, a very underwhelming crayfish tartar with coconut foam and small pieces of pig cheek in a nice broth which was lovely. We both took a fancy for our main course of neck of baby goat with pickled veg, unfortunately it was bland and tasteless. To finish we shared a bon-bon in banana cream, it consisted of 4 tiny bon-bon’s smaller than a malteser in a tablespoon of banana cream. We played safe with our wine and had a pleasant bottle of Muga. The total bill was 150€ excluding service, we left a good tip as the service itself was excellent.
