We haven't been to the Captain's Table for a couple of years, but I always remembered their lamb shank as being one of the best from past visits, so we went for an early dinner on the Thursday evening at the start of the 2013 Easter weekend.
Access to the restaurant is via a narrow staircase behind the bar, very cool and it overlooks the naval harbour making for a really chilled ambiance. I was quite surprised to be told that the lamb shank wasn't available, considering that it was the start of a long weekend, with plenty of visitors around that seemed a bit short sighted and not the most efficient planning, but what do I know?
I had the fillet on garlic mash, which was outstandingly good, others in our party had the Thai seafood curry, which was also pronounced to be of a high standard.
It was a quiet evening, with only another 2 tables occupied, which for this venue is half full as it's very small, but it was a really good night out with excellent food, and not at all expensive. I can highly recommend it.
