Stamford Grand: Try a seafood menu that's always fresh

RESH is the order of the day at Captain Cook's Cove restaurant, where there is a new menu every week.

So if you're hankering to get your hands messy with seafood, now is the time.

Food and beverage manager Marc Pennaneach said the restaurant had lowered the price of its seafood buffet to $55 a person during the winter months, until August 25. The offer includes a half bottle of wine.

"You have a choice of sauvignon blanc, chardonnay and shiraz," Mr Pennaneach said.

He said the seafood buffet has been a signature of the Stamford Hotel, where the restaurant is located, since it first opened.

"We have Balmain bugs, oysters, prawns, mussels, crab, smoked salmon," Mr Pennaneach said.

"We've also got hot dishes, roasted meats, pasta, vegetables.

"The hot dishes are rotated weekly, meaning regular patrons will not get bored.

"We also have a very wide selection of desserts, including mousses, apple pies, gateaus, cakes, slices and jellies, and an extensive cheeseboard."

Mr Pennaneach suggested beginning with the prawns and oysters, which is where he would start.

"I'll always finish off with a cheeseboard to polish off the wine," he said.

He said Captain Cook's Cove was last renovated 18 months ago to include "a state-of-the-art buffet counter which allows us to display all the seafood in a most attractive and fresh manner".

"We've got an outdoor terrace looking onto a lagoon, a very pleasant bar where people can sit and drink before and after the buffet, and we have a very friendly team who know all our regulars and their preferences.

"We can sit well over 150 people comfortably and, on busier days, we extend to two seatings.

"We also have a room package available, where people can book [into the hotel] for a weekend getaway on Friday or Saturday night and they can add the seafood buffet and get a special rate that way."
