Although the day was miserable, the meal was thoroughly enjoyable. The waiter was friendly and attentive, checking on us regularly. The starter, potato and leak soup, was delicious, although there definitely needed to be more soup and less bread. The main, beef served three ways, was good, but I did find some of the meat very fatty and the dish was quite rich. Lastly the desert, apple crumble, was the best by far. The pastry was crispy and light, and the flavours were just amazing. While it is a bit pricey, I would definitely treat myself to a meal here again.

The weather wasn't great but that did not change the ambience of the restaurant.

The food was delicious. The starter was a potato and leak soup in a sourdough roll. The soup was perfect for the weather and we felt that there needed to be more soup for the amount of bread we were given with the soup. I had the beef 3 ways for mains. The fettuccine was over cooked but other than that, it was incredible! The dessert was the perfect way to end off the meal. The apple crumble was not too rich.

Overall a really delightful experience and we will definitely be back at Shimmy for another meal!

Although food was of limited quantity under the Restaurant Week special, the calamari starter and fish mains (yellowtail) was really great. Waitron was not aware of Restaurant Week?
Service was too slow in the beginning as we had been seated for about 20 -25 minutes before our waitron was summonsed to obtain some drinks. It did improve thereafter however our waitron was seldom seen.
The atmosphere was good although a bit noisy so guess not really suited to a quiet romantic dinner. Enjoyable though.
