"Great hospitality"

food: 8 service: 8 ambience: 8
Great atmosphere and the food was super delicious. Waiter was also on point.

"Restaurant Week Lunch"

food: 6 service: 10 ambience: 6
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.

"Delicious lunch at Shimmy "

food: 8 service: 10 ambience: 8
The service was great and our waiter was very friendly and accommodating! 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!

"Dining Experience"

food: 8 service: 4 ambience: 7
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.

"night out at Shimmy's"

food: 5 service: 6 ambience: 6
When we arrived we were seated and given menu's, I needed to ask about the restaurant of the week menu...then the starters took very long to come, but that was our best meal of the night...cocktails were great but pricy... the main was disappointing as mayo was like butter, desert was the worse meal of the night...staff was not very informative about the venue it self...beautiful location and outside area, but for dining no...

"Better as a club, than as a restaurant"

food: 6 service: 8 ambience: 6
I made a reservation at the Shimmy Beach Club during the Restaurant Week. I heard a lot of good stories about the place, so I went there with some expectations. The location At first I thought we were driving in the wrong direction, but luckily the building is clearly visible (once your at the end of the dock) with the special lighting on the outside. Parking space was reasonable, but I can imagine that it can get a little crowded during busier periods. The staff We were welcomed by a friendly lady at the front desk. She offered us to have some drinks in the lounge first, but we asked her if she could bring us straight to our table. That wasn't a problem. Unfortunately we were placed in the middle of 3 large groups (of about 30 people), while the rest of the restaurant was empty. I actually had to yell to my partner, so that he could hear me. So, just as a suggestion for the staff... next time, don't put small tables between huge groups. It kind of ruined the coziness and relaxed atmosphere for me. Our waiter for the evening was very polite and we had no complaints about him at all. The food We had the choice of a 2-course meal. You could choose Starter/Main, or Main/Dessert. Me and my partner both choose for the Main/Dessert. I had the line-fish as a main and the chocolate 3-ways as a dessert. The fish was very nice, but it was placed on top of the chips. Although it looked very nice, it caused the chips to be very soft and wet. The dessert was very nice, with all the different kinds of chocolate taste. All in all, it was a reasonable evening. But I think I'd rather spend my day drinking cocktails at Shimmy Beach Club... As a restaurant, it could do better.
