Sea Garden & Grill… I’ve never seen quite so much thought, care and attention

Fresh fish from Cornwall on a plate in Brixton?

That’s just what diners can expect at Sea Garden & Grill in Brixton Village.

This describes my perfect dining set up.

One of the things I love about the location is the intimacy of all the restaurants here.

Feeling lucky to have secured a space in an eatery with limited tables creates an instant atmosphere.

Fish is delivered daily from Cornwall, so it doesn’t come fresher than this.

My only mistake on the evening I visited was to invite a friend who I’d forgotten doesn’t eat fish.

Thankfully, battered fish with tartare sauce was an acceptable choice for her.

I think she meant she doesn’t eat ‘fishy fish’.

For me, the fishier the better, so Tuna Tartar was promptly ordered.

This is my idea of food heaven.

Grilled king prawns marinated in chilli oil, pickled samphire, served on toast was probably the standout dish.

Gin cured salmon, pickled veg, sourdough toast and horseradish cream came a close second.

Actually, I’ve just realised I had the fresh fish platter, which included prawns, salmon and sea bream ceviche, also a good choice.

I like this kind of food because it’s filling protein and so full of fresh flavours.

I also recall a lobster dish, but from memory, it wasn’t in my top three for the night.

Tender stem broccoli, grilled asparagus and fries made for a delightful dinner.

I didn’t have dessert but feel sure pear & apple crumble would have been in order.

Most impressive of all was the dedication of Andre and his team to concocting alcohol-free cocktails.

I’ve never seen quite so much thought, care and attention given.

Dill & lavender mojito was beautifully balanced and refreshing.

I also tried Calm Before The Storm, non-alcoholic Cornish rum, fresh lime & ginger beer, which was a winner.
