went to Breadfruit for the first time tonight and sampled most of what they had to offer

Drinks first as that is how you should judge a rum bar

Overall the drinks were average with a couple exceptions - the pours on all the drinks was very light - as a rum bar you would think they would live up to a tiki standard - Trader Vic's this is not RIP

The caprihina was ver good and wel made not overly sweet - this was the best drink of the evening

The strawberry basilica was not wahat I was expecting. It the ladies all loved it and it was a well crafted drink on the sweet side - needed another shot of rum IMO but would be a great pool drink I would recommend trying it

The drinks I would not order again

Estate Mai Tai - served in a Collins glass and it just got worse from there

Rum old fashion - too sweet and too weak - ice for a sip then it gets old no character to the drink

Hemingway daquiri - llight pour but otherwise well balanced - could have been better

Tasting flight south America to Europe - waitress recommended this and it had some new rums I had not tried so gave it a go - again light pour - poor value here and was average at best

On to the food

Scallop app: They were scallops a bit under cooked not the greatest sear and the sauce was unremarkable would pass on this one

Mussels: great mussels cooked perfectly with a delicious sauce and nice toast points - would certainly order these again - nice change of pace from the normal French white wine preparation and the mussels were the star of the show

Service: was very good - they did up sell everything as some people had reported on yelp - don't mind that - very profession courteous and knowledgable that was the best part of the evening along with the decor - very nice inside

Overall rating: worth a go if you are in the area to see if you like it - don't think we would return again but was worth a shot
