Just returned from a week on the island and had some great chow.
Unfortunately, we returned to an old favourite, Rick's Fish and Chips in St Peters, and were really disappointed.
There were many pluses though.
We dined one night at Dalvay By The Sea. The meal was fabulous and although pricey the portions are huge. An absolute must try is their sticky date cake with toffee sauce.
We went on another Chow posting to Brehauts in Murray Harbour for their chowder. Rich and hot with huge chunks of seafood and served with fresh bread or a fluffy tea biscuit.
We had lots to eat in Victoria. Delicous peppermint chocolates and a heavenly Factory Coffee (they coat the glass with melted chocolate, pour in coffee and top with real whipped cream). For lunch we ate take-out from a small hut across from the wharf called Seaview . We had the fish and chips: fresh cut fries with the skin still on, fresh lightly seasoned coldslaw and huge tender portions of fish coated in a fluffy beer batter (I believe) flavoured with herbs.
