Starfish

Went to Starfish last night, and have mixed feelings.
I am only writing about this restaurant because it has had so many good reviews here, and we were disappointed.
The menu was very limited.
I know it changes daily, so perhaps we were there on the chef's day off.
We had:
Malpaque Oysters shared by two(only ones available)
Scallop salad
We had three different fish dishes
All looked exactly the same when presented.
Cod, Sea Bream and Arctic Char, on a
bed of braised/steamed vegetables.
The fish was fresh and tasty, but no excitement, no hidden flavours, just plain fish.
But the worst was the surly service.
At first I thought the attitude was sort of humerous, but it began to grate on our guest's nerves, and she is such an easygoing person.
We came to the conclusion that his sarcastic remarks and attitude were offputting,and to some extent spoiled the evening.
I am curious if this happened to anyone else.
We won't return.
Our conclusion was that for a bit more give me Chiado anytime!
