Well back to the energy city and first stop was the Garlic Press.New chef and menu to try. Entree of blue cod was below average in quantity but did give humor when they bought out cutlery as four small cuts and it was all gone...what was there was nice, next the duck...first class, loved it again. Food and people make or break a restaurant, the staff are first class, friendly, on the ball and a total pleasure to be around. Keep up the good work.

The menu and decor where amazing. An experience that locals know of but visitors need to try. You won't be disappointed, also a menu to suit all tastes.

My one and only meal at the Garlic Press was nothing exciting - I was expecting an amazing meal after reviews from friends but I just didnt think it was that great. The service left alot to be desired and my chicken was a little overcooked and dry. I probably wont go back again.
