A year ago I wrote a less than flattering blog on a dining experience at Sirens of the Sea in Davis Bay. As you can imagine, living in a small community, I took a bit of heat for my criticism, both in person and through comments left on my blog.
But I was simply stating the facts. This blog is all about providing an honest guide for visitors to the Sunshine Coast. The dining experience didn’t measure up to my expectations and I wasn’t about to cover it up for fear of offending someone.
I was back there today and I’m pleased to say that “up” is the operative word, as in they have definitely picked things up. First off, their Bennies … now made with freshly prepared Hollandaise and two perfectly poached eggs, cooked exactly as ordered. This one, called an ABC came with a fresh, sliced Avocado, some crisp Bacon, and delicately sprinkled with Chives. It was accompanied with, as you can see from the image, a very, very generous helping of roasted potatoes. Tasty indeed, but far too many for my waistline… some more fresh fruit would have been my preference.
It was just a bit before noon and while my dining partner ordered breakfast I was more interested in exploring other parts of the menu. The chicken wrap was one of the specials for the day so I gave it a try and as the saying goes “I wasn’t disappointed.” The chicken had been seasoned, battered and deepfried giving it a flavourful crunch which paired off nicely with a healthy portion of crisp lettuce. A tangy, creamy sauce brought these two elements together quite nicely. It also came with the requisite generous portion of hand cut fries, of which I was only able to eat less than half. But I confess, I could have ordered a more healthy salad instead.
So having come back to the Sea, I can now honestly say that I will return again. The food was well prepared, the service prompt and friendly, and the cost of our brunch quite reasonable… two thumbs up!!
