Food

For diners looking for the widest selection of seafood from around Asia, The Watercourt presents the best menu on Phuket. The culinary odyssey begins with the large display of fresh and imported seafood. It includes kumamoto, fine de Claire and Irish oysters on the half-shell prepared rockefeller, parmigiana, thermidor, grilled or perfectly fresh. Many selections have a Mediterranean accent, such as mallorca seafood zarzuela, a thick stew of tiger prawns, white snapper, mussels, squid and a touch of saffron. The classic seafood paella with saffron is made with slow-cooked Spanish bomba rice with squid, prawns, mussels and blue crab. The seafood display also offers blue crab, Canadian lobster and a variety of fish and shellfish all cooked to taste. There is a limited number of land options but roasted loin of lamb and kurobuta pork are worth trying. However, this is definitely a menu for those who love the treasures of the sea.
