Restaurant Review: Claypots

Location: 213 Barkly St, St Kilda
Phone: (03) 9534 1282
Cuisine: Seafood
Overall Impression: 6/10

Having been to the restaurant part of Claypots and having had a satisfying dining experience, I was surprised to hear about the $5 seafood Paella at the bar section of Claypots. It invoked my curiosity, so J and I decided to check it out last Sunday night. The Paella is available 7 days a week from 6pm to 7pm. The trick is that only one giant paellera is cooked and served per night. It is on a first come first serve basis.

The Paella was delicious. Every element was cooked very well. The calamari was tender and delicious, the prawns and mussels tasted fresh. The dish as a whole was perfectly seasoned and was smacked filled with flavour. But as would be expected, the serving is small, as you can see.
Overall, Claypots serves consistently good seafood (even when it comes to $5 paellas at the bar!). Nothing spectacular or revolutionary but it is nontheless, good and honest seafood.
