Amazing dinner at Mooncusser. Beautiful, evening-sun filled room on the 3rd floor. Standouts included both raw preps (tuna and stripper), the swordfish, and the crab and pea curry. The wine pairing was also very good, and a great value. Desserts were easily the weakest part of the meal. Overall, highly recommend

My husband and I enjoyed a birthday dinner here for the first time. We were adventurous and it paid off. Everything was delicious and I felt full and satisfied even though portions are smaller to share. The waiter was smart, funny and made the experience great for us. He even went extra mile to put a candle on dessert even though I didn’t request it. Parking was a bit daunting but I did find a spot within a few minutes of hunting. It was a meal I won’t forget and I look forward to returning for more special occasions.
