Our philosophy is rooted in a genuine and life-long love of food, wine and good times around the table. At Ortega Fish Shack and Bar, we aim to provide an atmosphere where you can really relax and enjoy an evening of fine food, fine wine and great service, that won't break the bank. Our decor is quirky, designed as much to entertain as it is to promote a feeling of ease, while our service is slick and professional. Enjoy a cold beer from our eclectic list, or a fine sherry to start the evening. We have one of the best beer lists in town.
A marvelously appointed temple of delicious Southeast Asian food. Expect 'packed and buzzy in the evening' with 'funky cocktails' and a 'surprisingly good wine list'. Want Eatertainment? 'watch chefs in action in the open kitchen'. No reservations in the evening but 'worth the wait'.
Our menu is built around what is in season. Nearly everything is made from scratch and in-house; we churn our own butter, make our own bacon, sausages and sauces and you can find our chefs, pickling, smoking, curing, and fermenting to achieve our desired results.
The jewel in the crown of the open kitchen is the Pira charcoal oven, which was imported from Spain and enables food to be cooked simply, with rich and solid flavours.
We choose to work with local growers, and support like-minded sustainability focussed business’s; We use produce that is predominantly organic, all meat on our menu is free range and ethically raised and our Seafood has been caught using low-impact sustainable methods.
