Adelaide, South Australia

Louca's Seafood Grill is a one-of-its-kind restaurant on Adelaide's Hutt Street. While its neighbours offer some ocean fare, this eatery is dedicated to it. Do not expect glam seafood though, credit card crunching crustaceans and sexy saucing are not their way. You will find no fuss fish and platters of char-grilled goodies. Smart casual is order of the day in dress, décor and dishes.

Do not let Louca's modern feel mislead you into the menu. The room's contemporary appearance is not tell-tale of the food served within. Dishes are not pretentious with produce or presentation, rather straight forward. Simplicity dictates their content and construction. Some old school garnishes are present – barely dressed side salads with red onion rings, carved lemon "baskets", and curly parsley may turn up some noses. Focus on the kitchen's strength – whole fresh fish, well cooked. It is also nice to see fillet options on display, before they come to you crumbed, fried or grilled.

Louca's oysters are best enjoyed natural, as some alternatives take a wrong turn with ingredient overload. Retro reappears in some cool-again prawn cocktails, but for a sock-it-to-me experience go for a platter. Skewered octopus, scallops and prawns arrive from the char grill, with calamari, soft shell crab, garfish and tartare sauce. Fries and a "Greek" salad come for the ride. For a city seafood restaurant, prices are reasonable, so your budget and belly should allow for some baklava to finish.

I Hosted a dinner for 10 on the 24th Jan 2015 . 7 meals all got big ticks . 3 meals a very big thumbs down. The garlic prawns ,had by all 3 guests were a great disappointment, the rice was dry and hard and the prawns were more like shrimp in a creamy very salty sauce . Definitely not what you would expect from a seafood restaurant . We eat out most weekends and this dish was more like a cheap pub meal .
