Today we headed into the city for lunch with some friends. The weather was simply stunning so we decided to spend our afternoon at City Beach to enjoy the sunshine, incredible views and the best beach bar- Clancy’s Fish Bar.
Clancy’s is located right on the beach front with the most amazing panoramic views of City Beach. We were seated at a tall, round bar bench so even though we were right at the front, we had a perfect view of the sun, sand and surf. Although the outside view is spectacular, the interior is equally incredible. Our drink orders were taken almost instantly so that we could enjoy a crisp and cold wine/beer while we were deciding on what to eat.
The menu was extensive and everything sounded delicious. I watched a few orders come out prior to placing my order and everything looked impressive, so I wasn’t too worried about my choice. Our friends ordered the grilled fish and chips and the fish tacos for their main, the American also chose the battered fish tacos which came served on a soft tortilla, tomato, corn & coriander salsa, chipotle, lime and sour cream. Of course, I couldn’t decide! I was torn between the warm octopus salad and poached lime chicken salad. I asked the waiter for his recommendation and he straight away suggested the lime poached chicken salad which was tossed with soba noodles, peanuts, tatsoi, shoots, snow peas with a dressing of ginger and soy sauce. The boys decided to share a few entrees also. They chose the baked corn, jalapeño & cheese dip served with corn chips and the Clancy’s specialty – Fried Mice, which was panko crumbed jalapeños served with salsa and sour cream.
The meals came out in a timely fashion, all looking equally delicious. The portions were massive- the $15 fish tacos came as a trio and my salad bowl was as big as a serving dish! Everyone was happy with their choice in meal and I don’t think a single one of us finished the entire serving! The service was second to none, with our waiter continually topping up our water bottle with cold water and offering more drinks as needed.
Clancy’s Fish Bar is the perfect venue for any occasion. Perhaps to meet up with friends, have a lazy Sunday drink or even a mid-week coffee catch up! I noticed posters with live music advertised on Friday evenings- what an awesome way to end the week! Although, the breakfast menu looked great too and the bar was well stocked with local and imported beer and wines, even a Sunday session would be perfect here.
Thanks for having us Clancy’s!
