There are a lot of seafood restaurants out there of varying qualities and prices, and some are definitely better than others (as this video details). But how do you know which one is the best? Here’s our tips on how to pick the best seafood restaurant to eat at.
Read the reviews
Reviews are the best way to tell whether a seafood restaurant will be good, though to be fair, they are not the end all be all. A seafood restaurant that gets, say, a 4.
5, you may be the rare 1, and vice versa with a 2.5. One thing you should make sure to do, however, is check to see what the reviews are saying, and the disparity between 1s and 5s. Often, the more measured reviews tell us the most.
Check the type of seafood
Not all seafood is the same, and different cultures and ethnicities may do seafood differently. If you want to go for a safe option, stick to categories you’re familiar with. You might even be able to go to a relatively cheaper place if you know what to expect. But if you want to experiment, I’d recommend trying the best option you can get (within your budget, anyway). It might not be your first choice for a seafood restaurant, but it’s a good way to try out a specific type of cuisine.
