Its off-the-beaten-path locale is a pain to get to if you don't drive, but parking is a breeze, because so few people come here.
While The Naked Finn is pricey, the food was good enough to make the meal somewhat value-for-money. Especially if you order the set meals. Homage is paid to its natural flavours with the barest touch of the grill, and adornments are kept to a minimum for the spotlight to shine squarely on the premium-grade seafood.
That said, my only gripe about this place was the staggered seating system; we got the earlier dinner slot at 6pm but had to vacate by 8pm for the next seating. I suppose it's a necessary evil, seeing as the restaurant is teeny tiny, and they need the turnover to stay afloat.
1) 7-course Set Dinner
($168++ for 2 pax) starting with a light Mesclun Salad
, tossed in sesame oil and piquant balsamic vinegar dressing and laden with juicy orange slices.
2) Soup of Flambeed New Zealand littleneck Clams
: full-bodied and brimming with the sweetness of the clams.
3) Chilled Vermicelli
: simply seasoned with sesame oil, fried garlic mince and chives and deceptively addictive.
4) Pan-Fried Barramundi Fillets
: loved the contrast of the paper-crisp, golden hued skin against the moist flaky flesh.
5) Grilled Baby Indian Squids
: Chewy but never rubbery, these had a lovely caramelized char.
6) Lightly Grilled Diver-Caught Great Atlantic Scallops
: plump and succulent, and accentuated by fried garlic crisps
7) Grilled Mozambique Lobsters
: sweet with the smoky scent of the grill imbued into the bouncy flesh
