We settled on 7 tapas because, well, we love to eat and had a hard time deciding on what to order. As always, I got a half dozen raw oysters which disappeared as quickly as they came. Michael is hoping that I'll get off my bivalve bender because he just can't slurp them down. However, he did the Baked Oyster Casino, four oysters with bacon, boursin and parm cheese.
Also on the order were lamb "lollipops" which sound wonderful when the name rolls off your tongue but I just don't like the name. But Michael is English and when there's lamb on the menu, its bound to end up on his plate. Karen is not so sure she would order them again. But we will order the Kobe sliders and tempura fish fingers again.
Although Embargo is know for its martinis, this couple didn't order them. Instead, we downed our usual - Bacardi and Coke for Michael and a Goose vodka and tonic for Karen and they were average in price, strength and taste.
Later in the evening, the place turns a bit more lively with music and dancing till 1.00am. They do have some great specials so be sure to check out their website.

This, of course, is only our opinion. If you have eaten here, we ask that you tell us all about it (and upload photos, if you like) in the hope that independent reviews of local restaurants will be helpful to other couples as they plan their own trips.
