We met up with some friend one evening at the Catch & The Oyster Bar
right on Stephens Avenue, downtown Calgary inside the Hyatt Regency Calgary Hotel. It's a lovely place and the location is actually larger inside than it looks!
Once we sat down and ordered, they gave us quite a bit of bread and butter. To be honest, we were saving our bellies for the main attraction for this visit.
We started with a bowl of soup, where we ordered their Seafood & Bacon Chowder
and this chowder was jammed pack with seafood and flavours. It was really fresh and delicious with the perfect texture and creaminess without being greasy.
Now, for the main attraction, we got their Large Chilled Seafood Platter
and it's as large and impressive as you can imagine it in your mind, and exceed that image's expectation! This platter had 1 lobster, 4 snow crab clusters, 12 oysters, 16 mussels, 16 clams and 16 large shrimps! The Oysters they gave us was 8 BC and 8 PEI oysters so we can taste the difference. Everything on this plate was so good, and we all over ate - yet couldn't stop eating!
Overall, there's not a bad thing we can think of to say about here! The place was clean, cozy, comfortable, yet casual. The food was fantastic, the service was awesome!
