George’s Paragon Seafood Restaurant – CBD

Blue and white like the meeting of the Aegean Sea with the shore, blue and white like the houses of Santorini, blue and white like the tables and walls of George’s Paragon.

The glistening Brisbane River and the Eagle Street Pier Markets set a delightful atmosphere whilst dining on this perfect Sunday afternoon. It was busy at lunch, with many people taking advantage of the Lunchtime Half-Price Special.

We started with Taramasalata (Red Caviar Mousse) served with Toasted Pita. The herb pita bread was crisp yet soft, and elevated by the creamy, salty Taramasalata.

Mum had her eyes on the Kanoni – Grilled Snapper, King Prawn and Half Barbecued Moreton Bay Bug served with chips and buttered vegetables.

I had the grilled Snapper served with vegetables, baked potatoes and mash. The fish was tender and well cooked, but would have liked to have seen some skin on the fish and more Greek to this dish rather than the standard vegetables.

Dad had the Special of the Day: Baby Whole Snapper served with baked potatoes and Greek Salad. The charred crispy skin with the moist white flesh and a squeeze of lemon, it was most enjoyable.

Orange had the Barbecued Prawns on Rice with Salsa and Chips.

Overall, fresh seafood executed in various styles and served generously, but would have liked the focus on Greek authenticity rather than that of fine dining.
