Herbert Samuel Restaurant Review: Located on the top floor of the Goan House opposite the Mediterranean Sea, Herbert Samuel appeals with a tasteful modern beige interior set against the backdrop of the blue water. The menu changes frequently based on available local produce, but a staple is the tomato salad starter, a vibrant blend of varietal tomatoes served with salty Turkish cheese, sliced radish, onion and silky egg yolk. The “Infamous Balkan Shrimp Salad” seats grilled shrimp on a bed of fresh spinach and cilantro, charred okra and grilled sweet onion, with a garnish of yogurt and olive tapenade. For mains, don’t miss out on chef Yonatan Roshfeld’s whole-fish dishes, which vary based on the freshest catch. Whole sea bass stuffed with shaved fennel, light gnocchi and grilled onion is a lovely presentation of textures and flavors. The same attention to detail goes into each unique dessert, and the capacious bar is an optimal spot to fancy a cocktail or sip some wine from a fine selection.
