Thalassa restaurant review: 28/6/14

By Christian Crowther

What do you want from a Mediterranean seafood restaurant? Probably the very freshest muscles caught within a stone’s throw of the joint and a fine glass of fruity Sauvignon blanc to wash them down. 

If being greedy, perhaps a cheek-caressing breeze blowing through your lofty balcony perch, while you survey azure seas.

Sadly, this isn’t the cliff tops of Santorini or the Almalfi coast for that matter; it’s Thalassa restaurant in Southgate, north London. Not a white horse in sight, although there is a Bank of Cyprus situated opposite.

But what it lacks in views this place makes up for in flavoursome Mediterranean cuisine.

Particularly pleasing is their outstanding-value lunch deal – two courses for £8.95 – which left myself and two pals extremely satisfied with our Saturday selection. A well-seasoned tomato-y sauce stood out in a classic seafood starter, before fish, chips and mushy peas (with a twist) arrived.

Although the advertised deviation from this English staple wasn’t immediately obvious, all components were skilfully cooked.The cod was crispy and succulent in the correct order with a citrus zing (that twist?). Ample hand-cut chips, served on pristine white plates and a dainty pot of soft green goodness finished it off.

Six pieces of porcelain cleared of their contents (minus the crustaceans’ abodes) was testament to a good meal.Diligent staff and a decent house white kept things ticking over.

If simple, hearty seafood in a pleasant yet unrefined setting is your bag, Thalassa is a plate-smashing success... but don’t pay full whack, get there for luncheon.
