[THE LIGHTHOUSE] French food in surreal paradise

The Lighthouse is helmed by Chef Olivier Bellin, born and raised in Brittany.
Brittany is a coastal French town and The Lighthouse showcases the best from the sea just as you would find in Brittany.

From decor to the view, it felt like dining by the sea with the fishing nets and seashells.

I liked the menu because it was evidently authentic French especially the dessert because they have the floating island, grand profiterole and mille feuille.
On the menu, there was seafood from Brittany and lobster parmentier which was expected.

Started with the seafood platter:
It was definitely the star of the show because when it came, there was a familiar smell from the sea mongers and seafood stalls by the beaches.
My favourites had to be the brown shrimps which are eaten with bread and butter.
The little black sea snails were difficult pick them out but they reminded me of some shellfish I had as a kid.
Next was the langoustine which was presented like they were flying.
They were sweet and there was familiar salty taste from the sea which was good.
Fish soup:
The fish soup was thick and rich.
It was so strong that it tasted a bit like crab paste.
Lobster parmentier:
The lobster parmentier was another heavy dish that is best shared and the mashed potato in the middle was divine.
mussels bouchot:
The mussels were fresh and springy and the bread was perfect for soaking the sauce.

We finished with three stunning desserts. My favourite was the mille feuille because it was very similar to the cream slices we get in UK while the Rum baba was extremely strong in alcohol because the guy was very generous and put quite a fair bit in it!
Grand profiterole:
