Medici is a bar and restaurant located in Docklands area serving from breakfast to dinner. I have dine in at Medici years a go and held birthday parties on their main area. They do serve decent portions with reasonable price back then so I was pretty excited to discover how they are going right now.

I went in on a weekdays lunch time. The place itself were rather quiet, suitable place for meetings or simply hangouts and catching ups with friends. They do have wide range choice of drinks from beer, wine, and coffee suitable for anytime of the day. Another thing I notice, they have a wide-range choice of meals and pizza. On top of that they also served lunch special menu for only $15 that comes with soft-drinks.

Salmon and Beetroot salad. The salmon was very well-seasoned and smoked, fresh *fav part of the dish*. The dish combined with tasty baby spinach salad which was the best vegetable component of the dish. But quinoa was rather too sweet to my liking, a bit overpowering the overall dish. On top of that the beetroot was sweet as well, adding more sweetness to the dish. I love a lil bit more spinach to balanced out the sweetness.

Fish and Chips. The first thing I tasted was the french fries and they were crispy, not oily. Fish itself was crispy on the outside, but the fish inside was slightly overcook with a mushy texture. Even though they are seasoned pretty well with salt, and squeezed lemon helped to elevate the flavour. The tartar sauce was rather bland, did not add much flavour to the dish, rather underwhelming

At first, the staffs were clearly under prepared when we first came in, perhaps because they were not expecting customers to come since docklands area were rather quiet, even though it was 12pm  which is lunch time. As we go through the menu, the staff who served us seemed to have limited knowledge to go through the specials and other dishes. But she was well-trained in serving (offered plates to share, water, served both dishes at the same time). Overall, nice place to hangout, would like to come back to have a try on their dessert (chocolate fondant) and pizza, chips are great for snacks.
