Phonecia Gourmet Restaurant

 

Last night, my sweet husband took me out for a nice dinner.

We tried a new place (to us) in the cute little downtown area near the beach in Ocean Springs. per a friend’s request, we pulled into Phoenicia Gourmet Restaurant. It’ was in a small older building, but the waiters were all dressed up in bowties, and there were candles on the tables and flowers. It is a Mediterranean restaurant mainly. Check this out on the wall.

While we were deciding what we wanted, this was put on our table. It was pretty good!

I decided on a steak, and Bobby got fish, amberjack I think.

The steak and potatoes were REALLY good. The veggies were just so-so, and Bobby really enjoyed his meal as well. It was a relaxing atmosphere, and a live musician even started playing midway through our meal. We left full and happy!

Overall: Food was really good, atmosphere was also good. Service we just so-so. We had some teenager who kept talking too fast I couldn’t understand him (boy do I sound old) but we had other workers refill our water, clear our plates, etc. and they were all very friendly. One drawback, it was pretty pricey. Definitely not your every weekend type meal. I would go back here for a special occasion though (or if I won the lottery!)

I am about to go run ten miles with Bobby, fingers crossed we make it and I have no knee pain!

*Don’t forget, Monday I am hosting a raffle with all kinds of goodies, all to benefit Team in Training!

    Wow, that all looked so good! My favorite thing about eating out is 1) no clean up…LOL. 2) I get so bored with cooking sometimes that I can try other things and then get new ideas for home.

  2. Looks yummy! Is that Hummus? :0)

  3. my favorite thing about eating out is trying new things
    and OMG tooo funny to the kid talking so fast and you thinking you sound old by saying that…try having a hearing issue AND being 43 it makes one feel REAAAAAAAAAALLY old! :(
