The entire experience at Mastros from start to finish was excellent. I had the lobster bisque and the sautéed shrimp. I assumed the lobster bisque would be a small serving, but it turned out to be a plentiful portion with slices of garlic bread perfect for dipping. The sautéed shrimp was perfectly cooked and the sauce was flavorful. The shrimp dish also came with garlic bread and I could not help but use my bread to sop up every last bit of that rich, creamy, and delicious sauce.
But can we talk about Mastros signature butter cake? The butter cake serving is massive! It comes with ice cream, whipped creamed and fresh fruits. The taste of the combination of the 3, I cannot put into words. The cake was warm and the ice cream was creamy and just the right level of sweet, the fruit choice was fresh with a tartness and sweetness that paired perfectly with the ice cream and cake. It was like watching the sun rise on a secluded beach on a quiet island with the one you love. It was a love story in my mouth.
I strongly recommend Mastros. After my disappointing experience at Bar Americain, it was refreshing to find a restaurant where its food and service match its acclamation.
